Introduction

Christened in 2008, the Ruby Princess is the newest ship in the Princess Cruises fleet, with an emphasis on entertaining couples seeking a romantic getaway. The ship features 18 decks (decks 1-19 with 13 superstitiously absent), five pools and spas (including the adult-only Sanctuary), three bars, three nightclub-style lounges, Gatsby's casino, traditional and specialty dining. There are also six different types of staterooms, including family suites with room for up to eight passengers and under-18 entertainment options for those traveling with a family.

There is much to do aboard the Ruby Princess, but there are plenty of quiet areas as well. The food is above average, with a variety of choices for every meal. We would like to make special mention of the small bites spread around the many bars and lounges, which were just spectacular. It could be difficult to navigate through the winding decks and passageways. There were a lot of closed areas, like dead ends in a maze.
