The Ruby Princess has several excellent dining options. I love the idea of the attention paid to romance on the Ruby Princess ship, with many meals and delicacies like the dessert pictured above designed for romance.

On our seven-night eastern Caribbean cruise, we tried most of the Ruby Princess dining venues. The ship has three main dining rooms; two are used for Anytime dining at dinner, and the third is used for traditional, two-seating-times dinner.

Princess offers two optional dining options that will be among the most memorable you will ever experience. The first specialty meal on Princess ships are the Chef's Table. This meal starts with canapes and champagne in the galley, followed by an amazing meal accompanied by select wines, and ending with an elaborate dessert. For those looking for romance, an "ultimate balcony dinner" or breakfast is a real treat. The wait staff delivers each course to your balcony, the setting is romantic, and the food is exceptional.

In addition to these special meals, the Ruby Princess has many familiar dining venues. My favorite is Sabatini's specialty restaurant, with its Italian theme, but many cruisers rank the Crown Grill as their top choice. Both are excellent, but have a small fee.

Those looking for a casual meal can eat in the Cafe Caribe or Horizon Court buffets, enjoy pizza from the pizzeria, or dine by the pool at the Trident Grill.

As you can see, there's no chance of hunger on the Ruby Princess! Let's look next at the different types of staterooms and suites on the Ruby Princess.
