My husband & I took our 1st cruise on the Grand Princess 2/11/01. We had a marvelous time. Every thing from embarkment to disembarkment went as smooth as a cake. This cruise line is so well organized that it's unbelievable. Our first 2 nights at sea were a little rough. The captain later on the second night said he was going to take us the long way around the Florida straights as we were hitting Trade Winds. Sure enough he did, and it was beautiful.
Didn't even feel like we were on a ship. This ship is like a city on water. Our stateroom A707 on the Aloha Deck was perfect. We were near everything. Our balcony was great. Our room steward Joshua was great. What else can I say, but please for a cruise of your life you have to cruise on the "Grand Princess".
