The Golden Princess is the latest ship added to the Princess fleet in Australia and this ship is the only Princess ship to offer cruises directly out of Melbourne in the summer months.

I was invited to tour the ship and enjoy a delicious lunch aboard the ship.

The Golden Princess can take up to 2600 passengers and 1100 crew. It features three formal dining rooms and two high-end specialty restaurants, Crown Grill and Sabatini’s. The ship has many amenities including a mini golf course (9 holes), several pools, a spa, a gym, a video arcade, a children’s facility, a dedicated teen centre, a screening room (for recent movie releases), Movies Under the Stars screen, multiple bars and lounges and three modern show lounges. The ship’s main theatre located at the forward of the ship seats approximately 1,000 passengers.

The ship has four swimming pools, nine spas and an adults-only area, the Sanctuary, forward on the ship.

In 2016-2017, the Golden Princess will be based in Australia year-round filling the gap with the departure of the Dawn Princess. However in 2018, the Golden Princess will return to Alaska during the northern summer months.

If you have any questions or would love to make a booking on this wonderful ship please give me a call or email me on
