Golden Princess Overview

Melbourne hosts Golden Princess until mid-April 2019. Golden Princess will complete nine 13-night roundtrip itineraries from Melbourne to New Zealand as part of Princess’ biggest ever New Zealand season. She will sport new features from a multi-million dollar refurbishment in May 2020. Multi-generational cruising is featured. Meanwhile, from May to September every year Golden Princess runs 7-night cruises each way between Whittier (the port for Anchorage) in Alaska, and Vancouver, cruising the Alaskan fjords. Transpacific cruises in September and April every year are very popular. Crossings stop at ports in Hawaii, French Polynesia and New Zealand. Golden Princess returns to Australia in September 2019, sailing out of Sydney and Melbourne, as well as Auckland. During her 2019-2020 season most itineraries circle New Zealand. Seven cruises out of Melbourne visit Tasmania and/or South Australia. 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. In mid-2020 Golden Princess will be refitted and transfer to the P&O Australia fleet.

Accommodation

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.

Entertainment

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.
