7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 02, 2011
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
We cruised the Ruby Princess to the Eastern Caribbean. Very clean ship and well-organized staff. Our room was clean and well-appointed with plenty of closet space and very comfortable bed. Food was all venues, from the formal dining room, buffet, Crowne Grill, and poolside cafes. Great activities, especially the casino. Entertainment was very good. It didn't hurt that the weather was unbelievably good. Overall, we had a great time and would not hesitate returning to the Ruby Princess.

Grand Turk was a real disappointment. It didn't help that another cruise ship was also there, resulting in thousands of people on a relatively small beach. We took a taxi into the historic town, which isn't worth the $5.00 to get there. Better to stay on the ship.

Wandering around town is fun. Lots to see.
Don't Miss: Mega-yacht watching. Walk along the harbor and see the giant pleasure yachts.

Very clean. Crystal clear water. We weren't inundated by jewelry shops like we were on some of the other islands.

We love St. Maarten (had our honeymoon there 25 years ago). We took a combination bus tour/cruise from Phillipsburg to Marigot. A very nice way to see the island. Very friendly staff.
Don't Miss: Eat lunch at La Vien Rose in Marigot.

Pros: Food was superb; accomodations were clean and roomy (balcony); fun activities

Cons: minor point...our waiter was not particularly friendly

Recommends Ruby Princess? Yes!
