Has anyone been on the Golden Princess since she has been out of drydock?

Also, does anyone know which staterooms are the ones that were just added during her refurbishment?

I have a friend who was on the first cruise out of drydock (lucky guy); I'll see if he has some photos to share.

As for the new cabins:

There are 7 new Window Suites on the starbord side of Fiesta Deck (deck 6), so-called because they have large picture windows but no balconies;

and on Sun Deck (deck 15) there are 8 new Penthouse Suites and 2 new Owner's Suites.

There are only a few photos of some of the refurbished areas of the ship, but here you are:

Thanks for the info! Also...did ALL the staterooms get refurbished or not? Hopefully Princess would have updated all of the cabins.

That I don't know. I followed the progress of the work on their website, but did not see any work being done on the cabins. I will ask my friend and get back to you.

I haven't heard back from my friend yet, but here are Princess' pictures of the work in progress:

My friend tells me the only change to the cabins was the addition of new flat panel T.Vs. And he was told the cabins now have Wi-Fi, but he did not take his laptop. He also said that even though the cabins had not been refurbished, they were in excellent shape.

Thanks Rick, and tell your friends thank you, too! Great pictures.

Thanks so much for all the info! I plan on doing a Hawaiian cruise for my honeymoon...but it won't be for another 1-2 years (have to wait for my fiance to be done in the Marines).

That will be one wonderful honeymoon!

I'm going to Hawaii on Golden Princess in October, 2010; so whichever of us goes first can post some first-hand up-to-date information :-)
