Golden Princess Cruise Review by MaxCaz
- Sail Date: March 2019
- Destination: Australia & New Zealand
- Cabin Type: Balcony
I did this cruise with my sister ans as it was her first time on a ship, the length of the duration was such that if she did not like it then it was not far from home.
But ... all the facilities on board really blew us away. The food was excellent, we dined mainly in Donatello and could not fault the staff, they were very friendly, efficient, obliging and prompt. The choice of food was out of this world.
Our cabin, was great but maybe a bit small , we really enjoyed the balcony to laze away in the sun. The cabin steward was very obliging and nothing was a bother for him to ensure that we had every thing we needed.
Entertainment, the variety of shows was wide spread something for everyone. The highlight for me was, being able to participate in activities that I would not participate in in my normal life at home. The quality of the show presentations was a credit to the performers and all those involved in the production, very professional and entertaining.
Service.. with over 1000 crew on board you would think you would find one that did not meet your expectations for service but in my experience I did not meet any who were not friendly, and helpfull. There ability to remember who we were when we would meet around the ship was amazing, great PR for the ship and staff.
Ports and Excursions... The choice of activities was many, something for all budgets. From the most lavish trips to disembarking and walking around the local port area and taking in the culture.
Disembarkation...The ease of getting off the ship and through customs was excellent, very efficient and fast, all our luggage was waiting to be collected and a very short walk to our waiting families at the port entrance.
Would I go again... In a heart beat,, the Golden Princess experience was that good.
My husband and I are now planning a trip to coincide with our 50th wedding anniversary in March 2020.
