Golden Princess to Hawaii
Embarkation: Los Angeles
We had absolutely the BEST waiter on the ship. His name is Arthur Javier and he is in the Bernini Dining Room. Gabriella, his assistant waiter, was great as well. Our room steward was Michael on the Dolphin Deck and he was great also.
The food wasn't the best but definitely above average. We didn't go to the two speciality restaurants because we didn't think paying $25 a person would be worth it.
The spa and health club area was really good.
I really didn't like the fact that smoking in the casino was More allowed. To me that is unacceptable.
The kids club was really good. My 10 year old loved it.
The one thing I thought was bad was the constant selling of various things. The staff tries to sell everything on board. Every time you turn on the tv you have the staff hawking art, jewelry, clothing, etc. It's pretty pathetic.
And the reason this cruise goes to Ensenada for 4 hours is so Princess can call this an "international
cruise" and pay their employees a lot less than if it went from L.A. to Hawaii. Then Princess would have to pay standard American minimum wage and to me that's really cheesy. Less
