October 2015 - 15 Night Hawaii (San Francisco Roundtrip) Cruise on Grand Princess
the ship is old and lacking in facilities and services. Very disappointed in the difficulty nightly trying to get a table to eat (anytime dining never worked). The casino is a waste of time. You can never win (typical cruise ship) and there are not many choices for slot machines unless you don't mind the thick smoke in more than half of the casino that makes it unbearable for any non-smokers. The fitness area and steam and sauna were a major disappointment. Steam and saunas are in a public area and yet segregated. Makes no sense at all! If you go to work out, then go to the locker room, you must change into other clothes to use steam or sauna (in public), and shower in public. What is wrong with the way other cruise ships are set up? I hated this whole set-up. Also, the fitness room has 7 foot ceilings, so don't try to lift a weight or get on an elliptical machine if you are over 6 feet tall! Also, it took several days to get used to our micro stateroom with bunkbeds overhead where you bump your head everytime you get out of bed or kick furniture because there is no room to walk.
