Ship Facts: Ruby Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ruby Princess Deck Plans
Ruby Princess: Incredible!
We did the following excursions...

Peat Taylor in Jamaica. Dunns River Falls/Tubing/Tour... Peat will take care of you. Sting Rays with Moby Dick...This team was first class and I suggest them without hesitation. Tucan Sailboat in Cozumel. Excellent time. 6 hours...Cab waiting pre/post trip. The crew, drinks, and freshly prepared food was excellent.

Skywalkers was a lot of fun. Great music. This club jammed til 3am everynight. Club for every taste from Piano to classical to rock to soul singers. Great planning by Princess.

This cruise was not "stuffy" by any means. Great demographic mix. Primarily European.

Exhausted myself everynight at skywalkers trying to keep this 30-something body at pace with the 20-somethings.

Crown Grill: Fillet and Brazilian lobster tail were the best that I have tried; including Morton's etc.

Sabatini's: 14 course meal....enough said. Fantastic. Veal Chop was excellent. Food was excellent. Ship was excellent.

Ruby was all class. Princess...5 stars.

Champagne Pour was great. Chocolate covered strawberries excellent at the International Cafe are a must.

Horizon and Club Caribe Buffets were very good and fresh, even served fried eggs...which I like for a change of pace. Great selection and rotation as well.

Finally, the design is like staying in a 5 star hotel. Beautifully crafted vessel with so many small spaces that the it is very private. The extensive hardwoods and paintings add class.

Finally, initially I was considering the Carnival Splendor vs the Ruby Princess. While sipping Mango Tango at the embarkation party on the 15th deck, I peered over the rail to see approximated 1000 Carnival passengers standing in the sun and heat waiting to board. One passenger even collapsed from the heat and wait. This affirmed my choice of the Ruby Princess and the next seven days did not disappoint.
