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.
