Intruders rather than welcome guest

Golden Princess Cruise Review by Bcrim

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Expect a boat that is not only old but is in disrepair. There were multiple railings missing with straps as replacements. Inside our cabin a drawer and ceiling light was broken. Later in the cruise our door lock broke and needed to be replaced. We even had trouble with the toilet flushing. It wasn’t stopped up, by the way. It just wouldn’t flush. All of this could have been overlooked if the staff throughout didn’t make you feel like intruders instead of a welcomed guest. We saw our cabin steward on the first day and never saw him again. Towels were left unchanged, dirty glassware was left in cabin. From the dinning room to the computer room staff hardly said hello let alone provide a service. We actually walked out of dinning when ignored for 20 minutes. Alaska, on their other hand is a must see! It was absolutely stunning. We loved Hubbard Glacier and took the shore excursion for a closer look. The day spent in Glacier bay was also breathtaking.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Fantastic trip even if a few of us got at little sea sick. Incredible glacier calving. We saw humpback whales, orcas, dolphins, bald eagles. Their crew was fantastic. Their enthusiasm was contagious. It was obvious they loved what they do.

Our driver, Michele, was awesome. She was so knowledgeable and knew where to pull over to get the best views while avoiding all the large tours.

Juneau

We did Juneau on our own. An easy taxi ride to Mendenhall Glacier then back to town gave us the best of both worlds. I wish there was more time. There was so much to see and do.

Lumberjack Show

the Lumberjack show was really enjoyable. I was totally surprised. It was a lot of fun.
