Review Summary

The 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.

Beautiful little island, nice people - we loved this island.
Don't Miss: Visit Marble Hill Farms - they make hibiscus jelly, of all things. Very quaint place.

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel is one big shopping mall, in my opinion.
Don't Miss: We took a horse-drawn carriage through the city, and that was more interesting than walking the main strip.

Belize City, Belize

The ship-to-shore transfer was a bad experience - we sat in the boat's lounge for over an hour as they offloaded passengers one group at a time. Once you get into Belize City, it's poverty-stricken. We wouldn't return.

Pros: The boat was beautiful

Cons: The way the ship's staff handled the Belize shore excursion
