My first cruise ever and we were one of the youngest on the ship, very nice and well respect staff, I love the vibe with the elderly, it was very luxurious and relaxing. Great ship and service! I’m sure me and my partner will go again and again and again by JohnLeo

An enjoyable first cruise with kids by cuthbees

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Golden Princess

Lovely staff but ship was dated and we were disappointed one of the stops was cancelled (this was not the ships fault). The demographic was a lot older and the kids club was very basic although the staff were great and due to the low number of children there was a good ratio of staff to kids.

Great Cruise by Adele46

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Golden Princess / Destination: South Pacific

This cruise was really enjoyable. It’s sad to think people continue to criticise the boat she is lovely with so much character. Modern is nice but dosnt have the warmth of the older ships.

Australia/New Zealand cruise, Mark 2 by Rhiuial30

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Golden Princess / Destination: South Pacific

Can’t really add too much, except that the port times seem to have been greatly reduced, especially in Wellington and Auckland. It made it somewhat difficult to do everything we wanted, especially in Auckland.

Bed Bugs! by wendels

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Golden Princess / Destination: South Pacific

Our first cruise was marred midway by some nasty bed bug bites! After about 3 days, we started waking up with big itchy bites, but thought they might have been mosquito bites. They inspected the room after my first complaint but said it was a "negative" finding. After waking up bitten even worse, we asked them to check again, but same "negative" finding. The evidence was all over my body, but that didn't seem to matter. In the end we looked ourselves by just searching the bed covers and found and trapped one in a glass. They finally moved us, but not before letting us know we were "lucky" to get a new room because someone had been medically evacuated.... I understand that bed bugs happen, it was just the way we were treated that was disappointing. We met with the Customer service manager in the end and some on board credit was applied, but it didn't really make up for the pain and discomfort from my bites that we're were hot, itchy and weepy. I just hope they fade ok and don't scar from the scratching. Overall, I did enjoy the facilities and days at sea, the port call days were good but rushed!

Had a wonderful time in NZ by HelenSmith61

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Golden Princess / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

Princess cruises are our favourite cruise line, and this cruise was right up to their standards, despite being on the oldest ship in the fleet. Great service, entertainment, and onboard shopping. The meals were fantastic, and waitstaff exceptional. All in all , an a1 cruise.

Not Worth It by diane1774

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Golden Princess / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

We are yearly cruisers in our 40s/50s, and were bored out of our minds on this cruise (to the point we considered leaving the ship early). All of the activities and entertainment is geared towards a MUCH older, less active crowd (even the front desk confirmed this). If you enjoy a more quiet experience - i.e. knitting classes, bossanova music, in bed by 10pm - than this is the cruise for you. They do not offer a variety to appeal to all ages, even though there were some younger folks on board (although I’d say 75% on the guests were retirement age or older). The good news is that the casino will never be crowded so you’ll always get a seat at a table (and may often be one of a few people in there). Just watch the dealers! My son was cheated my a dealer who couldn’t count to 21 and when caught, the pit boss said “he’s just a trainee” and laughed. We will NOT be cruising with Princess again.

Christmas cruise by XTSea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Golden Princess

Had a good time. Weather wasn't friendly which did impact on cruise. Captain decided to divert ship from going south to Fjorjland and Dunedin due to weather forecast. Instead we went to Picton. I can understand why he did it, but a bit hasty and over cautious. As it turned out, weather would've been fine when we'd have got there. Despite this, we had a fun cruise. Met lovely fellow passengers.
