This was a great cruise with a great itinerary. Nine ports in 11 days with 2 sea days; one here, one there. The Ruby Princess embarked from Rome (Civitavecchia) to Naples, Italy; Santorini, Greece; Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey; Mykonos, Greece; Athens, Greece; Katakolon (Olympia), Greece; Corfu, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia; and overnight in Venice, Italy. The food was very good in the main ...

General insight I am late 30's, my spouse is mid 40's. This outing was to praise our 15 year celebration and it was our first time to Europe. The #1 recommendation I would provide for anybody on an outing like this is to do your exploration and arrange a long ways ahead keeping in mind the end goal to make the most out of each day - one day in a major European city obliges much development ...

12-day Med Cruise, Ruby Princess, Sept 2013

Age 70s

This was our first cruise ever as we had previously thought that we might feel bored or claustrophobic being on a ship for an extended period of time. We viewed a cruise ship as like a large hotel and no matter how nice the hotel is, we could not imagine staying there for 12 days. Also, we had traveled overnight on large ferries in the past and found them to be crowded, loud, smelly, unstable in ...

Just returned after 12 days in the Med on board the Ruby Princess, it is my second time with this line after doing the Panama relocation on the Sea Princess. I read the reviews about the Ruby and I did have concerns about her size and the number of Passengers. I also read a lot of negative reviews about service, food etc, which I guess is down to individual taste. Ok so here is my view of this ...

We last cruised with Princess in 2009 with subsequent cruises on Holland America and Celebrity. After a wonderful cruise on the Ruby we definitely will be back to Princess in the future. Of course, we have been on some cruises that are better than others, but never a bad cruise, however, this was one of our best. We stayed a couple days in Rome and then used Rome Cabs for easy ride to ...

My partner and I are on our 26th and 25th cruise respectively and had previously sailed on the Ruby Princess three times, all in the Caribbean. When we saw her itinerary for the summer, we started planning our vacation. Fortunately, we were able to get the same cabin we had the other three times, a roomy cabin on the Lido Deck. We flew from Miami to Rome three days early and stayed in a nice, ...

This was our first cruise on Princess. We started cruising with Royal Carribean (RCL) and then switched to Celebrity. Neither offered a Med itinerary we wanted. This Princess cruise did so we decided to try them out. This was our 2nd Med cruise, the first being a 12 day trip from Barcelona, around France and Italy and back on RCL. That cruise was magnificent, and this cruise turned out to be ...

We (early 30's) have been anticipating this particular itinerary (Jun 22 sailing) from Princess for several years. Being this was a milestone anniversary, we decided now was the time. This was our 9th Princess cruise, 11th overall. This review is lengthy, but I appreciated those who took the time to detail out their trips on this itinerary (i.e. SingerEsq), especially since this is a bigger ...
