Review SummaryWe thought with the Ruby Princess being brand new and all that the cruise would be just wonderful. Well to our surprise, the ship was beautiful, but we were not happy with the service. The bartenders could not make a good drink. The cocktail waiters didn't even know what certain drinks were. The waiters in the main dining room were slow, didn't check on you at all after serving. As for the specialty dining rooms, they ran out of food that was on the menu, couldn't accommodate you if you wanted something else other then what they were offering, even though you were paying extra to be there.
The crew staff in the excursions need to check into the excursions alittle better before giving advice. They told us to dress a certain way and that was not how you should have dressed for that excursion.
Nightlife after 12 p.m.... there was non!!!! Would not recommend this to anyone who is young and wants to spend time enjoying each others company late at night listening to a band. All the bands shut down at 12:00.
Not singling out older people, but this would be great for 60 and up. This cruise was made for older people not young.
Ports of Call
Pros: The cabin rooms were nice
Cons: The ships entertainment schedule. The entertainment was always going on about the same time. There was no nightlife atter 12:00.
