Ruby Princess, Hawaii

Sail Date: February 14, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Anytime Dinning - Was poor because we had to wait 30-45 min to be seated.  The tables for 2 were actually so close together they were tables for 4 or 6.

Food - Was ok, but nothing to write home about.

Room - Was good, needed re-do.

Service- Was overall very good.  One night in dinning room had a 1 hour dinner, waiter was overwhelmed by the number of tables he had. Cut backs(?)  The guests at the tables on either side of us both left early, couldn't wait any longer.

Entertainment - Good to Very good.

Ship - Older, in definite need of re-do. 

Photo Gallery - Overpriced.

Specialty Dinning- Great, Crown Grill was excellent.

Ports - Excellent

Tender to Island - Poor- Had to wait 45 min in line to get tender back to ship. No regard for elderly or handicapped.

Embarkation - Easy

Debarkation - A real cluster, NO crew to supervise - everyone for themselves.

Lounges - All well worn, some furniture was filthy.

Next cruise will be Royal Caribbean.





Cabin / Stateroom
Clean, thanks to steward, Only one chair, no couch. Definitely well worn in need of re-do.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation - Easy
