Princess Cruises Grand Princess Western Caribbean January 29, 2005

This is our forth cruise, third with Princess. The first time on Grand. It is a good ship very smooth, nicely appointed and cabins were of normal size. We enjoyed personal chioce dining and never had to wait for a table, there were some nights that a line formed as we were leaving, so what time you go to dinner makes a difference. You can make reservations. We enjoyed the movies under the stars.

The pizza is great and food in the Horizon Court Buffet was good. My wife and I thought the shows were well done and entertaining. I wanted to write a little about the stops. Costa Maya we got off the ship and tried to take a taxi, we had to take a shuttle at $3 per person to Mahahual. Here we hire a boat to take us fishing it cost us $100 for two hours for two of us(they wanted $200 but can down), we caught a barracudda, jack and dorral(dolphin), we then had lunch on the beach and a massage on the beach and sat around the rest of the time reading(great day). Next stop Belize, We had booked a cave tour on the internet because the ships tour was full. We had a great experience with Gilly our guide, the outfiter Yhony was at the cost was $55 per person but it was just my wife and myself on the tour, the price drops to $45 if you have a group. Third stop was Grand Caymens, we booked a trip to singray city and snorkeling with SOTO cruises cost was $30 per person and enjoyed the trip, great crew and can recommend them highly. Last day was Cozemel we took a cab to Chankanaab, wondered around there and snorkeled, it is a nice park with everything you need located there. Overall a very good week cruising.
