Golden Princess image
We set sail on the Golden Princess this past September, leaving from Seattle, Washington. We had been anticipating this cruise for months, checking the average weather for that time of year months in advance. Unfortunately, for the time of year we were going, we were fearful that we would be met with a lot of rain during our time on the cruise ship, but we were thankfully wrong!

We had tremendous weather the entire week, mid 50’s to low 70’s each and every day, could not have asked for more than that! We had a Balcony cabin on the desk known as the Aloha deck, and the room was more than ample. The balcony cabins on this ship were treasures in my opinion, we toured a few and they had plenty of space.

From our balcony, we were able to see whales swim right up to the ship, Alaska was truly a beautiful place.

The ports of call included Juneau, Alaska, Skagway, as well as Glacier Bay. These had some fantastic sites. For $129 in Skagway, we did what was called a white pass summit train ride, these views were just too good to describe.

Waking up and enjoying coffee on our balcony though and taking in the sites was better than anything I could have ever dreamed of.

If you get a chance to do one of these Alaska cruises, be sure to bring a great camera with you. The dining was just as good, as the restaurants were top notch, along with the service. Desert was easily my favorite part of each meal though, great stuff!

This was a great cruise and you will not be sorry if you decide to take part in this voyage on the Golden Princess.
