Overview

First launched in 1998, the 2,600-passenger Grand Princess underwent a renovation in December 2016 to include newly remodeled restaurants, youth clubs and a new Movies Under the Stars poolside screen. Other onboard amenities include the adults-only Sanctuary, duty-free boutiques and educational programs through the Discovery of SEA program.

The ship houses a total of 12 dining venues, including three main dining rooms, four specialty venues and a variety of casual eateries serving classics like burgers and pizza. Come nightfall, passengers can enjoy musicals in the theater and cocktails in their pick of lounges.

The recently refurbished accommodations are outfitted with amenities like flat-screen TVs and minifridges. Though only 76 percent of exterior cabins offer private balconies – a lower percentage than other ships in the fleet – guests describe cabins as comfortable and spacious. Plus, thanks to a nearly 2-to-1 guest-to-crew ratio (the ship features 1,150 crew members), past cruisers describe the onboard service as attentive and friendly. 

In 2018-19, Grand Princess departs from San Francisco and Los Angeles for sailings in Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico
