Old Ship for Long Trips

Golden Princess Cruise Review by Loco 1

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2017
  • Destination: Transpacific
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We chose this cruise over a year ago and surprisingly Princess had double booked our Cabin from Auckland to Sydney.

The ship stunk of Sewerage on Deck 7 by the Vista Lounge and they had problems with water leaks there also.

The International Cafe in the centre was hard to get a seat in as the ships average age of passengers was 76 so we were told by staff. There is an " Elite " Class on Board who think they Own the ship and all the seats on it.

Meals were substandard compared to other Cruise lines and the Entertainment was also poor with Hypnotist and Magic shows. Some of the passengers even went to sleep in the theater.

The Cruise Director Tim left the ship in Honolulu and we were left with his Deputy who was hopeless at the job.

The Front desk staff were rude and didn't try to help at times also.

Sorry this is a negative review but we will Never sail again with this Old Peoples Home as there are far far better Company's sailing the 7 Seas and many of them don't have this Class System that Princess has.

Cabin Review

Cabin BD B707

Nice cabin and Steward. The floor needs rewelded around the top of air conditioning on the downstairs cabin as it goes bang when walked on at certain times.

The balcony is good also, beds are also good and comfortable.
