Question
Interesting Dave, as long as this new venue is not intended to upsell or push other money making areas of the ship it should be a added plus for Princess.

This is no interest to us. We do not go on a cruise to look at a TV studio. Its a waste of space and money. They will most likely charge to use it. Just another money making place.

The whole ship seems to be dedicated towards up-selling the extras which we always avoid. Even the price to board the ship is outrageous & we'll be waiting till it drops to something a lot more reasonable before considering boarding.

We would love to sail on this new ship, but can't. Its only a 7 day cruise and it goes the same route ports and route everytime. We will not sail on a cruise under 10 days anymore as 7 days s not long enough. We have done back to back, but there is no point for this as its the same 3 ports. I have written to Princess about this. They say the majority of people only want 7 days.

Even worse is dedicating the Ruby to do 4 & 5 day trips over & over. It appears that they're more interested in getting the newbies started cruising than catering to the old timers that look for longer voyages. I can't possibly understand anyone paying transportation costs to the ship for just a 4 day trip. Even when we first started cruising I would never have though of just 4 days. It doesn't fit any vacation schedule.

We totally agree. All they want right now is for passengers to come on and see the new ship, plus they want people to stay on the ship and spend money. We love both the ship and ports, so our cruises we want enough port to get off and look at.

Could someone tell me if Royal Princess is only doing 7 night Caribbean cruises in 2013 and if so can you book a back to back or does the itenary not alternate?

Royal Princess spends most of 2013 doing Mediterranean cruises, and comes to Ft Lauderdale in October for one 5 night cruise and then a series of identical 7 night eastern Caribbean runs from November 3, 2013, to April 27, 2014. Royal Princess schedule

Cheers Dave, so I am right in thinking if you wanted 2 weeks on Royal Princess you would visit the same islands twice?
