Great experience visiting the ports and surrounding areas via shore excursions. The cliffs and mountains were spectacular. Wonderful tours of the land where Lord of the Rings was filmed.

Australia/ New Zealand by SoloTraveler1

Verified Review

Dining staff had bad attitude towards solo travelers. Food was no better than a cafeteria / diner. Nothing to do on sea days. Casino staff were great!

Many G'days on our voyage around Australia by joekrajew

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Australia was wonderful. We got to experience the opposite seasons of the Southern Hemisphere and differences in climate - hot in the north and cool/chilly in the south. Every port of call was unique and enjoyable. It was a long cruise but well worth it.

Stay away from the Sea Princes by mrsk

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship is old and shabby and overdue for maintanance.Tho' I heard that only  the public spaces are going to get treatment. My bed was in need of a new mattress the carpet was thread bare. But the powers that be decided that all should be happy with movies under the stars even tho' the temperature was 15 and 16 degrees. They left the guest lecturer ashore(he would have cost money) and the promised book club did not exist. The food went from mediocre  to just bad. And with everything was the hard sell. For a 50 year experience they look like they are on their last legs.

Relaxing trip by OlgaChavez

This was my first cruise. I felt I was in a 5 star hotel with lots and lots of activities and attention. Getting on and off at ports was very easy and organized.

Great Time in Alaska and Victoria by JohnM3

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The Sea Princess is a mid-sized ship which still offers large-ship amenities and services, such as great production shows we remember from our times on board larger Princess ships. Public areas are designed to allow plenty of natural light in, making the on-board experience more pleasant.

First Cruise: Alaska by SaraL

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is not a new ship but cleaning and maintenance crews obviously work hard to keep it in good shape. The atrium was lovely and it was fun walking on deck. The crew is friendly and very helpful. The crew was also entertaining. We were not able to use the laundry rooms or ship laundry and dry cleaning services while near Alaskan ports (4 out of 10 days). This is not a problem if you know ahead of time so I wanted to share this. Some of the espresso drinks tasted like instant coffee.

OUr first cruise was a great success! by JoenB

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were impressed with the ship's protocol on keeping some nerovirus sickeness from spreading on the ship. The announcements about washing hands and using the hand cleaner to washing down railings etc was very efficient.

Good Value by LieuN

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

If you're looking for a bargain then this is a good match. The ship is average, compared to what we've been in the past but we're quite happy because of the price, 10 days, ocean view room for $1500/pp/tips included. In addition, it's very convenience, SF round trip i.e. no flying needed.

Great Cruise by AngelaF2

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We are frequent passengers with Princess. We loved thre atmosphere and the ambiance of the Sea Princess. The only thing was that 5 yrs ago we cruised Alaska with the Island Princess and it was slightly bigger. But overall we really enjoyed it.

waste of money by BraunG

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

this is our 4'th cruise and I have to say this was the WORST ship we have ever been on, and 99% of our fellow passengers agreed. The food was TERRIBLE, the crew was rude, the boat was small, old, and dated, and the entertainment onboard was extremely limited!! I paid a lot of money for my family of four to go and I feel it was all wasted. I will NEVER recommend Princess lines to ANYONE or ever go with them again.

not so great by icantspl

Verified Review

everything about this ship was small, from the cabins, buffet area, to the entertainment areas. I felt cramped. We have cruised for 17 years and this was not comparable to any ship that we have been on

I'd do it Again, but a different ship? by JasD

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

My pros and cons above summarize my impressions. It.s a relatively small ship so you get the good with the bad. We had a terrible, disorganized tender disembarkation in Juneau that took hours. Alaska is beautiful, but we saw very little wildlife--you really need to go on specific excursions to do that. The pool and hot tubs were not crowded. It rains a lot in August.

Excellent Experience by HelenK1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I am very impressed by the service of the staffs in the dining room. Everybody are very friendly and make me feel like home. I want to give special thanks to Jose whose services is excellent. Me and my friends had dinner in the dining room the first day we got on the ship and he asked us for our names. The next day I went to the buffet for breakfast and I was surprised that he remember my name and addressed me by my name. Very impressive!
