We have sailed on Princess before in Feb 2015 on Sun Princess and had the best time ever and expecting the same on this ship but was I disappointed. Except for the last day of the cruise the entertainment was not very good. I felt we ... Read more

Sailed November 2015
This was our first cruise which we chose because we wanted to relax. All in all, it didn't disappoint. We certainly spent a lot of time reading, partly due to the fact that the daytime activities didn't appeal to us - fruit and vegetable ... Read more

Leaking ceilings, buckets around the Atrium to collect water, the stairs in the Atrium blocked off ( possibly so no one slipped) one end of the ship blocked off outside on our last 2 days at sea when we could be outside. Shore excursions ... Read more

Rooms were very well taken care of but all the rest of the services were inconsistent or just plain bad. The leader of bad service was the Customer Service. With English as their second language, it became clear from the start that the ... Read more

Background: My DH and I love cruising and have been on over 30 cruises together. No cruise is to short and no cruise is to long. We try to see different countries on each trip or cruise, so this time we decided to give New Zealand a ... Read more

I just got back from thirteen days on this Old ship. It was the oldest roughest cruise I have ever been on. I have cruised on all kinds of ships over forty years. The ship needs to be junked. There was plenty of food, but it was neither ... Read more

This was our third cruise but first with the Princess Line and Dawn Princess. This cruise was chosen as it fitted in with our dates and the itinerary included ports we wanted to visit. With some upgrading and hard saving for 18 months we ... Read more

My husband and I took this 26 day cruise mainly because the idea of travelling Fremantle to Fremantle( no plane flights) was very appealing. We had also travelled on Dawn Princess in 2014 to New Zealand. The ship had undergone a bit of a ... Read more

Papua New Guinea I loved everything about the country and my visit. I traveled as a single woman and had zero problems or fears of the country. I would recommend doing tours only because it is easier, but if you are with a group, I do ... Read more

Crew at the reception was friendly and helpful, waiters did their best, meals were tasty although spicy food (Indian or Asian) was just not possible to get. Surprisingly, as Dawn Princess cruises around Asia a lot. We were told, that ... Read more

Was pleasantly surprised at the size of the cabin and the quality of the food, but looking round at my fellow passengers was quite an eye-opener. Have never seen so many sick, elderly people in all my life - surprised they were even ... Read more

For my family and myself it was our very first cruising experience, all except my mother. My partner and I, both in our twenties, were the oldest young people on board, but it suited us just fine. There were quite a few children, but you ... Read more

We are an active couple in our mid-60s and, from previous reviews, expected a plus-75 demographic on board a tired ship requiring a full refit. After a smooth and uneventful embarkation at Fremantle we were surprised to see many ... Read more

This was the first time I was travelling alone. Embarkation was a breeze. I found out that even though I was given an embarkation time, most people I spoke to ignored the times they were given and just went earlier. I didn't participate ... Read more
