First time cruiser on Ruby Princess
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Getting off and off the ship was very easy - no problem there. I booked an inside room midship Baja deck--- was a little leary but found it was fine. I was very impressed at how quiet the room was --- very seldom did I hear someone in the hallway. The room was big More enough and we were not in it very much so I am glad we saved some money with the inside room. We enjoyed going to the top deck when we were going in and out of port to enjoy the view.
I thought the lunch/diner food was good -- not exceptional. However, I did think that the pizza was great!!! AND....the little desserts in the piazza were wonderful....you had a variety of small desserts to choose from ...so you could have a bite of everything...also enjoyed having lattes at the international cafe.
Entertainment -- We enjoyed the shows and was impressed with all of the activities.
I thought that the service was outstanding. I had to get used to being waited on ---- one of the cruisers told me to just sit back and relax and enjoy .... so I did that. I am retired but realized after I got home that I really did feel relaxed....
My husband and I love the beach - we visited Princess Cay, St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Grand Turk. Our favorite was Grand Turk - the water was so blue and clear and I enjoyed hunting for sea glass. We also enjoyed St. Maarten - Dutch side because we enjoyed the beach and the shopping prices were less expensive than St. Thomas. Princess Cays was nice -- it was relaxing. Not to impressed with St. Thomas - we went to Megans Bay -- was OK -- maybe we need to try something else.
I will cruise again but will only look for 2 sea days and will try another line just to see what they are all about. Less
