Everyone has their own opinions. I wouldn't consider the OP's comments a "review" (subject of post.) It's more like a list of observations. After reading the list, I think I read all those comments from others on this board - maybe not about the Golden in particular, but about other Princess ships. I fully expect to experience some of these things next month on the Golden on our cruise to Alaska. Other things I know how to avoid by reading this and other boards!
What would be helpful is a complete review or a "live from" thread for the Golden. Then those of us that have an Alaska cruise in the next few months could really get a idea of what to expect.
