    Boarding the Ruby Princess

    November 5, 2013 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    We arrived at the airport in Rome about 7:00 AM local time after boarding in Charlotte, and changing airplanes at JFK Airport in New York. Because we could not board the ship, the Ruby Princess, at Civitavecchia, until noon, we had an extended bus tour of the city of Rome. We passed the Baths of Caracalla, and the Colosseum. We passed Vatican City, though we did not go in through the gates. I think Princess was just stalling until they could get our staterooms ready. Then we had to drive north to Civitavehcchia, where our ship was docked. It took quite a while. Even so, at around 4:00 pm our rooms were ready and we boarded the ship with no problems. The Ruby Princess is a lovely vessel, somewhat larger than the Coral Princess, on which we sailed through Alaska. At dinner Glenda and I were the only ones at a table for eight.Read more
