Ruby Princess cruises for 2019-2020-2021


Ruby Princess arrives in Sydney late October 2019 for Australia’s summer season. The transpacific cruise from Vancouver or Los Angeles will be very popular, with two stops in Hawaii (take a helicopter ride in Jurassic Park territory), an overnight in French Polynesia, and five ports in New Zealand. Or, take the reverse crossing in April 2020. From Sydney Ruby Princess offers many sailings to New Zealand, also to Pacific islands, the Great Barrier Reef, and Tasmania. From May to September 2020 cruises make a 7-night round trip to the glacier coast of Alaska. Then from October 2020 until April 2021 Ruby Princess will be based in San Francisco. From there head for Hawaii or the Mexican Riviera. Princess Line has an excellent range of on-shore programs for each port of call, possibly the best of any major Line, and these can be planned ahead of the cruise, or organised during the cruise. Princess Cruises offer three wedding packages (and live web cam) and Vow Renewals.

Life aboard Ruby Princess
Ruby Princess arrives in Sydney late October 2019 for Australia’s summer season. The transpacific cruise from Vancouver or Los Angeles will be very popular, with two stops in Hawaii (take a helicopter ride in Jurassic Park territory), an overnight in French Polynesia, and five ports in New Zealand. Or, take the reverse crossing in April 2020. From Sydney Ruby Princess offers many sailings to New Zealand, also to Pacific islands, the Great Barrier Reef, and Tasmania. From May to September 2020 cruises make a 7-night round trip to the glacier coast of Alaska. Then from October 2020 until April 2021 Ruby Princess will be based in San Francisco. From there head for Hawaii or the Mexican Riviera. Princess Line has an excellent range of on-shore programs for each port of call, possibly the best of any major Line, and these can be planned ahead of the cruise, or organised during the cruise. Princess Cruises offer three wedding packages (and live web cam) and Vow Renewals.

Being a large resort ship built in 2008 and refitted in 2015, on-board entertainment and facilities are state-of-the-art for cruise ships. The ship itself is a cruise destination. She has two decks of public spaces and plenty of lifts and staircases that make for ease of movement. There is an ‘adults only’ two-deck Sanctuary area with padded sunloungers and pool for your solitude, and a Princess innovation the giant outdoor ‘Movies Under the Stars’ screen. This ship tends to attract a lot of families and multigenerational groups. Boarding logistics are very smooth. Tips and gratuities are additional. The Ultimate Ship Tour looks behind the scenes at main areas of the ship such as the kitchens, engine room and bridge: very popular. Finding something to do on this ship should never be a problem.

Accommodation
There are six types of cabin and 35 price categories: insides, outsides (some obstructed), balcony cabins, outside mini-suites (with and without balconies) and balcony suites. Cabins are roomy and nicely appointed, with satellite TV access to major channels. Standard cabins are practical and attractive, many have additional upper berths for children, and some have inter-connecting doors. The larger the stateroom, the more additional facilities. All guests receive turndown service, chocolates on pillow at night, bathrobes and amenity kits, and complimentary room service on most items 24 hours a day. There are no single cabins, 31 wheelchair-accessible cabins, and some cabins accommodate families of three and four.

Five types of suites are available, including two interconnecting family suites, each of which can sleep four adults and two children on sofas. Mid-priced suites compare more than favourably with motel accommodation, amenities and service. Most balconies give privacy, and some can be joined with other balconies when travelling in a group. Suites have a bathtub and second TV. The 28 suites and 178 mini-suites cover a large range of sizes and additional free-bees such as complimentary laundry and shoe shine, a selection of pillows, daily in-room canapés and high tea, free Internet access, and much more. The one Grand Suite has effectively two entertainment areas and a double balcony area, all great for entertaining. There are no butlers for any staterooms. Smoking is only permitted in designated smoking areas, and excludes staterooms and balconies.

Food and Dining
Traditional dining in the Palm Dining Room offers you a pre-selection of one of two seating times throughout the cruise. Anytime Dining (sitting when and with whom you choose) is offered in the Coral and the Island Dining Rooms. Both serve five course meals changed daily, with chefs inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Sabatini’s serves Italian cuisine, Crown Grill serves steak and seafood, and there’s Crab Shack (all for an extra cover charge). Dress code is smart casual, and on cruises longer than three days dress for a formal night for every week of sailing. Breakfast and lunch are provided in an open seating arrangement. (Of course a continental breakfast can be delivered to your stateroom, and there is a stateroom menu.) Passengers booked in cabins with balconies can order several special, romantic meals to be served restaurant-style on the verandah - Ultimate Balcony Dining. Order special dietary requests before sailing.

Casual dining is available at Horizon Court buffet all day and informal sit-down waiter service at night. The pizzeria gives an excellent choice, and will also provide room delivery for a small charge. There is a burger and hotdog grill, and take-away food is available at the pool side. For lighter snacks try the ice-cream sundae bar, or the patisserie for coffees and pastries. Afternoon tea is served daily. There are 12 bars and lounges. Coffee, iced tea and milk are available 24 hours a day. For an exclusive (extra charge) dining experience for ten guests make a reservation for The Chef’s Table. Chocolate Journeys is new.

Entertainment
As for entertainment, there is more than can be squeezed into a week. The Princess Theatre is two decks high, featuring glamorous production shows every second or third evening. The Vista Show Lounge with its three stages presents cabaret, and doubles for lectures, bingo and horse-racing during the day. Explorer’s Lounge hosts cabaret acts and dance bands. Movies first-run feature films pool-side at Under the Stars on Sun Deck. There are 12 bars and lounges with live music and dancing. A new feature is the new three-deck-high street-cafe-style Piazza, for sipping coffee and watching the occasional passing performer. Stroll around and shop duty-free, or check your email at the Internet Café.

Princess on-shore programs are outstanding, and information about shore options is comprehensive. On board, enrichment programs include the ScholarShip@Sea program, which presents six self-improvement programs each day, with a charge for advanced classes. The core subjects are: Culinary Arts, Visual/Creative Arts, Photography, and Computer Technology. There is a pottery studio complete with electric kiln, karaoke, virtual golf, art auctions, and casino gambling. Five pools spread the crowd. Fun activities surround the pool areas and include a nine-hole putting course, virtual golf, and ball games. One can retire to the library and writing room, the adults-only lounge, work out in the gyms, or relax in a spa or hot tub. While passengers are generally older, each young age group has five-star special facilities and programs.
