Short review of Ruby Princess Just returned from a March 11th 7 day Mexican Rivera. We arrived at port around 1 pm. It took awhile to find a porter for our luggage. They all seemed busy and most just walked by us with empty carts. ... Read more

Two weeks in Feb 2017, including Valentine's Day and President's Day holidays. As many probably know, there are parents that turn their angel children loose on board ships, while they drink cocktails elsewhere. This leaves the kids ... Read more

First of all this was our second Valentines Day week cruise, and I have come to the conclusion that it is a bad week to go. The cruise was a good price and the 3rd passenger was free and 4th half fare or something such, so ship was fully ... Read more
