The 108,865-ton, 2,758-passenger cruise ship Golden Princess might be a vessel which design was created over more than a decade ago, but Princess has not shown its age yet. In particular, a considerable refit in spring 2009 added a lot of facilities - such as the Piazza, the Sanctuary and the Crown Grill - made popular in the line's newer, Crown Princess series of liners. Cosy and comfortable, Golden Princess floats a tasteful decor of beige, accented with soft pastels. The only times passengers feel the crowds are during the rush time 8:30 p.m. show in the Princess Theater, when latecomers stand in the aisles, and afterward, when guests stream toward the lifts.
