Sorry for the longish review but hopefully some info will help decisions of future cruisers onboard Grand Princess. We have just returned last weekend from our Western Med cruise. Our party consisted of 17 of us who travelled as a family for our son's wedding which took place on September 23rd .Ages ranged from our sons one year old baby to my wife's parents who are sprightly Octogenarians. 7 of the group were complete newbie's and the rest all either Princess Platinum or Elite members. The cruise was very enjoyable and all had a good time, however there were disappointments.

The disappointments may seem trivial to Newbie's but they effected us more as this was a large group which as said included newbie members all of whom we had raved to regarding all of the facilities and experiences that they would have onboard. As regular cruisers with Princess the disappointments were particularly noticeable. It seems that the cruise lines now cater more for new passengers who will not notice the many aspects being chipped away from the products on offer.

As will be appreciated with this being a wedding cruise planned over a large period there were lots of pre cruise meetings and discussions on what would be experienced.
