Princess Under Staffed and Unprepared to Manage a Cruise

Review for Ruby Princess to Pacific Coastal

Princess was totally not ready for this cruise. To begin, there were customers standing outside for 3-1/2 hours in order to get to the check-in area. Once on the ship, there was not enough staff or trained staff to handle the 2,552 passengers. Waiting in line was a daily experience in many areas. Poor execution of excursions - not prepared, not researched and definitely overpriced. ...

Pros: 1. Ship is laid out nice 2. We had a mini suite. The bed was very comfortable and so was our suite. We would have preferred a "private" balcony. Ours did not have a ceiling. 3. Our stateroom attendant did a great job. 4. All the staff was very friendly. 5. Disembarkation went well. 6. Liked being able to order drinks from anywhere (albeit they took some time to get to ...

Sad to say our recent 10 day cruise on the RMS Ruby Princess was not up to par and will be our first and last experience with Princess. We were with a large group of seasoned Princess cuisers and they were extremely disappointed by this experience. We did not know what to expect, but, based upon feed earlier feedback from them we expected Princess to be on par with lines such as Holland and ...

Have cruised 4 times with Princess and would rate the first three as 5 star. This cruise was the first cruise with a full ship after resuming sailing. Unfortunately it was staffed for a half capacity cruise. Embarking took many people 2-3 hours. The ship left 1hr 15minutes late because they could not get the people on board. Many people had dining and excursions they had ordered in advance ...

The lack of any attention to Covid protocols

We have Platinum Elite status and have had many very happy experiences with Princess. We have cruised on the Ruby's 2 sister ships and loved both. This cruise started off very bad. We had priority boarding which took an hour with crowded conditions. Almost no one had masks. Some took 3 1/2 hours to get on board later in the day. The ship had 2800 passengers. Everywhere was crowded and very ...

My previous Princess cruise was so great, I booked my next right away. I honestly didn’t care where. Like the last, it was amazing. The problems didn’t arise until the last day. I used a low-limit credit card for my onboard expenses (zero foreign transaction fees). An unanticipated number of unsettled authorizations put me “over limit.” I received a call in the morning of disembarkation and ...

Come back with Covid

Princess has relaxed their Covid protocols in the past 2 months, with predictable results. We cruised on the Ruby to Hawaii in February. In addition to requiring a negative test taken within 48 hours of boarding, they also did a rapid test on ALL passengers at the pier before boarding. Passengers were again tested a few days into the cruise. On the ship, social distancing was maintained with ...

Covid on Ruby Princess
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

May 4, 2022 Walter Princess Cruise Survey: The cruise was overbooked with too many passengers and not enough crew. There was utter chaos when people had to stand in long lines to get food for lunch and were bunched up close together. There was no social distancing in the long lines. There is too much Covid on these ships among the staff (even entertainers and engineering crew). How is it ...

This cruise was chosen because it departed from my home city; I am a disabled senior and traveling is difficult. I have stage 3 cancer treated with radiation which makes standing very difficult/painful, and I am vegan. Additionally I have Coronary Artery Disease. Princess assured me that they would be able to accommodate the needs of my disability as well as my dietary needs, and Princess ...

Ruby Princess Food Fiasco

We have been on Ruby Princess 5 times since the restart of Cruising. The food quality in particular in the Buffet and Main Dining Room have been steadily declining. We were on Discovery Princess and were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. Ruby Princess does not have Hand washing stations installed in the Buffet. Even the Grand Princess have hand washing stations in the buffet. The Crew ...
