Grand Princess - Good and Bad
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
In my experience in cruising with Celebrity I learned that that line tends to cater (on average) to the 65+ crowd mostly due to price, but the ships, crew, and guests are generally fabulous. I had hoped that Princess, being kind of in the middle of the road on price, would cater somewhat to a younger crowd especially with the active itenary we had...but I was wrong. I personally do not have any interest in doing the hokey pokey and/or chicken dance anymore which is where the evening dances on deck always seemed to go. It was difficult to find anyone to talk to or make friends with onboard due to the age differences and the entitlement driven attitudes of the older crowd we were cruising with. I understand that we are still young at the age of thirty, but we are no longer crazy spring breakers out getting trashed and starting trouble constantly... and no our parents didn't buy our tickets either.
With all of that being said, my boyfriend and I are incredibly close and thankfully do not require outside stimulation to be entertained... We made our own fun, and had a blast! I do want to say that this is more of an informational post than a complaint driven post, but we will still be booking Royal Caribbean instead of Princess next time.
