Very good cruise but I wish it was more kid friendly especially for kids under 2 years old. No complaints as far as food and cabin space. The movie selection was the best.

Ruby Princess in Alaska was perfect. Size was ideal for Tracy Arm adventure. For cruisers who don't like big crowds, Ruby is a winner. Princess standard dining, entertainment & crew were great. Highly recommend.

Fun cruise of the Mexican Riviera

The Mexican Riviera is beautiful. Have been on this cruise a few times. There is always something different to see.

Not memorable

Dec 9th, 2018

I felt the cruise could have been better because of the poor quality of food offered I felt like we were constantly being offered second-best just so Princess Cruise line could up-sell a better quality of food. The staff was nothing to remember and the activities were very boring. I don't think I will ever book with princess again.

Mexican cruise

Prefer carnival. Alot more fun things to do and a more mixed crowd. Food and staff sub par on this cruise. Activities are for older people. So tired of them trying to upsale me on everything.

Awesome time in Mexico

Nov 25th, 2018

Had a great time. Was our first Princess cruise (Carnival, HAL). This ship had more people than previous cruises for us. BUT we never felt crowded. The ship layout combined with scheduling of events nicely flows the crowds. Embarkation was a breeze. Disembarkation was super smooth. We missed turning in our info and were assigned a later time. Went to GS and they gave us a walk off time for earlier. We headed down to gather for our scheduled time. A white suiter saw us and said if we were ready to head on out. From our room the Uber, 15 min. max. Enjoyed the entertainment. Talented crew. We did the bingo. Was the most crowded event we attended so get there early if you feel the need to gamble. Wait staff was a nice mix. There were people from all over the world doing all kinds of jobs. Wasnt' just one country like HAL. Thought the food was above average for a cruise. Breakfast never changed at the buffet. Standard fare. But the anytime dining in the Davinci was excellent. We always ordered a couple extra dishes and deserts and shared them with our party of 6. Loved doing trivia and hanging by the pool watching the jumbo tron or live band by the other pool. Did the all inclusive in Mazatlan. Blah. Not worth the money. Ziplined in PV. Los Veranos. Did the Vallarta Adventures on a previous trip and thought V.A. was better than Veranos. Although Veranos had some birds/iguana/monkeys that you could hold. Loved Princess.... Going again thru the canal!

Disappointing

Nov 23rd, 2018

We are experienced cruisers. Most looking for a week away from family. Ports are places that we have been before, so no surprises. What was a surprise was the quality of the food. My wife had taken this same cruise on Princess two years ago and the qualify of the food had taken a noticeable decline. A number of people who had traveled on the ship before also commented on the change. Dining room staff was attentive if disorganized. Food quality was about cafeteria level food. Unlike other cruises we had been on, substitutions were not allowed. The pizza was surprisingly bad. I would rate it around the level of Chuck E Cheese for those with kids or just tasteless for those without. The hot dogs and hamburgers at the quick serve were good. The Crown Grill did well on steaks but had difficulty with even their limited number of sides. The coffee bar/sandwich shop (International Cafe) had decent sandwiches, odd salads and hit or miss desserts. The sandwiches are supposed to be panini style, so there are no condiments. You have to travel up 10 floors to get something from the Salty Dog Grill. Disappointing as some of the sandwiches were very good cold but need condiments to bring out their best. Buffets were rotated from one kitchen to another, making it always a minor hunt to find which one was one. Seating was a problem since only one side was ever open at a time. I would recommend the cruise and the ship. Just beware that the level of food quality is disappointing, make the most of restaurants off the ship. Final note: Never tried calling room service the first night of the cruise before and never will again. Waited 45 minutes on hold before giving up. Learn from my mistake :)
