5 Night Western Caribbean Sampler (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 01, 2014
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

A short get-away for Spring Break.  We have cruised numerous times and different lines, so the good: Balcony room was as expected, as was entertainment and Horizon Buffet dining. Both embarkation and disembarkation was well organized. The fair: Main DR was a slight disappointment... no lobster unless going to specialty restaurant and paying cover charge. The poor: The quality of the cocktails was pitiful.  We did not see our room steward till the 4th day of the 5 day trip, and though it was obvious that the room had been "freshened" the mandatory gratuity was excessive for the level of service.

Ship Tip

Adult only pool, lounges, and hot tubs on Deck 16 were never crowded. Nice to get a lounge chair with a little more room!
