  3. Grand Princess

my first cruise was on the grand princess in 2009 since then I have cruised six times mostly with royal Caribbean.

the grand had under gone a make over since my first cruise it was ok but not spectacular

the main thing that stuck out was the lack of hygiene,

on rci you cannot move for handwash stations and staff encouraging you to wash your hands, when boarding the ship and entering food area which is no bad thing as the norovirus is the last thing you want on a cruise

the food varied from excellent to good to quite poor, overall it was good but compared to rci not as good nor was the selection, breakfast became a bit boring

the entertainment was a bit patchy to be honest compared to rci, I have no other lines to compare to, the entertainment was not as good

the pub meal at lunch time was excellent and princess ought to make more of this

I have to say that I did thoroughly enjoy the cruise but it was not perfect but then I didn't pay a perfect price

first port was cadiz a lovely place

Cabin Review

Cabin

we were in a disabled cabin not that we are disabled or asked for a disabled cabin, lots of room, 2 to 3 times as much more but it was a bit tired and needed some attention and updating
