Left Ft Lauderdale on the Ruby on January 10th. Embarkation a breeze. Went right up to the Sanctuary to reserve our spot for the week. Some of our luggage came quickly but one bag did not come till about 6:30pm and had a large sticker on it "Security inspected". Same thing happened to our friend's luggage. Cruise was a pleasure. Well run, clean ship, good meals, nice cabin (aft balcony). Never a long wait for our anytime dining. Sailed on the Royal last year and can say I really enjoyed this one better. Never saw anyone in the dining room in the evening in shorts and tee shirts (unlike the Royal). Saw the captain a few times walking around the ship and he was always friendly. Balcony was bigger than the Royal. Other guests seemed more seasoned. Just a nice group of a few thousand people with only a few exceptions! This is our 6th Princess cruise and have booked for next year. Thankfully we don't take the cruises for the ports any more. Nothing exciting about any of them...

Good one
