Golden Princess Recreation
Passengers of all ages and interests have plenty to do onboard Princess cruise ships, and the Golden Princess offers enough activity and recreation to pack your days and nights with fun. A grand theater features music, films, and live shows. The Atlantis Casino, lounges, bars, and nightclubs are open until the wee hours for late night fun. Four swimming pools, four hot tubs, and a splash pool for little ones provide plenty of fun in the sun. The Golden Princess is particularly sports-friendly with a wide range of sport courts and activities, including a lap pool, complete fitness center, mini-golf course, virtual golf simulators, and jogging track. The adults-only Sanctuary provides the perfect relaxing respite from non-stop activity onboard and at port. Learn about art, computers, and nature with the onboard enrichment programs that feature lectures, workshops, and classes to expand your mind. There's a 24-hour Internet cafe, library, writing room, and art gallery. Movies under the Stars is a fun way to see your favorite films - outdoors on a giant poolside screen. Duty-free shopping is available in the ship's boutiques. For passengers under 18, there's over 10,000 feet of dedicated space in the Fun Zone and the Teen Center where kids and teens can play games, hang out, and participate in fun activities.
