The Golden Princess is an older ship but the crew took pride in keeping her clean. If there was a problem, there was a prompt response to resolving it with minimal hassle to us.

Very smooth transition off the ship. We needed to get an earlier flight home and they helped us change our disembarkation time to accommodate our flight. Thanks for a great experience seeing Alaska for our anniversary!
