Ruby Princess – sister ship to the Azura and Ventura

Ruby Princess is possibly the ship that the adventure, very romantic novel

A serial killer on ship in the Pacific days from land? – Millions of dollars smuggled on and off ship, then goes missing? – An agoraphobic woman who has never had a relationship decides to cruise before its too late? – Great books that happen on board cruise ships, that make excellent reading while cruising – click here for our cruise novels page.

The Ruby Princess is a familiar ship to many cruisers. It is an excellent size, large enough to get the best entertainment, but not huge. She is a modified Grand Class design with the Skywalkers Night Club moved just aft of the funnel, rather than suspended over the stern, a modification first seen on the Diamond Princess Sapphire Princess twin ships. For the English guests there is the Wheelhouse Bar (pub) with English-inspired lunches. In January 2016 Celebrity chef and New York writer, Curtis Stone teamed up with Princess Cruises for his first restaurant-at-sea. ‘Share’ replaced the signature Italian Sabatini’s and is at the moment only found on the Emerald Princess and here. The ship will be familiar to P&O cruisers, but with the Princess styling.
