Ruby Princess Cruise Review by fishguidebrian
- Sail Date: February 2012
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We began checking out the ship, beings we had our daughter, who is 5, travelling with us, of course our 1st stop was the Princess Pelicans club. We introduced her and signed her in ofr the next days adventures wich was to include Princess Cays. The kids staff did a FANTSASTIC job all week long. Their were not a bunch of kids on board but enough came to Pelicans to make it very fun for her as she loved all of the group leaders, especially Liberty and Lydia who went out of their making things enjoyable for the kids!
As to us, we soon settled in and began enjoying the fabulous ship. Dinner was fantastic every night, we choose open dining and never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a group table. On our anniversary we ate in the Crown Grille, I was disappointed with our waiter as he was foul mouthed and kinda rude but the rest of the staff and the food made up for it. As to the entertainment, it was good, some better than others but typical for a ship now days it seems. All in all, we had a blast, loved Princess and we will be back as this was our 1st time with them!

Grand TurkBest beaches on the Eastern Caribbean trip. We spent the afternoon here after a brief taxi ride into town. I'd skip town next time and just relax at the beach!View All 1,747 Grand Turk Cruise Port Reviews

Princess CaysGreat beaches, excellent kids facilities and well worth it to rent the clam shell for some shade as the sun came out and this being the 1st day in the sun after a long Washington winter, shade was nice! The buffet food wasn't as good as the burgers and dogs on the ship so we waited to eat once we re boarded. I will say that we didn't have to wait in a tender line at all either which was fairly impressive as the ship was full and lots of people were heading out at the same time.View All 396 Princess Cays Cruise Port Reviews

St. MaartenJust wandered around town on the Dutch side. It's pretty typical, very commercialized and all about sales. One nice thing is the beach and the many good bars nearby. We did find the McDonalds of course, with our 5 year old's help and they did offer $1 ice cream cones:)View All 4,132 St. Maarten Cruise Port Reviews

City TourHad a great Island tour on our way to Blackbeard's castle from a local and then on to the tour, which included the castle, rum factory, amber museum and several old colonial era houses. Very well worth it. Shopping on our way back to the ship and the water taxi back to the Pier was nice too!View All 85 City Tour Reviews
