We've done this cruise several times, though not on the Grand. If you love sea days you're going to LOVE this cruise.

You're first day out, and last day back may see some choppy seas.

We did this on the Island Princess (our first Princess cruise). We have been on the Grand after that.

Lots of relaxing sea days over and back. Our best two excursions were horseback riding and a visit to the Arizona and "MO".

Our cabin was on the Starboard side and had good vies while entering and leaving the ports.

Also, there is a lava show one night from Kilauea.

Golden to Hawaii 11-26-08
 
Irish Shark......Also Irish here........anyway, since you've been to the islands several times, do you know how readily available "leis" are to purchase? Hubby and I celebrating Anniversary aboard, and wanted to purchase his and hers "leis" instead of the usual corsage etc.

Any suggestions or info greatly appreciated.

IIRC, every port had them. "Street" vendors hawking them. I did not buy one and I have no idea what they were selling them for.

Sorry :cry:

We have cruised Hawaii RT San Diego two times, but both times on HAL, which we love.

Yesterday TA/friend calls and asked us to join them on the Golden P.
April 11, 2010. I know, I know, it's a long way off, but I like to dream. :roll:

We have never sailed Princess, but our TA is Elite and she says Princess is good. I will be avidly watching for anything about the Golden. :)

Also checking out anything on Golden P I can find on the boards. We will be on our first Princess cruise next Oct. for the LA R/T.

If Kuki loved it, I am sure I have nothing to worry about!! :)
