1-10 of 14 Princess Ruby Princess Cruise Reviews for Family Cruises to the Bahamas
My wife searched for bargain cruises while we are wintering in Florida and this cruise to Jamaica was what we chose. You get what you pay for. We've sailed on other Princess ships and this one didn't compare. Here are the Pros and Cons:
- Cabin stewart was excellent
- Ship was overall clean and in good repair
- International Cafe was superb
- Overall, the staff was friendly and ...
My husband and I just returned from a 5-night cruise to the Bahamas and Grand Turk on the Ruby Princess. We are in our mid-sixties, and both retired. This was our 6th cruise, 3rd with Princess. The other 3 were with Celebrity.
Mostly we take longer cruises, and 5 nights was definitely too short. But last summer we got an offer we couldn't refuse, a balcony stateroom for the cost of an oceanview, ...
Took this short cruise on a lark and a "special" that applied the price to a future cruise. The ship offered all the amenities you would expect and the staff was very efficient and assistive. Too short a trip to make any real judgments but a few things really stood out.
Check-in was a breeze and we able to immediately go to our cabin.
Food was okay but a bit below the standard for ...
This is our 2nd cruise on Princess, and it did not disappoint. After parking our vehicle in Park and Go (near the dock (very convenient due to lots of road construction in Fort Lauderdale) and reasonably priced, we arrived at the ship close to 1pm, and literally walked on (I had completed all required paperwork in advance). Since Princess always has their rooms ready early, we brought our carry-on ...
Just got back today; figured I'd write a review while it's fresh on my mind.
1. Very clean public rooms, state rooms, dining rooms, etc.: all first class.
2. Service and attitude among staff was professional, friendly and courteous.
3. Nightclubs/dancing (at Explorers): Thank goodness for the Liquid Blue Band. They were an awesome party / dance band that played in the Explorers Lounge. ...
This was bought on the premise that almost all our fare could be used on a new voyage before Dec. 31, 2014. We just wanted to get out of the Niagara area for a week and a half to escape the worst winter in years. We got the most expensive cabin left (C320) just a couple weeks before sailing and booked the Hyatt near the Harbour Shops the night before. Super hotel if the price is right. $6.50 cab ...

First let me disclose that I am a part-time travel agent, and limit myself to booking strictly for family and friends as I would never take on the responsibility of booking cabins for strangers. Too many liabilities and complainers! Besides I have a full time job! That said, I have been in the resort/travel industry for over 30 years and lived on 5 continents, 12 countries and many islands ...
Major flaws- played elevator music in the AM thru late mornings on the pool decks. Options for activities in the AM to late morning hours were card making and knitting. For REAL?
My wife and I have cruised on NCL 4x , Carnival 2 x. Princess was by far the most boring.
The entertainment in the evenings was pretty good.
The magician was fantastic.
The comedian was crude and allowed some old fart ...
