4 Night West Coast Getaway With Santa Barbara (Los Angeles Roundtrip) Sail Date: September 21, 2015 Ship: Ruby Princess Cabin Type: Balcony Cabin Number:B250 Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 2 years ago
Our cruise experience was everything we anticipated and much more! Our accommodations were amazing and the dining was beyond compare! The entire staff was wonderful and truly aimed to please the guests. The housekeeping staff deserves recognition along with the hosts and waiters at the finer dining restaurants. Everyone was so pleasant, happy and helpful!
Food and Dining
Great food and dining experience was at a minimum comparable to any fine dining onshore. Our waiter (Tara) at the Crown was the greatest! Please note steaks were cold at the Crown.

Onboard activities were entertaining and fun! However we really wanted to experience the spa activities but they were extremely overpriced. We utilized on shore massage and spa treatments.

We did not view much of the entertainment offered as we were enjoying our freedom to roam the ship, however the entertainment we did view was fantastic!

We had a balcony room and it was amazing! Suggestion: When cruising guests need to be connected to family members at home in case of emergency and a charge for internet service should not occur. Also the posting of photos on media such as Fasebook, etc. of great times onboard would be fantastic advertisement for Princess.
All dining rooms have exceptional food. However to get the wonderful ambiance of exquisite dining the Crown and Sabatini's is well worth the additional cover charge. I would suggest that one dining experience at any of the premier dining rooms be given free of the cover charge with the cruise.
