For the most part, Ruby Princess isn't an innovator.The cruise liner has all the most popular Princess facilities - like the 3-deck Piazza with its own bakery, as well as many of those found on older vessels, including the Sanctuary (adults sundeck) and specialty restaurants Sabatini's and Crown Grill.
The brand new Royal Princess became line's flagship in May 2013, and a year later was joined by a new sister-ship, Regal Princess.
The 113,561-ton, 3,080-passenger cruise ship Ruby Princess follows the highly evolutionary Crown Princess and Emerald Princess cruise ships.
The vessels are virtually the same in layout and design, so if travelers have sailed on Crown, they will not have any trouble finding their way around Emerald or Ruby.
But for those who have not traveled on Princess' Grand-class vessels, or for cruisers for whom a Ruby Princess sailing is their first cruise with the line, the ship is going to surprise, and in most cases, delight them with far higher levels of kitchen, service and facilities than passengers would expect on a stylish, mega-vessel catering to over 3,000 guests.
There are also signature pastas and choices like Caesar salad and salmon.
The healthy Lotus Spa selections are low in sodium and fat.
Cafe Caribe and Horizon Court look identical and are open all day long.
The Horizon section serves as lido buffet restaurant and features breakfast buffets.
Share is only open for dinner and applies a cover charge.
Its menu features five areas from which to select multiple dishes and a charcuterie platter.
Most Ruby Princess staterooms are 170balcony rooms (680).
