Not as many activities as on previous cruises. Not enough description of activities in Patter. Cruise Director and staff not "out and about" as others.

Service and Staff

I thought the staff on the Crown was the best. This Ruby staff topped them!

Beautiful, but how about more dates at Santorini. Was far too crowded to enjoy charm.

Well planned tours. Too many tours at one restaurant .... all arrived at once. Same complaint at all tour restaurants... no vegetarian options offered.

More tours need to include museum.
Don't Miss: Acropolis

Not near enough time to see port, especially after tendering stopped for an hour for another ship to dock.

Tough port for boarding. More excursions needed on boarding day.
Don't Miss: St. Marks

Wonderful day at Cinque Terre. Having lunch on your own is a good option. You can take as much or as little time as you want. We took a quick bite so that we could see more! Didn't have to wait on everyone else.
Don't Miss: Cinque Terre

Have more tours that do not go to the Blue Mosque..... many of us have hit the top three sites before. Make rug demo more of an option.
Don't Miss: The port itself

Pros: The wonderful, friendly crew

Cons: Poor descriptions in Patter of daily activities

Recommends Ruby Princess? Yes!
