Anyone fancy a Ruby?

There are all sorts of romantic festivities planned to mark the launch of Princess Cruises’ newest ship in Fort Lauderdale tomorrow.
The Ruby Princess will be named by American reality TV lovebirds Trista and Ryan Sutter, who are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary.
Another couple will be married on board, and the bride will be given away by Gavin MacLeod, the actor who played Captain Merrill Stubing in the TV series Love Boat during the ‘70s and ‘80s.
A ruby red tie gala kicks off a two-day cruise for invited guests and celebrities, and on Friday there will be a mass renewal of vows ceremony.
It all sounds a bit sickly sweet for my taste. I wonder if they’ll have a Ruby Murray on the dinner menu? There would be if it was a P & O ship.
Also in port in Fort Lauderdale is the spectacular-looking Celebrity Solstice, which will have its own naming ceremony and celebration next week. More on that later.
