Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Great service. Whenever we sat down we’re always asked what we would like to drink. Always friendly. Room steward was always looking after us. Always made beds & got bed ready at night & put a chocolate on each bed. Ship personnel always friendly. Couldn’t fault anyone. Great service by all.

Ship Quality

Always spotlessly clean all the time. Staff were always cleaning. Even cleaning stairs & rails. Never saw one dirty toilet. Well done again Princess.

No excursion just got Uber into town. Unfortunately it is a long way for people to walk to the ship & if disabled have to catch bus to end of pier. Not good.

Mare Isle, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia

Did princess tour out to the beautiful beach with beautiful white sand. Kids swam & snokelled in beautiful clear water. Amazing.

Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu

2 out of 5
No excursion. Markets at Port & we were pestered all the time by locals wanting us to pay them to take us somewhere. They certainly were persistent & it scared the children as there were 7 of us as a family.

Lautoka, Fiji Islands

Noumea, New Caledonia

Lovely. Got the hop on hop off bus excursion from Port through Princess & that was great. Went to lots of places to markets & to beautiful lemon bay. Plenty of buses coming all the time to take you on somewhere else. Great service by buses. You could stay as long as you liked on places on the route.


5 out of 5
Excellent. Very well organised by Princess so that not everyone was rushing off at same time. Plenty of help by staff on boat & at Port. Well done.
