I have taken the Ruby Princess repositioning cruise from Venice to Ft. Lauderdale in Oct 2010. It was a great cruise, the weather perfect , the shore excursions wonderful.
Do not know which ship you will be on in April but you should have a wonderful time.
Princess Lines have great Staff and all are friendly and helpful. Just returned on Jan 15th. from another cruise on the Ruby Princess and enjoyed it again. The only complaint is that the shows in the show room were the same....just not as many on the shorter cruise. You should have a great time.
