Default Golden Princess

I have been reading Cruise Mates for some time and I really enjoy all of the information that everyone has.
I have booked a cruise on the Golden for August of this year, I have never cruised on Princess before, have been on RCL, Celebrity and Carnival.
I would to know about the cabins, I have booked cabin # E732 VS, it is a aft cabin.
It will be our first time in Alaksa we can not wait!!!!

Thanks so much,

Barb

Your suite is at the very rear of the ship. We are also going to AK on Golden Princess- out of Seattle in August.

Enjoy

Thank you both for your post, I can not wait to see Alaska. I am also very excited to try Princess Cruise Line.
I am sure I will have many more questions coming up soon.
NAS-KARR I sure hope Alaska does not melt, at least until we can see it.

Thanks

Barb

Hi Barb, we travelled on Golden last year & instantly fell in love with her as a ship. She is so well designed that despite her massive size, you never feel that you are on a large ship.

We loved Skywalkers for panoramic views - okay so you see what you've passed rather than what's coming (head along Emerald deck for our fave spot for forward facing views), but what an experience.

We were so pleased with the ship, that we are trying Grand this year, which, I believe, is pretty much the same.

Sorry we can't compare with RCI or NCL, as we've only been on P&O, Cunard, and Fred.Olsen but the Princess experience certainly "floats our boat"

Have a great cruise,

Alan & Katrina

Default Aft of Ship

Last year went out of Seattle on the Sun Princess with a Suite which is in the back of the ship, and the view was great. I have been on the Golden and her sister ship the Grand, they are great ships with lots of room, service was outstanding. If you go early or stay a day after be sure to see the warf and Fish market.

Have been on the Sea to Alaska and the Golden in the Southern Caribbean. Both ships were great and you will have a great time.

Does anyone who was on the Sun out of Seattle last year (2006) have the Princess Patters for their cruise? I'd like to see them since we're going out of Seattle on the Golden this June.

Thank you,

Hi Todd: I have 2005 Patters out of Seattle. If you aren't able to get 2006 copies, let me know and I'll be happy to send 2005's.

Thank you for the offer! We already have 2005 Patters, and thought maybe some things changed from 2005 to 2006 so we are looking for 2006 Patters.

Thank you again,

I would like to thanks everyone for answering my post, sorry I have not been on CruiseMates for awhile.
We are going on our cruise August 18, 2007, I am so very excited. I found out on another site the VS#732 is 520 sf. sounds wonderful.
I know that most people say to fly in a day before, so I have a question. We can get a flight in the AM and be in Seattle by 10:30 am, should be ok?
Also does anyone know of a good hotel at the airport? We would like to stay in Seattle a couple of days after the cruise.

Thanks Again

Barb
