Holidaymakers looking to unwind in stress-free surroundings may wish to consider taking a cruise onboard the Ruby Princess
According to travel writer Craig Mcdonald, of Glasgow's Daily Record, the newest ship in the Princess Cruises'
fleet is the "last word in innovative luxury" and has something for everyone.
"There's also a sports centre, spa, hot tubs and four swimming pools - including one with a wave machine which tests your strength as you swim against the current," he commented.
Paying for meals and entertainment in advance can also make cruising an appealing option.
"The beauty is that, by the time you step onboard, virtually everything is paid for," he added.
Ruby Princess was launched late last year in a glittering ceremony featuring US TV stars Trista and Ryan Suter.
The luxury liner is home to a striking piazza-style atrium and boasts 900 staterooms with balconies.
