  3. Golden Princess
Staff amazing, very efficient and eager to please. Balcony cabin, very clean, comfortable and steward very helpful Dining staff were great, created a fabulous dining experience, were very professional, but always smiling a shame there wasn't the usual decorations and celebrations. Entertainment was ordinary not up to an acceptable standard. Activities during the day were non existent, very few lectures or speakers, library with no books or any where to read. Happy hour from 3to 4 in one bar too early and didn't encourage people to mingle as only a few could fit into the bar. Unfortunately from Sydney to Melbourne the majority of passengers disembarked and Princess sold the segment off. This resulted for existing passengers and crew having to put up with some very drunk, rude obnoxious people. They had glass stubbies in the pool, played loud music around the pools and had no regard for fellow passengers and were rude to staff.
