In this final installment in Princess Cruises‘ Grand Princess drydock video diary, the passengers have boarded.  Martyn proudly showcases the new Piazza-style atrium’s many features, as well as the Crown Grill.  On hand to help celebrate the ship’s Grand Opening are many Princess Cruises executives and crew members, including Executive Chef Alfredo Marzi (for whom the new Alfredo’s Pizzaria is named), the Grand Princess’s Sommelier, Maitre d’ and others.

The pastries and coffee in the International Cafe look very tempting, the Sommelier mentions a few exquisite wines available onboard, Chef Marzi serves Martyn the first pizza made in his new namesake restaurant, and the ambience in the new Crown Grill is superb.

And if you’ve been following my posts about the Grand Princess’s renovations, you know that’s just a few of the new features onboard.  What a magnificent new ship the Grand Princess has become!

Just one day before welcoming passengers onboard the newly-renovated Grand Princess, cruise director Martyn takes us on a whirlwind tour of the completed areas, including the Princess casino, the family sunbathing area (complete with a new splash pool), the fitness center and Lotus Spa (You’ll even get the hairdresser’s perspective on the new salon and spa areas while she gives Martyn a haircut!).

In this episode of the Grand Princess’s drydock video diary, we get a glimpse of the hull of the new Princess Cruises ship being painted.  Next, cruise director Martyn shows us the final preparations being made in the newly-expanded Horizon Court Buffet, on deck, on the atrium stairs, and in staterooms. 

I’m sure the newly-renovated Grand Princess will deliver a wonderful cruise experience for its passengers.

As Princess Cruises’ Grand Princess nears the end of its drydock time and prepares to welcome passengers aboard the newly-renovated ship, the Cruise Director gives us updates on many areas, including Crooners’ Bar, Leaves Tea Lounge & Library (where a multitude of different teas will be available for sampling soon), the Fitness Center, and many deck areas.  Enjoy!

With less than two days to go before Princess Cruises‘  Grand Princess is to receive passengers, this video update gives us a preview of the brand-new Piazza-style atrium.   Looking good!

The Hotel Manager onboard Princess Cruises‘ Grand Princess gives us details on the hard work being done to get the ship ready for passengers.  He also tells us about the operations underway to ensure that the ship’s contractors and crew members are well taken care of, from their office needs to laundry.  In his words, Princess Cruises is “still the Consummate Host®,” during the course of the ship’s drydock renovations.
