14 Night Hawaii (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 08, 2010
Ship: Golden Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The Golden had been recently renovated. The ship is absolutely beautiful. It was a full sailing and yet we were not constantly in big jam ups. the Piazza was a beautiful central location with great entertainment through out the day and evening.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The dining was a huge disappointment in that we had opted for anytime dining which meant even though we would call right a 8 am all we were given for choice was 5 or 5:30. the selection of food was not good at all. We ended up going to the horizon grill where the food was far superior to the dining room unlike our past cruising experience.

The entertainment was great. A lot of variety and at all times of the day.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The stateroom was very adequate. Unfortunately we did have some smokers around who felt they needed to smoke in their rooms and balconies.

We again rented a car and did aquick tour. The island is too big to see very much in the short time we were there.

The black sand beach as very intriguing.

We rented car and travelled the whole island. The weather was great even in the north. The view at the grand canyon was spectacular
Don't Miss: The grand canyon.
