P&O and Princess are sister cruise lines, P&O is targeted more for the British market while Princess is targetted for the American market, the shows a more glamerous, the public rooms are more colourful with strong solouring and their seems to be a strong emphasis on tipping. The grand princess is 109,000 tonns so is a fairly large ship in comparison to Oceana which is only 77,000 tonns. So if you enjoy the large public rooms where you can meet lots of new people, then the grand princess should be your cup of tea.

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive.

I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
