Review summary

As above pretty much. It was a great cruise on a fantastic ship

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Embarkation was ok, had better and worse

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room food was ok but repetitive Share restaurant was nothing special The buffet aka the trough was appalling The Terrace Grill was good

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
The activities were about the same as any other Princess ship. I really only exercised my arms at the bar. Trivia was well hosted

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The family liked the shows. Bravo was one of them. The comedian (Andre king) was excellent. DJ Sakary (Steve 7/11) was excellent

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Our children are older but our 17 year old still went to the kids club in the evening. Given that it was Xmas / New Years cruise there were plenty of children and I never saw or heard of any issues

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Service from the crew was excellent most of the time

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This was our 8th cruise on the Sun Princess and she is still in our top two. Perfect size and the layout is functional compared with many other ships. A full promenade deck around the ship is lovely

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an inside cabin for a change and loved it. We don’t spend much time in there anyway. It was right at the aft lifts and we never had any issues with noise from people or the lifts. Storage was adequate for 2 adults and a 17 year old boy. Our cabin was always immaculately cleaned by our steward the minute we left the cabin. (Thanks Lee)

Ship tip

The Sun Princess is an older ship but is well maintained. The crew work hard and deserve respect.

Ports of call

Komodo Island, Indonesia

5 out of 5
Saw plenty of Dragons. We had a private tour for the 5 of us with “Top Komodo Tours”. It was a great day

Bali, Indonesia

5 out of 5
Had a wonderful day. We had a day guided by a brother and uncle of an Indonesian waiter that we had met on a previous cruise. Thanks Pepe and Kadek. We had the best lunch and of course some Bintang, shopping and tours

Semarang, Java, Indonesia

5 out of 5
We did a private tour again. Saw and fed monkeys at Gua Kreo (fun) Did a little shopping and saw a few landmarks.

Makassar, Sulawesi, Indonesia

3 out of 5
Ordinary is about as nice as I can say. We didn’t do a tour, which MAY have been our mistake. We took a taxi ride for some shopping. Not sure how we survived the drive but here we are.

Lombok Island, Indonesia

5 out of 5
Loved it. We heard so many bad reports that we were apprehensive. We went to Sengiggi for the day and it was excellent for swimming, shopping and just sitting around for a few drinks with lunch

Fremantle (Perth), Australia

5 out of 5
It’s a long flight from QLD but Michaels Chaffier Service looked after us from airport to hotel and then to the ship the following day

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Fast and efficient
