Grand Princess

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. Having undergone a dramatic re-fit in spring 2019, the charm of this elegant ship has been enhanced by the addition of many of Princess' popular, signature venues and new additions such as Slice Pizzeria and The Mix bar.

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.

However you choose to spend your time onboard, it’s guaranteed to be a memorable cruising experience.

Customer reviews for Grand Princess

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.
