Ship Facts: Grand Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Grand Princess Deck Plans
30 Day Round the Horn of South America
Embarkation in Buenos Aires was very smooth, in part since few joined the cruise in BA. This is the third time we have sailed on the Grand.

Ship: The general condition in good. The outdoor pool needs to be redone. The small 1 inch tiles are coming off and the only way to correct would be a total refinish. Some rust on above our balcony. For its age the ship was in good shape.

Shows: Most limited to 30 minutes which is down from a few years ago when they were 45 minutes. We attended most of the shows, productions shows were good, some of the individual acts good others not so good.

Scholarship at Sea: Very good program. We have newer attended many of these but did on this cruise. We were very pleased with the programs and the speakers.

Food: For dinner we are traditional dining. Food was very good. The fish which I had almost every night was prepared better than I have ever had on a cruise. Generally overdone on past cruises but not on this cruise, excellent. We try to have lunch and breakfast on sea days in the dining room. All meals were very good. Those times we ate at the buffet, the food was very good but not a lot of variety, day in and day out at breakfast.

Ships employees, wait staff,our cabin steward met all expectations. Friendly, helpful, even the buffet wait staff asked if we wanted coffee or juice in the mornings.

We missed a couple of ports as the weather was questionable, the Falklands and Nicaraqua

Debarqcation was very quick as much of the customs was done on the ship not at the pier.

Overall we were very happy with this cruise.
