As my former post stated we just returned from a 7 day on the Princess Grand and now are hooked. We are looking at a 10 day for Feb 2005 and it would be on the Princess Dawn. Does anyone one have first hand comaprision of both. I know that the Dawn is smaller, and we would be looking at an inside vs the balcony that we had this time. Are all the ameneties the same ie: personal choice, entertainment opps, etc..... We really enjoyed the Grands offerings but there is no ship that large doing the 10 day.
Any help is appreciated. Oh, does anyone have any suggestions on inside cabins on the Dawn? I have been told that the rear tends to be rougher, and the cabins by the whited out areas on the layout is where the staff stores their carts and is loud in the morning???
we have sailed both classes of ships and they are fairly similar, The Dawn class ships are just smaller with less people. She is still a big ship but with a small ship feel. On a personal note - i think that you will not be happy going from a balcony to an inside stateroom, having done both the insides seem very tiny and claustrophobic to me. If you need to downgrade go to an outside stateroom with a window.
