Grand Princess Overview

Launched in 1998, the Grand Princess is a Grand Class cruise ship in the Princess fleet. This beautiful vessel spent some time in the dry dock in 2011, where it received a major upgrade, including the addition of the Piazza and several new bars and restaurants. She shares many similarities with her sister ships, Star Princess and Golden Princess.
