Review Summary

Very enjoyable cruise from Sydney to New Zealand and back. The organisation was outstanding by Princess Cruises, everything went well for us in our balcony room. Food was first class both in the food court and dining rooms. Disappointed when the cruise detoured away from the last port of call in New Zealand because of rough seas ahead, but this was understandable and I suppose for the better. We had good seas and weather which made the trip most enjoyable. The only dampener was that we needed to use the lifts to go to other levels (bad hip) and they were very slow, there always seemed to be one lift out of order. Staff were excellent. Stage shows were excellent, expecially on the last night when the scheduled performer was ill and another act improvised with the ship band, well done. Very good value cruise.
