Ship Facts: Ruby Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ruby Princess Deck Plans
Enjoyable 4-night cruise - so relaxing, it felt like a full week!

This is our 2nd cruise on Princess, and it did not disappoint. After parking our vehicle in Park and Go (near the dock (very convenient due to lots of road construction in Fort Lauderdale) and reasonably priced, we arrived at the ship close to 1pm, and literally walked on (I had completed all required paperwork in advance). Since Princess always has their rooms ready early, we brought our carry-on bags to Aloha - 327 (room ok, but did not realize there were overhead bunks) and then headed to DaVinci for a quick lunch, which was very good (beef so tender you could cut it with your fork). After checking out some areas of the ship, it was time for muster drill, which took about 1/2 hours time. Anytime dining works for us; Michelangelo at 6:30 pm was not crowded. We had a table of 12 and were served promptly. All the meals in the dining rooms were very good - no complaints whatsoever. Production show "Once Upon a Dream" was creative and very enjoyable.

Day 2: Breakfast in Horizon Court (buffet) - good selection of fruit, eggs, omlets, meats, even fruit smoothies, etc. Water and coffee served at your table. 11:30 am - Princess Cays (Princess private island) - tendered to the island where we found a beach chair and headed into the beautiful Caribbean water which was cool and refreshing. Tough getting out of water due to sinking in the sand, but otherwise beautiful. Did not partake of the barbecue and headed back to the ship about 2pm for some pizza on Deck 15-midship, which is pretty good; Movies under the Stars going all day and well into the night. Dinner, comedian Rollin Jay Moore (very good),casino, karaoke.

Day 3: Breakfast Horizon Court. Departed ship at 11:30 am, walking-off in Grand Turk, where a golf cart drove us the length of the pier to beach and shopping. Lots of beach chairs available (some in the some, some in the shade of palm trees). Water chilly, but refreshing once you got in. Again, tough getting out due to undertow. Shops are pricey, but nice to visit. Margaretville was hopping - pool and bars were full with everyone having a great time. Dinner (Horizon Court), magician Landon Swank (from America's Got Talent), Latin Fiesta Deck Party.

Day 4: At Sea day. Lots to do, or not - your choice. Wheelhouse Bar offers a British lunch - fish and chips, meat pie, etc.; always good. Hunger Games on big screen, Dinner: DaVinci - Surf and Turf (wonderful). Colors of the World Production show, Late Night Comedy (Rollin Jay Moore) in Club Fusion - Adults only - laughed til I cried! Icon (band) opened for Rollin Jay Moore and were very entertaining.

Staff was great throughout.

Disembarkation a bit of a nuisance - should always walk-off if possible.
