We are Platinum members who decided to take our third Princess cruise this year, this being on the Grand Princess voyage A232, Cabin A508, 14 day cruise for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. We received several emails telling us how beautiful the Grand Princess was after their refurbishment. Needless to say, we did not find the same, but instead have had more problems than on any other Princess ...

My husband & I took a taxi and arrived earlier than our check in time at Southampton and our luggage was taken from us by the porters there. After a short wait having priority boarding we were called to the embarkation desk for passport checking and then security. We then boarded the ship and were able to go straight to our cabin where our luggage was already waiting. We were on deck 14 a balcony ...

Grand Princess 11/3-17/2012 Transatlantic Crossing Pre-cruise. We had planned on leaving from JFK on Tuesday October 30th on American Airlines 142, a daytime flight to London Heathrow. With the impending arrival of Hurricane Sandy into the New York area around that time, we considered alternative flights leaving earlier. American Airlines did not open no-fee rebooking until Friday Oct 26th when ...

First of all, we did enjoy our cruise, especially the time spent in ports. However, of all the cruises we have taken this was the one that needs the most improvement. Embarkation: We took the Princess transfer from Victoria Coach Station. Our information said to get there between 11am - 11:30am with the coach leaving at noon. When we arrived at 11am it was already extremely crowded and we ended ...

More of a tattered Princess than a Grand Princess

Joined ship in Southampton. This was our first trip with any Princess ship. Experienced long delays mainly at security prior to boarding. We had a balcony cabin on Aloha Deck. We found the accommodation cramped in comparison to Cunard ships which we have travelled on prior to this cruise. Storage space was at a premium. We found the electrical outlets unsuitable for use if using more than ...

We have never been on cruise in which we've had a bad time. Cost & value is always a consideration for us and we rarely pay for any optional services or meals onboard. We treat the ship as a floating hotel and book based mainly on itinerary. While we had a good time, comparison to last years cruise always came up for us. When reading reviews I realize they are opinions and to decipher how they ...

This was our second Transatlantic Cruise and our first one was in 2006 on the Golden...the sister ship to the Grand. The Grand was supposed to have had a major overhaul around the first of 2011 and from what we saw it certainly wasn't on our floor. We booked a balcony cabin as we always do and this was the SMALLEST balcony cabin I've ever seen....I've been in inside cabins that had as much or more ...

These are some supplementary comments to the thorough review which another passenger has already been posted. MAINTENANCE We have sailed on the Grand several times: before the makeover, immediately following the drydock (the infamous May transatlantic), and now 6 mos. following the drydock. While the problems out of drydock have thankfully been resolved, routine maintenance issues remain. ...
