Default Recent Golden Princess Cruiser's???

Isn't there anyone out there who has sailed the Golden Princess this fall? Still looking for some good waiter recommendations for our cruise on Sat. We have Personal Choice Dining? Have always enjoyed tradtional in the past - a good wait staff can make or break your dining experience.
Thanks

I sailed on the Golden Princess 10/19/2002 for the last (a 5 day) Canada / New England sailing before she went to the Caribbean.

The ship and staff were top notch, I had no complaints. Our waitress was in the Traditional Dining area. She was excellent but I believe that she stays in the Traditional Dining.

Have a great time!

Hey, CA, just being curious, which dining room do they use for the Traditional dining?

I chose that for the Thanksgiving cruise as I did not think the PC would work too well when I'm traveling alone!

We were on the Golden 10/26, and had personal choice. In general, wait staff was good. The best we had were Jenny and David (from South Africa) in the Bernini dining room. Have a great cruise.

Thanks for all your input.
Evelyn, did you find the Bernini Dining room to be as good at the Donatello? I've heard in the past the Donatello was the best - not sure why - poster didn't say.

OK, I'll have to look up the name for the dining room, but it is the one under the Vista Lounge that takes a map to get to!

The food is the same in the 3 dining rooms. Bernini and Donatello are the personal choice dining rooms. The Canaletto dining room located under the Vista lounge is for traditional dining only. The Bernini dining room seems less crowded because of its location, it is directly under the Donatello. This was our 4th cruise on the Golden and we have always been satified with personal choice and the wait staff.

I will tell you why the Donatello dining room is the best: The headwaiter, Oscar, is a maniac, and he's adorable! To quote: "I will take care of you, darling." Anybody who tells me that is soaring to the top of my chart! I nearly left my husband for him. (J/K!)
