This cruise was like a floating nursing home and geared for the elderly. There was a lack of entertainment. We had to replace our cruise card numerous times so we could get into our cabin. There were problems with the lifts and the ... Read more

First, the positives - our Room Steward, the Bar and Horizons (Buffet dining) wait staff were wonderful. The entertainment was pretty good - some variety. The theatres are lovely, however not very suitable for the majority of passengers ... Read more

Sun Princess cruise to the northern part of Australia was the most disappointing cruise we have ever had. GIVING YOU A $100 ON BOARD CREDIT IS AN INSULT. This on board credit would barely cost them $8, not to mention the saving on their ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for the route and destinations/ports visited along the way. Just days prior to sailing we were informed that one of those destinations was to be bypassed. Too late to cancel and book on another cruise - or in fact, ... Read more

I wanted to sail up the coast of Australia. A few days before departure we were advised that because the ship could not obtain max speed we would not get to Yorkey's knob. $100 pp was allocated to our on board account. This was a real ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit the top end of Australia. We were saddened to get an email before we left saying that the ship was unable to travel at full speed and they had to drop Yorkeys Knob off the list of ports. A lot of people ... Read more

Not sure in hindsight why we chose this cruise. Excursions badly organised and exorbitant costs. Perhaps it was priced to avoid people wanting to do them Embaking and disembarkation was diorganised chaos. Change in itinerary and ... Read more

The Sun Princess basically should be scrapped. It is well past its use by date even after a two week $30 Million refit. The only two things that it had going for it were it's general staff, whom were fantastic all of them and the food ... Read more
