Review summary

Compare to other cruise ships I’ve been on, Ruby Princess is much better as far as food, entertainment. If I have to pick on something, It’s the way the dining room tables are arranged for the two-person tables (they are next to the other two person tables), makes it awkward because you’re not sure whether to talk to the people in neighboring tables.

I highly recommend the Sea Car Tours. Rental office is Walking distance from the port in Portola Hotel. Rent the yellow car for an hour and drive to all the points of interest along the coast.

San Diego, California

No hassle. We didn’t check in luggage so just walked off the ship.
