Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

Golden Princss showing some wear and tear. Disappointed in both Sabatinis and the Crown Grill this trip, food wasn’t worth the upcharge, had better steak in the main dining room, lobster tail was terrible. Sabatinis menu was a laminated piece of paper. Horizon court was pretty good. Overall staff was very efficient and friendly, very noticeable. Princess theater shows were pretty good, voice of the ocean finale and comedian were very good. Cruise director John and entertainment director Tim cracked us up. The show Hollywood Hiccups had us rolling on the floor. Cabin bedsheets were stained and dirty when we turned down the bed the first night, you could scrape stuff off them. Took 2 phone calls, a trip to the front desk and about 45 minutes to get them changed. Pet peeve of mine, Princess asks if we want robes in our cabin, fourth cruise in a row where we don’t have them. Have waited at times til the 3rd day of a 7 day cruise to get them. Don’t offer them if we can’t have them. We have friends we travel with and get adjoining cabins, they always have their robes. It’s become a running joke between us. In Ketchikan did a 90minute city walking tour, advertised as 90 minutes, when the tour began we were again told it was 90 minutes. After 60 minutes we were told this is the end of the tour.
