Today, not only am I sharing this delightful and stunning Nojito drink, my favorite drink aboard the Ruby, but I am also sharing one of the highlights while on the 7-Day Mexican Riviera Princess Cruise. I can’t wait to share the rest of my experiences while aboard the cruise; don’t worry, I will be sharing some tips, too. But I honestly couldn’t wait to share this drink. I had at least two a day, and my favorite part of the ship was The Sanctuary.

It wasn’t until later that afternoon that I tried the Nojito and swooned over this drink the entire rest of the week. I love how fruity it was. I was happy to see that the Ruby had some many fun drink to choose from, even those that didn’t have alcohold, great for kids and adults.

Princess Cruise drinking tip! Make sure to check out all the drink packages available. There is a variety to choose from, and buying a package will save you money.

The Nojito Mocktail had grapefruit in it. The mint was still the star, but I personally love the addition of the grapefruit. When I recreated the recipes, I made sure to include it along with lemon and lime.

How to make a nojito mocktail

  • Chop mint leaves.
  • Cut all the fruit into quarters.
  • In a pitcher, squeeze in grapefruit, lemon, and lime juice. Add ice, sugar, and mint leaves.
  • Top with grapefruit and lime slices.
  • Serve with a sprig of mint on top. Enjoy!

The mint adds a touch of sweetness, that balances the tartness of the drink.

Now let me return to the best part of this post, The Sanctuary. Princess Cruise Lines promotes the Sanctuary as “An Ocean of Calm on Princess Ships,” and that it was. Secluded, calm, quiet, and peaceful, The Sanctuary offered many elements to let their guests get swept away. The Sanctuary was not only a haven for our group but several others as well, so be sure to make your reservation for a spot so that you have someplace to go, lay down, and relax. Spots are filled quickly, so be sure to do this after you get settled.

Not only were you pampered in the Sanctuary but they hosted a Tea every afternoon. I loved the little treats that they served. I may have eaten my share or enough for 5, I really can’t remember (wink, wink).

Besides teatime and refreshing drinks, they had lighter and healthier versions of some of my favorite appetizers and snacks. The one I ordered every time was the Creamy Salsa Dip, and luckily for you, my friend Sandy from Reluctant Entertainer already has the recipe on her blog. Be sure to go and check it out. Pictured below was what it looked like on the cruise.

Now, having 5 young kids myself, I love that the Ruby Princess was incredibly kid and family-friendly. But if you want a place free from noise, crowds, or just every cruise business, The Sanctuary is your refuge. From providing guests with one-of-a-kind service from a chilled face towel and Evian water atomizers (amazingly refreshing), food, and drinks. You could even get massages!  The Sanctuary will be a part of every Princess Cruise line experience I have in the future because I loved it that much.

Enjoy this Ruby Princess Nojito {Mocktail} -a fruity-mint mocktail that is delightfully refreshing.
