Transatlantic Ruby Reviewhttp://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?p=19626312#post19626312
We had an incredible time on this 28 day Transatlantic Crossing, we are both in our early to late 50's and very active types who like to research ports and history of locations we visit. The Ruby Princess was really nice, this was my first time on a ship this size, and I loved it. Everything was clean, and the food was really great. Embarkation was easy, we were in our rooms within 30 minutes of arriving at the port, which we did at noon. We stayed at the Resiassance Hotel on 17th street but hated it and checked out the first day. We checked into the Hilton and had a fantastic room with a perfect view of the Ruby Princess for Sail in viewing. I did catch the sail into Ft. Lauderdale, it was great.
Our Stateroom was B748, and aft stateroom that we really enjoyed. The room was small but functional and the shower seemed larger than the same room category on the Island and Coral Princess ships. The balcony was large, with 6 chairs and 2 tables, and it had a slight wrap around to the port side since it is a corner room. Fully covered, this provided extra space for living and we were able to use it regardless of the weather.
