Golden Princess Cruise Review by david35

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2018
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

In dire need of recharging our batteries after a very stressful year, wanted something that would let us have time before we needed to start seeing ports of call and this ftted the bill perfectly.

Cannot fault any of the crew on this ship they were all awesome and did a wonderful job. they really made the whole experience for us pleasureable.

We did not do many shows as we needed rest and relaxaton, picked the perfect cabin..

We were surprised at how many people who were using/needing some kind of aids were determined to use the tenders to go into ports as this cruise was 85% tenders, and the weather wasn't always good,

The staff patience was unbelieveable and attetion to detail was flawless weappreciated everything they did.

We are so looking forward to booking another cruise with princess, it will be easy to find something that wil impress

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB D604

Just what the Dr ordered, yes the cabin needs some minor work if yu want to be picky, but the cabin steward does such a wonderful job you can over look the flaws, it certainly does not stop you enjoying the cruise.
