We loved the Ruby Princess.  She is a beautiful ship.  The entertainment in the theater was up to cruise ship par.  The Irish comedian, George Casey, was hysterical.  The lounge singers were just OK.  We really enjoyed the local groups they brought on board.  

The restaurants were great.  We chose anytime dining, and the DaVini and Michelangelo Rests. Were fabulous, as was the specialty steak restaurant.

The steward and the wait staff are trained to make sure you enjoy yourself.  Everyone of them was cordial and pleasant.  Everyone of the crew was very helpful.

Where we had some issues was with getting on and off the ship for the excursions.  We were tendered into shore twice.  Both times we waited in long lines for the tenders to pick us up, and once we were boarding the ship, there was only one security check-in machine, which made the lines very, very long.  People, including us, were getting impatient.  Princess should have at least two machines at each entrance to make embarkation much easier.

We've sailed on other cruise lines, and we would definitely sail on Princess again.
