The Ruby Pricess had great service with very helpful staff. There are fun places to go on the ship, You don't have to drink to listen to the music or see the entertainment. I would reccommend this ship to others. We have sailed on two other cruiselines. We purchased an interior cabin this time because the only reason to be in there is to change from one activity to another and sleep. The shower is tight but the sink and shelves are more than adequate. I was surprised to see that we had a refrigrator in the room.
Ship Quality
very clean,
Food and Dining
enjoyed the variety and presentation
Cabin / Stateroom roomy enough for us- Queen size bed, storage, refrig. too!
Service and Staff from maintenance to stewards, waiters, security- everyone that we came in contact with was helpful and friendly
Entertainment the entertainment was "family friendly"
Children's Programs N/A
Onboard Activities
loved the movie screen outside, the music - no matter what your taste was presented.
Destinations and Excursions
way too crowed on St. Thomas with 5 ships at once.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)
even though it belonged to the island - the soda pop was sold( did not honor the sticker)
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
it was crazy with 4 ships at the same time.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas


Check out all the buffet lines before you choose.. they are not the same! Suggest that you try the formal dining at least once. AND try NEW foods- not every day you can have that opprtunity...but if you insist on burger and fries - they are by the pool.
Also - wait until the entire week of photos are taken before you buy- you might like another night better than the first.
If you drink soda pop - buy a sticker for the week. It saves you money.
