So this was my and my husband's first cruise and we were not sure if being confined to the small area was our thing. Boy, were we wrong.... The boat is really big and it never feels crowded. There were 3,000 passangers and 1,200 crew. The food in the dining rooms was first class. We had 4 course meels including soup, salads, main course and dessert. Manu is different everyday so you can try different things like prime rib, lobster, pheasant, beef wellington, etc. Huge selection of choices in the all you can eat buffet, not that the quality is that great. The grill option and pizza bar was very good and they were right by the pool. The amount of activities on the boat is just increadible. From bingo to zumba classes, from movies played on the big screen by the pool to ballroom classes and everything in between. We were not bored for one second if we really wanted to do something. There were many different shows and entertainment options in the everning. We saw two different comedians, which were great!!! There were live bands, broadway type production shows, contests, art shows and demonstrations. We did not see to many little kids, which was great. But they do have great entertainment area for just kids so I think most of them were there. We do ballroom dancing so we had planty of opportunity to do that. I would highly recommend Princess and Ruby.
As far as the destination, we liked most of the islands but some have kind of third world feel. St Marteen felt poor and dirty. In St Thomas we did the excersion to St John to do snorkling at Trunk Bay. That was amazing....
on Grund Turk we did the bike tour of the island which you can do in an hour and a half. The island was distroyed few years ago by a huricane and many parts have not been rebuild.
Overall, would do it again, ready to book another one.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Had interiar room since was afraid of the motion sickness but the boat did not feel like it was moving once we were at the ocean. Room was small, so was the bathroom but it's about what we expected. Very clean and the staff changed the towels and made the bed twice a day.

Pros: Loved everything about it

Cons: Some of the islands

Recommends Ruby Princess? Yes!
