Princess Cruises’ Golden Princess has embarked on her inaugural Singapore to Alaska cruise following a dry dock in Singapore, Southeast Asia.
During Golden Princess’s dry dock, Princess Cruises and UK-based marine interior refit firm Trimline redesigned the interiors and menu in speciality restaurant The Sabatini, which has been renamed Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria. Guests can also now participate in onboard pasta-making classes.
Elsewhere, the ship’s ‘Movies Under the Stars’ outdoor cinema has been fitted with a new screen, the shops have been enhanced, all guest accommodation has been equipped with the line’s new signature Princess Luxury Beds, which were developed with board-of-medicine certified sleep expert Michael Breus. In addition, guests in the Club Class Mini-Suites now have priority embarkation and disembarkation, priority speciality dining reservations, dedicated servers and other services.
Golden Princess departed Singapore on 13 April, beginning her first-ever direct cruise to Anchorage, Alaska. The 29-day ‘Epic Adventure’ cruise will visit 11 ports, including Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang, Vietnam; Hong Kong; Taipei, Taiwan; Busan, South Korea; and Osaka, Shimizu, Yokohama, Sakaiminato, Hakodate and Muroran in Japan. Golden Princess will then cross the Pacific Ocean and arrive in Anchorage on 12 May.
Guests can then embark on a seven-day ‘Alaska Grand Adventure’ from Anchorage to Vancouver, Canada, which visits the Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay National Park, Skagway and Juneau.
The 2,600-guest Golden Princess will then homeport in Alaska until September before repositioning in Australia.
