Golden Princess Cruise Review by kasr

6 people found this helpful
Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2016
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview (obstructed view)

This was the first half of 2 back-to-back cruises on Golden Princess. The embarkation process in Auckland was very quick (although there were only about 100 passengers joining).

Our cabin on Deck 6 was "Partially Obstructed View" but there was a good view of the sea through some steel framework for the life-rafts. The cabin was generally good, although the bathrooms are a bit tired, and the showers about as small as you could imagine (with clingy plastic shower curtains that were a bit short and kept depositing water outside if knocked).

The food was as good as I've had on 20+ cruises with excellent variety and choice. I don't recall one disappointing dish on the cruise. The entertainment was OK, although the 'rock' band were a bit mixed depending on what they were playing.

The only problem we had was getting clarity from Customer Relations on the process when we were continuing on the following cruise, but this was tempered by the fact that they had upgraded us to a balcony cabin four decks up!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Auckland

Auckland has a lively waterfront, and is well served by shops and public transport near the wharf.
