There's a Cabin-Type for Everyone

The Ruby Princess is the 17th cruise ship in the Princess Cruises' fleet. The ship and its staterooms are almost identical to those on the Emerald Princess and the Crown Princess

The Ruby Princess has five basic different types of cabins. The staterooms range in size from 160 square feet to 687 square feet, and all include twin beds that can be converted into a queen, refrigerator, television, closet, and bathroom with shower (mini-suites and suites have a tub/shower combination).

As you move up in price and size, the amenities increase. Although the oceanview cabins are about the same size and configuration as the interior cabins, they have a window. Adding a balcony gives you private space outdoors and a desk. The mini-suites are larger than the balcony cabins, with two TVs, a separate sitting area with a sofa bed, and desk. The suites are definitely luxurious and include breakfast in Sabatini's, which is a real treat.

A balcony cabin on the Ruby Princess features two twin beds that can be put together into a queen-size bed. Other amenities include a refrigerator, television, spacious closet, desk, and bathroom with shower. The Ruby Princess balcony (veranda) cabins are approximately 233 to 285 square feet, including balcony.
