Getting aboard and to the balcony room went smoothly and we had a great room steward. His care and attention were great and the room was always kept clean and stocked with fresh towels. We went to get our first meals and that is when ... Read more

It is difficult to write this review. My husband and I are not huge fans of cruises. We have only done one other cruise before this one to the Caribbean with Royal Caribbean. We really wanted to see the glaciers and this trip seemed to ... Read more

This was my first cruise. Ever. That said, I don't have other boats or cruise lines to compare with my experience on the Golden Princess, but I can now definitely be counted a definite cruise lover. While my family will always enjoy ... Read more

This was my first Alaska cruise and while the scenery was great, there were a few sea days that were too cold on deck to go out and enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately about 75% of the indoor sea day activities revolved around selling stuff ... Read more

Overall it was wonderful. The Crown Grill top notch, and the staff was great. Well worth the extra dollars. Buffet is just that a buffet, nothing to write home about. Anytime dining we learned is not for us. It is lengthy and ... Read more

We were on the Golden June 1 - 11 to Alaska. The suite we were in had so many things that needed fixed we spent part of every day trying to get them fixed. For example, our thermostat wouldn't work, so our room temperature was 62 degrees ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise to Alaska and our 4th to Alaska from San Francisco. This was our first cruise aboard the Golden Princess, but we had sailed on her sister ship the Grand Princess in the last couple of years. Embarkation at the ... Read more

Introduction This was our 5th and 6th time in Alaska (2001, 2006 and 2012), as we are also doing the 6/1/15 as a B2B. The main difference is that the 5/22/2015 cruise goes to Haines and Tracy Fjord, while the 6/1/2015 cruise goes to ... Read more

Embarkation is so much improved with the new SF terminal compared to last year. The cruise ship was delayed due to heavy cleaning from an outbreak of flu virus last cruise May 15, 2015. TIP: BRING CLOROX WIPES AND WIPE YOUR ROOM ON ARRIVAL ... Read more

I have cruised Princess many times. Ultimately, I was satisfied with my most recent experience on the Golden. Since being purchased by Carnival the overall quality of Princess has declined and continues to do so. The weather was ... Read more

This cruise out of San Francisco is beautiful from the begining - especially Alaska & Victoria. The Golden although dated is in very good shape. The begining two days were a little rough but not annoying. The service in cabins was ... Read more

Twelfth cruise, first time on Princess and first time to Alaska. No complaints at all, we all had a great time. Switched from anytime to early dining after reading reviews here, thank you. Waited a few days before making reservations at ... Read more

This cruise was a pleasant add-on to a visit to the West Coast. The Golden Princess looked good after its dry dock refurbishing in San Francisco. The Horizon Court sparkled with new tables, chairs, carpeting, and table ware. The food ... Read more

First, the good. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. The Room Steward and The Wait Staff were generally very good. The Princess land excursions were well organized, with one exception. On the tour of Alcatraz, we were told to ... Read more

We just returned home from our Golden Princess coastal cruise, also titled the Wine Country Cruise, up the Pacific from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Only our second time on Princess, but many, many more on other cruise lines so we have a ... Read more

This ranks as the worst ship management in my 16 cruises. Ship just returned from dry dock, but management was horrendous including: 1) 100+ waiting line for just in time dining the first three days or 20+ minutes to get a phone ... Read more

We took a three night cruise from Los Angeles to Ensenada, Mexico round trip. Check in went very smooth with no long line. We actually waited longer to get off the boar when we returned. We had a balcony room which was quite ... Read more

Decided to take the short 3 day cruise to help us achieve Elite status quicker and to celebrate my DH's birthday. We found the Golden to be a very clean ship, staff was excellent and we even ran into the room steward that we had last year ... Read more

We didn't go into our three day cruise to Ensenada with high demands. It was a quick getaway. We've sailed Princess many times and are Platinum level, so it wasn't our first rodeo. Quick note: the ship had just completed a 30-day ... Read more

The ship needed a total interior redo. carpets, couches, chairs, everything seemed well used. Even the exterior of the ship needed a paint job. Service was excellent from our room steward. The food was just average except for the specials ... Read more

We are veteran Princess cruisers and we have several more booked. This was not one of my favorite cruises but I still enjoyed it. We arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and took a taxi to our hotel, Hilton, and spent one night there. The ... Read more

We just returned from a 31 day cruise to South America. It certainly was below average for Princess. Shore excursions were horrible and the fact that the shore ex. department lie made everything worse. We has a pre paid visit to a ... Read more

Let me start by saying that I'm a Princess fan and I will certainly take another Princess cruise in the near future. The overall experience was very good, inevitably over the 2 weeks a few negative experience occur but I was most satisfied ... Read more
