Onboard the Grand Princess there is a fantastic selection of dining options. With traditional set dining times and Anytime Dining both available in the beautiful main dining rooms, you have the choice to enjoy your evening meals the way you want. Enjoy the incredible cuisine onboard from the venue of your choice.
The entertainment onboard Grand Princess is second to none. From Broadway-style shows to chef demonstrations, there is something for everyone. The Wheelhouse offers live music most nights, while Crooners is a great place to grab a Martini and marvel at the flair of the expert bartenders. In addition, before your cruise is over, don't forget Princess Cruises signature Movies Under the Stars up on deck, where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a great variety of films in the fresh air.Other venues:
The Grand Princess boasts the full-service Lotus Spa & beauty salon offering traditional hairdressing, beauty services, massages, sensuous wraps, hydro and aromatherapies. There is also a state of the art fitness centre with professional staff, weight and aerobic conditioning equipment, sauna and solarium. There’s no excuse to not leave your stress and worries behind you during your holiday.
As well as all the cruise entertainment onboard, there are plenty of activities too, from Princess Links, the nine hole putting course, to the golf simulator and basketball courts. For those looking for something more relaxing there is an art gallery and library, or for a spot of duty-free shopping, why not head to the boutiques? For families onboard there is also a great selection of entertainment in the kids club and teens centre.
The Grand Princess boasts a combination of casual and formal evenings, offering you a smart casual atmosphere one night followed by a grand evening the next. If after a long day of shore excursions, you don't fancy dressing for dinner then the buffet restaurant always offers a casual dress code and is open 24/7.
Although one of the older and smaller ships in the Princess fleet, the Grand still provides the usual high standards associated with Princess Cruises.
An excellent holiday enhanced by the arrangements by IGLO. In particular the meet and greet at the airport and transport to the hotel and ship.
Hawaii Christmas and New year.This was our 4th cruise with Princess, our first on Grand Princess. The standard of service from the staff was up to its usual excellent quality. Grand Princess is however looking and feeling rather tired in many areas. There was a greater level of rust visible around many of the outdoor areas. We had a mini suite D620. It is a lovely sized room with a very comfortable bed, and I highly recommend the upgrade from a balcony room. There were a few tiles which had lifted below the toilet and the patio door onto the balcony was almost impossible to open it was so stiff; the handle was hanging off. That was however eventually resolved but left the door draughty. The sofa had what appeared to be a small burn mark and the interior furniture was chipped in places. This may sound rather negative but is simply factual and in no way detracted from us having a great cruise holiday with Princess. We did notice an increase in the bar prices (not helped by the strength of the dollar of course compared to GBP) and felt that the dress code in the formal dining areas was far more casual than our previous experiences, tracksuit trousers or jeans being common place.
The room was very small and the ship needs some TLC I noticed quite a few leaks throughout. The quarantine procedure they have in place is ridiculous as they still allow you to stay with your family and only restrict the ill person from going out so the family could still be spreading the germs it doesn’t make sense!! My child was not allowed in any of the pools as he is only 18 months old and not yet potty trained we had swimming diapers but he was still not allowed I thought that was very unfair! also it was our honeymoon so wanted to spend some family time together and were only allowed one parent to supervise at a time in the tree house (childs play area) so one of us was left by ourselves for a few hours a day! I thought that was unfair too! the drinks packages are not worth doing a total ripoff! On the other hand the staff in the tree house and dining rooms were very helpful and pleasant and a few of the bar staff were also lovely. The beds were really comfortable and the food was good so it wasn’t a all bad.
