We went on Golden Princess from Melbourne round NZ and return.
A couple of areas we weren't comfortable with:
Small crowded front desk/concierge area down below.
Only decent coffee on board was coffee shop there and was usually crowded and nowhere to sit.
Also we like to walk off the meals with 45 minute walks around the promenade decks.
With the Golden Princess the walk is interrupted up the bow area by having to climb stairs . cross the ship then down the stairs again.
Completely interrupts the flow of the promenade deck. Maybe Small issues for some.
We love cruising thou on the HAL Eurodam again in November for 15 day Panama Canal trip.
Irrespective of my trifling complaints re Golden Princess you will enjoy your cruise.
