Golden Princess - April 2017 - Post 1


I joined Golden Princess again on 19th. April 2017 for her repositioning to Sydney followed by a cruise to Fiji followed by another to Papua New Guinea, returning to Sydney, 30 days in all. As usual, the service throughout was excellent and the food aboard very good. An added pleasure was that my good friends from several previous cruises, Julianne and Phil were also aboard for the PNG cruise. A fabulous time.
