Another good cruise with Princess. But annoyed with dining times.

Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Buenos Aires
We boarded ship at Buenos Aires on March 1, after having 10 days in BA and Iguazu. We booked cruise direct with Princess website, we had a balcony cabin aft on Aloha deck.

Embarkation was easy, being Elite with Princess we were on board by 12.30pm after half hour wait. Cabin was fine, standard Princess set up. Cabin early morning and late at night was noisy from above, being directly beneath Horizon Court, heard trolleys being rolled around. Our Cabin Steward introduced himself first afternoon and was very good throughout the trip.

We booked many shorex with the ship and they were all fine, well organised and reasonable value for money. Food was good, no complaints, plenty of choices and good quality and portions. Waiter service excellent. However I was annoyed that after booking traditional first sitting for dinner, times were set back to 5.45pm for first half of cruise then for second half 5.30pm, way to early ! No communication there. I am a Coeliac- gluten free More and got good assistance at meal times.

Entertainment was good with singers, dancers and guest performers. We encountered some rough seas but ship handled it OK. Happy with crew but never saw the Captain around the ship. Golden Princess is in good condition and I would sail on her again. Less
