A Grand time aboard the Ruby Princess

This cruise was just at the right time, went to a few ports that we have not visited yet and was priced right. This was our first cruise on Princess and we were anxious to see how it compared. First impression was ...

Great cruise to Cabo

The music entertainment in the Crooner's Lounge was particularly great [Funch is phenomenal]. We enjoyed the casino, the art auction, and the generally relaxed pace on board. An unexpected plus was unplugging from ...

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 ...
