Sail Date: March 10, 2007
Ship: Grand Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

Review SummaryThe Grand Princess is a beautiful boat! She looks almost new, and everything was spotless. Our outside stateroom fit four of us (two adults, a teen and a child), but barely. When our second child grows a bit we'll need to move into two rooms. The boat's showrooms - the Princess Lounge and the Vista Lounge - are both beautiful; very spacious. We didn't eat at any of the speciality restaurants because we figured the food inside the dining room was so nice there was no need to spend more. We originally wanted to be on the "early seating" for dinner, but it was filled up by the time we asked, so we were "anytime" dining. It actually worked out better for us. We got to eat dinner at 6:30 every night, and we met another family who sat at our table several times during the week. One caveat - make reservations every morning for that night's dining if you have "anytime" dining, otherwise you won't get seated right away.
Ports Of Call
Pros: The boat was beautiful
Cons: The way the ship's staff handled the Belize shore excursion
