My husband & I chose to stay in Puerto Rico for 5 nights after our wedding & then cruise home from San Juan to New york. The golden Princess was a great ship from start to finish. The check in was quick & easy, once we waited outside for about an hour. Upon entering the ship the staff was very friendly & welcoming. We were able to tour the ship & see our room. Our luggage arrived quickly & our cabin stuart was fantastic. He worked so hard everyday & night. He was so very accomadating & accessable.
My husband & I chose the freedom of choice for dinner. We were able to get a table every night w/a very minimal wait in all the restaurants. The service was ok, but the staff was extremely over worked. They had no time to take w/the passangers. Hurry & order. The exception to this was the restaurants you paid for. There were 2 that we were aware of. The italin restaurnt was excellent service fantastic & food awsome. Worth the extra $20 we paid. There was sooo much food at this restaurant that we couldn't eat our last course. The ship itself was beautiful. The shows were excellent. We looked forward to the shows nightly. The excursions were nice. Would travel again w/Princess lines. Highly recommend this ship. The only thing we weren't impressed with was the photography staff. Most were not very nice but there were alot of people on this ship.
