Ruby Princess Cruise Review by big1515: Hit or miss
Overall Member Rating
Hit or miss
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The ship is relatively new,clean and impressive. The passengers seemed to be mainly from Canada and the Midwest USA ..The ships officers are predominantly Italian which should state excellent food ,but Italian night on the ship was a little to be desired ...The breakfast was the high lite of the trip .It was plentiful,constant and had a large variety which met all our needs .,Lunch was good and changed to some extent daily ,but the sit down dinner was poor .The beef was good but not great .The seafood was very weak and lobster was a big disappointment .The wait staff in the buffet and dinning room was adequate .In the dinning room they always pushed the drinks.
We liked the Crown Grill steakhouse worth the extra $25 a head.
I Normally drink Mount Gay Rum ,but they did not have it on board ..Their loss !
told good stories ,but the jokes were few and far between
The East coast connection band did a variety More of 50-60s music ,but needed a greater selection of songs ( same over and over ) .The last day a sax ( from where I do not know )joined them and the were 100% more dynamic
Egar @ the Explore bar was ,informative ,attentive and a nice guy.
Had a problem with a waiter a the coffee bar .The name escapes me ,but never got the order right and had an attitude
Toni the cabin boy 'the Best' Less

Cabin review: BEc609 Balcony
Center ship is the place to be ,with a balcony .Our cabin person(toni) was the best .Always said ''Hi ,good-morning .Have a nice dinner ,do you need anything ! "" .If you are a big person the showers will be a problem . Would like ship's beach towels that were embodied like other ships .The small beach carry bag given by the ship was usefulRead All Balcony (BE) Reviews >>
