We have sailed more than 20 times and I have never seen such a ship in such disrepair. Rust all over, filthy windows which were never cleaned, and constant broken elevators! Luckily our room was close to stairs which came in handy ... Read more

The ship was beautifully decorated with an xmas theme. We enjoyed the first half of the cruise as we chilled out and relaxed, however due to a lack of activity range on board, the second half was deadly boring. On board activities were ... Read more

I have sailed twice with Princess cruises and found the Sun was a little shabby in appearance, particularly the Princess theatre. The seats were in disrepair & so were the carpets throughout the ship., The entertainment was boring, ... Read more

We commend the crew for the efforts they made to provide the amenities that one expects to enjoy on a cruise. However, we were unsatisfied with the condition of the ship. We had a balcony cabin on the 9th floor. Walking the corridor to get ... Read more

Our first Princess cruise. Very impressed with the ship, the calibre of the food and activities. Our cabin was a really good size. We always opt for single beds. It seems to give you more space that way. All staff on board were really ... Read more

The Sun Princess is advertised as wheelchair friendly. We found it to be the opposite. The doorways to the decks are raised on one side and unless you have a pusher you will be inside. The pool is only accessible by a sling chair I front ... Read more

Just got back from a New Zealand cruise on Sun Princess. I highly recommend this ship. Big but not too big, and the crew - mostly Phillipino - were excellent. A couple of tips: Avoid the feeding frenzy at the buffet and use your allocated ... Read more

Our balcony room on the 12th deck was good and could not fault steward services. However, I find it most objectionable that on a 12 night cruise for the cost, bed sheets were only changed once - after five days. I would expect and would ... Read more
