Great getaway cruise

Sail Date: October 27, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was a relaxing very enjoyable 3 day cruise. The Golden Princess is a nice ship that provides good service and is well maintained. The entertainment is good, the pools are nice, the food is ok in the dining rooms and good in the casual lido deck area. The pastry chef on board Golden is very good and all the deserts will be great. Balcony cabins are very good size and the balconies are large. As on most ships the spa is nice but way over priced, a pedicure is $75.00 get one at home before boarding average is only $30.00 nation wide. Embarking and debarking was very well organized and made easy. Have been on 21 cruises on many different lines some short some 14 days, for a 3 day getaway this ship and cruise was worth the money. Not the best food but but not the worst either. I do think it is the nicest ship making that 3 day mexico cruise in the month of Oct and Nov.

Destinations and Excursions
Did not take this cruise for destination, Ensenada is not a great destination is just ok.
Cabin / Stateroom
Lots of room and closet space very nice balcony. Better then most ships of its era.
San Pedro (Los Angeles), California
Ok port nothing special easy in and out and clean. A bit dated.
Ensenada, Mexico
Its not Cabo or St Martin, Nassau etc, ok for a quick visit for shopping and some good Mexican food


Relax have some room service and breakfast delivered to your cabin. the room service is very quick and efficient and shopping on board is pleasant. princess does a good job in most areas.
