Welcome to Cruise Mates. Would love to join you but can't. We did the same cruise a few years back and met a few of your countrymen along the way. You might want to check out he Meet On Board section at the bottom of these forums (fora?) Also I think Princess supports some sort of Facebook groups for their voyages, there is a link through My Princess.

We are 61 yr. old couple from Florida and also going on the Ruby Princess Aug. 28, 2013. We booked only one shore excursion in Katacolon. The ships shore excursions are very expensive. We think we will explore most of the ports on our own, except Naples. We may want to get together with other couples to take a small group tour. Any ideas for Naples? We have been checking tour reviews, etc.
