Photos from Ruby Princess 3/31 - 4/7

Recommended Posts

This cruise was mainly just to get away for a few days to relax and rest so we did not do many activities. In addition we ate all our meals in the buffet (except for our first night's dinner, when we ordered room service). Instead I will just post a few pictures from around the ship.

 

Oh, and Princess Patters can be found here. Enjoy!

 

Let's start off with the atrium...

Let's get the stateroom tour out of the way next. I will say we were pleasantly surprised with the size of our inside stateroom. As you can see from my signature, we are Disney Cruise lovers so we are used to larger staterooms and cabin baths, but we really loved the layout of our Ruby Princess stateroom, and with the exception of the incredibly tiny shower we had no issues at all with it!

 

Our bed turned down for the night

The desk area, which we utilized often during the course of our cruise

My absolute favorite part of our stateroom - the very roomy walk-in closet area (five suitcases worth of "stuff" fit here with room to spare)!

The dreaded teensy shower

Plenty of shelf space near the sink

Dining areas up next

 

Michaelangelo Dining Room (please note this was taken when I went down to check out a sale...that I walked away from empty-handed, the horrors!)

We barely utilized the pools, but I did enjoy the Lotus Spa pool and hot tubs twice during the week.

Sadly I did not get a daytime shot of the Calypso Reef pool. :(

A little bit of nightlife. We enjoyed Explorers Lounge one evening for about 30 minutes, and I did go to an event in Club Fusion. Oh, I also had a drink up in Skywalkers one late afternoon.

A quick peek into the spa and gym.

 

The gym is rather large, but I just took a shot from the entrance

I should have included this in the atrium photos. From the first formal night, the infamous Champagne Waterfall. Commodore Giuseppe Romano with the first champagne pour.

And some lovely shots of the Ruby Princess while in port.

 

We had a switch of ports, and ended up in Nassau first

The best I did in St. Maarten (Ruby Princess is behind Thomson Dream and in front of Celebrity Equinox...a Ruby sandwich!)

Here she is in St. Thomas...

And of course at Princess Cays

Excellent photos. We loved the Ruby when we were on her for our Grand Mediterranean cruise last summer! We were upgraded to a Mini Suite and it was fantastic!

BTW the Bathroom was quite a bit larger with a bathtub / shower that was quick roomy.

The uncovered balcony was not a problem at all as we spent some nice nights under the stars.

Thank you for the feedback and kind remarks. Even a month and a half after the cruise, I still think back fondly on the Ruby. We will definitely sail her again!
