needs improvement

Sail Date: January 01, 2007

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our 15th cruise, 5th time on Princess. Flew to Auckland, stayed one night precruise for 1/23/07 sailing NZ-australia. The ship itself is beautiful and clean. The cruise director was useless and there was no information on the ports. It was all do it yourself. Luckily, we were prepared and had already booked private excursions. We had anytime dining which worked out well. the weather was not the best, we had very rough seas crossing the Tasman Sea and were late to Hobart by 8 hours.

Pros: the itinerary

Cons: the service

Recommends Sapphire Princess? Yes!

Ship Quality
very large ship somewhat confusing, but lots of pools, and good fitness center. the casino could use more slot machines, its seemed empty in spots. The shops onboard had a good variety of items.
Food and Dining
the food was typical cruise fare, nothing special . The buffet was very limited for breakfast and too small for the ship size. Beverages were very limited.
Service and Staff
Found this area lacking
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was small but adequate.
Entertainment
Entertainment could use improvement. The theater was always standing room only--too small for the number of passengers.
