Review Summary

My wife and I sailed as part of a group of old high school buddies and friends, mostly seniors. Our cruise of the British Isles & Western Europe was our fifth but first on Princess. All our others were on Holland-America and Norwegian. Our experience on the Golden Princess was very good overall. Considering the great bargain we got from our group consultant, we overlooked some of the ships shortcomings.

Great lunch of mostly fish choices.

Le Havre (Paris), France

Beautiful city. Unfortunately we had to see it in a steady rain. Would love to see Paris at night. This could be a two day stop.

Dublin, Ireland

3 out of 5
Our tour had almost no time for shopping. Was disappointing to those on our cruise who promised to bring home to the kids something from old Ireland.

Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland

Pros: The crew. Always very friendly and helpful and trying to please. Also the ship is impressive. Clean and well maintained.

Cons: The ship did seem over crowded at times, especially in the dining rooms. And the public restrooms are near impossible to find. Seemed tucked away with no signs to help.
