Default Ruby Princess

I can't find any transatlantic cruise on the Ruby Princess in October/November. I don't think that it's already sold out or that Princess will cross the Atlantic with an empty ship.

Looks like you've already booked Ruby for Nov 08...she's only scheduled so far on the princess website for Western Caribbean r/t Ft. Lauderdale.

Default Ruby Transatlantic

Ruby Princess will do its TA in early November with the start up team on board, but no paying passengers. The first cruise with passengers will be Nov. 15.

Default Ruby transatlantic re-positioning cruise

Yes, TA here means Transatlantic. According to Thowan, our room steward on the Emerald last month, a start-up team of Princess staff will bring the ship from Fincantieri shipyard to Fort Lauderdale prior to the Nov. 15 inaugural cruise. There are no passengers on the transatlantic cruise as far as I know. My wife and I are booked on the inaugural cruise on Nov. 15.

Looking forward to a new boat. It is the same size as Crown and Emerald.

Yep. I'm booked and looking forward to it. Fortunately, I have two more cruises to help tide me over until the 15th arrives.

Is anybody planning on arriving in FLL early? I'm thinking of going early and booking a hotel with a view of the port.

Ihaven't decide yet but most probably I will do the Eurodam from Nov.8-15 (because they have cancelled my Oct18-25 cruise on the Eurodam)and then board the Ruby Princess. If that is not the case I will arrive 2-3 days earlier, but will stay with my friend who lives in Boca. I'll let you know so maybe we can go for a drink before we set sail.

SharHite, Coo359a2 and Okiguy maybe we can sit together for dinner. Right now I have first seating, but won't mind changing it. Pls let me know what you think about the idea and with how many people you will be travelling.

That would be great. We have first seating listed on the booking confirmation, but will happily change it. There will be two of us, my husband Mike and me.

I'll be waiving at you on the 29th, when the Independence of the Seas sets sail to the Eastern Caribbean.

We asked Princess about that and the answer was that the Ruby will do the Transatlantic with a crew that will be finishing her up, getting her ready and training her staff. So they are not putting passengers on her.

We have anytime dining so that we aren't tied down to a specific time. But I am sure that we will meet up at some of the group meetings the other board is talking about.

Sorry about that -- we're on the 11/15/08 sailing. I was posting to let Gfleo know that we were not able to join him at dinner.

We are staying with the 15th sailing as our Royal P cruise ends on the 15th. I wasn't about to cancel that cruise to switch to the inaugural on the 8th. I'm looking on the bright side - if there are kinks/problems/etc hopefully they are worked out by our sailing . Our Royal P cruisemates - Donna and Dennis will also stay on the 15th sailing.

Roll call on the other cruise board is really dwindling down with everyone switching. Will be interesting to see who all will remain on the 15th.

Happy cruising to you and SharHite
