For all the chatter on Cruise Critic over the past week about the transformation of Grand Princess, we forgot to tell you one thing. Sure, the new piazza’s great, the pizza’s delicious and the sleek new nightclub — premiered last night, we’ve got great photos — are all well and good. But in the end, refurbishment or not, a cruise boils down to this: It’s tremendous fun.
This afternoon, as we pulled away from Spain’s Vigo, a festive going away party was both patriotic and raucous (we’ve got gorgeous video of passengers, filling the sundeck, singing “Rule Britannia” and waving flags — we’ll put it up when we get onto land as it’s too big to send from here).
