Ship Facts: Golden Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Golden Princess Deck Plans
Hawaii on the Golden
The Golden Princess is due to go into Dry Dock for an overhaul. We were very pleased that the Atrium had been updated on its last dry dock and the Piazza was abuzz with people day and night. The International Cafe staff, especially Joanne, were wonderful and attentive. Although there were not enough tables and chairs for the amount of passengers who were wanting to visit.

We played mini-golf almost every day, and this is one area that will be upgraded next month. The carpet was very worn and it made for a very challenging round of golf.

We were pleased that Sky Walkers was still there, as we love to sit up in the lounge during sail-aways. Although we believe that this will be removed soon as well. Dwight, waiter, from Grenada was a delight, he found us a seat every night and made sure that we well looked after during the Platinum/Elite Lounge hours.

We had traditional fixed seating (late) for dinner each evening and our waiters, Jayson and Rochell were attentive and always remembered which wine and bar drinks we ordered, so they were always at the ready. The Head Waiter, Phillipe, was always around to make sure we were getting what we needed and every time we saw him, no matter where on the ship, he remembered our names and made us feel great.

Dave, our 'preferred' Trivia Host was funny and patient. He handled very difficult 'trivia experts' very well and kept everything on an even keel ;)

We loved the English Pub meals in the Crown Grill and the English Pub night in the Explorers lounge.

This was our 21st cruise with Princess and we keep returning because of the staff and the consistency in product and services. It's like going back to your favourite hotel each time we step on a Princess Ship.
