Princess Cruises Grand Princess by Bill Frederick Western Caribbean March 3, 2002

Hello all,

It's been a couple of weeks since our cruise and I felt it was time to write about my experience aboard the Grand. She is a Grand ship. We were very pleased with our stateroom, which was an inside cabin. The food was always god and plenty of it no matter what time of day or night is was. My wife and I pre-ordered a bottle of rum and vodka for or room and it saved us a lot of $$. The prices of the drinks are somewhat high and if you drink, you have no choice but to buy, well sign you life away.

We do have a major complaint with this ship. Our stateroom was near the rear of the ship and the Baja deck. Whenever the ship was out of port it jerked from side to side. I questioned members of the cruise staff and have also written Princess, we are still waiting for a response. If it was only us that felt it I would understand but every person we spoke to around out cabin had the same complaint. If you experienced the same please send me an email. I would like to know there are others and possible find out what the cause was. When we were waiting to get off the ship in Ft. Lauderdale we noticed Princess loading a very large metal object that appeared to be like an engine part of propeller shaft.

The ports we visited were ok. WE enjoyed Princess Cayes the best. It could be because it was our first stop. I suggest diving and snorkeling wherever you can.
