25 days from Beijing to Sydney on the Golden Princess was the worst cruise we have ever done.From day one we had cold water in our bathroom complaining didn't work the only way we could get hot water was to leave the shower running for up to 45 minutes and the constant daily charges added to our account for drinks after paying $3000 for a drinks package was annoying to say the least.The food in the Crown Grill was excellent the food elsewhere was very average and the entertainment was nonexistent.Every day there were complaints about cold water water leakes and the food.This was the first trip we have done on the Golden Princess and definitely the last it was very disappointing and a low point in our Asian holiday.If your thinking about the Golden Princess for your next cruise you should look elsewhere this ship needs to be completely refurbished
