Disappointing: Grand Princess Cruise Review by The Cruise Maniac
Overall Member Rating
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
The biggest disappointment was our stop in Fortaleza Brazil where we visited a flea market in a former prison. We left after 20 minutes and heard later that the only reason we stopped here was because they could obtain cheaper fuel ( not confirmed). Also heard that a couple we robbed but this was also not confirmed. I should note that it More cost us over $350 for Brazilian visas which we had to obtain even if we had no plans to leave the ship. We renewed our vows on the ship in celebration of our 40th and this was a great experience since the captain was able to officiate.
It was very relaxing but not up to our expectation and hopefully future cruises on Princess will once again raise the bar. Less
Cabin review: SuiB751
We were upgraded from a mini-suite (in the middle of the ship) to a suite in the back of the ship so who could complain.
