Hope everyone is doing well!
Wanted to share for those that have never been on a cruise or on a Princess ship some insight to what it looks like onboard. You will note from the photos that it looks as if we had the ship to ourselves. No, over two thousand people were onboard, but when you first go on board for some reason everyone seems to go to the food venues to eat. Great time to take photos of the ship!
Let’s see, how many remember the “Love Boat”? This long-running television series introduced millions of viewers to the concept of vacationing at sea as it was filmed aboard a Princess Cruise Ship. Princess has a fleet of 16 ships that sail all over the world. We are on the Golden Princess which has 17 decks, a passenger capacity of 2,600, 4 pools, and many places to eat (3 main dining rooms, Sabatini's – Italian restaurant, Crown Grill – Steak and seafood, International Café, array of seafood, Crab Shack; Vines – Wine Bar, Horizon Court – Buffet restaurant, Trident Grill – Burger & hot dog grill, Prego Pizzeria – Poolside pizza, Sundaes ice cream bar and 24-hour room services).
Showrooms/Lounges: Princess Theater, Vista Show Lounge, Explorer's Lounge, Wheelhouse Bar, Skywalkers Nightclub, Player's Cigar Bar, Promenade Lounge and Bar.
Passenger Services: The Sanctuary, Movies Under the Stars poolside screen, Lotus Spa and Fitness Center, Piazza-style Atrium, Kid's and Teen's Centers, Wedding chapel, Grand Casino, Lawn Court – golf putting and lawn games, Sports Deck, Internet Café, Library, Art Gallery, Photo/Video Gallery, Duty-free Boutiques, Video arcade, Passenger Services Desk, Shore Excursions Desk and Medical Center.
