Ship Facts: Grand Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Grand Princess Deck Plans
Grand Princess - Eastern Med
Our Best Cruise so far, 4th with Princess.Two couples, mid-fifties, celebrating our 30th wedding anniversaries, and friend Paula's birthday. Grand Princess clean, staff great, can see signs of ship's age.Prefer Princess over other lines for demographics, service, value.Cabin steward, Tsvetomir was great, as was waitstaff Victoria and Benny in Da Vinci anytime dining. Wish Princess would standardize anytime dining reservation rules, seems to vary ship to ship.This review is more about the ports and experiences than the ship.

Best advice I can give: go on the roll call for your ship and cruise date, share tours with others. Not only will you get better tours but you'll meet some wonderful like-minded travelers.

Day 1-Shared ride from Rome to Civitavecchia with fellow roll call members, Stefano from Romecabs was prompt, courteous and graciously stopped at a store so we could stock up on wine.Ride was 70 euros per couple, 3 couples.Could have taken train, but we were glad not to haul our luggage around after doing so for the previous week from Florence to Rome. After muster drill had one of two roll call parties,someone counted over 70 people. What a great group, made many new friends, hope to cruise again with some.Shared private tours or did our own at all of the ports. More personalized, smaller groups and great savings.
