The Ruby Princess has recently been renovated and is very nice. Rich woodtones throughout and very tastefully done.I did find it a little harder to navigate than other ships I've been on St John, Sydney and Charlottetown,this could have been a 7 day cruise and eliminated those ports not much to see there.If it is on your itinerary and you need a break from touring as you are at ports everyday you may want to forgo one of these or more. Other ports were very enjoyable. Weather was exceptional the end of Sept..all that was needed were fall jackets, vests, scarves.Only a day or two where warmer clothing was needed... one day we were actually at the pool in our suits! This is definitely a tour for seniors ..we were some of the younger ones and are in our 50's.Only saw two kids on the trip.
