This was the first trip with passengers for the world’s largest and newest sailing ship, a 5 masted luxury ship. It is beautiful to look at and we’ll appointed, but has no lifts, some staircases are spiral and quite narrow. Some features such as the marina deck which drops down at the rear were not operating.

Food was well prepared, although on the first couple of nights plates were cold! Service was pretty slow and the menu limited. Hopefully this will improve as it goes into service. Wine is included at meals but otherwise alcoholic drinks have to be purchased.

The balcony cabin has a luxurious feel to it , a good supply of cupboards and drawers but no full length hanging space and the bathroom is well appointed with a spa bath and bidet.

Hello Graham, Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear you too found the sail away a special moment, Golden Horizon truly is something! As a start up company we are grateful for...

Cabin Review

Dark panelling, plenty of cupboards no long hanging space. Quality bed and bedding, luxury bathroom with spa bath.
