Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate at the buffet most of the time and it was excellent. Lots of new choices each day and the food was kept hot until served. Very clean too.

The comedians were very, very funny and we were very impressed with Billy Hygate. He's very warm, peresonable and quite talented. A keeper!! There was a lot of variety of activities. We did wish that we could have used the casino without having to breath all of that second hand smoke. Due to this, we didn't gamble at all during our trip. There needs to be a non-smoking casino area too!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Overall, the crew was very friendly and helpful. Our cabin steward made us feel like we were the only ones sailing and was always there with a warm "Hello" and greeted us by our first names each time. Some of the bartenders weren't quite as friendly which was disappointing.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
First rate in quality and very clean.

We were very happy with our mini-suite. It was just the right size for us. We happened to see a smaller room with no window and were very happy we paid a little extra for a larger room.

This was our least favorite port, but was still enjoyable. It was dirtier than the other two and not quite as scenic. Still good though.

I didn't leave my heart in San Francisco; I left it in Cabo!! Just gorgeous. We took a short boat-tour of the rock formations, caves, seals, birds and other sites. We were so glad we did. We want to come back next year just for Cabo. We were disappointed there was less time in Cabo than the other two ports. Oh well!
Don't Miss: The boat tour around the rocky formations, etc.

It was beautiful. Walking along the paved beachfront area was very nice and the local artwork was amazing!!
Don't Miss: We ate at "Epoca" restaurant. It was very good and our waitress was very friendly

Pros: Friendly and attentive staff

Cons: Bathrooms were hard to find and not enough drinking fountains

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!
