Try the MDR embankment lunch in the Da Vinci Dining room—a really pleasant way to start your cruise, with an excellent menu away from the crowded Horizon.

The Medallion Class experience is great.

Check there is no corinavirus on board as we were not told of positive cases until we were home. That meant we travelled 15000 miles, 25hrs flying time unaware that we could be infected. Shame on Princess and NSW Health Authorities for spoiling an otherwise fab cruise.

This itinerary is not for a first time cruiser

If you have a drink package, monitor what is being counted on your account. We regularly saw drinks charged to our total that we did not order.

We don’t drink alcohol and so I brought a 24 case of coke with us on board and it lasted the entire 12 day cruise. We also got free lemonade and iced tea ( iced tea was bland). We didn’t bother with the beverage package. We bought wifi for my wife only and that was sufficient. We always tipped $10 per meal in the MDR but noticed that nobody else around us was tipping.

Relax and let everything else melt away.

if your excursion is late, do not use it even if it is nonrefundable. your credit card company can dispute to get your money back. If you use any service, even half the time, they will not compensate you even when it is the cruise ship fault (late and cut your excursion time short while they wait for more customer to arrive)

ports are why we choose this cruise

This ship appears to be in need of a lot of deferred maintenance. We love to take walks on deck 7 but they we’re regularly blocking it off for repairs. Frustrating! However in all fairness there are other places to walk on deck 17 but it’s really for joggers and much more monotonous. Remember a cruise is only as good as you make it. Princess provides the vessel, room, food, places to hang out & relax, pools, hot tubs, saunas, classes and entertainment. there is no shortage of activities to get involved in. They do a fine job overall. I’d highly recommend this itinerary.
