I will be going on the Grand Princess cruise on the 26th of Jan and will be my first cruise. I have hit all of the boards and have a good grip on everything but I need some help on the Shore activates. Any help?

I will be going with my girlfriend and we are both in our mid to late 20's. I am very active but she prefers to sit on the beach. We are also looking for other people who will be on the ship as well to socialize with and help out the "first timers". Thank you all for the GREAT info posted!

What route are you sailing? I'm sure I could go to Princess' website and look it up myswlf, but, nah.

Grand Princess is a marvelous ship, my wife and I sailed on her last February for our honeymoon. We did the Western Caribbean route (Princess Cays, Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel). I'm not sure if they've changed the stops or not.

I'm not sure how many 20-somethings you'll encounter, however. We realized that Princess seems to appeal to a somewhat older crowd than 20's or 30's. We saw only a small number of people our own age. The ship itself seems geared this way: everything on board is more elegant than exciting.

Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad thing at all. It's just not a party ship. Sure, there are plenty of bars and the food is superb, but it's not going to be a rock-and-roll-all-night (and party every day!) kind of vacation.

Think more in terms of an upscale resort, or one of the high-end hotels in Las Vegas (Mirage, Venetian, etc.). You will NOT be disappointed, however. She's a beautiful ship and the service and quality of everything is top-notch.

Your travel agent should have given you a shore excursion booklet showing the various tours. We go through that, figure what we want to see, and then book online. Not sure you can still do at this late date, but we love doing it this way. Have not missed an excursion yet that we wanted.
