So very disappointing, have travelled princess many times, this will have to be the worst, the ship stinks of sewage in lotus/gym area. Days after there was a fire on board now Televisions Inc main big screen not working, no internet working and wont be working until the end of voyage rumor has it, the Tv's don't be working for weeks. The captan leaving ship midd voyage. A lot of shows have been canceled due to fire etc. This ship should be retired renovated. If traveling on this ship ask the questions first.

Soooo worth doing this itinerary. And from this trip, don't not do a Princess cruised just because the ship is old, remember it is Princess.

Buyer beware on the Golden “leaky” Princess. The ship is being moved to P&O Australia after the Alaska run next year, and I feel that the budget for improving the ship has been cut to just maintaining it. Every time it rained, buckets came out to catch the water leaks on all of the decks. Their is a moldy smell on deck 9 between rooms 329 to 425 on the starboard side, and other passengers spoke of smells on the decks. The cruise from LA to Sydney was fantastic with great food, entertainment, and crew members. I have rated the cruise at 5 for that reason, not taking off for the old tried ship.

Great 2wks seeing Alaska and the stunning surrounds.

Travelled as a large family group with young kids, would definitely do another cruise with princess - great options for food at all times, and plenty of things going on. didn't use the swimming pools very much as the weather was a bit cold. ship has been around a while and is a bit aged but its still in great condition and spotlessly clean.

Magical Cruise

Absolutely magical cruise from start to finish! The food was the highlight with the cruise staff running a close second. We never felt crowded on the ship (except for maybe the early production shows).

Great itinerary, but it ends there. Have cruised on her several times before and very disappointed. Ship had just come out 2 weeks dry dock in Singapore and many, many problems. First and foremost air conditioning could not keep up the pace. Problems with flooding, and we were locked out of our cabin 6 times. A lot of crew ending contract in Japan, and we felt that. Very disappointing from this Elite passenger. Having said that, the itinerary was great, and we loved every port. We then stayed on in Japan for another 12 days for exploring. Wonderful country.

Best weather ever in Alaska!

Great itinerary, great entertainment staff, excellent service in the club class dining room, very convenient embarkation and disembarkation port. The suite could use some modernization and upgrading - did not feel luxurious enough for the price. Also, our attendant acted more like a janitor than a concierge.
