Golden Princess is a Grand-class cruise ship with Princess Cruises that entered service in 2001. She is the sister ship of Grand Princess and Star Princess. She measures 109,000 gross tons and carries 2,600 passengers (double occupancy) plus 1,100 crew members. From 2009 to September 2015, she primarily operated on the Hawaii, and the West Coast of the United States routes. Golden was constructed in Italy by Fincantieri and is Bermudan flagged.

Golden Princess was one of the first major cruise ships to sail to Antarctic waters in 2006. She was dry docked in Victoria from mid-April to early-May 2009, in order to refurbish the entire ship. She was also drydocked in 2012 and again in 2015, where major refurbishments and addition of several new amenities took place.

Facilities

The facilities on Golden Princess include a nine hole mini golf course, several pools, a spa, a gym and a poolside theatre. The ship's main theater located at the forward of the ship seats approximately 1,000.

Areas of operation

Prior to 2016, the Golden Princess sailed from Alaska in the northern summer months. Before moving to South America for the southern summer season and to Alaska for the northern summer season, she would reposition to Los Angeles, California sailing short cruises to the West Coast and/or a single 28-night cruise to Hawaii and Tahiti. For the seasons that she did not sail to South America, she would do round-trip sailings to Hawaii from Los Angeles.

Starting with the 2015-16 season, she sailed Australia cruises from Melbourne for the southern summer months. In the northern summer season starting in 2016, she began to sail roundtrip cruises from China, based out of Tianjin. In 2017, the Golden Princess was based in Australia year-round, filling the gap with the departure of the Dawn Princess. However, in 2018, the Golden Princess returned to Alaska during the northern summer months. Golden Princess will be based in Melbourne again in the 2019 summer season.

Future

In October 2020 Princess Cruises will transfer Golden Princess to P&O Australia, who will rename her Pacific Adventure.
