Grand Princess Cruise Review by garytheref

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: Hawaii
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview (obstructed view)

We wanted to experience Hawaii. There were 10 in our group. 8 are high school friends celebrating our 60th birthdays. I found the ship was old and the chairs in the lounges were outdated and uncomfortable. The food at dinner needed more selection throughout the cruise. It seemed the same food was on the menu every 2 todays. Not much choice for desserts also. There needed to be more poolside entertainment. Evident that this cruise is catered to an older crowd. the cruise director and his staff were excellent in the shows and trivia type events they hosted. We only purchased 1 ship excursion that was well done and exciting. The other days we found our own excursions off ship. Our dinning wait staff did a great job. We had no problems with the staff service - only with the condition of the ship. This was our second trip with Princess and both were poor experiences with the conditions.

Probably stay with our past cruise lines in the future.
