I can only give this ship an average review because it did not meet up to the standards of our other Princess cruises. First of all, the food in the buffet was not very appetizing. We chose to have our lunch at the International Cafe where the food was a little better but only marginally so. There was just not enough variety in both venues. Our experience in the Dining Room was what we expected. The service was very good and the meals tasty. Secondly, the production shows were just OK. The singers were good but the dancers or more specifically the choreography was not very good. I fell asleep through all three shows. Nathan Than was very entertaining. We enjoyed both his shows. Thirdly, the ship is showing it's age. Our interior cabin was comfortable after they fixed the hot water control in the shower. However, the shower curtain was too short so water ran all over the floor. I just wiped myself down the whole week after that. There are some positives. The bed was very comfortable and Anne, our Cabin Steward was very helpful and she seemed to know when to show up and when to not disturb us. The Voice of the Ocean is not fair the way it is currently run. During the first day of auditions, there were 10 people who signed up. All 10 were very good singers. Unfortunately, there was not very many people in the Explorer Lounge and only a few voted. On the second night of auditions there were only 7 people that signed up to audition but there was around twice the number of people who watched and a lot more voted. You can see the imbalance. The auditions should be held over one night to select the finalists. Speaking of karaoke. The karaoke nights only lasted an hour. There were many who gathered up the nerve to sing but could not because there was not enough time. I think karaoke should be at least 1.5 hours long. I am a loyal Princess cruiser and this experience has not changed my mind about cruising with Princess. On future cruises, I will consider Princess Cruises but will no longer consider the Golden Princess. Read Less

Family get together trip. Cons: 1.First and most important contact with the suite: Found coins on the floor and some grains. Bed sheets with black spots and some hair. Red points in bathroom sink which looked like dried blood and toothpaste to me. Room attendant could remove them with his finger. Manager and room attendand both excused as too busy in first day..? 2. I received exipred beer (belgian blue moon) 2 bottles. Twice in the Piazza. Orible taste. 3. Waiters grab glasses on top side where you touch it with your lips. 4. 1000$ per day per couple and you still have to pay for water in the room or 300 yards walk if thirsty in the night. Not allowed to fill your bottle..just a principle 5. The free coffee is absolutely horrible. Waiters were laughing saying ''more starbuck cofee sir?''. 6. Crown grill restaurant was a joke. Waiter never come to refill wine glasses. Waiters looked exosted all over the ship. 7. Your payment card can be charged in anytime if staff know the number. Expect one hour a day from your precious vacation to dedicate to check your card. You may have some surprises. Your input is not necessary to make payments... 8. Bad smell here and there all over the ship. Pros: good food as taste and quality. Read Less

We chose this particular cruise as we both enjoy Sea days and the cruise experience. This particular cruise from Auckland to Vancouver had plenty of these with only six ports. Time seemed to fly by, with all the activities going on. The crew and staff were friendly and welcoming. Activities were varied and plentiful should we wish to take part. And the food .well that was great! We chose often to go more casual dining in the horizon or indeed catch a movie and have pizza. But we also went formal to anytime dining, in the dining rooms available to us, whereby the waiters would be friendly and helpful. We had a back to back cruise so continued on to Alaska, we found that the leg from LA to Vancouver changed the dynamics of the passengers as many left in LA and others came on for a short cruise to Vancouver, then new people joint the ship for Alaska, which changed again, so this was a new experience for us. However, this did not deter from a great trip Read Less
