4 Night West Coast Getaway With Catalina Island (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 03, 2016
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C325
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Average cruise ship with average balcony staterooms.  We are cruising about once a year and this is our 3rd cruise in 3 years.  Food was below average compared to Norwegian and about the same as Carnival.  Upscale steakhouse served a filet mignon that had the texture and flavor of an Applebee's sirloin. Definitely not the quality one would expect.  Ship tended to be crowded especially the buffet dining room where sections would be closed off and no tables available in the open areas.  We likely will not sail on Princess cruise lines again.
