The ship was typical Princess: if you have cruised on one you can find your way around with no trouble. It was very clean and the crew was very friendly and helpful.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We saw a huge improvement in the food quality this trip. We last cruised two years ago and commented that the food quality had declined. They have corrected this and the food was very good again. I particularly noticed more healthy options in the buffett: lots of salads\, veggies and fruit. Dinner selections in the dining room were varied and quite good.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
We don't cruise for the entertainment: we cruise for the ports of call. What we saw available didn't impress us enough to attend. They did a British Invasion musical show that was ok.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The one problem that eveyone noticed was that the women's public restroom on Promenade deck near the Photo displays had a very bad chemical smell that never improved. We stopped using it after the third day.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Typical stateroom. Nothing special\, but fine for its purpose.

Pros: Copenhagen\, Brussels and Oslo were very interesting cities

Cons: Some of the shore excursions were timed too tightly..little time to explore the port on our own.

Recommends Grand Princess? Yes!
