Ruby Princess

February 2017 - Ruby Princess to Mexico

could be better

Overall the ship was good, and the staff was generally excellent.  This ship has no cover over either swimming pool which limits use of these areas in cool or wet weather, a definite 'minus' for me.  The food portions in the dining room was generally too small for the men at the table.   The ceaseless 'sales' going on was quite 'pushy' by the staff, hard to relax with someone endlessly extolling the virtues of this that and the other product.

  The 'SHARE' specialty restaurant was beginning to end, simply outstanding, I'd recomment it to everyone. Could be made clearer that this is a semi pre-fix menu comprising six (6) courses...of really interesting food. loved it...

Emerald Princess

September 2015 - Emerald Princess to Europe - Mediterranean

Really Large Ship

Our 7th Princess cruise, but this time on a 3100 passenger behemoth. I found getting on and off too much akin to a 'cattle call'.  The ship and crew were wonderfully well organized and orderly, the Captain informative and very considerate of his passengers and Naval common sense safety, I found him to behave quite like a US Naval officer does.

The excursions were too crowded and though they were needed,  not all provided electronic hearing devices to the group making the guides explanations even difficult to follow than the normal accented English.

Food was good though not exceptional.  Casino hostess very helpful.  Room steward was exceptional. 

I find I prefer the smaller vessels in the Princess fleet.
