Can't Wait to Go Again For the Third Time!

The safety drill at the beginning of the cruise was supppper easy. All we had to do was go to our designated muster drill area, scan our key card, and sit down. We no longer have to bring our life jackets.  ...

Cheap and somewhat cheery

This was not our first cruise with Princess, nor the first time we have sailed onboard the Ruby Princess, in fact, we are "Platinum" status with Princess. Yet it never seems to surprise us how different each ship ...

This is the 4th of 4, back-to-back cruises we are “enjoying”. It is very apparent that once they have your money, they’re done! What can a guest do? Jump ship? A definite improvement over being held captive. ...

My brother & his wife are avid cruisers & invited us along. I never thought I would enjoy a cruise so the first time he asked us to join them for a 2018 cruise I turned him down. My sister & Mom went on that cruise ...

First Cruise on Princess

We've been wanting to try Princess after having done three Celebrity and two RCI cruises. Pros: Fastest embarkation and debarkation we have ever experienced, and the stateroom was ready upon boarding at 12:30. ...

Awful

The food was horrible and bland. If you wanted a good steak dinner it’s going to cost you! They try to sell you everything. Not a cruise I would ever go on again! We had one meal that we paid for at the steak ...

I bought a drink package for just over $500. On our seven day cruise, I had no more than 8 drinks (I started counting). The reason for not having more is because each drink took an average of a half hour to get to ...
