Sailing the Grand Princess

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Just getting back from a 14 day back to back Cruise on the Grand Princess. My husband and I have been cruising for about 9 years now and find it an amazing and relaxing experience. We don't expect much so we are never disappointed at anything that happens. Even though it rained this time in Aruba we still enjoyed our day. We went to a Museum which is one of the things we like to do. We have done a lot of the tours provided and fine the History to be very interesting. Didn't get to do any tours on Curacao because we didn't get off soon enough but still managed to cease the day. The day back in for the turn around was odd, but it seems to me that people just have to find something to complain about. It rains so the excursions were canceled so it was a little crazy. The second week we did do some shopping in St Maartens, then in St Thomas we did a tour with family who had not been their before. Also did a little shopping there. At the private Island the last day it was breezy More but I did get to take a few pics of the crabs off the pier.

The food was very good and got to go to the English Pubs a couple of times. Also the food in the dinning room was very good. I love the friendliness of the waiters. I'm very much appreciate all the attention we get and do not take it for granted. These people went out of their way to do what every we wish. I just wish some of the cruisers I talked to felt the same way. I guess I live such a simple life that I really felt pampered. So I guess in conclusion it was a wonderful time again and as long and God keeps us healthy we will keep on Cruising. Thank you Princess for another wonderful time aboard your vessel. Less
