Review Summary

Overall cruise experience is "Fair". The voyage from/to Sydney to NZ were very rough at Tasman Sea. Many passenger experienced seasick at sea. The Horizon Court Buffet foods were terrible with poor quality and limited food choices served. The waiters at the Buffet were not attentive to customers. They do not offer drinks at the table. But, focus on busing the tables instead. Traditional Dining at dinner was "Fair" with 3 Stars. Dinner menu is okay and the waiters are good at dinner. Our room steward was excellent!. He kept our room clean at all times. The Princess Theater production shows were good. Bravo Production was excellent! The Princess singers and dancers were great too.
