Grand Princess Gets a Refit

Posted on Sunday, April 17, 2011 |
Princess cruises' Grand Princess will be in a dry dock in Freeport, Bahamas for 24 days whilst she is refitted to add some of the cruise line's trademark features. One major change will be the removal of the Skywalker's night club perched high on the stern of the vessel, as it reportedly does nothing for fuel economy! Additions are to include a nightclub called One5 Lounge, a pizzeria and tea lounge, and 7 new suites. other key areas on the ship will be renovated.

Until May 4th, cruisers and anyone interested can follow the refit by way of an online video diary. The diary is hosted by Cruise Director Martyn Moss.

"We have seen from past refits that passengers love to keep up-to-date with what is happening on board and, as a British favourite, the Grand Princess video updates are set to be 'must-see' viewing,"


Pieter Van der Schee told The Mirror.
