This was our third Princess Cruise, but the first once since they were bought by Carnival. We felt that there was a decline. The food was more like Home Town Buffet. During our other cruises the food was high quality, really wonderful, fresh with lots of variety and great taste. We got to laughing, a little , on how can you make desserts that have no taste or sweetness? The Horizon Cafe was ...

Our expectations were mixed before embarking on our first cruise but after 24 hours we were pretty much converts. At first sight the ship was looked amazing and embarkation was easy. The cabin was about the size we expected but because we opted for a balcony it seemed much bigger and it suited our needs perfectly. We were on the eleventh deck (BAJA)which was an ideal height and pretty much mid ...

My wife and I recently returned from a 12 day Barcelona to Venice cruise on the Ruby Princess from 10th August to 22nd August. This was our first cruise and we absolutely loved it (more of that later!). As this was our first cruise we used this website a great deal to find things out about the ship, ports and a whole lot more. As someone that doesn't usually write posts on forums, I felt ...

Previously cruised with Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and Regent. We were very Happy with the service, staff, restaurants, food quality, ambiance, and cabin on the Ruby. Movies under the stars was nice and unique to Princess. Great mix of passengers of all ages and nationalities, many families, and would say the median age was 45 because of the summer season. Alot of teens aboard and there were ...

Big ship with 3200 on board and 700 kids we were told, many multi generation families and from all parts of the globe though the Americans take the majority. Ship layouts seem similar to us but the Ruby seems ...

Overall impressions of this cruise:1. It was a great itinerary. Only 2 sea days, but the port locations were fabulous. About half of the stops we had never been to before. We can't complain about any of the stops.2. The Ruby Princess is a great ship. We've sailed on several Princess ships, and while we enjoy some of the smaller ships in the line, we never felt really crowded on this cruise. ...

As parents, my DH and I have recognized that time was passing by so quickly when our beautiful 15 year old twin daughters where standing in line for their driver's permits 4 months ago. We were in a complete dilemma as to how to spend the summer. A little more background, we are a avid travelers both born with wanderlust in our genes. In October, my DH and I spent 2 weeks exploring China on our ...

This was our first cruise and we're sold. Princess had the whole process well organized from beginning to end. We booked our own flights and stayed a day or two at each end (Barcelona and Venice). The transfers to/from the ship were easy. We took a combination of ship's tours and independent tours of ports. The ship's tours were very well organized (especially considering that over 2000 ...

My wife and I cruised from Barcelona to Venice on the Ruby Princess in May, 2011 and just loved it. Neither of us had ever been on a cruise before and did not think it would be something we would enjoy mainly because we had heard about all the food that is available 24 hour a day. We also imagined that your ship is sailing all the time and there would be nothing else to do. We were wrong! Another ...

I try to visit Europe once or twice a year and this was my first European cruise. I relied a lot on these boards for advice so I want to pay-it-forward. Dining: We had an 8:30 seating for dinner. We were a group of 35 and depending on what table you sat at, your waiters varied. They all aimed to please but as always, some were better than others but the service was what I would expect in a ...
