The Food, Service and production shows were all excellent. All a lot of the production shows we had seen in the past. The itinerary was excellent which is why we went. We had never seen New Zealand or Australia before. We spent an ... Read more

Decided to go on this cruise only 4 weeks before departure. Good price on a Princess ship I had not been on before because I mainly cruise out of Sydney because I don't like flying. The overseas terminal at Circular Quay was no worse than ... Read more

From the word go I had concerns - the embarkation time was being continually changed; arrangements at Sydney were diabolical considering millions had just been spent on updating this terminal - took 3 hours to actually board ship (from ... Read more

This holiday met all my expectations of a cruise. The entertainment was very good, with a good variety of entertainment types and different shows on offer every day. The only complaint I would have was when a show was in the Vista lounge ... Read more

What is better than leaving San Francisco on a crisp fall afternoon and ending in Sydney Australia on beautiful spring morning in less than a month? We sailed on the Golden Princess from SF to Honolulu circled the Islands stopped in Maui ... Read more

Boarding/Departure We had read a lot of horror stories about Boarding in San Francisco. Our experience was very good. Arrived around 11, easy baggage drop off, quickly through security then comfortable in the lounge before boarding ... Read more

I booked this cruise as part of the bucket list thing. It was to be the trip of a lifetime. In some ways it delivered, not so much in other ways. We have cruised princess about 4 times and have cruised other lines approximately 5 ... Read more

Embarkation went very smoothly. The San Francisco cruise terminal is very modern and the staff were very efficient. We arrived at 12:30 pm and were on the ship by 12:50pm. We had spent a week in the USA travelling before the cruise, so ... Read more

Very pleasantly surprised with our cruise on the Golden as the service was fantastic from start to finish . After just getting off the Sea princess a week prior and being bitterly disappointed with the condition of the ship and the poor ... Read more

Fantastic cruise! The entertainment was top notch - piano entertainer Oliver Holland (and his fan club) in the Promenade lounge was amazing and really made this trip fun and memorable. The shows were much better than those I've seen on ... Read more

Most of us waited nearly two hours in line or holding areas to board. This was our 7th cruise and the 4th on Princess. Very disappointing. If you enjoy casino food, you'll like the buffet. However, the buffet personnel were friendly ... Read more

We sailed with Princess on the Golden out of San Francisco for 10 days. As we live in California this just made sense. We did very little traveling off the boat (it clocked around three thousand miles in ten days, wow) This was our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it left from and returned to our home city. It was a nice cruise but nothing really stood out. The food in the main dining room ranged from mediocre to bad. So much cost cutting has resulted in poor ... Read more

This was our sixth third cruise, our third with Princess and our first cruise to Alaska. Golden Princess was our largest ship to date, we found the layout to be very good, yet we did not find it crowded at all. We loved everything ... Read more

Anytime dining DOES NOT mean "anytime dining". It means you cannot enter Donatello's until AFTER 7:45pm. Bernini, the traditional dining room is the ONLY anytime dining along with the Lido's Horizon Buffet. We received a ... Read more

If I could give twenty stars for the perfect thing to do with our family I would! I only gave it four because we have cruised quite a bit and, in all honesty, depending on what you are looking for, the Golden is an older ship and some ... Read more

This was my fourth cruise to Alaska, third on a Princess ship, and most likely our last cruise on Princess. The Golden, like so many ships in the Princess fleet, is an older ship. Even though it was recently refurbished it still needs a ... Read more
