We have called Princess Cruise Lines many times (each time the wait is over an hour), to get this resolved to no avail. The last email we received says they will look at overcharges "manually and accurately in sailing date order". We have also been told on the phone it would be over 60 days. Meanwhile we have to find the money to pay the credit card company.This has already been going on for over a month. (They have admitted their error.)

Our cabin was very tight, no sofa - it's smaller than others. Everything was great - service, crew,...no issues. It's the food, in any venue on the ship - at least one thing will be wrong - count on it. I won't eat trash, my thing is "take this away, and I don't want anything to replace it".

Arrived at the port San Francisco...took about 40 mins to board ship. Cabin ok as there was 3 of us. Should have sailed at 4pm but delays as passengers still hadn't boarded finally left at 6pm..Cold and rough passage for 4 days..as we got nearer Hawaii it warmed up! On board ship was expensive to say the least! Charge for this charge for that never ending! The ship itself has seen better days..needs a good overhaul. Laundry facility was poor as most machines were out of order. Open air Cinema wasn't really an option! Either too windy or cold! Why couldn't they show films in the theatre? As for entertainment is was very poor..more like a holiday camp than real entertainment! Food was ok to be fair in both restaurants and self service. Awful service at the conceairge desk..always a queue when they were open which was only a couple of hours days! Excursions really expensive! £120 for half day trip!!! I must say there better and more value for money out there! Forget Princess Cruises!

Thank you princess for an amazing time. Crown grill superb especially the 8oz sirloin. Horizon court nice buffet and da Vinci on formal night was great. We start at San Francisco and went to La, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Ensenada. Big shout out to Kristof the cruise director for entertainment, he will do anything to help and he joins in the quizzes and he’s so funny and entertaining, he really made the evenings. Also Margaret who also helps him, pirate queen, and eggy. Crooners is great for a singalong and wheelhouse bar is good too. My husband and I are in late 40’s and was worried cruising would be for just pensioner age. How wrong was I lol. They are really catering for all ages now . Plus formals hubby was worried it’s all ‘ La de da’ but no, it’s lovely and everyone is all so welcoming. I am 100% going again with princess.

Ruby Princess Christmas 2021 sailing Part 1 Embark on our ship in San Francisco at our scheduled window at about 12:15 pm on December 17, 2021. It was the smoothest embarkation ever. We completed all required pre-cruise procedures on time prior to our trip and the result was a simple walking in with a few short stops to verify our documents. Each one of us had a single bottle of wine and at the security screening they requested to go to another line for whatever they wanted to register. Line was long and since we were within the allotted limits on wine, we made the decision to go directly to the ship. Our room was ready and luggage was delivered in about 1.5 hr later. Instead of going for lunch to the buffet, we went into the main dining room and had good lunch with excellent service without a crowd and issue with social distancing. Also noted, that unlike the Celebrity cruise few months earlier when there no mask was required on the cruise, the Ruby Princess had mask requirements for all areas and masks were off only at the tables for food consumption. They required masks wearing even while walking and selecting food in the buffet area. Will continue in Part 2 Good travels
