Passengers are required to be fully vaccinated and show proof before boarding, but there is nothing on the Princess website that states the crew will be fully vaccinated. In fact, someone asked the question in the FAQ's and the Princess response was the crew will be vaccinated according to CDC guidelines. Well, review the guidelines and you will learn that the crew is not required to all be vaccinated. Protect your passengers, require the crew to be 100% vaccinated, then state that on your website!

Not enough seats and tables to allow guests to dine. Staff stood watching us struggle for a place at every meal. Restaurants always fully pre-booked. IF YOU ARE DISABLED, FORGET IT BECAUSE THE STAFF WILL NOT HELP YOU. Cleaning staff were very efficient. The ship wants to sell you things no-one is interested in. The trips are very short e.g day trip to Bondi lasted 1 hour 30 minutes. A total rip-off and put me off cruising for life. NEVER AGAIN!

We flew to Seattle and had 3 wonderful days exploring then joined Ruby Princess for a 7 nights cruise Seattle to Vancouver via Alaska inside passage. We stayed on in the same cabin and enjoyed 31 nights back to Sydney. This was our 23rd Princess Cruise and we just love them. The staff are who make your journey and if you take the time to get to know them they are very interesting to talk to as they have travelled the world. Whilst the food becomes a little repetitive there is always something somewhere on the ship for you to enjoy. It may be the dining room, buffet, pizza, burgers and fries. It was our first time on Ruby Princess and she is large and well fitted. All the Princess ships are similar in decor. The entertainment was great until Hawaii and then it went down hill. We can't wait for our next cruise. If you are new to cruising take a short one to see if it for you. If you love to cruise then I totally recommend Princess. But, be prepared to join a queue now and then, be patient and courteous and remember you are not the only one on holiday and you will have a great time.

This was a cruise over New Years and had a nice festive air to it. The crew were really fantastic and the food was top notch. We missed a couple of ports due to weather but we were kept informed and people were happy with the decisions made.

Last year on Sea Princess we unfortunately had our cruise curtailed because of a cyclone. Princess cruises were absolutely great in giving on board credit which we were able to use against this cruise. We knew because of age and health and the long flights that we had to arrange it fairly soon. I can't say Ruby Princess would ever be my favourite ship because I prefer the size of Sea Princess, however, we had a great cruise and experience and were able to visit every port on the itinerary. All the meals were acceptable however on a number of evenings the wine we requested wasn't available. A couple of requests about problems in the cabin never were resolved before we left.
