Overview

Last updated in April 2018, Golden Princess provides its 2,600 passengers with a bevy of new features, including a piazza-style atrium, the child-free Sanctuary retreat, a poolside movie screen and more. Cruisers can expect a high level of service thanks to the low crew-to-guest ratio (the ship features 1,100 staff members). Although the ship offers youth clubs for kids ages 3 to 17, most of the entertainment and activities on board are geared toward adults.

Still, most previous cruisers complimented the selection and quality of the cuisine at the 11 dining venues, which range from three main dining rooms to casual fares like burgers and pizza. The ship is outfitted with four specialty venues, including fresh seafood at the Crab Shack and Italian specialties at Sabatini's.

Another major selling point is the ship's cabins. Interior staterooms occupy between 158 and 162 square feet, and they come outfitted with flat-screen TVs and minifridges. Larger Mini-Suites and Suites span 323 to 932 square feet and include two flat-screen TVs, a furnished balcony and a fully equipped bathroom with tubs and showers.

In 2018-19, Golden Princess spends most of its time in the Pacific, with departures from Los Angeles, Auckland, Sydney, Vancouver and more.
