I have been on both more than once and feel the Grand is better than the Sea Princess. I would also recommend Royal Carribean and Carnival who also have ships in the med.

Thank you , Tullock , I will be more relaxed about looking now. That was exactly what I wanted, someone to recommend the next ship to us as we don't want our next cruise to be a let down after having such a wonderful 1st cruise.

Sorry to disagree with tullock. I have been on the Grand and sister ship Star Princess and Sea Princess. They do NOT have the same lovely atmosphere as Sea Princess. I have found Sea Princess to be consistently a wonderful ship and that is largley because it is medium sized. The bigger ships may have more bars etc. but there are so many people (3000)there is no atmosphere. In fact shear numbers of less relaxed people can be overwhelming.

Thank you Macro , I don't see how it can be as nice as the Sea Princess , due to the size of it and the ammount of people.I have read that there are long waits fot the lifts as well and the horison isn't as easy as on the " Sea ". Well we have no option really , we have to try it as the "sea" has been taken off the med. I wish they would realise that people get an affection for that ship and don't want to have to move to another.

All Aboard The Caribbean Princess

By Pippa Hayden

So last week was a pretty busy week for me. Living up in Lossiemouth I had a training course in Glasgow on Wednesday and a training course in Edinburgh on Thursday but the highlight of my week has to have been my Ship visit onboard the Caribbean Princess. She was in port in Invergordon for the day whilst on her 12 night British Isles itinerary so I took the chance to hop onboard and see what she had to offer.When I arrived I was greeted in the Piazza by John from Princess Cruise and some othe...

Lovely Eclipse Weekend

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have just had a fantastic 2 night cruise on the wonderful Eclipse.The mini cruise was part of my month long 40th Celebrations and was a little getaway for me and my partner. It is the first time in 14 years that we have been away without the children and although we missed them we had such a great few days.We started the break by heading down to Southampton, which is a bit of a trek from Barrow-in-Furness but I find it no problem by rail. I would recommend staying over in Southampton the ...

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
