This cruise opportunity came along at the right time without much forethought and proves that long-time plans aren't always necessary for a great trip. We found it easy to become familiar with our way around the Ruby and felt at home ... Read more

Received this cruise as a free gift from cousin's bf. He received it as a business promotion, (not affiliated with the cruise line.) I really enjoyed the comedian, and the broadway type musical shows, as well as "The Voice of the ... Read more

Wanted to get a snap shot visit to Mexico ports and thought the cruise way would be a good way which it was. We cruised previously on the Ruby in 2011 in Carribean as our first cruise and enjoyed that so in part why we chose this one. We ... Read more

We wanted a quick winter getaway and a West Coast departure was more convenient. This cruise fit the requirement. We used the Princess transfer from the airport because of the distance to the port since we had used the Princess air program ... Read more
