Ruby Princess, San Francisco’s hometown cruise ship, became Princess Cruises’ 6th MedallionClass liner back in service on Sunday, October 31, setting sail from homeport San Francisco (California USA).
The ship welcomed the first passengers back onboard with a special ceremony prior to sailing underneath the Golden Gate Bridge on a 7-day California Coast journey, returning on November 7. Ports of call include Santa Catalina Island/Avalon, California (Nov 2), Los Angeles/Long Beach, California (Nov 3), San Diego, California (Nov 4), and Ensenada, Baja California Mexico (Nov 5).
Ruby Princess will be sailing from the Port of San Francisco to sought-after destinations including Hawaii, Mexico, Alaska, the California Coast, and the Panama Canal on 5- to 15-day cruises available to book through 2023.
Ruby Princess offers ~900 balconies to view the world, as well as an array of entertainment options like Movies Under the Stars and unique musical productions, tempting dining options from Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria to Crown Grill, and new top-deck dining venues such as Coffee & Cones and Slice Pizzeria. Passengers can also relax with rejuvenating spa treatments, and the tranquility of The Sanctuary, Princess' top-deck retreat reserved for adults and a state-of-the-art fitness.
In October, another Princess ship, Majestic Princess, arrived at Port San Francisco for an overnight, marking the first voyage to bring passengers to San Francisco since the industry's pause (March 2020). Long-time partners from the Port welcomed the cruise company back, recognizing the financial impact to the local business.
