12 Night Grand Mediterranean (Venice To Barcelona)
Sail Date: June 21, 2011
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The Ruby Princess is a nice cruise liner with pleasant rooms, good dining and friendly staff. The ports of call were pretty nice except for Cannes, where the town had little to offer and there was not enough time to go to Nice. The onboard entertainment was substandard.

Livorno is a pit, Pisa was OK, and Florence was too far away..
Don't Miss: Pisa.

Naples is a pit, but Pompeii was worth it.

Nice beaches.
Don't Miss: We took a bus, which was OK, but we really should have rented scooters.

We took a cab to Athens and were ripped off. We took a train back and found the ride interesting (although crowded).
Don't Miss: Acropolis

You can skip Cannes - the stpo is too short to go to Nice.
Don't Miss: We should have just gone to the beaches.

You need more than one day to see Rome, so start your trip off there before going to Venice.
Don't Miss: Lots of things.

There was a long walk to the ship from the water bus stop. If the cruise line had told us, we would have taken their launch service from St Mark's square.
Don't Miss: walk through town and ride a water bus.

Pros: The ports of call, crise ship

Cons: Nickel and diming on cruise amenities, poor entertainment

Recommends Ruby Princess? Yes!
