    Golden Princess (Princess Cruises)

    Overview

    Golden Princess was the second of nine Grand style-class ships by Princess Cruises, ordered originally in February 1998.

    She primarily sails from her new homeport of Melbourne, Australia during the summer. In the winter she will move to Tianjin and sail roundtrip cruises around China. She joins her part-sister Sapphire Princess who sails year-round from Shanghai – the first two ships for Princess Cruises based in China.

    Trivia

    Golden Princess is one of the two remaining ships to have the “spoiler / handlebar” still on the rear of her on the top deck. It was removed from her sister, Grand Princess in 2011.
