Ruby Princess Barcelona to Venice Cruise
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
We found the food was just "okay" and not great, not even in the specialty dining rooms. We tried the regular dining room food as well and it was not anything special at all. For us, the food is a big part of our cruising experience and enjoyment. We have raved about other cruise line cuisine but the last 5 or 6 Princess Cruises did not cause us to gain any weight! The Specialty Dining was overpriced in our opinion, although we chose to dine in them over the regular dining room. The ship was elegant and immaculately maintained.
The cabin was roomy and quite comfortable. We found that the ship was warm, including our cabin, regardless of how low we set the thermostat. We were too tired after the long and More demanding excursions to see any entertainment in the evenings.
However, all in all, it was a very enjoyable cruise, less and except a number of the Princess sponsored excursions and the food that did not WOW us. Unless we can stay on for the restful journey to Miami after Venice, we will not choose this itinerary again. We booked a future cruise and will continue to enjoy this cruise line because of the staff, elegance, perks for Platinum cruisers. Less
Cabin review: BAC702 Balcony
We were near the Aft stairway/elevators and it was fine. Actually, that location turned out to be favorable because the dining, Skywalkers Bar, and access to photo center was Aft making it quite convenient. The cabin was spacious, the closet had more than enough room for us. The bed was dreamy comfortable and so were the pillows of down. There was a generous vanity located near the balcony doors with good lighting and large mirror. There was a refrigerator and bar area opposite the vanity with a comfortable chair. The balcony had part shade and part sun. It was great!Read All Balcony (BA) Reviews >>
