We asked one of our customers who have recently been aboard this cruise ship how they found the experience:
‘I really enjoyed my time on board the Ruby Princess, this was my first ever Cruise and I would seriously consider choosing a cruise for my own personal holiday.
If I had the choice of an all-inclusive land holiday or a cruise, I would not hesitate the cruise would win. The quality of the food and drinks were fantastic, along with wonderful service and not to mention being able to take in a number of destinations.’
