Grand Princess Cruise Ship
True to her name, the Grand Princess Cruise ship is certainly impressive. At 951 feet, the cruise ship Grand Princess is among the largest cruise ships found on the seas and is equipped with staterooms to sleep 2,600 passengers gracefully. In addition to comfortable accommodations, Grand Princess Cruises' guests are offered a variety of activities at their reach at any given moment.
The Grand Princess features a variety of restaurants and bars as well as swimming pools, wide promenades for afternoon strolls, a fitness center, a teen center--even a wedding chapel. Grand Princess Cruises tour some of the most beautiful destinations in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. After a tiring day at port, the Grand offers a comfortable retreat, incredible service and entertainment from highly trained Princess Cruises staff where guests can rejuvenate for another day of fun and excitement.
The Western Caribbean Grand Princess cruises set sail from Galveston, Texas, and head out for the increasingly hot destination of Belize. Deep sea fishing here is phenomenal, as well as countless other outdoor activities such as biking and kayaking tours. The animal life is plentiful and the Mayan ruins are a must-see. For a taste of untapped paradise, Costa Maya/Majahual is a largely undeveloped region with white beaches, the world-renowned Great Maya Reef, and the enchanting mystery of the ruins of Chacchoben, which still lies largely enshrouded in jungle foliage.
Hit the dance floor and find the backbeat of a reggae band at Grand Cayman, where the water is always warm, and the lagoons and bays are a luminous blue/green, perfect for snorkeling or skimming along on a catamaran during Grand Princess cruises. The Green Sea Turtle Hatchery is a great stop, where you can view these amazing creatures, from hatchlings to the 600-lb adults. Near the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Cozumel also features stunningly blue waters, beaches with cliff faces jutting up behind them, and the famed ruins of Tulum, which still look out over the water just as they did when their Mayan inhabitants first caught sight of Spanish ships arriving in the 15th century making this a spot of incredible historical importance.
With five different cruises of these waters and ancient ports, no ship does the Mediterranean quite like the cruise ship Grand Princess.
The 19-day Cathedrals and Castles tours during Grand Princess Cruises are full of Gothic spires, flying buttresses, Byzantine architraves, domes and columns, and medieval fortresses.
You set out from canals of the romantic city of Venice, and then head to Prague to visit the St. Vitus Cathedral, Hradcany Castle, and the Royal Palace during Grand Princess Cruises. Enjoy baroque Vienna before sailing to see the Benedictine Abbey in Melk, and then you're off to Budapest, which has many Cathedrals and a castle district. Delving into the ancient world, stand atop the Acropolis and see Athens, old and new, spread beneath you. The ruins and the stunning beauty of Mykonos will linger in your mind while you travel to Naples, then Civitavecchia, from which you can tour the Vatican City, the Coliseum, and the architectural marvel and Rome's house of the Gods, the Pantheon.
These Grand Princess cruises also stop at the seaside Livorno, a gateway to Florence, and then continue on to the inviting French port of Marseille, before heading to the dynamic and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona.
The 16-night Under the Tuscan Sun cruise includes several days in port, a four-night land tour and a 12-day cruise of the Mediterranean on the cruise ship Grand Princess. Stops include Milan and Florence, both old Renaissance cities with classic Italian architecture, Byzantine churches, and cobblestone streets. See the works of Michelangelo and Da Vinci before heading on to Venice, from which you sail to Athens. See the famed Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, the ancient seat of the Byzantine Empire at Constantinople, now the modern capital of Turkey. A day in the sun and waters of Mykonos breaks up the trip to Civitavecchia, Rome, Livorno, Marseille, and Barcelona.
One unforgettable cruise is the transatlantic journey from Galveston to Rome, a 16-night cruise of the high seas with stops in Ft. Lauderdale, the Azores, Portugal, Barcelona, Cannes, Livorno, and Civitavecchia.
When the Caribbean sun and the sights of the old Mediterranean wear you out, retire in comfort and relaxation to one of six categories of staterooms. The Grand suite has a private balcony, hot tub, three televisions, and a wet bar. A popular favorite, the mini-suite has a balcony; the outside double has a balcony, queen bed, and two twins that can be drawn together to make a queen.
Dine at your leisure with the cruise ship Grand Princess Personal Choice plan, which allows you to take your seat at one of the three main dining rooms when you are ready, not when summoned at a particular time. If you're on the go, there is a pizzeria. When you're hanging out poolside you can grab a burger at an outdoor grill. For a taste of the Southwest, try the Painted Desert. For a more formal setting, slip over to Sabatini's Trattoria, featuring the cuisine of Italy.

Get in your daily workout in a gym at the top of the ship, with a view of the seas and lands passing by, or try one of the treatments in the onboard spa.
