45 trips with Princess, and the food was not as good as any of our previous cruises. The last show was very good, but the rest were old and older. Met an officer and we talked about the cruise and told him of our thoughts about the food. He said the home office had cut costs for food to a level where the ship could not buy as much as they wanted. I told him we were on the Caribbean Princess in Jan.and that ship was super. He said there had been a problem two years ago, and the company had 4 new production shows on that ship as well as the largest food expense per person in the fleet, trying to bring the ship up to a proper level in the public eye.The Grand needs work! The main show-room had a problem. The center section (where we sat) had water landing on the seats from above. They said they knew about it but nothing seemed to change. As usual, the crew was always very friendly and helpful and we even recognized some of the crew from previous cruises. We both did a lot of reading and enjoyed meeting and talking to a lot of interesting and knowledgeable people from many walks of life. The wait staff did the best they could under the circumstances, but believe it or not, we both lost weight on this cruise!! So much for the food! Since we have taken this cruise several times we only did one shore excursion and had a wonderful day in in Maui. We have always felt that Princess gives the passenger the best value for the buck and we will use them again but we do not intend to go cruising on the Grand Princess any time soon. Read Less

Hawaii round trip from S.F. a Ideal itinerary. Food in dining rooms have become Nothing to brag about. A surprise to us from a Princess product. Horizon court has a good selection, Drinks are now offered in Smaller Glasses instead of a regular glass. Why ? Guess they want you to order more and keep the dish washer busy. Service in the Horizon lacks as employees seem to have a attitude. Ship does show its wear and age, surprised after the dry dock it was in weeks before we sailed. Must be more important to upgrade the medallion system and newer TV's , rather than older worn furniture, water pipes and overall the skeleton of the ship. Major problem in room as the Toilet did not flush and slow response to rectify the situation, after an hour I called front desk and asked for an estimated arrival of maintenance personal, as well as notifying them that it sounds as if water is running down the interior of the walls. Wife was going to use facilities elsewhere when she saw Water poring down the Elevator door, maintenance was busy everywhere. Note elevator were taken out of service (caused a bottleneck of people trying to go up or down). Electrical systems were effected and floors on effected elevators need replacement now. Entertainment on board was nothing to brag about, mostly ships dancers and band. Magician was the best venue. The "Come Back New" motto was definitely not part of this cruise. Is it all about cost cutting ? Maybe so, But losing loyal customers may be the end result. Read Less

Amazing, amazing trip. Everything, except for casino, was beyond and above expectations. Casino needs more variety on slots. I loved the robes (waffle), and would love to purchase one for my husband for Father’s Day. Please help ... Read More
Amazing, amazing trip. Everything, except for casino, was beyond and above expectations. Casino needs more variety on slots. I loved the robes (waffle), and would love to purchase one for my husband for Father’s Day. Please help with this. The food was ok, but need more variety. Lots of curry in the food. This is not a good choice for all people. Os e of the shipboard staff, such as line dancer teachers were rude and not very helpful as teachers. I enjoyed all the shows that we saw, but he singers were not very good in any of the shows. I do have to say that anything we asked for was supplied right away as far as our room accommodations went. Roberto was an excellent steward. The ship itself, left a lot to be desired as far as luxury went..so much wear and tear showing all over the ship. Very disappointing. Very disappointing. The name, Grand Princess, does not fit this ship. Entirely to much for gratuities....... Read Less
