Hometown Cruise Ship Ruby Princess Debuts at Port of San Francisco

San Francisco’s hometown cruise ship, Ruby Princess, became Princess Cruises’ sixth MedallionClass ship back in service on 1 November 2021, setting sail from the Port of San Francisco.

The ship welcomed the first guests back onboard with a special ceremony before sailing underneath the iconic Golden Gate Bridge on a seven-day California Coast cruise, returning on 7 November.

The cruise ship will be sailing out of the Port of San Francisco to various sought-after destinations including Mexico, Hawaii, the California Coast, Alaska and the Panama Canal on five- to 15-day cruises available for booking through 2023.

“Princess is proud to have our sixth MedallionClass ship back to provide sought-after cruise holidays,” said John Padgett, Princess Cruises president.

“It’s inspiring to see guests enjoying real holidays again, and to watch our teammates deliver such meaningful and memorable Princess holidays.”

Ruby Princess offers nearly 900 balconies, an array of entertainment options including Movies Under the Stars and original musical productions, dining options from Crown Grill to Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria and new top-deck dining venues including Slice Pizzeria and Coffee & Cones.

Guests can also relax with rejuvenating spa treatments, the tranquility of The Sanctuary, a top-deck retreat reserved just for adults and a state-of-the-art fitness centre.

Earlier this month another Princess cruise ship, Majestic Princess, arrived in San Francisco for an overnight port call, marking the first cruise to bring guests to San Francisco since the industry pause.

Long-time partners from the Port of San Francisco welcomed the cruise line back, recognising the financial impact to local businesses. Now, with Ruby Princess’ arrival as the city’s hometown cruise ship, small and family-owned waterfront establishments will continue to benefit.
