We had seen many Countries over the past few years, so it was now time to visit our own for a change. Queensland is always a favorite destination for us both, and this trip was no exception. Seas were calm, the ship sat very well in the ... Read more

First cruise for both of us. Booked a balcony cabin on Deck 10. We were a little concerned because we had read some pretty awful reviews about this ship, but we were determined to give it a fair go. Had to queue in Sydney to get through ... Read more

A repeat of the 2008 cruise which we loved. This time not nearly as many ports and unfortunately we missed one due to the weather. The shore tours were Ok, but the one to the Summer Palace was especially bad, it was a beat up and the ... Read more

We had been looking for a cruise out of Australia for several years. We had previously booked two cruises which were taken for full charters so when this one became available we reserved a cabin on the day it opened. We made our own air ... Read more

We booked this cruise as we wanted to see Vanuatu and for a relaxing break. Despite all the negative reviews we read one week before our cruise, we enjoyed it very much. This was our fifth cruise and third time with Princess. Princess ... Read more

This cruise was so much fun and so relaxing. The food onboard was absolutely sensational. Every meal ordered in the dining room was out of this world. I am a real foody and was really impressed. The cakes also were a step above, especially ... Read more

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

Our second cruise with Princess Cruises, we boarded with trepidation as our first cruise was so appalling ( ports cancelled, mechanical problems, itinerary changed...) - so you can imagine our dismay when the first thing we saw when we ... Read more

This was our 11th cruise, our second one with Princess and definitely our last one with them. The first cruise had cancelled ports due to mechanical problems, but overall the cruise was good, hence the reason for choosing the Sun Princess. ... 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
