Extremely disappointing
"We have a "cousins" get together every year and two years ago we decided to make it special this year. When choosing a cruise we wanted to leave from Melbourne, so we chose This cruise. As an elite Captains circle..."Read More

I am really impressed with the way the Captain and crew of the Golden Princess responded to constantly-changing circumstances while we were on our New Zealand cruise. Our captain kept us up-to-date as much as he could with regular, friendly, well-explained announcements whenever new news or regulations came in. Although plans seemed to change daily, the focus was always on the well-being, comfort ...

Hi all My wife and son and myself choose this cruise as it left from Melbourne our home city easier we thought. We found the ship to be leaking and the age group on boat old honestly if you didn't have a walking frame or walking stick or even a ride on bike you felt out of place no offense to anyone just not our thing. As this was the age demagraffic the activities on board suited them ...

One of the attractions of this cruise was that it left and returned to Melbourne, which saved us the trip to Sydney. We were a group of six - myself and husband and our 2 adult kids and their partners. We wanted a value for money, easy holiday to New Zealand and that is exactly what we got. Golden Princess certainly has no frills and is looking her age but overall she does her job well. This ...

I actually was gifted the cruise. It was great to have a few days sailing to find out and deal with seasickness. After that the cruise was great. The captain was very helpful with announcements when and if needed. We missed the Fiordlands and Akaroa due to the weather. It was great to see that they were looking after the safety of their passengers. When returning from shore excursions the captain ...

I chose the cruise because I was told that it would be an unforgettable experience which was mostly true except for the fact that I was unable to enjoy some of the entertainment for lack of proper hearing aid assistive devices. The ship and cabins were meticulously clean and very well maintained. The TV in the cabin could be better. There was a variety of food but it could have included ...

Golden Princess is due for a refurbishment. Common areas aren’t bad but the cabins need work. The fun part about this ship’s configuration is that there are two separate areas for shows. Occasionally, we were able to see two interesting shows in one evening. Food: was good, never any issues. My wife is gluten intolerant and this was not a problem because she would order her meals a day ahead ...

Loved this cruise being in school holidays meant more friends could come. The food was probably to good as put on weight. Service in dining room we attended was fantastic. The buffet was the best organised of all my cruises Room service from regular staff fantastic. Entertainment, was excellent but probably meant Theatre was to small and often full. Comedians were funny singing and dancing shows ...

We wanted to do a cruise from Melbourne to Adelaide and this 6 night cruise fitted our needs perfectly. Embarkation in Melbourne was the best I have ever seen in all my years of cruising. It was so efficient that we were on the ship within 15 minutes. Other ports in the Princess World could model their embarkation strategy on this Melbourne experience. ie Los Angeles, New York. We ...
