Princess Cruises Adds Another Ship to Fleet

Princess Cruises is set to bolster its fleet yet again with the addition of Ruby Princess in November 2008. The sister ship to recently launched Crown Princess and Emerald Princess will operate a seven-day western Caribbean program through April 29 from Fort Lauderdale, featuring calls at Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Princess' private beach, Princess Cays in the Bahamas. Ruby Princess will feature many of the same amenities as its sister ships, including a piazza-style atrium and the ships' signature restaurants, Sabatini's Italian Trattoria and Crown Grill.
