Princess Ruby - Sydney Brisbane airlie beach Yorkers knob port Douglas. Oct 2019 We went on sun princess the week before and getting on the Ruby Princess was hopeful this ship would be better. It was marginally better. Service poor not enough staff in the dining rooms. Staff were excellent trying to provide a good service but just didn’t have enough staff. Food - better than the sun princess. Still lacking in variety. Disembarkation slightly better than sun princess. Lots of queuing. Cabin was very good. Entrainment poor. A lot of passenger entrainment as opposed to professional entrainment which was poor quality. Very quiet in the evenings after 9.30pm lifeless. Not many people in the bars etc in evenings. Drinks expensive. Service poor general in dining rooms. Buffet lack of variety. Ports of call great. Would not recommend. Would only consider for itinerary if there were no other cruises offering the itinerary we want.

Disappointing cruise
