Wonderful choice! We love Princess and the Golden is a wonderful ship, not too large, not too small. Our favorite place was the Martini Bar (known on some Princess ship's as Crooner's). They usually put their best and most outgoing bartender's there .

Which cabin did you end up booking?

We ended up with E709 in the back part of the ship--obstructed view but not as obstructive as others. Cat E--the mid ship ones were gone! we weren't really ready to book but i was afraid that if we waited any longer we wouldn't have much of a choice.

The chef's table sounds wonderful, however we're going to try for the ships tour! from what i've heard it's not to be missed. My husband's a civil engineer and would be overjoyed to check out the engineering dept. --we're still planning and have booked for this year, however we might have to cancel due to another venture we're undertaking and may not be able to afford both--this year. The upside to all of this is it will make for more family vacations. (OT--has anyone heard of Global discovery travel network?? we're signing up and from what I gather we can get pretty good cruise discounts as well. --we came into the presentation extremely negative and came out all excited--if that says anything )
