The best Captain I remember was Captain Tony he was on The Ruby Princess in 2010. He would walk around the ship all the time and talk to all the passengers. I will never forget him he was a regular guy and a
Great Captain for Princess Cruises. He is retired now.

Captain Jon Paul Bryant, better know on his bridge announcements as "JB from the bridge", captained my September 25- October 18, 2017 cruise from Dover to Venice on the Pacific Princess.
He was highly visible, pleasantly sociable with a good sense of humor, and was an excellent communicator re: anything that affected the itinerary.
I'd love to sail with him again anytime.

We just returned from a b2b on Regal Princess with Captain Tim Stringer. For us, good captains can make such a difference. We so enjoyed his being our captain--personable, visible around ship talking with guests, kept us in touch with what was going on both at noon and when we were leaving ports as well as a few other messages. His service for Veteran's Day was touching, warm and so meaningful to all the people there. Would love to travel with him anytime. Thanks, Captain Stringer.
