  3. Golden Princess
This was our 3rd NZ cruise with Princess. Previously on the Dawn Princess. We had a mini suite on this cruise after experiencing one on Pacific Jewel. We were terribly disappointed when we entered our mini suite on Golden. It was so small. We were also not real happy with the floor plan of the whole ship. I have been on more than a dozen cruises and really found the Golden Princess difficult to get to all areas of the ship. However, once over the shortfalls, we did enjoy our trip. Smokers beware, the smoking area is also very small and limited on this ship. Don't take cigs with you as they are cheap over the bar. BUT the food was excellent in all eating areas. Princess is my preferred cruiseline, but I wouldn't go on Golden Princess again. Fortunately it is going to P&O end march. Pull your socks up Princess.

Good time few dissappointments

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Not what we have previously experienced in a mini suite. Too small.
