Golden Princess Cruise Review by mjh237
- Sail Date: April 2017
- Destination: South Pacific
- Cabin Type: Premium Balcony
My only gripe is the over-the-top focus on selling more and more to passengers during the voyage. It seemed like every day there were art and/or jewellery sales an auctions heavily promoted using brochures at the door, loud speaker announcements, and large displays taking over some public areas. Photographic staff insisted on taking pictures and were hard to shake off. Just about all the 'enrichment' sessions led to the selling of salon products or spa services.
That said, funnily enough we were not able to buy a bottle of port wine to take back to our room. Port was also not on the room service list. We thought it weird that when we actually wanted to buy something we couldn't.
We are new to cruising, and thinking about doing more as we head towards full retirement. We would travel with Princess again, but are keen to try other lines next.

The 'obstructed view' category is nothing to worry about, you don't even notice it. You get a slightly smaller width of view from inside the cabin, but if you go out onto the balcony and stand/sit beyond the small obstruction (which is about midway out on one side) there is no blockage to the view at all.
