Where to start. This was my second cruise with Golden Princess the first one being ok. The second one was absolute tedium. The cabin balcony door didn't secure properly and even after telling the room steward nothing was done about it. Despite 14 months passing between the first and second cruise the restaurant menu was the same. There must have also been a budget cut to the entertainment as there was half the amount of live shows. One of the performers who does a Freddie Mercury show was extremely boring and loved to shove the microphone in people's faces despite them being bored and disinterested. I knew there was a reason the front row was empty! Had a peek for his second show and half the theatre was empty! The other musical acts were dull however it was funny to watch the singer of one of the bands try and hit on women every single night. Obviously Princess Cruises haven't caught up with the #metoo movement! Shore excursions were a waste of time and money. Boring and pointless. Most of the people onboard are quite old and it can get pretty nasty watching them fight over seats. I will never sail with them again.

Boring, couldn't wait for it to end!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Hahndorf Walking Tour
    Town was good. Would have preferred to spend more time in Hahndorf or even be let loose in Adelaide itself. Instead time was wasted by driving us around fancy suburbs showing us residential areas. Exhilarating!
