A fantastic North Australia Cruise by PJC1954

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was a wonderful experience, one to be remembered. It is a trip that I would recommend to others providing a good balance of time on the ship and time at port. The ship was maintained with a very high level of cleanliness minimizing the risk of spread of sickness. Thank you Sun Princess captain and staff.

Not going to Port Douglas... by hadji01

Sail Date: /

Not going to Port Douglas now due to tidal constraints. Really no one at HQ could have check tides before organising the cruise details. 2 days in Cairns instead. Very comfortable boat. Many passengers are elderly so very subdued. On the ship there is only 6 washing machines and dryers and only half working.... Not alot of night activities like floor shows etc. Only one so far in a week. Sun Princess could do more to enhance the experience. Can not fault the staff or quality of food. That side is brilliant. Relaxing down time.

Our first cruise - 12... by sengaallen

Sail Date: /

Our first cruise - 12 days from Sydney on 17 June. Loved the Sun Princess and her crew. Nothing was a hassle! Room was serviced twice a day, food options and service was AMAZING! Definitely get the drinks package but wait till you get on board. Loved Crooners bar! Overall the staff were exceptional. We'll be back!

Sun Princess by DelyseF

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Just back from 12 wonderful days on the Sun Princess. We found the staff on board this ship to be exceptionally warm and friendly. Our rooms were serviced twice a day and nothing was ever a problem. Entertainment aboard the cruise was good except for the Princess Show Crew which was so unprofessional it wasn't funny. All voices were mismatched and their dancing was all over the place. A bit of a disappointment.

The Regency Dining Room was exceptional and Horizons Court Buffet had a huge selection range. The International Cafe at the Atrium was a life saver being open 24 hours for coffee and snacks.

Mixed feelings by roaringgael

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

our toilet stopped working 4 times. The good part was their very prompt attention and it was fixable.

The ships getting old. I think the food quality in the dining rooms has gone down hill since a previous cruise 5 years ago.

overall most would be happy enough but Princess were better than this.

we all developed head colds.

the average age of passengers is over 70.

had to pay for a yoga class.

Shore excursions are ridiculously expensive.

First cruiser by EleanorGray

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

I was a first time cruiser but I loved it. The food was amazing,  the ship clean and plenty to occupy me during the day.  I even preferred the sea days. It was unfortunate that we had to miss two ports due to Cyclone Donna but understand that safety is paramount.  Occasionally there was a funny smell around parts of the ship.

Our 20 night cruise to... by nanniebumpa

Sail Date: /

Our 20 night cruise to PNG was great. It was smooth sailing in more ways than one. Staff worked hard to ensure we all had a great time both onboard and ashore. Food was excellent, it's hard to say no to so much tasty fare when it just keeps being served. The shows where really good and always packed out. Very interesting WWII lectures prior to port visits too. We could do as much or as little as we wanted. Already booked our next cruise.

Sun Princess, worst Princess ship... by sharbee

Sail Date: /

Sun Princess, worst Princess ship we have travelled on for both service and food except that Share by Curtis Stone was great. Staff did not seem to have their heart in it. If it was our first Princess cruise we would not be back. We know that they can do better.

Repeat of a cruise from 40 yrs ago by 2903happy

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a 40th anniversary cruise for me, as I did a similar cruise with my parents back in 1977. We loved the adventures of this cruise, and it took us to some very memorable tropical beaches, and many places of very significant history. This cruise has also refreshed my desire to return back to Vanuatu very soon, and get another fresh Mud Crab on the beach at Champagne bay.

Enjoyable cruise by MN3G2R

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The embarkation was messy and tiring.  We had a long wait from airport to cruise terminal as a bus driver could not be found.  That was poor organization, instead of boarding at 12 midday it was almost 3 pm.  That is the only complaint we had as the rest of the cruise was fantastic.  We had the best waiter this time around and it was a joy to see his smiling face each evening. Food was excellent and the steakhouse was also very nice.  The Share restaurant was out of this world, presentation and the taste of the food was superb.  I would highly recommend Share.  It was the second time around and just as enjoyable as the first time.Happy

Just returned from 3 day... by shereeb64

Sail Date: /

Just returned from 3 day cruise to Sydney. Sad to say there were some disappointments. No bottled water available, anywhere, only by the glass or bottled soda water. Tried to buy the soft drink package but was told they're not available on short cruises. The comedian was terrible & karaoke was sad! Self disembarkation, so we had to drag our own bags around the ship on disembarkation day. Also the ship docked in White Bay, we had made our transport arrangements from Circular Quay. On the plus, Robbie Williams show was incredible.

Thank you princess by leemc

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

Although this was my first cruise EVER, and i had nothing to compare it to, i have nothing but good things to say about the beautiful "sun princess" and her awesome, friendly, and very conscientious staff.

New Caledonia and Vanuatu were  gorgeous places with amazing blue holes, snorkeling, markets and beaches.

Just returned from Pacific Island... by Patsyd

Sail Date: /

Just returned from Pacific Island cruise o. The Sun Princess, 16th February. Due to sanitising, the ship as unable to embark until after 9pm. We were very pleased with the new 'luxury' bed and slept well. So disappointed though to discover that our favourite pizza restaurant has been replaced by Share, an expensive charcuterie.the decor is (to us) unattractive. We never saw anyone dining there, nor in the Kai Seafood restaurant, which also has a cover charge. On the other hand, the Sterling Steakhouse has an improved menu and is good value for the $29 cover charge. New ZealNd Ice Cream bar has replaced the free soft serve ice creamery and charges $5 per scoop. Horizon Court has lost its lovely tropical decor in favour of practical mud-brown vinyl furnishings and is also unattractive. However, there is now a 24/7 International cafe where one can obtain sandwiches, cakes, and soup, and there is also a bar. This became a favourite meeting place for lunch. I think we will look elsewhere for our next cruise. Pat
