Time to retire this ship

Sail Date: November 19, 2014

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We enjoyed our trip on the Grand Princess very much and the shortcomings of the Grand Princess were offset by the great service we received and the excellent food on the ship. Although the ship is one of the oldest in the Princess fleet we did not have any serious concerns with our safety and our health on the ship. The fact that some of the elevators did not function properly and the timing of these elevators were not in sync were more of a nuisance than a serious problem. We were also disappointed that the training pool was not functional during the entire trip and we were told that it was not working for a long time and would not be repaired in the short term. Leaving the ship was a total disaster mainly due to immigration and custom problems. Waiting in line for hours to get into the country is not acceptable especially when immigration officials treated non-american passengers differently.

Excellent food and service
Service and Staff
our waiters at table 177 were excellent and should be commended for the effort they both made. English was excellent, great sense of humour and pleasant to be around.

Discuss tipping procedures with staff from the outset.
