We were on the Golden Princess a couple weeks ago for our Alaska cruise. She really is a beautiful ship. The food was probably the best we have had on any cruise. And the entertainment was superb.
We ate in the Donatello dining room and enjoyed the 5:30 traditional dining. The tables in that dining room were nicely arranged and not crowded.
The best part is that the crew were very nice, helpful, and fun to talk to.
I think you will really enjoy the Golden Princess!
