  3. Golden Princess
The Golden princess is very old and looks it, the Air conditioning did not work properly, the ship needs major repairs and is dirty. There was a number of black crickets on Deck 14 which says something about the way they keep the ship clean. In the Horizon Dining room, the food options are limited and food from a Coles Cafetiere would be better. Deserts was the same everyday. The Main Dining room the food was much better but not alot of variety, but the staff were good. Since the staff know it is going to be a P&O ship in two years there attitude is not good. All the cruise line cares about is push goods and services to make money, but do not back it up with service I did have another cruise booked with Princess but have cancelled it now, I think it is time to vote with my feet and try another Cruise line not owned by Cunard and I am an Elite member so it say alot.

Too Old and should be retired

Cabin Review

Oceanview (obstructed view)
Cabin OV E225
Air Conditioning did not work properly, the TV was terrible and did not work properly either and needs replacing straight away
Shower too small for the average person, but the beds are good so I guess as long as you can sleep the rest you can get over
Emerald Deck Inside Cabins, Outside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
