Ship Facts: Golden Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Golden Princess Deck Plans
Avoid the Buffet
Perhaps we were spoiled by our 1st cruse on Azamara, which was wonderful in every way & about the same price (Greek Isles) and included unlimited wine at lunch & dinner....

Cons: Limited hours for breakfast/lunch in the dining rooms meant we sometimes had to eat at the buffet, which usually had a line & there were rarely tables available inside. by the time we got a table, our food was cold & since it was Alaska, it was uncomfortable to eat outside or even in the enclosed pool area. The food at the buffet was only fair, and I was shocked they allowed people to serve themselves-saw a child drop a serving spoon on the floor & put it back in the food-ugh! I told an attendant, but she just took the spoon & left the food on the buffet. The coffee was terrible unless you paid for the cappucino/expresso. Ice Cream was inedible, although I saw plenty of people eating it. Room service breakfast was very limited.

Pros: Entertainment options were more varied, but the production shows were just as lame as on Azamara. The comedian was good, as was the piano player in the piazza & the rock band. The dance club was also good & was hopping with all ages. The big ship provided a smooth ride & no one got seasick. The food in the dining rooms & specialty restaurants was good quality & varied; service was very good. Bar drinks were inconsistent-some were great & others were really bad. The mini suite was a nice size with ample closet/storage space & the bathroom had a full size shower with great water pressure. Toiletries included Lotus spa eucalyptus shampoo, conditioner, shower gel & lotion. Bed & pillows were very comfortable.
