We pick this cruise because it was close to Australia and fairly short. This would help our 4 friends who are first time cruisers. If they didn't like it they would be home in a couple of weeks. We had great food, entertainment, helpful and friendly crew. Also the weather was ok, which helps. The staff in the lounges and dining rooms were really friendly and excellent at their jobs, some very funny. I went to the gymnasium for a couple of mornings, free and very well equipped. The food was very good and a lot of variety and quantity, we put a bit of weight on hehe. The embarkation and disembarkation was one of the best organised we have gone through. Leaving and arriving in Melbourne can be very chaotic but with the princess cruises' bus shuttle service to airport and train station made it very easy to get homeward. The four first timers with us were very happy with the experience of this cruise and thanked us for showing them the cruising life. An I like to say thanks to Golden Princess for making it easy for us to do that. Our friends are looking to do more cruising and maybe sell their caravan, they enjoyed it.

Cabin was great with the balcony. Good size television, if needed. Clean linen every day, and good comfy beds. Rooms cleaned every day. Excellent service.
