12 Night Grand Mediterranean (Venice To Barcelona)
Sail Date: May 28, 2011
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 6 years ago
On all Princess ships the interior design is rather dark and nostalgic. I prefer a lighter design. However, what I truly appreciate is the out-doors lay-out of the shops. You can always find privacy, the pool in the aft is great. On the bigger ships I enjoy the terrace outside Sabatini's.

On our last cruise over Christmas we have experienced the best service ever on Princess Cruises, this time, I rather experience a so-so service on board. No motivation as well coming from the service supervisors. Nobody did go the extra-mile.

Excursion not necessary. Wast of money - especially with a useless tourguide. Best recommended to do it on your own.
