Golden Princess - not so golden...
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Buenos Aires
Hope you like "stews" - plenty of these available in the buffet. Towards the end of the cruise, More it became obvious that the ship was running out of fresh food, particularly when brown lettuce is being served in the buffet.
daily activities included throwing a ring over a bottle, or if you were really energetic you could hit a gold ball into a paper cup!!!!!!!
The evening entertainment in the theatre was...........what can I say, terrible, Must say that the production shows were good, but one of the shows presented was only half of the original show. Know this because I had seen it a few times on other princess cruises.
Be careful of what you send to the laundry. - I had two pieces of clothing ruined. One of the pieces had a hole burnt in it and the other was torn??????
Disembarkation. Went to the elite disembarkation lounge to be told that it was full, and told to go to another lounge where there was no water, tea or coffee available. A member of the staff came, eventually, and apologised but said that half of the passengers were elite members and there was not enough room in other lounge - why didn't they make the proper arrangements as they knew this before the ship sailed 30 days earlier. On disembarkation we then waited on an open walkway for over an hour before going thru customs. Less
Like the lay-out of the robe and bathroom. It is "out of the way" and makes the cabin easier to move around. Cabin small, but balcony makes up for that. Cabin always kept very clean.
