Golden Princess

Home for all the posts and related content for my Golden Princess cruise in 2014 – a three night Pacific coast sampler from Los Angeles (San Pedro) to Ensenada and back.

Overall, an interesting cruise although maybe not a way to see Princess at her best.  The winners – a surprisingly comfortable standard balcony cabin, The Sanctuary, the beverage package, International Café, the Crab Shack specialty experience, and Vines (the wine bar).  The losers – the food (overall), passenger behavior (uncouth), balcony design (noise), and disembarkation (chaos).
