We are considering going on the Pricess Golden Cruise ship next fall. Have always done RCCL. I have a couple of questions I am hoping someone can answer for me. First, can you bring liquor on board? Is all liquor confiscated until the last day like it is on RCCL? Can you buy drink cards? Are the prices reasonable? Are there coin laundry machines? How does the tipping work? What kind of amenities do you get for the mini-suite room? Is it worth the extra money from an oceanview balcony room? Overall how does the princess line compare to Royal Caribbean? We are in our mid-50's so we are not looking to "party." We like to relax but be able to stop at ports to see and do things and then relax when we want to. Are there alot of kids? I guess that's enough for now. Any help would be truly appreciated. Thanks!
