7 Night California Coastal (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 22, 2016
Ship: Ruby Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: R619
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Check in at San Pedro was so smooth and there was no waiting in long lines.
We did express walk off with all our bags and that was fast also.  Anytime dining option only offered 530-545pm or 8pm reservations.  They were not at all flexible which does not sound like Anytime dining.  We enjoyed all the ports but Santa Barbara is a tender port and that is a hassle.  Speciality dining has $29 or $39 cover charge which is pricey.  Crown grill has great food but service was slow and they would only give our party of six a 530pm reservation eventho we called early.  The new SHARE restaurant for $39 does not have a very appealing menu.

Production shows are great but other times there were several comedians and one not so good.

cabin was fine for a 7 day cruise. We liked being on 14 because it was close to buffet and getting coffee in the morning. The carpet seems to be getting tired. Our friends had NEW carpet in mini-suite.

Ship Tip

Ask to sit at Edsel's table in Michaelangelo dining room 207 this cruise.
