Don't bother with a drink package, even the "Unlimited Soda and More." It does not apply all across the ship. We probably could have saved a lot of money without it. I would also look into booking excursions offered from offshore - we found these were operated by the same agents Princess was working with and were cheaper!
Do not eat at the Horizon Court Buffet.
Probably best to choose a different ship as, in agreement with other past passengers, it has come to the end of its life in its current condition.
Stage productions on the Sun Princess are always very popular, so it is import to arrive in the theater up to 45mins before showtime to get a pick of the seating. Anyone making there way into the theater 15 mins from the show had only single seats left on offer if they were lucky.
Get over that in places it looks and feels tired, sit back and relax
Get a balcony stateroom and go with an open mind, and just enjoy!
Check your account daily, I noticed a few incorrect charges on the evening before embarking and tried to get it rectified they gave me another print off and told me this would be done however, several weeks later the original charges have been deducted from my account. I am not too impressed.
Relax and enjoy, my next cruise I would choose a cabin on the opposite side of riviera deck as the smokers section was right outside the glass doors on the side my cabin was on and I had to walk through them every morning to get outside.
Get used to a small room and small balcony.
Just go with a open mind, not a big ship have fun
all good had amazing time very clean and tidy great service
Not for. The younger (40 to 60) couples
prepare for a wonderful relaxing cruise.
Eat breakfast on disembarkation day before you vacate your room so you do not have to walk your luggage through the food areas.
