Ruby princess mediterranean

Sail Date: September 02, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

New and clean and well appointed. Self laundry was a plus on a 12 day voyage.

Pros: The itenerary is excellent, beds very comfortable, food average

Cons: The outdoor movie screen played so loudly it ruined the entire deck and pool area day and night

Recommends Ruby Princess? No.

Food and Dining
The food in the dining room was the same at the buffet--average and repetitive. Even frequent princess cruisers felt the food was sub-par for Princess lines.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Monte Carlo, Monaco
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Istanbul, Turkey
It was Ramadan and the grand bazaar was closed. This may have added to the huge crowds that lessened the enjoyment of this clean, beautiful exotic city.
Don't Miss: Beauty of the Mosques.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
The city of Athens was beautiful in addition to the Acropolis. The shopping was the best of the trip.
Don't Miss: Acropolis
Naples, Italy
Take a water shuttle to Sorrento. Not much to see in Naples itself. Consider the hot weather before opting for more ruins in Pompei.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
I enjoyed this port more than Istanbul. Try the turkish tea--it is great.
Don't Miss: Ephesus was very special.
Mykonos, Greece
Loved Mykonos! A relaxing stop in this busy paced itenerary and perfectly charming.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Venice, Italy
There is no place on earth quite like Venice. I wouldn't have missed it. Best prices for inexpensive souvenir gifts.
Don't Miss: Get off the Grand canal with diesel fumes of the boats. Stay and play on the small canal quiet areas and go into every church. The art is fabulous.
