A Chilly Cruise

If you like the time "at sea", then by all means take this ship on this cruise. Just be warned that the pacific ocean is cold. We only had two or three "warm" days at sea, and they were still chilly. For the 30-40 age range people thinking about this cruise, know this, this is a cruise geared more for 60+ age group. While we found the older crowd acceptable, they don't offer a lot of activities for the "middle age'' folks. The crew was great, very plaesant, and ready to serve. The ship itself was ok in its layout. However we found out on the second to last day that the stabilizers were broke, which made for a very rocky ride.

Pros: Finally getting to Hawaii

Cons: The 8 days of cold in the pacific swells

Recommends Golden Princess? No.

Entertainment & activities are geared more for an older audience. We would have enjoyed "Movies under the stars" if it wasn't so cold at night.
Ship Quality
It is a smaller ship,so that means fewer people, which is nice. Everything was acceptable.
Food and Dining
Somethings were excellent, and somethings were sub par. But that can be anywhere you go. for the most part it was very good.
Cabin / Stateroom
We opted for an interior room on this cruise...that was a mistake. The size, decor, etc. was good, but when you go to sleep it is like you have no idea what time it is. They don't provide a clock in the room, so I would recomend taking one with you. You could get a wake up call, but if you forget to set one you could very easily sleep the day away.
Service and Staff
The crew was great, very friendly, very hard working, & did a fabulous job taking care of us.
