This was our first cruise but will not be our last. I love Princess! Their entertainment was phenomenal. The food was fantastic. The crew of the boat was always cheerful and helpful. The International Cafe/Bakery was to die for. They walked around with warm fresh cookies and milk. We had 2,700 passengers on the boat, yet, we never felt crowded, we never waited to be seated for dinner, and getting on and off at ports was fast and smooth. My only con is the pools. They had four pools plus hot tubs but only one was inside. I'm sure this is great for cruise heading south but when we were sailing the cool air kept us out of the water. They heated the pools but 80 degrees was still a bit chilly. The hot tubs were usually full. The inside pool was always full of kids and it would have been nice if they had an indoor adult only pool.

Pros: The Food and the Entertainment!

Cons: The pools

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was large but easy to get around and well laid out. There were stairs and elevators that connected every deck of the ship.
Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
We never once waited to be seated for anytime dinning. Our drinks were refilled continually. The staff was great.
Service and Staff
Our room steward knew us by name after meeting us once and always addressed us by name. Our rooms were cleaned 3 or 4 times a day. The steward went above and beyond. Everywhere we went they were friendly and helpful.
The Princess singer and dancers were very talented. The juggler-comedian was awesome and hilarious. Do not miss Chuck Gunter if he is on your cruise!
