Entertainment & Activities
Although each port presents a range of opportunities, there’s so much to explore on each ship. With the Golden Princess, start traditional, with its many pools for relaxing and sports areas for staying active. Of course, while places like the Calypso or Neptune Reef and Pool offer activities for all ages, adults can find relaxation and solace in The Sanctuary, while children get their own space in the Splash Pool. Once you want to play a game, be ready with your golf clubs for the nine-hole putting course, or simply go to the Center Court for a basketball or volleyball match. But if you’re not looking to complete, you can always flex your muscles in the gym and fitness center. Along with these, try something quiet and low-key in the library or art gallery, where collections are on display, or get ready to browse and find deals in the duty-free boutique, where designer merchandise may be 30-percent off. At night, decide what you prefer: Are you more of a watcher or a doer? The Princess Theater’s and Vista Show Lounge’s productions, known for professional performances and quality acoustics, are hallmarks of the former, while for the latter, consider heading over to the casino or the ship’s many nightclubs, like the popular Explorers Lounge or Skywalkers Nightclub. Afterward, you may need to unwind, so grab a drink and chat in one of the ship’s lounges. Smoking and nonsmoking options include the Wheelhouse Bar, Player’s Cigar Bar, and the Promenade Lounge and Bar. Children, of course, won’t be bored, as Princess considers activities for those between the ages of 3 and 17. Movies, arcades, pools, and more age-appropriate activities can be found at the Fun Zone and Teen Center. See the Pacific and the continents surrounding with a cruise onboard the Golden Princess.
