Sail Date: January 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Staff is excellent, food in dining rooms is gexcellent. The buffet is not good nor is it sanitary. Entertainment was excellent

Pros: The staff and the food in the dining room was excellent.

Cons: The ship has stopped using mandatory hand sanitizers at the dining areas and other places on ghe sheip. Thie caused our ship to have a round of the flu that hit a larger percentage of the passengers. Though the claim to comply with the CDC, that does not meantthat they are doing all that is possib

Recommends Golden Princess? No.

Ship Quality
Use of hand sanitizer has been reduced due. No longer forced to sanitize hands prior to using buffet. Lot of people caught the flu while traveling on the ship. Princess needs to revisit their sanitation policy as far as placement of hand sanitizers
Entertainment was very good. Allways something to do, or see. Piano players in both bars, novelty acts, chefs, artists, all for your enjoyment. Movies show outside on a drive-in sized screen were excellent.
Food and Dining
With the exception of the Buffet. The food was excellent, the hours of service was above average. A hamburger grill, piza paror, and ice cream stand is open most of the day and evening. The internet cafe has excellent soups, sandwiches, and salads. Quality of food was exceptional. However, the buffet food was sub standard, and it was a breeding ground for intestional ailments and influenza. Not much attention to customer sanitization. And an indifference at the Pursor's office about the health issues on the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very pleased with both accomodation and service.
Service and Staff
The best we have experienced. Service was exceptional, and very personalized. The staff new our names and preferences by the end of the cruise.
