Review summary

Lovely time with beautiful views and excellent service. Highly Recommend


5 out of 5
We were instructed we were to board at 4:00 - which was very inconvenient, so we just went to board when we checked out of our hotel in Aukland. There was no problem, the lines moved quickly and we were on board by 12:30. super smooth and easy.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

We loved Alfredo's pizza. The glasses were small when you ordered iced tea or lemonade. Overall the food was varied and we enjoyed the whole experience.

Onboard Activities

Ship Quality

The ship and our room were kept very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the balcony. My only complaint was that we were on the 15th floor and the was an overhand starting just above our cabin which made it hard to get clear pictures. I would recommend if you wan a high floor to check for overhangs.

Ship tip

There is a self-serve laundry on each floor, if you are interested in using the laundry check ut if your room is near-by. Our room was at the other end of the hall and it literally took 3 min. just to walk there to check on it and to hope there was available washers

Super smooth and organized. I was very impressed with Princess' ability to move 4,000 people on and off the chip quickly and efficiently
