For those who are interested, the ship review my wife and I wrote relating to our March 25 cruise on the Ocean Princess is now posted under Ship Reviews. Your comments are welcome and if we did not answer any specifics just let us know and we will see if we can help. Enjoy!
Just finished reading your "Ocean" review and it was wonderful, glad to hear you will be doing more cruises in your future. I too want to give Celebrity a try very soon, but first another RCCL cruise on Explorer soon and the Golden Princess.
Glad you enjoyed Ocean, Princess really does do a nice job.
Michael .... great review!! Thanks for such detail. I will now know to ask for the terry robes and we'll use your other hints as well, they were excellent. I remember how nice the robes were when we sailed the Grand last year. Do they still charge extra for ice cream? This practice just didn't seem up to the "Grand Class" experience. Oh well if they do that won't stop us from enjoying the Ocean. Can't wait... only 12 more days...
Yes they still charge for ice cream other than at dinner of course. The other pet peave was charging for soft drinks and bottled water. I would rather they just add another $30 to the cruise cost and not charge for such small items. After all, how can they stuff us with lobster tails and prime rib and then nick us for Cokes and bottled water? Have a great cruise and I am glad you found the hints helpful. When you get back please let me know your comparison between the Grand and the Ocean. Have a great time.
