One of the drawbacks of the
Skywalker's arrangement was
that it cast a shadow over the
Terrace Pool and the Oasis
area.
The most visible change to Grand Princess during
the 2011 refit was the removal of the structure
that enclosed the ship's nightclub
Skywalkers.  
The structure was suspended over the stern at the  
top of the ship.  Guests accessed the nightclub via
a glass tunnel.   Reportedly, the entire structure
has been submerged in order to become a
man-made reef in the Bahamas.
     Another major change to the ship was the transformation of
the Grand Plaza into the Piazza.  Left: The
Grand Plaza in
2007.

Lobby Bar in the Grand Plaza.

Below:  The ship's
Library was off the Grand Plaza where
Alfredo's Pizzeria is now.  
A change that pre-dated the 2011 refit was the
transformation of
Center Court (below) into
the Sanctuary.
The Promenade Lounge and Bar on Deck 7 has been replaced
by Crooners Bar.

Grand Princess' steakhouse, the
Painted Dessert, had a cowboy
theme (below).
The Guest Services Desk, then called Reception, as well as the
Shore Excursions Desk and the Future Cruise Office, were also in the
Grand Plaza.
The ship's casino, once the largest at sea, had
a much different look when it was the
Atlantis Casino (left).

The
Horizon Court (below) has also
changed.
