Disappointing, overall

Sail Date: February 15, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Suite

We found the Golden Princess to be poorly designed, overall. Public rooms look tired, ready for remodeling and updating. Our suite was far less than we expected. Poor lighting, no bathroom storage and awkward door placement. Most disappointing was the small verandah space and OBSTRUCTED VIEW, which we did not know about and would not have booked. Whose idea was it to place the live entertainment (loud!) right next to the library and Internet Cafe?

Pros: Entertaiment, food and service was good.

Cons: Ship layout, noise level throughout the ship in all public areas.

Recommends Golden Princess? No.
