Ruby Princess (Princess Cruises)


Ruby Princess is the third and final of the Crown-class ships by Princess Cruises, she is a modification of the original Grand-class design. An extra deck was added and the Movies Under The Stars entertainment venue before she launched.

She primarily sails currently from her homeport of Fort Lauderdale, USA – performing round-trips to the Caribbean and Bahamas. In the Summer she home-ports in Europe for cruise around the Mediterranean.


Ruby Princess was the first to debut a new program called the Ultimate Ship Tour, where guests are given a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run the ship!
