Hi - we're thinking of taking the Grand Princess out of Galveston December 2006 but before we make that final decision, can anyone please give us your thoughts, suggestions or complaints about the Grand Princess?

Laine,

Have not been on the Grand yet. Will be in July.
Not heard anything negative thought.
I'll keep you posted.

Cathy

My wife and I cruised the Grand Princess round the Carribbean 18 months ago. The ship is absolutely huge, which was a concern of ours, but it's so big that you never feel overcrowded. In summary:
Good things:
- size: lots of seats, variety of pools/spa, lots of activities
- personal choice dining was excellent
- food was excellent
- crew very personable and pleasant
- service excellent in restaurants
- nightly shows excellent

Not so good:
- food in Horizon Court cafe rarely hot, but this goes for most buffet style food
- drinks expensive
- bit too keen on trying to take your photograph at every occasion. We got fed up of this after a few days.
- ship showing it's age a little and loking a bit "tired" in some areas
- small gym area for such a large ship/so many people (but hey, who uses the gym whilst on holiday!)

To be honest, the gripes are minor and overall I would rate our experience 8 out of 10. A fantastic first cruise for us and we don't regret for one minute the choice we made. Hope you have a similarly fab time Laine.
