Ship Facts: Ruby Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ruby Princess Deck Plans
Disappointed and dismayed

We booked a Vista Suite at the Aft of the ship. This Suite is suitable for 2 people but I can't imagine squeezing a family into this space. The balcony was wonderful and except for the camera pointed directly into our cabin- It was private. Our stewart told us it was a fire alarm..Yeah right. We booked this suite expecting the Suite amenities. For paying twice as much as we would have for the mini-suite- the amenities were more than lacking.No priority check in for Suite passagers and even Carnival does that. No wi-fi in your cabin for free as that policy changed in June of 2013. I purchased seperately the Ultimate Soda package so that we could have our sodas and non-alcoholic beverages in our package. It does not include any soda in a can. That was just put into place when we sailed via a memo from the pursers office to the bartenders. I only drink Sprite Zero and they only serve that in a can. When ever you approach the service desk on the ship the apologize but do little to satisfy the issues.

Next the food. If you have to pay extra for it do not bother. The specialty dining was horable....

There is an Adults only pool. It is small and almost impossible to find a lounge chair unless you have stacked your claim early in the day. People do bring their children and the staff does nothing..

The staff, with the exception of our room stewart and one bartender are nastey and short with the passagers. We made a point to not do the automatic tipping and just tipped as we saw fit- Our room Stewart , the staff that delivered room service and the one wonderful bartender we continued to visit on the ship.

We have been told by other passangers that have sailed with Princess that this is not normal behavor for the staff and that they noticed everything we had seen. As for us- I am headed back to RCI.
