The three areas that were disappointing were entertainment, menu selection and smoking venue. The comic, diva, trio and pianist at Crooners very good; the dance band, guitar players and Wallace Black ...

Disappointing Cruise

I chose this because it was a ten day cruise which went to some off the beaten track Ports. The food was sub-par and the ships facilities were in need of repair. None of the Hot Tubs on the ship were working ...

Great cruise for first time cruiser

I thought everything on the cruise was great. This was my first cruise, so I have nothing to compare it to. The food at the buffet was acceptable. I only ate at the buffet for breakfast. Nothing really ...

As Celebrity cruisers we wanted to try Princess. I won a Princess cruise from our favorite Las Vegas Casino. We live in the Los Angeles area so we chose a local cruise. We were excited to see what Princess had to ...

Nice Ship, Nice Cruise

We usually sail on Carnival, however, I'm glad we booked the Ruby Princess for our 7-day Mexico cruise. We were platinum and were upgraded to a junior suite. Our room steward was excellent, he parked his cart across ...

Disappointing

We cruise Princess often because of the many opportunities to dance to the music of talented musicians. The Mexico route is usually full of many dance venues in Club Fusion, Explorers, Wheelhouse & Skywalkers. Many ...

Incredibly relaxing and excellent food in all venues.

3rd cruise on Princess and we took the Ruby to Alaska a year ago. Cabin steward Bren Del Prado was outstanding and dinner with our waiter Luis Loyola and Jay Lau was so entertaining. Luis should have his own ...

Terrible Cruise

Let's start from the top. Embarking: The crew outside the ship was a horrible experience. I had a crew member get very hostile with my Uber driver all because he missed a no parking sign that quite frankly I ...

I've seen a fair number of negative comments on Ruby Princess in CC, so was wondering what kind of experience we would have on our 7 day Mexican Riviera cruise. I'm happy to say we had a fantastic vacation and ...

No Butter for you!

A New Year cruise on Mexican Riviera might sound glamorous, but in fact turned out to be a low quality, poor service, repetitive basic food, cheap entertainment experience. This was my fifth cruise with Princess, ...

My wife and I have been on a few cruises and I guess we were just spoiled on the Queen Mary 2. We decided to save money and try a Princess cruise for once. My parents always liked them. The room was OK but the same ...

This cruise opportunity came along at the right time without much forethought and proves that long-time plans aren't always necessary for a great trip. We found it easy to become familiar with our way around the ...
