Grand Princess Buffet Food Was Just Awful

This was our 7th cruise; 2 on Norwegian and 5 on Princess. We primarily eat at the buffets do to the variety, speed and informal dress codes; so my comments apply primarily to the Horizon Buffet. The food ...

Much better than last time

This Grand Princess cruise was better than the last time we were on it 2 years ago. The main difference was that the food was much better and the staff wasn't bickering. There was a new head chef and the menu had ...

Great itinerary, Tired Crew, Grumpy Guests-Still a Good Time

While I enjoyed this cruise and while I'd be willing to take Princess a second time, I would probably prefer a different line based on this sailing. Note: This was one of the last sailings of the Grand Princess ...
