  3. Ruby Princess
The food on Princess has gone way downhill. Very few tasty dishes, having to ask for butter is just a sign of cheapness. Repeatedly, night after night. So you sit down, see the bread that should tide you over until the ordering and delivery of appetizers, have to ask for the butter, wait until someone (with a major attitude) retrieves it and delivers it - then you can eat the bread. Such a hassle!! Steaks were tough and small. Lobster tails were ok - and you can order 2 at a time to speed it up. Specialty Dining - Share by Curtis Stone - awful appetizers. Whoever assembled the Charcuterie platter had never seen one before. Hint - more then one tiny piece of meat or sliced cheese. The pork tenderloin was very nice and service here was good. Good bed, nice TV in the room with a great happy Steward. Lotus Spa had good steam rooms and the hot stone beds were lovely. The staff at the Spa seemed to enjoy their jobs the most Getting on and off the ship was a breeze - they have these procedures worked out perfectly and was very smooth and fast. Well done!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin ID D712
Small but it was sufficient. Shower just has a curtain, kinda weird. No conditioner or Shampoo so bring your own or run to the Walmart at Puerta Vallerta like EVERYONE on the ship.
