Hey Cruisers! We finally got our Grand Princess Ship Tour posted. In this video we are going to look at most public areas of the beautiful Grand Princess. These clips were taken on our 2017 10 night Alaska cruise onboard the Grand Princess. You can check out our vlogs from this sailing here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCLybRxC0VFKOqY_ElIyrpsqPjFPwVj7S We move through the Grand Princess from the lower decks (deck 5) to the top of the ship (deck 17). We’ve edited the clips in a bottom to top, aft to forward arrangement.

Hi Cruisers, In this video we try something a little new, and take you for a walk around the Queen Mary Hotel promenade. We are just starting to use our Insta360 One video camera, so bare with us. Watching this Insta360 video sample of the Queen Mary Hotel promenade, I can see a few things I could have done better, or at least different. In future 360 videos I will try to resist the urge to “point” the camera. Instead I’ll leave the focal point of the video up to the viewer to choose. That said, it was a lot of fun doing this Queen Mary 360 tour. Oh, and yes, it is a bit bumpy (my fault), but that’s something else I can work on. Also, it was a bit of a dark dreary day in Long Beach, and the Insta360 doesn’t do super well in low light. So, we’ll just have to deal with that little bit of grain in the video. Overall I think we are happy with taking a few steps in the direction of producing more 360 video. BTW – we had planned on doing a full walk around the Queen Mary for a full “Queen Mary Ship Tour”, but there were a lot of areas closed off for renovation, and it was raining quite a bit. If you’re interested in seeing a quick Queen Mary room tour, you can check out my simple video here: https://youtu.be/qAo-Zc-ERds

Hi Cruisers, With our 10 night Alaska cruise on the Grand Princess coming to an end soon, we feel like we’ve gotten to know the ship very well. We thought we’d take you around the ship and show you our top 5 favorite places on the Grand Princess. But first, if you want reviews and photos from other cruisers check out our sponsor, and visit CruiseLine.com
We are going to be doing a full ship tour soon, but until then you can check out these cool places. If you’ve been watching CruiseTipsTV for very long, you might guess the pools would make this list. All I can say is you’re just going to have to watch to find out if you are right.
