First off I would just like to say that this was the first cruise that my family and I took. There is no complaints with anything, the cruise was excellent! The food and services were all great! The staff in every area of the boat was helpful, interesting with stories and comments, and overall you could tell they were happy with their job. The only issue that others may have a problem with is the waiting time when we arrived outside the ship, waiting to check into the ship. This was in San Juan and we waited for a while, in humid and hot weather, in order for them to space their customers out when checking them onto the ship. On all the islands the people living there and the tour guides were all very informative to us visitors. Our experience was not very great with Barbados. Our tour guide was not pleasant and the island was not particulary our favorite. My family and I took my tours, which I would recommend because it gives you an opportunity to ask questions and see what is on the island available to tourists. I reccomend the Jolly Roger, on either island is its available, if you want to have fun, see the island, and drink a lot of rum punch! We also participated in snorkeling. Your experience will vary with which island you go to, just be aware that salt water is really wicked!

Other than that, the cruise was great. There was constantly things to do on the ship to keep you busy. Again everyone working on the ship tried their hardest to make it an enjoyable experience for all their customers. My final comment is that the cruise that we booked wasn't long enough for us. At the end, we had wished that we had booked a longer cruise to enjoy. We have already booked another cruise with Princess for the upcoming year! Thank you to Princess and all the staff on the Golden Princess for making our vacation one of the best.
