  3. Ruby Princess
Most of the cruise was fine with the exception of some staffing issues. Bar staff were awful, it was difficult to get a drink a lot of the time, shore tours staff couldn't care less and didn't really know what they were selling. Restaurant staff and cabin stewards were excellent and could not be faulted. Not a lot of activities for teens and the staff in the kids club were hit and miss. One day two of them seemed to be hungover and were moaning loudly that they didn't want to be there. They introduced the medallion class for this cruise and it had a lot of issues that impacted on the experience. This would have been a good addition if it worked correctly. Overall a neutral experience and may make me consider whether to cruise with Princess again. Hopefully the two new ships being launched are in the same class as Majectic.

Not the best experience but a pass mark
