Ruby Princess enters service

In a "ruby red" themed ceremony celebrating romance, Princess Cruises recently named its newest ship, Ruby Princess....



America's reigning reality couple, Trista and Ryan Sutter of The Bachelorette did the honors, breaking the traditional bottle of champagne to mark the ship's launch, and their own fifth anniversary. The new godparents were surrounded by hundreds of guests decked out in ruby red-tie formal attire, and a ruby-haired singer serenaded the crowd.

During her inaugural season, the 116,000 gross ton and 3,080-passenger Ruby Princess will make 7-night sailings from Port Everglades to the Western Caribbean. Calls include Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Cozumel, Mexico and Princess Cays in the Bahamas. Next spring the ship will move to Europe for 12-night sailings in the Mediterranean and Greek Islands.
