Experience for first time cruise with Grand Princess
Review SummaryI loved the cruise, especially Glacier Bay. The whole cruise was marred by my dining experience. Since we can't eat in dining rooms until after 8pm we missed the shows we really wanted to attend. The food in Horizon sucks. Meats are overcooked and selections are poor. I had to eat breakfast and lunch in Horizon since i was assigned anytime dinning even though I requested 1st seating. I was shooed away by the MaitreD of Boticelli and Da Vinci because I was assigned anytime dinning. This was not my first cruise but the first with Princess line. I was never treated as a second class diner on my other cruises. Anytime dinning means I choose the time to eat but not only after 8pm and definitely not qualified to have sit down breakfast and lunch. I do not enjoy buffet dinning at all.

Insist on set dining schedule. Anytime dining means you eat last and not allowed in dining rooms until after 8pm
