Ruby Princess - Movies Under the Stars
Tour of the Ruby Princess Swimming Pools, Sanctuary, and Outdoor Youth Center
The outdoor common areas of the Ruby Princess are as welcoming as those indoors. There are two large swimming pools on the Lido Deck--Neptune's Pool and the Calypso Pool. The 300 square foot, 69,000-watt "Movies Under the Stars" screen overlooks the Calypso Pool. Programs and movies are shown throughout the day on the large screen, so those seeking a much more peaceful outdoor area might want to sit by Neptune's Pool or pay the extra fee ($10 for a half-day) and sit in The Sanctuary, which adjoins the Lotus Spa.
One of the best spots outdoors is aft on the Lido Deck. The Outrigger Bar and Horizon Deck offer great views of the Terrace Pool and the wake of the ship.
Kids on the Ruby Princess can enjoy their own outdoor area aft of the Youth Center on the Sports Deck.

Ruby Princess Sanctuary
The quiet Sanctuary offers a relaxing alternative to the many outdoor activities and entertainment available elsewhere on the Ruby Princess.
Solitude seekers on the Ruby Princess will love this plush, outdoor spa-inspired setting with its own signature beverages, light meals, massages, attentive service and relaxing personal entertainment.
Serenity Stewards are on hand to provide Ruby Princess passengers in the Sanctuary with everything from a chilled face towel and Evian water atomizers, to a menu of healthy beverages and fare. Serenity Stewards will also have personal MP3 players with noise canceling headphones available for rent, loaded with themed playlists focused on relaxation.
The Ruby Princess Sanctuary also features outdoor private cabanas where guests can take advantage of the exclusive Lotus Spa Services at The Sanctuary, including favorites such as a Deep Tissue Muscle Massage, a relaxing Swedish Massage or a Full Body Lotus Massage especially for couples. Shorter interludes of massage pampering will also be available as massage therapists will offer back, shoulder, and neck massages using special massage chairs.
When not indulging in spa services, Sanctuary guests lounge amidst lush greenery, with the presence of gentle breezes, ocean waves, and softly piped-in spa music combining to further insulate the area with relaxation sounds. Guests relax on plush outdoor furniture including double loungers for couples, as well as deluxe chaise lounges and chairs.
And for those looking for a relaxing end to their day, sunset yoga sessions offer the opportunity to unwind and tone their muscles accompanied by nature's beauty.
Ruby Princess Sanctuary guests can refresh with a variety of special drinks and snacks created exclusively for The Sanctuary. Each day Serenity Stewards will be on hand to offer guests an array of drinks and snacks. Signature Sanctuary beverages include healthy smoothies, energy drinks, iced flavored waters and freshly made lemonade. A menu featuring a selection of light bites such as refreshing fruit skewers and lettuce wrapped spring rolls will also be available through the Serenity Stewards.
Unfortunately, there is a small fee for all of this pampering and relaxation -- a flat fee charge of $10 per person for each period. A period is defined as AM (from 8am to 12:30pm) and PM (from 1pm to 5pm or later).
