Review summary

Most enjoyable. We found six days just right for a nice relaxing break Each day after breakfast we would go to the international cafe for coffee, then again most afternoons adding a sweet. Already paid a deposit for our next one.

Went to the movies and a few shows. Loved Peter Burn especially when he did Neil Diamond songs. Ships singers and dancers put on a fun show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room steward was lovely always saying hello and remembering our names which would not be easy. Waiters where very attentive and funny at times as we got to know them.

Ship Quality

The Golden is getting old now you can see it in the carpet, wearing out in places. A few leaks here and there as well. Overall was very clean

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bed was very comfy. Room not that big that’s why we always get the balcony for space and fresh air. Thank you for not allowing smoking on the balcony’s

Ship tip

Take an American aptor if you need to plug into ships electricity.

Very friendly people on the island, we didn’t book any excursions so just walked around for about an hour checked out the museum and local market before going back to the ship

Port Lincoln, Australia

We took the 20 minute walk into town. Had a look at the markets, walked along the shops. We where happy to spend most of our time back on ship.
