Grand Princess is a Grand-class cruise ship owned by Princess Cruises. Built in 1998 by Fincantieri Cantieri Navali Italiani in Monfalcone, Italy, with hull number 5956, at a cost of approximately US$450 million. She was the largest and most expensive passenger ship ever built at the time. Grand Princess was the flagship in the Princess Cruises fleet until the new Royal Princess took that title in June 2013.

Design

Grand Princess was the first of the ''Grand''-class ships, and has a different decor scheme to her sister ships, using darker woods, and the interior decor is more similar to the smaller Sun-class ships. When Grand Princess was launched, she featured in the Princess Cruises brochures as a "Sun" class ship; it was only with the subsequent launch of Golden Princess that the "Grand class" appeared in brochures.

She is the sister ship of Star Princess and Golden Princess. Grand Princess was the setting for a task in the second series of the UK version of the reality TV show The Apprentice.

Grand Princess has a large theatre, a large central performance lounge and an aft show lounge.

In May 2011, Grand Princess completed the most extensive drydock in Princess Cruises history that included a refit and removal of the passengers lounge from her stern. This resolved her tendency to sail bow high, and has improved her fuel economy by about 3-4%. The bow high tendency was peculiar to Grand Princess, and does not affect any of the other Grand class ships (or the derivative classes) as unlike Grand Princess they have aluminium upper decks.

Ports of call

As of September 2016, Grand Princess is based year-round in San Francisco, California sailing to Alaska, Victoria on Vancouver Island, Hawaii, Mexico Riviera, and California Coastal Cruises.
