  3. Ruby Princess
After sailing multiple times with Norwegian, we thought we would "Step Up" and sail with Princess. What a mistake.... worst food and poorest selection for buffet for 1st five days and then selection got minimally better but quality remained poor. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner buffets consistantly poor quality, bad service, sad faced employes. Paid for 2 nights in Specialty Restaurant "Crown Grill" steakhouse, mediocre food, BAD service. No better in dining rooms, BAD service mediocre food, poor selection. many public Restrooms out of service entire cruise. Nice balcony Cabin, deck 10 C405 and excellent room steward "David Kurniawan". Very organized and well run boarding and disembarkation. Lacking any quality entertainment, shows etc. Truly SAD. Clean well run Casino, however I would have liked a "real dealer" and real cards while playing poker instead of the big shiny glass computer screen. We are really NOW looking forward To our next Norwegian "Fun" Cruise. We did not appreciate Norwegian until sailing on the Ruby Princess

WOW!!!
