Grand Princess~Western Caribbean~Anyone Recently Cruised
I am new to these boards so I hope I am posting this correctly...have been on other cruise sites though so hopefully the same. Anyone recently been on Grand Princess? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I'm new to this message thing too. I went on my first cruise and we did the gr. Princess. I loved it. I have no complaints. We were able to go to Princess Cays too. I believe it was all repaired from the hur. damage. I had a blast. Good luck to you. I'd go again next week if I could.
we were on the grand about 4 years ago, so its been awhile. But we loved it. The crew was the best of the three Princess ships we've sailed on. The Grand was what convinced us to try Princess two more times. I think you'll like the ship.
This is my first Post here. We have cruised on the Carribean Princess and the Star Princess. We did the Western Carribean on the Star last year, we enjoyed it so much we are doing the Western Carribean on the Grand in April. Ziplining through the Rainforest Canopy in Ochos Rios was the highlight of our trip, I am trying to come up with something as cool to make this trip. The Ships are similar, we enjoyed dancing at the deck parties and soaking up the sun(and the Margaritas).
We were on the Grand last March and had a great time. I normally write up my cruises for my web site at mycruiseadventures dot com, but have been too busy to get around to it...maybe soon.
The ship was the largest we had been on...so large I kept getting lost - I remembered which deck something was on but kept confusing forward and aft.
The big disco above the stern was a great place to hang out when going in and out of ports - it has the best view on the ship. We never did get around to playing miniature golf, but we certainly enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. The food was excellent, and I always enjoy Princess' art auctions.
If this is your first cruise, my advice is to always take the stairs - that way you can eat what you want and never gain a pound...
