The 'Not So' Grand Princess: Grand Princess Cruise Review by Marrow
Overall Member Rating
The 'Not So' Grand Princess
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Once aboard we were even more disillusioned to find the ship looking more than a little 'tired'. And on deck, yes, there was a place to escape the noise - for a hefty daily fee. Excuse me, but why should we pay for peace and quiet at sea! And this was not the only 'hidden extra' we were expected to pay. This has never arisen in any other cruise we've ever taken.
Neither have we ever been subjected to such low level entertainment. Although one or two entertainment acts were good, onboard amusement was mostly of the holiday camp variety, using mediochre talent.
However, the food was More excellent and the three ports of call interesting. It was a shame we couldn't dock at Oslo, due to a Norwegian dock strike. Hence two full days at sea on the 'Not So' Grand Princess. We counted the hours to Southampton! Less
Cabin review: outP206
It was called a 'State room'. but was just an ordinary cabin; nothing special and looking 'tired' like all the rest of the ship.
