Review summary

Ruby Princess is starting to show its age with backed up sinks and toilets and problems with the toilets' vacuum system (sometimes works, sometimes doesn't work). The furniture and carpet are nice but nicked and worn. On the other hand, the new HD TVs were welcome, compared to the blurry older sets in the cabins. It would also help that the daily newsletter is proofread so there are no date and time mistakes and misspelled words! The front desk never answers its phones, so you have to go down and stand in line to talk to someone. The ports in the Sea of Cortez were OK, but one-time visits. We only saw whales at the mouth to the Cabo bay/Sea of Cortez entrance and the Pacific. Never saw any wildlife in the Sea of Cortez!
