When Grand Princess cruise ship was being built back in 1998, it was described by the company as "the biggest, the fastest cruise vessel in the world, the most advanced... the grandest cruise liner on the ocean."

Grand Princess cruise ship did actually spend a year as the biggest, fastest and most sophisticated cruise vessel at sea, but it is now dwarfed by many others which are bigger, faster, newer and more technologically advanced.

Over a decade later, the main vessel design which anchors Princess' most popular class (that includes Caribbean Princess, Star Princess, Golden Princess, Crown Princess, Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess cruise ships) still holds its own thanks to a massive refurbishment in May 2011. The multi-million dollar overhaul of Grand Princess cruise ship included a full transformation of the vessel's atrium into the much jazzier Piazza (a newfangled addition represented by the fleet's most recent vessels that combines theater in the round with food and drink outlets). It eventually got its own version of The Sanctuary, a popular adult-only sun deck that was released on Crown Princess cruise liner in 2006.
