Grand Princess

November 2013 - Grand Princess to Hawaii

Excellent Value, but Short of Perfection

Very choppy weather created a downtime experience for many of the sea-sick passengers (and crew) for at least one day, and large swells prevented the stop we hoped to get at Mauii. It's a lot of time at sea, so if you lust for land, this isn't your cruise. Otherwise, the passengers were kept well occupied. The food is good, not great, and tends to read better on the menu than it actually tastes. Still, I had a very good time (even though my travel companion and I were both sick for a day, and even though we missed a stop in Mauii. The crew was very courteous, and the activities are plentiful.

Mizzbe's Tips

Valparaiso (Santiago), Chile - Very colorful city with more dogs than residents (the strays are well fed and friendly, but you need to watch your step). There's a very fine "Free Tour" (check TripAdvisor.com)
Ushuaia, Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina - I elected not to go on the steeply priced excursions to see penguins and seals, as we have seals in San Francisco. Those who went said it was a long, cold outing.
Punta Del Este, Uruguay - Looks like most upscale beach resorts. There's a casino for gamblers, a famous statue, and not a whole lot to see except for nice beaches.
Puerto Montt, Chile - Go beyond the port and get a taxi that holds about four people to take you to all four of the main sights for about $25 - $30 each.
Punta Arenas, Chile - A one-day town that closes mid-day for siesta. Go in early if you want to see it.
Cruise Cape Horn - Much anticipation, but without rough seas, it's just another damp boat ride with bragging rights.
Rhapsody of the Seas Rhapsody of the Seas - If you want a quiet shipboard experience, try the solarium and the deck chairs beyond it.
Grand Princess Grand Princess - The breakfast buffet is very substantial. Keep your choices simple and you won't be disappointed.
