April 2014 - Ruby Princess to Caribbean - Eastern
As an experienced cruiser, I was more than a little disappointed with this cruise. Princess is the only cruise line that I had not yet cruised with and I had high expectations, but I most likely will not be back. The food was very unimpressive, the service was often times prickly and not as friendly as other lines I have been on, and the big criticism was lack of things to do. With 2 teenagers in tow, I was hoping there would be many things to do, but the biggest things for kids to do is swim and watch the movie that plays on the outdoor jumbotron screen. No water slides, no wave pool, no rock climbing....there were ping pong tables, a very bare mini golf course, and a basektball hoop though. There ws a great comedian on board one night, but the magician was very disappointing. His show lasted for a total of 35 minutes. Overall, it was a nice relaxing time and would probably be nice for a low key older couple with no kids.
