Our first cruise was on the Sky Princess. We thought she was from heaven she was so beautiful. Princess thought otherwise and sold her immediately thereafter.
I hope you can appreciate that our critique was on a comparative bases, things that had changed since we were last aboard. "Now in our day..." may sums it up.
As you board her you will love her no less so than we did when we first sailed her. She's not what she once was but then who or what is. Enjoy your Grand Princess cruise and best wishes to you both
