I traveled with Ruby Princess on their Caribbean Christmas Cruise and thought it was fab! Considering it was my first time ever on a cruise ship I was very impressed. The food was excellent, staff very helpful and courteous. I loved waking up in a new port every day. Some of the sights were out of this world and even the sea days were bliss just sun baking or listing to the live band. I enjoyed the theater performances but feel that some of the performances could have been a bit more updated, saying that the Ruby Princess Dancers were fantastic and put on a great show! Just because you are of a certain age doesn't mean you have to be stuck in that era, I know plenty of older people who enjoy modern music/musicals! I did think it was geared up for an older generation and a bit stuck in the 50s and next time I will definitely look around before I book. I did travel with 7 others my daughter being 15, she didn't join the teen club but I think most of the post 15-teens didn't. Hence didn't make that many friends. Mostly American teens who tended to stick together! I went to Sky walkers with my son and nephew who are 21/20 a couple of times (my nephew was not allowed to drink alcohol) they were very unimpressed with the nightlife and it is definitely not for young adults. Staterooms were very clean and well equipt, beds were very comfortable and the room was always clean with fresh towels, beach towels, complimentary shampoo/conditioner/body lotion provided from the on-board spa. A very enjoyable holiday but judging from the reviews of a gentleman on here who was on my cruise and who I overheard him relay his exact review to another holiday maker on the beach in Princess Cays (down to the skip in the Bob Marley tape) it would seem there is a whole world of cruises out there who cater to different people and if this was his worst cruise then Im going to be even more impressed with my next one! Happy Cruising.
