Great cruise experience. Helped by great weather. Were able to sunbathe for all but the last day. Despite embarcation being at the old pier we found it seamless and worth the effort on the app up front. The app and wifi worked perfectly. Food was superb in the MDR we used the one near vines. Good quality. Perfect portion.sizes and brilliant service. We went to Sabatinis twice. Food and ...

An Incredibly Relaxing Cruise

We chose this cruise because we have sailed to Hawaii five times previously and we love all the sea days. It is also a great way to get a taste of the islands: Oahu, Kauai, Maui, and Hawaii. As an added bonus, our favorite Hawaiian ambassadors Brian and Rowena Vasquez were onboard, teaching ukulele, hula and a wide variety of Hawaiian-themed crafts. They embody the Spirit of Aloha and really ...

This was my first time to cruise with Princess. I had a good impression about the cruise. The foods were so delicious and plenty of choices. The decorated deserts were so beautiful and of course it tasted so yummy. I really recommend everyone must try a vacation with princess cruise. I do not eat breakfast often but on this cruise I never skipped breakfast. They have so much foods to eat. The ...

ROYAL Princess - not quite up to "Royal Class" expectation

We have sailed over 300 days on Princess ships and chose to take this as the Royal Princess is a "Royal Class Princess ship" sailing out of San Francisco. No question it is a beautiful ship, spotlessly clean. We had had earlier experience in 2022 on Regal Princess in Europe and expected the same standard on the ROYAL Princess. To our complete and utter dismay we were in for a huge disappointment ...

As cruisers since 2008 and having done 16 total, this being our 17th and 4th Princess cruise I'm sorry to say going was a mistake. 15 day Hawaii round trip from San Francisco, flew in day of the cruise and Uber from OAK to the pier #27, split fare with our 2 cruise buds and the total Uber was only $66 + tip. Ship was fine, clean, maintained, employees friendly but all the old covid protocols ...

Excellent Cruise- the opposite of every negative review I read on this site

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

This was our first cruise with Princess, and my second cruise ever (the first cruise was with Carnival in 2005). Re traveled aboard the Ruby Princess, to the Pacific Northwest. The ship is extremely seaworthy and very beautiful. I have read a lot of negative reviews prior to the cruise, and wanted to post a different review to ease concerns others reading these reviews may have. My only ...

Although I had been fishing in Alaska a few times, my wife had never been there, and were were both excited to experience the beauty of this State, while the glaziers are still prominent. Nothing about this trip disappointed us. We were a little concerned about some of the negative comments we read, specifically regarding the condition of the ship, the food quality, and the concern about ...

We returned to Alaska on Princess because our friends are frequent cruisers on Princess. Alaska is still a great place to cruise even though most of the ports have become McCommercialized with diamond stores and the like. The excursions are a great way to see the sights and we have no criticism there. The staff on the ship was usually top notch and jumping to provide quick and efficient ...

RUBY - not quite a magnificent Gem

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We do wish there was more competition from San Francisco. The weather in Alaska was just appalling except for Sitka. Sitka now has a dock 5 miles out of town. A FREE bus is supposed to run every 15 mins but it is hopeless, disorganized queue jumping, free for all elbow jabbing contest. Expect to queue for hours waiting to return to ship. If there is more than 1 ship in town the guests from both ...

We wanted to go to Alaska, and trip was convient, leaving and returning to San Franciso. I had previously traveled with Princess, but over 10 years ago. More recently with other carriers. We chose this date to see Glacier Bay. The itinerary and service did not disappoint. The menu descriptions were very appealing, but the food was not. The buffet had items like roasted potatoes and others ...
