Just got back from the Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Grand Princess and wanted to let everyone know that Princess Cays island stop was not included on this trip due to the hurricane damage. Instead, we went to San Juan, PR which was not really a good substitute since we arrived in port at 4:00 p.m and only stayed until 11:00 p.m. that same night. Since we only wanted to see the old fort (el Moreo), which would have been closed by the time that we could have gotten there, that was a bit of a disappointment.
However, everything else on the cruise was excellent and I can't really think of other complaints, except the entertainment was recycled throughout the week, which we have not seen done to such an extent on past Princess Cruises. Maybe it was just because it was Christmas week and some of the regular entertainers took time off to be with their families.
Other than that it was the best cruise that I have ever been on. Excellent food, excellent service, perfect weather and excellent passengers to talk to and share experiences with. The other islands that we stopped at were great.
