Hello dodonnell72; I am booked on the October 13th Golden Princess sailing to Hawaii. We did this cruise three years ago on Island Princess and loved it so much we are going back. We also were on Golden Princess the same year to the Mexican Riviera.
The best news is Golden Princess recently underwent a major reburbishment, and I hear from friends that have been on her that she is absolutely resplendent
In case you missed it, here
is a link to a photo journal that was kept of her recent drydock.
I've started a roll call for the 10/13 sailing; we could chat further about the ship and itinerary there, if you care to.
