Ship Facts: Ruby Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ruby Princess Deck Plans
Best Cruise Yet aboard Ruby Princess!
We have sailed 5 times with Princess and this was the best cruise we have had in all categories. Boarding the ship was a breeze in Fort Lauderdale. No problems at all getting checked in and to our cabin in 30 minutes. The ship was almost completely sold out with over 3,000 people on board. We were amazed that we didn't find ourselves waiting in long lines to board at any of the ports either.

We had a mini suite on the Dolphin deck (D326) that had plenty of room

and a great view, large bathroom with full size tub and shower. This

cabin really allowed us to spread out and be comfortable. We enjoyed

breakfast in our cabin each morning. Balcony was great, plenty of room.

Some folks didn't like the fact that some upper levels of the ship

could look into your balcony. This didn't bother us at all. People were

very friendly.

Food was great! We had anytime dining and found that to be very enjoyable meeting new people almost each night. We tried to eat dinner each night between 5:45 and 6:15. No problems getting seated they really took care of everyone. Service was very good. We paid the extra $20 per person and ate at Sabatini's on our first sea day. This was well worth the $$ as the food was fantastic! This was an awesome 16 course meal like I have never had before. The food and service here was unbelievable. Well worth the extra $20.. I would recommend this to all.

I don't think we missed any of the shows on board. The dancers were great and well put together. Orchestra was fantastic as well. Here we did have to arrive 20 minutes early considering most shows were full.
