Overall I will not travel with Princess or at least with the Grand Princess again maybe a newer boat but I was super disappointed with my experience with them. This is my 6+ cruise and will do any of the other lines before thinking of princess.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

Dining, where to start the main dining room food was so-so, must of the time not good at all. The buffet was pretty much always the same thing and not good either.

Crown Grill

Food and service were awesome, to the point I made another reservation after the first dinner there.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Hate that is not stairs in the middle of the boat, making very hard to wait for elevators if you were close to the middle of the ship. Super run down and had rust in a lot of places.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
The cabin is too small even though I book a balcony # 522 and my friend and inside cabin #507 was way bigger I have been in other cruise lines and the cabins are bigger and better decorated than this. The bathroom super small.

Ship Tip

Don't go on this ship.
