November 2015 - 7 Night California Coastal (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Cruise on Ruby Princess
Princess did an outstanding job of handling embarkation and disembarkation, not as good a job of handling the 3000 passengers on board. Ship felt over crowded. For example, twice, we were not able to be seated in the 8:00 p.m. evening show in the Princess Theater, even when getting there 10 minutes or more before curtain time. A third time we had to be separated to get seats. One time we were there 30 minutes early, got decent seats and then got to watch some other passengers falling asleep around us. A lot of the staff had poor English language skills and could not answer simple questions. On the plus side, our assigned dinning room waiters were very good as was our stateroom attendant. The food was very good, with some servings being excellent.
