  1. thing of taking the ship sponsored excursion next month while in St Maarten any pros or cons on this any input greatly appreciated
  2. We will be sailing on the Golden Princess out of Melbourne. We received a message from Princess stating that our check-in time is 1:30 PM. The message further stated that they were doing a "progressive check-in" and to not show up before the assigned check-in time. The earliest check-in time shown for anyone is 1:00 PM. We wanted to have the embarkation lunch in the main dining room--which is only open from 12:00 to 1:30. We are in a suite, so normally we could board at any time once boarding begins. In order to clarify this I called Princess directly and was told that we could only check-in at our assigned time. When asked how we could go to the embarkation lunch (which would already be closed) I was told "I have no information about that." I would like to know what time check-in actually starts and whether suite passengers can board early.
  3. Does the golden have on demand movies in the cabin?
  4. My hubby likes draft beer rather than bottles or cans. What kinds are available on Golden Princess or any Princess ship if you think it would be the same and what is the price? Thanks
  5. What are the production shows that are available on the Golden Princess, in the theater performed by the princess dancers and singers?
  6. Is there soft serve ice cream (swirls or scoops) anywhere to be found on the Golden Princess?
  7. I know many ships have small viewing areas at the front or back through unmarked doors. Does Golden Princess have any? Heading to Alaska in May and was hoping for a quiet viewing area?
  8. HI... Just wondering if anyone knows what the power points on Golden Princess are. My "preferred" hair dryer is a 240V... afraid it might not work if it is a 110V point. Thanks! Michelle
  9. Hi...If you have done the Golden Glassblowing Experience in Skagway, can you tell me how large the resulting glass blown object will be (approximately)? I'd like to bring a box and packing material so that I can safely bring my object home. I'll have to fly home from Los Angeles. Thanks!!!
  10. I'm curious about the doorways aft on Golden Princess. For instance deck 11 as well as others there seems to be a doorway to nowhere on each side of the ship. Is that to a stairway for crew. It doesn't appear to be a secret deck to go and view the scenery as I first thought? Or perhaps a storage room? Anyone know?
  11. Hello. Going on Golden Princess to Alaska from Vancouver in May. Travel Summary says boarding time is 12 noon and ship leaves at 4:30. I always thought you could get on the ship earlier than that and was planning on arriving at 10:30 to 11:00. Would it actually be that late before they start boarding? Thanks
  12. Just returned from a B2B. More detailed report to follow. However, there was NOTHING wrong with the condition of the ship. I saw no ceiling leaks anywhere, no significant repair issues. There was much cleaning, re-varnishing etc. going on, particularly on port days. OK, our shower needed a little "tweaking" as it would suddenly go cold in the middle of use and our fold out couch should have been replaced some time ago, but that was it. I read all the negatives here prior to cruising and saw nothing that they reported. I would not hesitate to cruise this ship again! Most traveled passenger had 488 days on the first leg and over 800 on the second leg.
  13. The 4th berth in the MD category of mini suites on Golden Princess is described as an upper berth. The 3rd berth is the sofa bed. Does anyone know if the upper berth is above the beds or the sofa? Thanks!
  14. Hi ... I will be travelling on Golden Princess in January for 2 weeks. I am hoping someone can tell me what the onboard self serve laundry charges are like please? Thank you in advance
  15. We are thinking of a Cruise on this ship next fall and noticed that it was refurbished earlier this year. We love this ship but wonder if any changes were done to the dancing venues, specifically the Wheelhouse Bar dance area. We were just on the Royal and there is virtually no dance area left there and hoping that is not the case with the Golden. Merry Christmas everyone!
  16. Hi! 2 couples sailing 8/14/19. We originally had a DIY trip planned but recently decided to do Southern Glacier from Anchorage to Vancouver. Cabin selection is limited since we are late booking. Price isn't a huge concern but looking for best experience. We have only cruised Med and Caribbean and have enjoyed aft balconies as cabin of choice. However, our traveling companions want Portside which I right next to the elevators on deck 9. I have read that ship will turn so that both "sides" get good look. Will aft views be good or better on port or starboard? With all that said, cruising AK is a completely new experience so I am conflicted trying to choose between the following: Deck 9 D 403/405 or D 414/416 Club Mini $1932 base Deck 15 S705/707 Premium Suite Club dining $2691 Deck 10 C751 Vista Suite Club dining $2609 Deck 10 C748 Penthouse Suite Club dining $2941 Will our friends feel slighted if they are in Vista and we are in PH? Appreciate your help in advance!
  17. In 2020 Princess is using Golden Princess for a 14 night round trip La to LA ,Alaska cruise .This cruise interests us For those that have recently sailed on the Golden Princess what are your thoughts for the pros & cons . We appreciate all information as we would book a balcony cabin . Also what are the best balcony cabin locations for a Alaska cruise on this ship Thanks in advance for your help
  18. We are researching a transpacific cruise for April, 2019, and saw the Golden Princess cruise. The itinerary is wonderful, but the reviews for the Golden Princess not so much! Is this ship really in tough shape? Thanks!
  19. Considering a Golden Princess cruise as part of an Alaska cruisetour next summer Never been on the Golden, looked at the deck plans...no Crooners? no aft adult pool ? not sure that matters much for Alaska, but still see Outriggers bar for the aft view - EDIT - ok see the Terrace Pool on Aloha deck now... Caribe deck deluxe balcony a good choice - if so, what side for north to south cruise? Is Golden a good choice - Late July 2019 cruise
  20. We have a cruise booked on the Golden Princess in March 2019 and will have to pay by the end of the week. We have never cruised with Princess before and are a little concerned as the reviews I have seen on social media as well as on here are stating that the ship has a few issues. I have also read some great reviews!! A couple of weeks ago there was a fire in the communications equipment area and one passenger stated that they had no internet/TV etc for 9 days. We don't live on the net, but my husband has a business that he has to check in on regularly. Also, have heard lots of comments re water dripping from the ceiling and also sewage smells in public areas as well as wet mouldy carpet. As you can imagine, as it is our first Princess cruise, we don't want a lemon. We believe in making our own fun and have a Club Mini Suite booked and we are in our early 60s. Anyone who has been on the cruise in October and November 2018, we would appreciate your honest feedback.

  22. We are looking at doing or first cruise and have our eye set on heading south from Anchorage on the Golden Princess, leaving on July 6th. The price and dates work for us better then the other options we've looked at. How does the ship compare to some of the other options? I've read reviews about leaks/wet spots, is that a Golden issue, or a cruise ship issue. It is a couple hundred dollars pp cheaper, is that because of the condition of the ship? Anything we should know before we book?
  23. I booked a mini suite (E728), which is above the Vista Lounge for our Alaska cruise this coming summer. My question is....did I make a mistake? Is there a noise problem with this cabin? I have heard the Alaska cruises are a little more sedate and not as much night life, so I am hoping this won't be an issue. Has anyone stayed in this cabin and can share their experience?
  24. I am currently booked on the Golden on a Northbound Alaska cruise next summer, I am in Baja B519 but can get a room on Aloha any thoughts or opinion on our current room or why the Aloha deck is better, I know the Caribe deck balconies are bigger but they cost more?
