Great time on the Grand Princess

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Mom and daughter - ages 67/42 in a mini suite on deck 8. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn and parked at the pier.

We arrived at 12:30 and were not on the ship until close to 3:00. It was absolutely chaotic as a last minute location change had really caused a lot of issues. This was definitely the worst part of the cruise.

Our suite was great, not crazy about our steward on a personal level, very aggressive somehow, but he kept our room very clean and well stocked.

The food was excellent all around. We ate in the dining room / Buffet / Sabatini's and had room service.

Sea days were good - lots to do and service was excellent. We watched a movie under the stars, went to some lectures, trivia, saw the nightly shows, played bingo and slot machines in the casino.

The tours we went on were good - make sure to bring hats, sunscreen and water. When we were there it was 46 degrees celsius with the humidity.

Embarkation went More pretty well - a bit disorganized - we did the walk off, and customs was a breeze. Less

We booked the adults only cabana which was great - quiet with a great meal and drink service. We were very glad to have booked the adults only as the family side seemed pretty chaotic and was overrun with bees. The swimming beach is pretty rocky.
