Grand Princess, grand time!

Sail Date: May 23, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

We took the Princess shuttle from Seattle airport to Vancouver cruise terminal. The bus ride was approx 4 hours Canadian customs was a breeze. The U. S customs in Vancouver was long and tiresome but we made it through. 

We settled into our obstructed ocean view room on the Emerald deck. The nice part was you could look over the top of the life boat and the view was not bad at all. 

We found the Grand Princess to be in pretty good shape over all. Some wear and tear here and there, but nothing to bad. We were fortunate enough to have great weather throughout the cruise.

The food in the MDR was good, the Crown Grill was fantastic, from the food to the service.
