Default 1st Cruise - Ruby Princess

I understand that the Ruby Princess has yet to set sail, but it is a sister ship to the Emerald and one other ship, so I'm sure people should be able to help if my questions are not general.

I am planning my first cruise and I chose to go with Princess. I already had a room booked, but can always upgrade if I feel like it. This is my cruise:

Ruby Princess
Jan 3, 2009 - Jan 10, 2009
Fort Lauderdale ->
Ocho Rios, Jamaica ->
Grand Cayman Islands ->
Cozumel, Mexico ->
Princess Cays, Bahamas ->
Fort Lauderdale

After speaking with my travel agent (family friend), they suggested looking at air/hotel/cruise options all through Princess, which is what I did (planning on giong to FLL 2 days early on the 1st and staying on the beach for 2 nights before the cruise). I have committed to air/hotel/cruise with Princess.

I have done a good amount of research, but thought I'd join these forums to learn more. Here are my initial questions:

1. Currently I have an inside room (K - I believe this is the room code) on the Caribe deck (10). My coworker who has been on a number of cruises suggested at least looking into a balcony room. The total cost added on would be $780 and I am trying to justify the cost. Two days are at sea, the rest are at port. Obviously it would be real nice to have this type of room, but what would people suggest for a first timer? Should I go with the inside room and experience it that way the first time, or go all out with the exterior room?

2. From my reading, this ship (or rather the Emerald as not enough info on Ruby is available) does not have the best room service, rather the food menu is limited, the breakfast only includes cereal and yogurt, no hot foods, etc. Is this true?

3. What deck do they embarck/disembarck from when in port?

4. Where are the noisy parts of the ship (rather, what deck/section of deck is best for quieter rooms)?

5. How smooth is the ride in the Carribean? Are the waves choppier, or is it not too bad?

6. Has anyone gone on the Mayan Ruins excursion when docked in Cozumel? My girlfriend and I really want to do this one and would like to know what people thought of it.

7. At any of the ports I am stopping at, anyone suggest any good excursions, or would we be better just exploring the area on our own?

More questions to come, this should suffice for now.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome! Cruise experiences are very subjective. But, I can give you our perspective.

We love the balcony staterooms. But, only you can rationalize the cost increase. You can always compromise and get an ocean view stateroom.
The Caribe deck has category KK cabins, which is far forward or aft. So if you are prone to motion sickness, bring meds or try to get a cabin mid-ship.


2. From my reading, this ship (or rather the Emerald as not enough info on Ruby is available) does not have the best room service, rather the food menu is limited, the breakfast only includes cereal and yogurt, no hot foods, etc. Is this true?

Yes, the breakfast room service was limited. But, I love coffee in the a.m. in the room to rev me up for the day!
3. What deck do they embarck/disembarck from when in port?

4. Where are the noisy parts of the ship (rather, what deck/section of deck is best for quieter rooms)?
We usually choose a cabin that has no public spaces above or below us, and we like being far forward or far aft so there isn't as much foot traffic past the room. But, others enjoy being close to the action....so like I said, personal preference.
5. How smooth is the ride in the Carribean? Are the waves choppier, or is it not too bad?
Caribbean isn't too bad. But, there's always the chance for rough water, and people have different levels of acceptance with rolling.
6. Has anyone gone on the Mayan Ruins excursion when docked in Cozumel? My girlfriend and I really want to do this one and would like to know what people thought of it.

7. At any of the ports I am stopping at, anyone suggest any good excursions, or would we be better just exploring the area on our own?
I'd suggest doing a shore excursion on Jamaica. We didn't enjoy our walk from the pier to a shopping center in Ocho Rios. Wouldn't do that again. Other folks rave about Jamaica...we just didn't have a good experiece. But, I'm giving it another try for 5 nights at a resort hotel. Grand Caymen-loved swimming with the stingrays, the Turtle Farm was interesting and they've since expanded, Tortuga Rum Factory store has yummy rum cakes.
Cozumel-had fun on a 4x4 adventure, did a cooking excursion with beach time at one of the resort areas
Princess Cays-A nice beach day on the island of Eluthera. Water activities (snorkeling, etc.) for fee. Last trip we stay on the ship to enjoy the serenity on the Emerald.

More questions to come, this should suffice for now.

Thanks in advance!
Hope I've helped a bit.

wow, that's a whole lotta questions welcome to the cruise life!

1. do yourself a favor and get the balcony, especially if you're travelling with your girlfriend. you're going to LOVE the sunsets & sunrises with the privacy and comfort of your own private space - well worth the money if you can afford it. it will take your breath away and will be something special you guys will remember for the rest of your lives

3. embarkation depends on the port. sometimes it will be deck 4,5 or 6

4. deck 10 is a very good deck for peace and quiet. decks 6&7 forward have theatre traffic, deck 5,6&7 are veru busy due to the location of the art gallery, casino, laundry rooms, restaurants and the atrium among other things..these decks are the hub of entertainment. deck 14 has the pool area and buffet. the best decks (in my opinion) are, 9, 10&11. why not 12? because the pool area is above that floor (there is no 13). deck 8 is above all the action on deck 7

cheers

Thanks for all the info so far, it all is a great help. I feel a lot better about deck 10, espcially when it comes to noise level. Still need to think about the balcony idea.

I would like to hear more about the Stingray excursion as many people who "have not" done it have told me I have to do it. I want to do it, but my girlfriend is a little leniant about doing it (she is afraid of getting stung by them which I am trying to reassure her that she wont).

Any more advice other people have would be much appreciated!

I've been doing some looking into for the balcony on the Ruby (Emerald). I am 100% sure I want my room to be on either deck 10 or 11 (currently booked in KK on 10). I noticed on 10 there are 2 (BB) rooms on the very back of the ship in the corners, and on 11 the entire back is BB rooms.

Are back of the boat balconies nice? I looked at my cruise path and the majority of the path the back of the ship would get the sunrises/sunsets, whereas the sides of the ship would receive the minimal sunrise/sets.

I'm thinking if I got a balcony I would want one on the back...any opinions on this or experiences?

Welcome to cruisemates. I'm booked on the inaugural of the Ruby on Nov.8.
This week I had the opportunity to change my inside Cat-K on the Emerald deck all the way to the Lido deck, through a TA that advertises here on cruisemates. So I cancelled my reservation at Princess, for which I paid Usd 1027.06 for 1 passenger to Usd 1371.12 for 2 plus 125 OBC.

I always take inside cabins, because they are good value for money and I'm never in my cabin, just to sleep and shower. And the darker the better for me to sleep. So I would suggest you, since it will be your first cruise, just go ahead with your inside, and if you don't like you can always change to an oceanview or balcony in the future.

Your asking some good questions, I would stay with a inside cabin.
It's all about$$$.
If you can arrange your own air, you will be better off. I have been directed through snow belt airports on several trips including being booked on air that leaves Fort Lauderdale at 5 pm at night.
It sucks to hang around all day when your on vacation.
Suggestion. Book your own air and make sure you book the flights that have at least 1 hour between connections.
The Ruby Princess has a 24 hour Buffet and the food in alot better then in the past. Buy one soda card when you board ship, a sticker is placed on your card. some people take water bottles and fill them with White rum or Vodka and use the soda cards to mix drinks in public areas.
The club soda's are (0 calaries).

There are self serve laundry rooms with irons onboard, great set up, Most airlines have a 50 lbs limit on first bag, so packing light is important.
I go on cruises in Fort Lauderdale all the time. E-mail me for great tips at danielraessner@yahoo.com
I'll be on the Ruby on 1/17/2009 and the Crown on 1/25/2009.

Pick up a 3-litre bottle of wine = (4-750 ml bottles) at Total Wine 1906 Cordova Road (954) 828-9463, The cruise line has a corkage charge for dining rooms $15 per bottle. Note, No booze is sold until noon on Sundays in Florida.
Use the trolly service @ $3 for all day pass and takes you to shopping centers and beaches. www.broward.org/bct rider info (954) 357-8400
Los Olas is the cool place to party, trolly runs until 1:30 am on Sat.
Rental cars are taxed heavy and hotel parking can cost up to $20 per night.
Taxi to and from airport and Port Everglades is only $14 AS OF LAST 12/2007.
Let me know if you want more tips.

Danny

Your travel agent should have told you the any person that has sailed Princess could have listed you and your wife/girlfriend and everybody receives a $25 discount. second, If you have a Costco card, Costco Travel has better pricing then Princess by far, You may want to get a Price and try booking at lower pricing after receiving your referral ID code and Captains Circle Number. If your inclined, e-mail me at danielraessner@yahoo.com.
It FREE and you get $50 off your cabin with any travel agent.

I have done a good amount of research, but thought I'd join these forums to learn more. Here are my initial questions:

Obviously it would be real nice to have this type of room, but what would people suggest for a first timer? Should I go with the inside room and experience it that way the first time, or go all out with the exterior room?

You can always turn on your TV and switch the channel to the outside cam on deck. That's the window I use.

2. From my reading, this ship (or rather the Emerald as not enough info on Ruby is available) does not have the best room service, rather the food menu is limited, the breakfast only includes cereal and yogurt, no hot foods, etc. Is this true?

Food is not a problem on board.

3. What deck do they embarck/disembarck from when in port?

At Port Everglades deck 6, carry your luggage onboard. Otherwise you may have to wait until 5 pm befor you see it again. The porters at the dock are well known to remove averything thats not locked. they are not employees of Princess.

4. Where are the noisy parts of the ship (rather, what deck/section of deck is best for quieter rooms)?

The center of action are the entertainment decks, this means that the hall ways in the center get heavy traffic. you can hear everybody talking at 2 am when there cruising back to there cabins.

5. How smooth is the ride in the Carribean? Are the waves choppier, or is it not too bad?

Wind is the big issue, Hurricane season is over at the end of November. Storms pass and dump heavy rain, then it's beautiful. most storms last under an hour, kinda cool. At least everybody clears the pool deck (LIDO), so you can get a lounge.
The center of the ship at deck 6 (plaza) has positive atrabutes. Less traffic because fewer cabins and the traffic is going up at night. the entertainment decks are 6 (Fiesta) & 7 ( Promenade) 95% all passengers go up.

6. Has anyone gone on the Mayan Ruins excursion when docked in Cozumel? My girlfriend and I really want to do this one and would like to know what people thought of it.

The Mayan Ruins are wonderful, read about the Mayan History befor you go, If you scuba dive. Cozumel is the highlight is the protected reefs.
If you plan on buying Cubin Cigars, take bands from cigars here to switch out, it's a customs thing.

7. At any of the ports I am stopping at, anyone suggest any good excursions, or would we be better just exploring the area on our own?

When your in the Caribbean, snorkel everywhere. You can pick-up snorkel equipment at Walmart or Costco for around $30 per person.
The rental at Princess Cays is around $18 per set at one port.
I suggest exploring the locations on Google Earth, you can see all the reefs via web-site. Grand Cayman is the most expensive of all the Ports.
A burger and beer will cost $12 at seven mile beach plus cab fare. very crowed and over priced for me. Stingray City is the same.

More questions to come, this should suffice for now.

Thanks in advance!

Just for your info.... the Ruby will be going out on July 5th so that some of the Sea trials can be carried out on the Engines and other functions like Stability. The latest pics i have of her show the work going well.

hatty324: Our first cruise was in a balcony. We were so uninformed that we spent a bloody fortune for that room! But we absolutely loved it!!! We have cruised several more times in balconies and at the time, couldn't imagine even trying an inside. Then some major changes in our income caused us to rethink how we cruised. We have the choice of cruising inside cabins once a year, or balcony once every couple of years. Well, since we love cruising so much, we figure any cabin is fine as long as we get to cruise. That's almost true. Once we were next to a space that the crew uses to set up their carts for the day. It was very noisy. Now we scrutinize the deck plans before selecting one.

If you can afford the balcony, go for it. If you have it, you'll probably use it. If you'd rather spend your money elsewhere, take the inside. Either way, you can have a great vacation!

Please be sure to post when you return and let us know how you like the Ruby. We just booked it for December 2009. It will be nice to be back on Princess again!

balconies are addicitive, so if you can manage without one, or if you like to stay up late to party and then sleep late, the inside cabins are supposed to be very, very dark.

you'll be able to cruise more times before you start doing balconies.

The stingrays have all had their barbs removed.

Cozumel is our favorite place to snorkel.

You'll never go hungry on a cruise ship.

Don't worry about the limited room service menu, really it's just limited when compared to the restaurant, not when compared to a moderate hotel.
