Sea Princess

11 Night Papua New Guinea (Brisbane Roundtrip)

Sail date: February 03, 2019

Ship: Sea Princess

Cabin type: Balcony

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Review summary

Best places to visit were the islands. But 2,of 3 were cancelled and at the third the glass bottom boat and snorkeling and scuba were all canceled This happened on the prior year trip too. So sea princess can not reliably do most of the port calls. So you should bother with this cruise unless you do not mind 11 days at sea with no ports to visit. If toynike beaches and snorkeling scuba, this cruise is likely to disappoint

Volcano tour observatory was a joke. Our knowledgable guide was ignorant and actually had zero knowledge other than there were volcanoes . What a joke
