Amazing holiday, the ship and the staff were fantastic. The itineraries around South America where beautiful. Best holiday I have ever had !!

The Golden Princess was a good sized ship, and the catering was excellent. There was plenty of entertainment, however we felt the standard of stage performances could have been better. We understand that Princess was catering for a largely American market, and therefore not always recognising British tastes. That being said there were a number of nationalities on board our recent trip from Buenos Aires to Santiago and hosts were translating from English to Spanish or vice versa. We felt the entertainment team who provided quizzes, karaoke, games on board were very good. Our package included a two night stay prior to the cruise and post cruise which was great to see the cities of Buenos Aires and Santiago. All transfers were on time and flights arranged by Iglu were faultless. Thank you for organising a great trip.

We flew to LA for overnight stay prior to start of cruise the following day. The ship was excellent, warm and welcoming. Our mini suite was spacious and comfortably furnished. The balcony was big enough for the two of us. The crossing on the Pacific was a little rough. The weather cloudy and much cooler than expected. We travelled late March. The entertainment was excellent. Staff were friendly and could not do enough for us. Arrangements made by IGLU were clear and regularly updated. However, we felt that the instructions for the shuttle for hotel at Heathrow airport could have been more detailed e.g. number of bus stop and location. We had a wonderful time in Hawaii and will certainly be booking again.
