Ship Facts: Ruby Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ruby Princess Deck Plans
Very enjoyable if port intensive cruise

We had a very speedy boarding in Barcelona and set sail for Toulon. We have sailed on Princess before and the ship was to the same high standard of decor. The staff on board this ship are all very happy to be there and you get the impression of a very well organised and efficient ship - our cabin steward Vitor was amazing and nothing was too much trouble, as was our waiter for our fixed dining table Judith and her wine waiter Ayro, The food in the evenings was first class, but the standard of the buffet at lunchtime, we feel, has gone down slightly in variety of foods available, probably due to the very competitive pricing of cruises now compared to when we started cruising. This cruise starts in Spain and ends in Venice and visits Greece and Turkey ports also, with only two days at sea.

I would recommend this cruise is taken by someone who is fairly active as it is quite busy and full on - we had a great time.

The only complaint would be that there were not enough hand sanitisers on board, only one at the entrance to the buffet lunch, although we spotted many people coming into the buffet from the exit rather than the entrance and therefore not sanitising their hands, We feel this is important and mentioned it several times to the head waiter particularly as it was cough and cold season and a lot of passengers were suffering.

That said, Princess are a good cruise line and the shows, entertainment and facilities on board are finest class.
