Ruby Princess was nice. All but one staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good for the most part. Wish they (and all cruise ships) made "American taste" pastries. Most are more "European" and not sweet enough or enough flavor. I understand they are cooking for more "seasoned - aged) passengers, but need more flavor in most meals. Example: if it says lime, you should taste more then a tiny hint of lime. But that said, we really can't complain too much. LOVED the new Princess beds. They were pretty cool during the ruff seas the last few days. Allowed you to catch some negative G's on the roll of the waves!! LOL! We enjoyed that! Slept well on the new beds. The ship was clean, in good repair, more so than another cruise ship I was on. Heard some say they had plumbing issues, but we didn't. Felt they closed and covered the pools too early, would have loved to swim at night. Had so much fun on our excursions. Swimming with the whale sharks was awesome! Saw lots of whales, dolphins, a few stingrays, seals, and other fun animals. Shows were mostly good. Enjoyed the Production Shows and comics, theater was usually full, go at least a half hour early if you want the early show. Cabin Steward was very helpful and friendly. Princess transfers went very well, would buy again. LOVED Loreto! Will go back there. More old Mexico, friendly people, no one hawking to sell you things. Very pleasant. CaboSails was awesome for whale watching and sailing, Would use them again. SunRiders in La Paz was also great. Passengers were pretty sedate, older, not much happening after 10 PM.
