Great time on the Ruby Princess! By: CruiserinCarlsbad
Our balcony cabin had plenty of storage space for our clothes, a safe, a few shelves and a desk area. It was a four-night cruise, so we didn't pack more than one suitcase each, and there were hangers and space to spare in the closet area. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, far beyond our expectations. While the balcony wasn't very big, it was large enough for two chairs and a side table, which was all we needed.

Loved the balcony on the Lido deck. So convenient to the buffet and hot tubs. The room was quiet and very clean. The beds were so comfy. Plenty of storage space. Wish the bathroom were bigger but other than that no complaints. Our cabin steward did a great job but rarely saw her so we left notes.

Beds were especially comfy; we moved the beds to face the balcony to wake up for an ocean view; toilets had to be plumbed twice

The bed appeared brand new and was heavenly! The mattress was supportive and oh so comfortable! Coming from someone with arthritis and fibromyalgia that's saying a lot! Pillows seemed too big and poofy at first but they were perfect. Room was always clean.

Cabin L242

Cabin L242 is a port side Lido deck balcony cabin. We found it comfortable and quiet (even with the spa right above). There was good storage in the cabin and closet area, as well as the small but very functional bathroom. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend L242! It's a super value Bf category cabin with no downside.

Cabin L235

Our balcony cabin was quite nice, the closet space was the best I've seen on any cruise ship, excellent design there. Too bad the shower wasn't a bit bigger, that was the tiniest by far, and I'm not a big person! I banged my head into the shower walls a few times while trying to shave my legs or wash my hair. No bueno, but not a huge deal for a week. What was a bigger deal for me what that when we had rough seas (3 nights), something in the ceiling would make clicking noises, which kept me awake. My cruise-mates did not have this noise issue, so I did bring it up to Customer Service at the end of the cruise, not for me so much as the people cruising in our cabin right now, but customer service dismissed it, saying it was common in all cabins, and offered me ear plugs instead.

We were very comfortable in this cabin. Due to booking late, we were forward and it was rough and bumpy when we were at sea. Normally we book mid-ship.

Cabin L214
Jun 2016
When we did our first cruise to Hawaii in 2013, we booked in Stateroom Lido 214. We enjoy some movement of the ship so we prefer a higher deck forward. I love to spend my afternoons at sea sitting on the balcony, watching world pass by while keeping an eye out for sea life. Oh... And you are on the same deck as Horizon Court, Cafe Caribe, Pizza and Ice Cream.

Cabin R242

The cabin was comfortable and well decorated. The balcony was a very nice feature that we've never purchased before. We used it more than I expected and really enjoyed it. If there is ever a cruise where a balcony is worth the money, it would be Alaska. The room was small and my wife and I bumped in to each other a lot, but that is to be expected on a ship. The bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen, but it served our needs and I have no complaints. Our cabin steward did an outstanding job and we really enjoyed thed cruise

Pleasant Surprise By: Cruisers Ink
We had cabin R215 on deck 14, forward veranda. It was a good size, perfect location, clean and tons of hanging space and I mean a ton. Steward was perfunctory, room was always clean and not as quick to have ready in the morning was we would like, but not an inconvenience in any way. Tip: get the foam mattress cover, it makes the bed way more comfortable.

Cabin B304
Mar 2015
I had a handicapped unit due to knee problems, and the room was spacious and in a perfect location B304 Next to the forward elevators, I didn't notice any noise only on a few port daysBalcony was great, large with lots of cover, although the sun was pretty hot in the mornings.Only one outlet so bring a multiple outlet extention cord and a plug in alarm clock. Bed was great, I ordered a crate top and a top sheet. Beware the outlet in the bathroom is only for a man's razor, nothing else fits. Walk in shower was perfect lots of bars to hold on. Toilet was a little lower than handicapped height... but they do have toilet raisers upon request.

Cabin B739
Jan 2013
As mentioned in my longer review, the aft part of the ship shakes violently when the screws are in reverse. I am a Navy veteran with several years spent aboard aircraft carriers, so please use that as a guide to my tolerance for such things. This really is a huge design flaw with this ship. This would not be such an inconvenience, however, were it not for several ridiculously early port calls. Being woken up at 6am in such a manner is no joy and did bring me back to my at sea days aboard Navy ships. Beyond that, however, the cabin was average in size and amenities and a decent location with regards to other ship's services.

Ruby less than glorious By: sasysutler
cabin B254... will sleep 3 if you like sleeping from a bed from the ceiling. NOT handicapped accessible, very small for a balcony cabin.
