Our first cruise(except my Navy days!)...our time on the Golden Princess was almost impeccable, everyone of the staff that we encountered was professional, pleasant, and interesting. Although the ship was at capacity, we never felt crowded. The entertainment was very versatile to please everyones tastes. Understanding that ship logistics can play a role..I wish more time was spent in the ports of call, especially Victoria, B.C...The "Princess Patter" would be enhanced by including some nautical definitions for the land lubbers (?what is a knot, how far is a nautical mile, why is it called 'aft', 'port' etc....it would be fun!).but overall we had a magnificently wonderful time!!!!!!
Pros: Extremely efficient embarking and disembarking,5 star accommodations! FOOD!
Cons: Our bed was very uncomfortable, two twins put together to make a queen,each twin swayed in the middle
