The Grand Princess is one of Princess Cruises finest ships. The first of the Grand class ships, she was one of the largest and most innovative ships at sea in 1998.

In spring 2011 she is headed to drydock, where she undertook one of the most dramatic re-fits ever seen by Princess. The UK based ship then returned to Southampton for the summer season where she showed off new features such as the Piazza Atrium and Alfredo's Pizzeria. The huge re-fit included the removal of the iconic Skywalker's night club from deck 18, to streamlining the ship, with the new One5 nightclub opening on deck 15.

This elegant ship only enhanced her charm and popularity with the addition of many of Princess' popular, signature venues and cruise line first, such as Leaves — the new, unique, tea room where you can custom blend a variety of teas.

Princess Cruises offer superb standards onboard and as the American-style sister company of P&O Cruises they are a popular choice for British cruisers. The elegant Grand Princess boasts fantastic entertainment from Broadway-style shows to comedy nights and perfectly balances stylish, informal evenings with stunning black tie occasions.

What our customers say

Dear Iglu, we had a wonderful holiday to the Baltic on the Eclipse departing in August. All of the departments at Iglu, pre-booking, post-booking, accounts, tours and upgrades were extremely helpful to us and we will definitely recommend to friends and will use you again when we next want to book a cruise. I would mention Mike, Mic, Violetta, Emma, Janice and Carol who were all very nice people to talk with and who all helped us in different ways. The advice to book our tour in St Petersburg with Tour de Force was the best tour we could have had.

Best Regards
E & J. Hamilton
(September 2014)
