Ship Facts: Ruby Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ruby Princess Deck Plans
Ruby Princess - wonderful first time cruise
My husband and I were the only novice cruisers out of our party of 10 aboard the Ruby Princess in March 2010 cruising the Eastern Caribbean (everyone else in our party had cruised at least four times previously on various five-star lines). Each of the 10 of us loved the entire experience. From beginning to end, the whole cruise went smoothly

We didn't take any excursions offered by the ship and always made our own arrangement at each port, as recommended by our experienced co-travelers. This worked out well for us.

The staff on the Ruby were all so friendly and efficient, especially our waitress for dinners - can't remember her name, but she gave the best service we have ever had - ever - in fact better than any 6-star restaurant we've gone to. She gave extra special personal attention and got to know our food preferences on an individual basis after only the second night, and was able to anticipate our needs/wants thereafter. The captain's voice was wonderful to hear each morning announcing the weather conditions and port description, and meeting him in person was a real pleasure since he is so very charming and friendly, and you can tell he is very proud of his beautiful ship.

The ship itself is clean, organized, and never felt crowded. The food was wonderful - five-star for sure. The High-Tea was a highlight most afternoons (we got addicted to the fresh scones and creme fraiche). Even the pizzeria by the pool had the best pizza I'd tasted in years.

I am 49 and my husband is 61. The reason we'd waited so long in the past to cruise was fear on my husband's part of being sea sick, but our first experience was so gentle that we wish we could have stayed on board for many more weeks or months!!!! It was so hard to leave. We would definitely cruise on the Ruby, and with Princess again.
