Golden Princess - 3 nights ex Los Angeles, USA
All aboard the Golden Princess for 3 unforgettable nights on this Coastal Cruise exploring Alaska & Nth.America Pacific . Your ship departs from Los Angeles and visits 2 ports in 2 countries before returning to Vancouver. This 4 star cruise from Princess Cruises has forward departures, but is unfortunately sold out for this departure.
|Day||Date||Port of call||Arrival||Departure|
|1||Tue 29 Apr 2014||Los Angeles, USA||4.00pm|
| Los Angeles, also called LA, or the City of Angels, is situated in southern California, and as the home base of Hollywood is the Entertainment Capital of the world. There is so much to do in this famous city, such as visit LA's most popular beach Santa Monica that offers ocean activities, shopping, street performers and more, or simply investigate the fantastic shopping venues. Helicopter tours are now becoming extremely popular, as one gets to see beaches, movie star homes, the Hollywood sign, downtown, and all of the attractions through the eyes of an expert.
Hollywood certainly attracts millions of visitors each year as there is always the opportunity of catching a glimpse of a few famous personalities. Then there are the well-known landmarks such as the Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood and Highland entertainment centre, Madame Tussaud's showcase of celebrities, and the Walk of Fame. After all, who of us have not been made aware of the stars on the sidewalk? Beverly Hills with its chichi stores, boutiques, and eateries where one can soak up its glitz and glamour, is also a popular attraction. Possibly the most loved destinations are Disneyland and its sister park California Adventure.
The amazing movie studio tour and world-class amusement park all rolled into one - Universal Studios - presents what life is like on a movie back lot, and is a ‘must-see’ for many. Attractions like the USS Iowa and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library offer something for the entire family. Shop at retail meccas like The Grove and the Beverly Centre, or browse eclectic shopping neighborhoods and bargain outlets. Recreational activities include spectacular beaches and hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, or relax at one of LA’s top spas. The unique architecture pf the Los Angeles Philharmonic attracts many.

|4||Fri 2 May 2014||Vancouver, Canada||7.30am|
| Vancouver is a sophisticated coastal city located to the south of British Columbia, Canada. The city is linguistically and ethnically diverse as reflected in the fact that 52 percent of its inhabitants do not speak English as their first language. Ranked highly in worldwide ‘liveable city’ rankings for many years and being surrounded by nature’s scenery at its best, makes tourism its second largest industry. This beautiful city brims with attractions such as Vancouver's Olympic Village located on the SE side of False Creek, which offers stunning views of the city's downtown skyline and Coastal mountains.
The city is also renowned for its unique dining experiences, boutiques, and shopping districts such as Antique Row, and exotic Chinatown. Don’t miss the historically renovated Gastown - the oldest downtown neighborhood - filled with great souvenirs, good food, and Native Arts and Crafts. If you are looking for funky, hip stuff, then visit Commercial Drive and Central Granville. To relax, visit the delightful Stanley Park, resplendent with its deep forest, totem poles, and scenic promenades. Its nickname Hollywood North comes as no surprise, as it is the third- largest film production centre in North America.
Of great assistance to visitors is the very modern Tourism Vancouver Visitor Centre. Here one finds helpful volunteers to find pictures and maps for all kinds of locations, including all the restaurants, attractions, activity information, and coupons. Also available is the public transportation map, which is helpful to get around the town if you want to go outside of walking distance, and don't want to use rental car or cab. Also popular with visitors are: Granville Island that offers a feast for the senses; Grouse Mountain, especially in the snow season for skiing and snowboarding; and Whistler, a luxurious slice of paradise just a two hour drive away.
In September 2015 cross the Pacific with Golden Princess from San Francisco to Sydney (28 nights). Then until April 2016 sail out of Melbourne to Tasmania, the Pacific islands, and New Zealand. Meanwhile, until August 2015 take 10-night cruises to the Inside Passage of Alaska out of San Francisco. Princess Cruises organises on-shore tours that can be booked before sailing or during the cruise. For some voyages pre- and post-cruises tours are available to extend your stay in major ports.
There are six types of cabin and 35 price categories: insides, outsides (some obstructed), balcony cabins, outside mini-suites (with and without balconies) and balcony suites. Cabins are roomy and nicely appointed, with satellite TV access to major channels. Standard cabins are practical and attractive, many have additional upper berths for children, and some have inter-connecting doors. The larger the stateroom, the more additional facilities. All guests receive turndown service, chocolates on pillow at night, bathrobes and amenity kits, and complimentary room service on most items 24 hours a day. There are no single cabins, 26 wheelchair-accessible cabins, and some cabins accommodate families of three and four.
Food and Dining
Traditional dining in Canaletto Dining Room offers you a pre-selection of one of two seating times throughout the cruise. Anytime Dining (sitting when and with whom you choose) is offered in Donatello and Bernini Dining Rooms. Both serve five course meals changed daily, with chefs inducted into the prestigious Chaîne des Rôtisseurs gastronomic society. Sabatini’s serves Italian cuisine, Crown Grill serves steak and seafood, and there’s Crab Shack (all for an extra cover charge). Dress code is smart casual, and on cruises longer than three days dress for a formal night for every week of sailing. Breakfast and lunch are provided in an open seating arrangement. (Of course a continental breakfast can be delivered to your stateroom, and there is a stateroom menu.) Passengers booked in cabins with balconies can order several special, romantic meals to be served restaurant-style on the verandah - Ultimate Balcony Dining. Order special dietary requests before sailing.
As for entertainment, there is more than can be squeezed into a week. The Princess Theatre is two decks high, featuring glamorous production shows every second or third evening. The Vista Show Lounge with its three stages presents cabaret, and doubles for lectures, bingo and horse-racing during the day. Explorer’s Lounge hosts cabaret acts and dance bands. Movies first-run feature films pool-side at Under the Stars on Sun Deck. There are lounges with live music and dancing. A new feature is the new three-deck-high street-cafe-style Piazza, for sipping coffee and watching the occasional passing performer. Stroll around and shop duty-free, or check your email at the Internet Café.
