Just An OK experience

Sail Date: November 07, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

First impressions count the most. First night the pillow cases were stained and had hair from previous people. For all I know even the sheets were the same. I do know they were not changed even once the whole 14 day cruise. And I would not have given a 15% gratuity if I had a choice. But they take it automatically. Not good! I want control of how I spend my cash...

Pros: The waiters

Cons: Sleeping on same sheets for 14 days

Recommends Golden Princess? No.

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The buffet was very limited. And the food was tasteless
Cabin / Stateroom
Except for mentioned above it was ok
Service and Staff
The waiters in the dining room were the only ones who went over and above
Shows were very lacking. A piano player\, a magician\, a juggler... Really?
The musical numbers were best but I've seen better on other ships.
