Grand Princess Cruise Review by capequeen
- Sail Date: December 2012
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Although the food was very good, the choices were very limited and the same foods served over and over with very few variations. The crew, although very efficient, did not come across as friendly and welcoming, and that was the biggest surprise and disappointment of all...i have been on more than 30 cruise and no matter what else, always found the crew to be so much fun and so warm and good natured...not so here...way too many grumpy faces and cold demeanor! Our cabin steward and one waiter (on the last evening)were our only really positive encounters, and that was amazing to us!
On the positive side, the activities were plentiful and fun, and our cabin was lovely. The excursions at the ports were very well done, and off ship we had a very nice time. Nightly entertainment was only mediocre as were the Casino games. All in all, I don't think we would choose Princess again.

Princess CaysPlenty of water toys to enjoy...went kayaking, swam, used a "clamshell" to stay out of he sun all day. My husband went surf fishing and enjoyed himself too. The Cruise line prepared a wonderful barbeque lunch...an awesome day!View All 396 Princess Cays Cruise Port Reviews

St. John Snorkel/SailLots of fun, light lunch and good entertainment. Plenty of time to snorkel and swim and enjoy the beautiful waters of Turtle Cove. Unfortunately, I had a mishap and fell rather hard on the platform going onto the beach shuttle and hurt my left knee rather badly.View All 143 St. John Snorkel/Sail Reviews
