Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This cruise visited great ports. While the excursions were expensive they were interesting. If you have problems walking avoid a cabin in the front part of the ship. Since they do not serve lunch in the dining rooms ( room service and buffet restaurant are only options) you have to walk a very long way to the back of the ship where the restaurants are. We were in cabin E101 ( deck 8) which is right next to a crew area and were frequently disturbed by things being dropped, stabilizers being deployed, and on the first morning an alarm that awoke us at 6:15 am and went off for two hours. Not what you need when trying to adjust to the five hour time difference. We had any time dining and had 4 nights when service was very slow. The movies were recent and the movies under the stars were great. Overall, we enjoyed this cruise.

Kissing the Blarney Stone requires a difficult climb up uneven steps.

If you love flowers you must visit Powerscourt Estate.
