Did not meet expectation

Sail Date: August 11, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Needs updating and a comprehensive cleaning. Staff did not seem overly concerned with providing assistance, unless a purchase was being made. One glass door missing creating wind tunnel (should have been 2 doors only had 1).

Pros: quick access to dock

Cons: overrating activities\, excursions

Recommends Golden Princess? No.

Ship Quality
needs updating and comprehensive cleaning\, door missing\, odors.
Food and Dining
chocolate layer cake was great\, otherwise food was just average - nothing spectacular. Recommend anytime dining - just call for reservation as needed otherwise use the Horizon Cafe
Cabin / Stateroom
smallest shower we have ever had on a cruise ship. Air conditioning was broken\, room too warm most of the time.
Service and Staff
inconsistent\, unless one was making a purchase
Good activities - dancing\, art\, wine tasting\, ping pong. However\, nightly entertainment was disappointing\, cruiser frequently walked out.
