I would rate the cruise as average when compared to other cruise lines we have been on. When comparing with other cruises It is probably easier to identifying the negatives rather than the positives. Embarkation and debarkation was ... Read more

Princess Grand is declining in the quality of cruise experience, care about the ecology and they pursue the policy of getting as much money out of passengers as possible. We picked this cruise as we dont need to fly since it is round ... Read more

My wife's 60th BD loomed large in our planning and we always wanted to go to the Panama Canal so this was a great way to combine the two. On top of that, she was and still is a New Year's Baby so just any old First Night party would not ... Read more

This cruise was reasonably priced and full of good activities. The staff was efficient and friendly. The ports were interesting, even though we had visited them multiple times. Our stateroom was small and had a slightly musty smell, and ... Read more

We really expected the cruise to be a tad more festive, than it was. Having said that, the ship was decorated lovely and most of the staff wore Xmas Hats, but Xmas Day was a let down. We would have liked the lunch to be a full on Xmas type ... Read more

The only bad part of the cruise is the embarkation and disembarkation. The ramp getting on and off the ship in Long Beach, California seems like its a mile long. However, at the port of call it was only 5 or 10 feet. I could write a ... Read more

1. Twenty three days were enough to gauge the skills of the Crew of the Diamond Princess - some shone and some only just glittered, some just faded. The first "port of call" for most passengers on a Cruise liner is the ... Read more

We chose this as a last minute Christmas cruise. As always we were impressed with the Hotel Staff. We were very fortunate with the weather, given the disastrous previous cruise, but that is the luck of the draw. We chose the Diamond ... Read more

Loved this cruise and the people we met on Cruise Critic beforehand. The ship service was excellent and we had heaps of shore days. Christmas decorations were tops but sadly Christmas dinner was not our traditional fare....still all in ... Read more

Loved the three days at sea. The Regal Princess is a huge ship so we always found a place to sun tan or to sit for breakfast or lunch at the buffets. We did notice that our wine tasting event did not give us their shooter glasses as they ... Read more
