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 ...

This was our 56th cruise on Princess, and 13th on the Grand. Overall it was a very good cruise although it started with an "issue." Embarkation This was the second of our b2b sailings this time on the Grand so ...

Embarkation: We travelled up to Southampton the night before & stayed in the Highfield House Hotel, a basic but, pleasant place for an overnight stop. On arrival at the docks we dropped our luggage, drove to the short stay car park where we were met by Edward from Looking4Parking (booked through Cruise Co.uk): he took the keys & we set off for the very short walk to the check in desks. After a ...

We were on the Grand last year in 2010 on a Med cruise, and again on this post dry dock trip. This cruise was different in that the majority of the fellow passengers were much older clientele and many had mbility issues. It was end of June, so not all schools were closed here in the UK. This did not affect us, but was disappointing for out 18 and 17 year old boys, as there were very few of ...

Although we booked this cruise very late, we had an aft balcony cabin on the Baha deck, and loved the location - across from the laundry and after the last set of elevators. We enjoyed mostly beautiful weather, mostly calm seas, and wonderful blue skies. We did miss one port - Katakalon (for Olympia, Greece) because of thunderstorms and large waves. But, in a port-intensive cruise as this, ...

Our arrival into Rome was flawless and our B&B had arranged transportation from the airport. As we exited the baggage area the driver was there waiting and our trip was uneventful except for the Rome traffic. The B&B we chose was located close to the Vatican and our hostess met us at the door and helped us get settled. Our accommodations were excellent but small. Breakfast was served daily in ...

This review covers 4 b2b cruises on the Grand - including a 14 day Southampton to Rome, a 12 day Rome to Venice, a 12 day Venice to Rome, and lastly a 12 day Rome to Rome that included Egypt and Istanbul. In all we spent 50 consecutive days on the Grand, in the same cabin. It was indeed a trip of a lifetime. We both fully retired the end of August so it was our version of a world cruise to ...

Grand Princess Eastern Med Oct 17th-Oct 28h First a couple notes. I will try not to repeat what has been said before in prior reviews and concentrate on only those things that have not been mentioned or are new. My wife and I are reasonably seasoned travellers and don't tend to take many excursions, preferring to do many ports on our own. For this reason, most of the notes on ports of call ...
