We went on the Caribbean Princess in July 2004. It was great (read our review at http://www.cruisereviews.com/Princes...nPrincess1.htm
) but very similar to the Golden (same meals and everything). It was very crowded at the night time activities. We had to leave some of them early to grab seats at other ones, just to be able to see the show.
Let me know if you have ane specific questions after reading my review.
