Food was really good! We loved getting dressed up every night for the main dining room, love the different choices every night. We really enjoyed the Ruby Princess.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There was so much to do everyday, I loved Zumba on sea days, it’s a fun way to exercise while on board. I love the bracelet giveaway and we got to collect a new charm each day. A nice piece of jewellery to remember our cruise.

I liked listening to live music while drinking coffee at the Atrium. I love all the Christmas decorations on board too. We also enjoyed the magician.

Children's Programs

Our boys enjoyed kids club. They had fun activities everyday. This cruise they were separated, they didn’t go as much as if they were in the same group. They still had fun. All the staff were sweet and caring.

Cabin / Stateroom

We choose this cabin cause it’s easy for our kids to remember. It’s spacious and clean, has everything we need. Had a big TV. The kids loved watching a movie each night before bed. There was many new movies to choose from.

Ports of call

Isle Of Pines (Ile Des Pins), New Caledonia

5 out of 5
My favourite port. Soft white sand, clear blue water. Love the locals selling souvenirs. We brought fresh coconuts and swam for hours.

Mystery Island, Vanuatu

5 out of 5
We swam in the beach, gorgeous locals selling food and drinks. We took some beautiful photos. My boys can swim all day.

Noumea, New Caledonia

5 out of 5
We arrived to Sunday, everything was closed. We went on a train tour for 1.5 hours which was fun for the kids to explore the city. It’s a beautiful city. We enjoyed our day at port.
