|The Grand Princess, sporting a new streamlined silhouette after an extensive transformation, is shown leaving Port Everglades, Florida.|
Something old is new again as the Grand Princess has undergone the "most-significant transformation ever" of a Princess Cruises' ship.
The makeover of the grand ship required 1,400 contractors working around the clock for 24 days in the line’s most-extensive dry-dock ever.
Now back making waves again, the Grand Princess left Ft. Lauderdale last month for a transatlantic crossing to her summer and fall homeport of Southampton, from which she is sailing on a variety of European itineraries.
