July 2014 - Golden Princess to Alaska - Inside Passage
Pros: Food was excellent as was service; Room was well designed, easy access to storage space; Public areas on ship were tastefully decorated; Anytime dining is the best; Boarding and disembarking were smooth, didn't feel like cattle; Seating was never crowded in buffet area; I am a musician and every entertainer on board was excellent!!
Cons: Wine and bar drinks were excessively overpriced-- a small glass of house wine cost more than a 1.5 litre bottle on shore! Our last Europe river luded unlimited free wine with lunch and dinner.
Security: I have a knee replacement and do not appreciate the aggressive groping by the security officer every time I returned to the ship. They should use the same scanners TSA uses at airports
