Review summary

Great cruise and itinerary. The Ruby Princess is a awesome ship and their crew members were very friendly and accommodating. Food in the buffet was good with adequate selection and the food in the dining rooms was excellent. Avoid any room with the bunk beds attached to the walls unless your sailing with close friends or family as the make the room very small even when they’re stored up. It was only my wife and I but they made it very difficult getting in and out of bed.

From the time we arrived at the terminal to walking on board the ship was less then 30 minutes. I would say the San Pedro port was one of the most organized that I have evrr experienced.

The cabin had two bunk beds attached to the wall on either side of our bed, which made it very difficult getting in and out of bed.
