Some great, some not-so-great!

Room Type: Oceanview

My family, new friends and great food added to a great cruise.  Unfortunately, the Grand Princess is looking "tired" appearance, in entertainment selection and in general lack of efficiency in the selection of venues for events. (For example, the piazza at the foot of the grand staircase, is a very poor choice for a popular event the entire ship may be interested in observing!...Scary!...I understand "an obstructed view" is just that, but there should be some rule that SOME light should be able to be seen through the window!   E624 is NOT a room you is dark, dark, dark!  No sky or no water can be viewed AT ALL!!!     It should really be classified as an interior room!   Convenience of San Francisco for us is flights needed!!!

Just walking about the town is easy and enjoyable, provided the weather cooperates!
