Great cruise

Sail Date: June 01, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was beautiful and colorful and our cabin which was on deck 8 was central to everything -the cabin had a great deal of storage.

Pros: The weather\, although cool\, was sunny every day with unimaginable beauty in every port we visited.

Cons: On the ship\, there was a lack of afternoon entertainment and the food at the buffet was never served hot\, always lukewarm.

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
The layout of the ship was easy to get acclimated to.
Food and Dining
The staff in both dining rooms were wonderful\, going out of their way to accommodate my sister who has a food intolerance. However\, we found the food on the buffet not as varied and not as plentiful as on previous cruises. Also\, the food on the buffet was never served hot\, always lukewarm - not a good thing.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was always kept clean and our steward offered to get anything we needed. He was always pleasant when seeing him.
Service and Staff
The staff in general were all pleasant and willing to help when needed.
There was a lack of activity in the afternoons especially on sea days. Could have used some musical entertainment throughout the ship on those days and the evening entertainment was also lacking. The shows\, although good\, were shorter than usual. The comedian was good on the 1st show day\, but on the 2nd he seemed repetitive. There was not enough of a venue for dancing for the older generation.
