Hi All

We are going to Hawaii on Golden Princess in Feb and have booked a suite! It's C423 and I think its VS grade.

I was just wondering what it will be like and if there are any extra perks included?

C423 is grade PH (one step above VS). Perks include Preferred Boarding, laundry and dry cleaning service, flowers, deluxe canapes, extended room service menu, DVD/CD player, two TV's, Internet access, and one mini-bar setup. An additional perk is breakfast at Sabatini's. This is for suite passengers only. I'm told it is amazing.

I will be in a VS cabin on the Grand Princess next week and I'm really looking to breakfast at Sabatini's!

Put this together awhile back and believe still accurate (if not I'm sure others will chime in). We really enjoy the Vista Suites on the Dolphin deck, only 4 cabins at back and always very quiet (rarely did we ever see anyone). Note, regarding the mini-bar set-up, you can swap our for what you like, liquor for liquor (including beer) and non-alcoholic for non-alcoholic beverages. We really enjoyed Sabatini's especially on sea days which you have a lot of on this cruise. Enjoy!
