Golden Princess - beautiful, very well maintained ship, couldn't have asked for a better cruising experience. This was our 7th cruise and first on Princess - we were impressed.

Pros: There was always something to do or you could do nothing at all!

Cons: None

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!

Food and Dining
Amazing food - we had Anytime Dining - were seated in a timely manner and thoroughly enjoyed the company of new people at every dinner.
Ship Quality
Large ship, took a while to find our way around but eveything very conveniently located.
Cabin / Stateroom
Never saw our steward but our room was always made up!
Service and Staff
Very friendly, always able to point you in the right direction and eager to help with whatever question you had. Very attentive to people with disabilities and helpful with passengers with small children.
Always had something to do - good range of activities geared for all ages.
Lahaina, Maui
Lahaina Walking Tour wasn't what we expected. Next time we'll rent a car and go off on our own.
Honolulu, Oahu
We did the all day Polynesian Cultural Center - highly recommend this excursion - would love to go back and spend a couple more days there.
Don't Miss: Polynesian Cultural Center
Hilo, Hawaii
We took the tour to the volano, coffee plantation and winery. Our tour guide, Nathan, was entertaining and extremely knowledgable of the island and the volcano. Learned a lot about native plants on the way to the volcano and the volcano, itself, was awesome.
Ensenada, Mexico
We didn't get off the ship - we'd been to Ensendada before and felt our time was better spent on the ship.
Nawiliwili, Kauai
Must see - take the helicopter - worth the money!
Don't Miss: Heard the zip line was great, too.
