7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 03, 2011
Ship: Grand Princess
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Although the ship was just updated (April) there were many things in non working order. The AC in our room didn't get fixed until several days into the cruise and a software glitch on one engine caused us to miss a port. The food was also very poor - both poor selection and poor quality.

The ship is not easy to get around. Many blind hallways and no stairs in central elevator bank (had to walk to one end of the ship or the other).

Great mini suite.

Pros: Itinerary

Recommends Grand Princess? No.
