When Princess launched Grand Princess in 1998, the
innovative ship made headlines wherever she sailed. Now her sister ships, Golden
Princess and Star Princess are following in her wake, setting new standards for
passengers who want to enjoy 'their cruise, their way.'
GOLDEN PRINCESS was built to epitomise Personal Choice
Cruising, Princess' innovative, unstructured approach to the cruising
experience. Designed to provide passengers with a wide range of entertainment,
dining and activity options, the 109,000-ton vessel enables guests to do 'what
they want, when they want.' Choices abound, as passengers can decide when and
where to eat, when to see a show or in which of the numerous shipboard
activities to participate.
Golden Princess passengers have plenty of culinary options with the line's
exclusive Personal Choice Dining program. Only Princess provides passengers with
this innovative approach to dining incorporating 'what you want, when you want'
flexibility in choosing their own main dining room experience -- either the
restaurant-style Anytime Dining, which allows them to dine when and with whom
they want, just like a shoreside establishment, or the traditional experience
with an assigned dining time, tablemates and wait staff. Among the ship's many
other options are a 24-hour restaurant and two acclaimed alternative eateries --
Sabatini's for an authentic trattoria experience featuring favorite Italian fare
and high-quality seafood, and Sterling Steakhouse for special cuts of beef,
cooked to order, and other steakhouse favorites.
As does her sister ships, Golden Princess offers numerous venues to keep
passengers entertained. The vessel's three main show lounges present an
ever-changing array of Broadway- and Las Vegas-style productions. In addition, a
virtual reality center enables all high-tech game fans to continue honing their
skills. Passengers can pamper themselves at the state-of-the-art spa, complete
with a swim-against-the-current lap pool. Golfers who enjoyed Grand Princess'
nine-hole putting green will find even longer 'links' aboard Golden Princess.
Junior passengers will enjoy their own two-level children's and teen's centers.
And night owls can dance the night away at the ship's trademark 'Skywalker's
Nightclub,' a lounge set dramatically atop the rear of the vessel and accessible
only by a glass-enclosed, moving 'skywalk.'
Golden Princess also offers Princess' exclusive wedding-at-sea program in the
onboard wedding chapel. Only Princess offers couples the opportunity to get
married at sea by the ship's captain. In addition, the program offers a
high-tech way to share the excitement with the live Wedding Cam in the wedding
chapel. As a result, 'virtual' wedding guests can join the happy couple as the
ship's captain conducts the ceremony, by watching the proceedings on their
computer at home.
