Ruby Princess, the fourth jewel in the Princess Cruises crown, launched in winter 2008.
Princess Cruises' Ruby Princess weighs in at 116,000 tonnes, and her passenger capacity tipped to be over 3,000. Nearly 900 of her spacious staterooms boast balconies - just perfect for admiring those beautiful Caribbean views.
The stunning sister ship of Emerald Princess remains the newest ship in the growing fleet and keeps to the incredible standards set throughout the fleet. Take in Broadway-style shows in the evening, or relax on deck in the Caribbean heat, while enjoying Movies Under The Stars.
In January 2019 passengers of the Ruby Princess will benefit from innovative onboard technology known as Ocean Medallions; a service that has a great number of possible uses that guests will find helpful.
As with all Princess Cruises ships, you can choose from traditional fixed dining or 'anytime dining' when you book your holiday - meaning you can dine to your taste. With fantastic speciality restaurants onboard, the choice is superb.
Why not pop into the Sterling Steakhouse one night for filet mignon or lobster, or head to the romantic, yet vibrant, Sabitini's Italian Trattoria? During the day pop into the International Cafe in the atrium, or enjoy the superb views from Horizon court.

The Ruby Princess dress code offers you both informal, relaxed evenings and the popular, but less frequant, formal nights. Formal nights are often the highlight of the week with gentlemen donning black tie, and ladies slipping into their favourite elegant dresses. Informal nights onboard have a smart/casual dress code, with sport jackets and blazers expected for gents.
For the quiet evenings, if you don't fancy dressing for dinner, or you are tired after a day of shore excursions or spa treatments, you can head to the buffet restaurant, where casual attire is suitable, if not expected.
