15 years ago we sailed on the Golden Princess and were wowed! Beautiful ship, excellent service, excellent food. Last week we sailed on the Grand Princess and found it less than grand. The ship is boring looking compared to the other 17 average at best. Embarkation & disembarkation was excellent, as was dining room service, but very few options for vegetarians (1 main dish selection) and ship really needs a remodel (tile grout missing, lines for every women's bathroom), toilets out of service).
