Golden Princess

7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Seattle Roundtrip)

Sail Date: May 22, 2010

Ship: Golden Princess

Cabin Type: Oceanview

Traveled As: Large Group

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review Summary

The ship was beautiful but had a few flaws. The theaters were too small to accommodate all of the people. The buffett was very disorganized. No one way in or out and not enough drink stations. Need drink stations on the decks outside besides inside. On formal nights there should be at least one dining room you can eat in if you don't want to go the formal route. Also, the dining room staff was not very friendly. The room steward was awesome and our room was great for a cruiseship. They also didn't have enough onboard activities catered to the everyday person. All activities seemed to be centered around the upper class only. Carnival has these areas covered much better.

Didn't get to walk into town because we took a long excursion. The whale watching tour and mendenhall glacier are a must see.
