Ruby Princess is a Grand-class cruise ship owned and operated by Princess Cruises. She was built in 2008 by Fincantieri in Trieste, Italy. She is a sister ship to Crown Princess and Emerald Princess. Ruby Princess was turned over to Carnival Corporation and Princess Cruises in late October 2008. She was officially named at Fort Lauderdale, Florida on November 6, 2008 by Trista and Ryan Sutter.

Design

Ruby Princess continued the modified Grand Class design with the Skywalkers Night Club moved just aft of the funnel, rather than suspended over the stern like the original designs. This modified design was first seen on the Diamond Princess/Sapphire Princess twin ships.

Ruby Princess was the first to debut a new program called the Ultimate Ship Tour, where guests are given a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run the ship. Weight-wise she was the largest ship in the Princess fleet before the arrival of the new Royal Princess.
