The Grand Class is an elegant group of three cruise ships, owned by Princess Cruises. Comprising of principal ship the Grand Princess, plus the Golden Princess and Star Princess, there are several sub-categories of cruise ship (the Gem, Ventura, Caribbean and Crown) which have evolved from the original Grand Class ship design.
Setting sail in 1998, lead ship the Grand Princess was the largest and most expensive ship ever built and is still hailed as one of the grandest ships on the ocean. Following a million-dollar refurbishment in 2011, Grand Princess is fitted with signature features from Princess Cruises, including the transformation of the atrium into the Italian-inspired Piazza, the Sanctuary adult-only lounging deck and an array of superb restaurants and dining areas.
