Princess cabins are well organized and provide ample storage of the cabin's guest capacity. Since the TV has been changed from a corner stand to a wall, that shelf on the stand could use a rail or edging to prevent things from falling off. We didn't have the problem, but it's a obvious hazard. Above I commented on the 3 days without consistent hot water for showers. No excuse for failing to fix that after 2 tries. We prefer forward cabins. The ship's stabilizers help. Also, it's a good appetite generating walk to the stern where dining facilities are located. Read Less
Fantastic First-Timer : Cabin A634
Sail Date: December 2018
Our cabin did not have anyone looking down on us. It was right in the middle, near the back of the ship and hardly felt the ship move at all. Very quiet and never heard the neighbors. Everything was clean and comfortable.

Great room! Very clean and comfortable with a location that's very convenient to the elevator, the buffet, the terrace pool and a laundry room. We were literally right beneath the buffet, but the ship must have great soundproofing because I never heard a sound coming from the restaurant either in my room or out on the balcony. It was nice being so close, because it made it easy to run up and grab a bite before our early morning excursions. I was impressed with the mattress and the bedding in the cabin. The mattress was very plush and the pillows were huge and generously filled. If it weren't for the early morning sunrises in Alaska (4:30 am!!) that the curtains could never quite block out, I would have had great sleep in these beds. If you're sensitive to light when you sleep as I am, I'd recommend bringing a sleep mask. I also loved the closet space in these cabins! There was ample space to hang up all of our clothes, plus some shelves to store shoes and other clothing with space left over to stow our suitcases. It was a much better set up then in cabins where you're forced to store your bags under the bed. The balcony was very nice too. We had great views all cruise long, but especially on our Glacier Bay day. Read Less

Ruby Princess, Lido 311 L311 balcony is obstructed partially. Off of the balcony toward midship is a 4’ wall that protrudes outward blocking any view rearward. The view from this cabin is from bow (0 degrees) to strait out starboard (90 degrees). Even one or two cabins forward would allow for a much wider view. This cabin is also on Lido, there are deck chairs above you, and you can hear them set them up each morning. It’s not bad, but if you’re a light sleeper who sleeps in, choose a cabin with cabins above/below. Also, L311 is adjacent to the exterior doors on Lido deck and I saw people asking about these on Cruise Critic. I had an issue the first night, rough waters in middle of the night was causing the exterior door to bang every few seconds. It annoyed me enough to set out on a 3am mission to find the exterior doors had closed incorrectly, not looking one of the doors. A few quick fixes and the doors were unheard from within the cabin. The corridor from Lido to the elevators was also very seldom used (another asked question). Only noise in that cabin was the deck chairs. I recommend a slightly lower Lido deck number, and even (port side) for views. Read Less
Average Cruise Ship : Cabin R707

Cabin was comfortable but a dated. TV was too small and understanding what will be showing was near impossible. The cabin steward was excellent and provided prompt and courteous service.

We booked this cruise was for my 75th Birthday celebration. We booked at end of Nov and we couldn’t pick a balcony in our category so we were in a guaranteed cabin status. We were getting anxious because on Friday morning before the cruise we still hadn’t been assigned a cabin. I checked again late Friday afternoon and saw that a cabin had finally been assigned. We were expecting to get a poor location since the cabin was available so late. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find our cabin was where we had wanted on the aft Riviera deck except on the port versus the starboard side. The cabin was a standard balcony with excellent views from the aft Riviera level, close to Carib Cafe. Our cabin steward, Cyrus, was excellent and kept the cabin neat and clean without being intrusive. We had second seating and had an aft window table for 4 but just for the two of us since our friends who had booked to accompany us had to cancel due to illness literally at the last minute.The Botticelli dining wait staff, Richard and Edson, were excellent and service was what we've come to expect from Princess. The Princess Theater singers and dancers were very enthusiastic and talented and although we've seen these production shows many times, they still are interesting and exciting to watch. The featured singer, David Austen, was one of best we’ve heard on a cruise and we bought his CD. The comedian, Doug Funk, was a fantastic improvisationalist, and had the audience laughing from the beginning to end of his performance. He was assisted by some very bright and engaging volunteer audience participants. The assistant cruise director, a young man from Australia, was very funny and always had a smile for everyone entertaining everyone with his dialect impersonations. The Ruby, even thought it is not one of the newest Princess ships, still looked great and was well maintained. However, it is due for a refurb, especially the cabin carpets because some passengers are not careful about spills that leave minor stains that can't be removed by shampooing. We saw about a dozen whales and many, many dolphins that rollicked in the bow waves of the ship jumping and doing flips at the cheers and laughter of the passengers. In Puerto Vallarta we were in port with the Grand Princess and were berthed at pier 3 since the usual pier 1 area is under construction. We repeated the Viva Tequila excursion since we enjoyed it so much the last time we did it in March 2017. It has changed with the open air, multi-car "trolley" thru the city tour was replaced with a bus because the city decided it was too disruptive to local traffic. The Tequila Museum is a newer building converted by the Mexican Tequila producers and is in a refurbed large stage theater. We were given "unlimited" margaritas made the traditional Mexican way not the American way and they were much better. The museum staff gave a tour and presentation on the myths and origin of tequila and how it is made which was very informative. In the theater there was an enlightening discussion of how to drink and distinguish between the major varieties of tequila based on its processing and aging. We then had a sample of each of the tequila varieties, Blanca/Silver, Reposado and Anejo to taste. One of the best folkloric shows that we've ever seen was then presented. This was then followed by a short walk to the beach for a complementary lunch at the Mangos beach side restaurant. Highly recommend this excursion when in Puerto Vallarta. At Cabo we were in port with Holland America's Westerdam which left with us and we paralleled our courses all the way to LA being only a little more than mile or so apart for the last 2 days. It was neat to see their lights at night off the port side. In summary, our cruise on the Ruby was great and we truly did come back relaxed and renewed. Read Less
