Sweet & Sour
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
After spending several stressful hours during the day...we REALLY looked forward to a good nights' sleep in order to "recoup"!! NOT SO !!!!! Please be WARNED !!!! DO NOT BOOK A 629 on the Ruby !!!! It is an inside with a galley directly overhead! The first night I thought we were having a bad thunderstorm ! The 2nd night I thought...wow that's weird.. ANOTHER thunderstorm ?? The 3rd day I went upstairs to the Riviera deck to see what on earth was making all that racket ! Discovered there was a galley right over our heads that worked ALL NIGHT ! For 14 nights we endured this racket...why they put cabins underneath galleys is beyond imagination. What happened to rubber matting on the floors on which to roll heavy racks and equipment? What happened to adequate insulation between floors ? What happened to the front desk being sensitive to our problem and offering to move us? Don't have the answers !!!! We came home disappointed in Princess for their lack of consideration and loyalty to their Elite passengers....I personally think loyalty goes both ways! We came home exhausted from lack of sleep.....but guess what? We just booked another Princess cruise for next Feb. to Hawaii !!! WE checked REAL good to make SURE our cabin didn't have any galleys anywhere near us! HA! Bottom line is.....we LOVE to cruise....most all have been wonderful experiences...this little bump in the road has made us more aware when we book to see what those blank spaces on the deck plans are ! Word to the wise! Less
