This was our second time trying to see Fiji as an earlier cruise could not go there because of storms. Understandable. However from Day 1 toilet issues, unpleasant smells, internet dropouts, and earlier online excursions not showing on ships computer it was frustrating and infuriating. It almost looked like we were not going to make it to Fiji yet again. By Day 5 after MUCH reporting our toilet got fixed until the 2nd last day. The foul smells at times were overbearing. Lost our minutes on the mediocre internet which did get reissued. The Piazza area is far too small and dangerous. Often passengers were standing up and down the stairs to view the proceedings. Ruby Princess certainly had better days. Our first time on this particular ship. Our many other previous Princess cruises were great would not have any problem recommending it. A lot of other little things that pushed our COME BACK NEW to get us off here. My hubby hates flying so cruising is what we love to do. I have traveled with many of our family and friends. Choose well in future. The ship overall is small, feels claustrophobic. The dining was good. Most staff were pleasant however it was as if the right hand did not know what the left hand was doing. The safety drill was carried out in the Princess Theatre which was better than some other ships that have you standing up on the outside decks. Usually love the Princess line however Ruby did disappoint us.

Maybe we might get to Fiji this time.
