This was our first cruise and we liked it a lot. The service especially of our Cabin Steward was impeccable - a lot better than some of the best hotels around the globe that we had stayed in. Most of the service crew were Asian and they really know the meaning of service. The food was excellent..with so much variety. The evening shows were good - very family-oriented and clean.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
As mentioned before, the food was great....we enjoyed the buffet dining so much..such great variety that we found ourselves going towards the buffet for every meal even though we had daily intentions of trying out the other dining areas.


5 out of 5
Lot and lots of activities to keep you occupied all day...and for the children too.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Most of the crew were friendly and helpful. Could not help but notice that the ones who gave excellent service with a smile were the Asians while the Eastern European staff were not so friendly.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Overall the ship was very clean and well kept. The pool areas were messy/slippery sometimes but that's to be expected a lot of kids playing in and around the pools.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our balcony-suite was neat and the bathroom was always kept clean daily by the steward.

Pros: Food, Service (especially cabin steward)

Cons: Expensive Day Tours

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!
