14 Night Hawaii (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 04, 2009
Ship: Golden Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

Ship very well maintained. Laid out nicely. We noticed the cutbacks right away. We are Captain Circle members but had no notice of CC events and NO free gifts that we have received on other ships. (totes, candy etc.) Also photo prices were EXORBITANT!

Didn't take a shore excursion as we had been here twice before.
Don't Miss: We enjoyed Wiakaki Beach.

We did a whale watch and also enjoyed the "free" whale watch off our balcony.
Don't Miss: Thoroughly enjoyed the whale watch.

I understand Mexico is trying to do more tourist business but this stop is a waste of time!

Pros: Lovely ship

Cons: Small cabins

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!
