I love the Golden Princess

Sail Date: January 16, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

We left from San Pedro January 16, 2013, no problems. The suite was perfect. The 5 sea days on the way to Hawaii were a little rough. Being on deck 15 didn't help. We don't get seasick, so that wasn't a problem. Sleeping was tough with all the rocking and rolling, 12 ft. waves and gale force winds. Hubby got the flu on the way over, I got it on the way back. Room service was great. Room steward, Geronimo was excellent. Bingo was fun. Dinner waiters were excellent. Dinner companion's were very nice. The 5 sea days on the way back were also rough, again 12 ft. waves and gale force winds. I would recommend this cruise, but not in January. Maybe a little later due to the weather. Hawaii was wonderful. Hilo excursion to Rainbow falls was great. Honolulu we shopped as we have been there before. Kauai, we took the movie tour and it was excellent, highly recommended. Maui, we took the whale watch excursion and that also was excellent, saw lots of whales.
