We were cruising because my wife recently turned 50, it was her dream to go on a tropical cruise. We departed Singapore with Freemantle as the destination.
Tuesday 19th April 2016, Everything was fine when we boarded the SUN PRINCESS ...
This was our first cruise with Princess, and we chose the Sun Princess because we wanted to return from Singapore on the 19th April, back to our home town of Fremantle.
We were very impressed, with our inside cabin, the staff, the ...
A slight variation to the usual reviews, if we may. The following submission is almost a complete copy of that submitted to Princess Cruises following our return on 'Sun Princess' Singapore-Fremantle.
Cruise was enjoyable, but ships ...
Our honeymoon was a complete disappointment. We were so excited to begin our new life together but we were so wrong. We have written to Princess and we are still waiting for a response

We chose this cruise to celebrate a friend's 50th Birthday, The cruise did not get off to a great start, as we were advised as we embarked that we would not be stopping at Kuala Lumpur as there was a problem with the ships generator and ...
We were aware of previous problems with Sun Princess coming out of Singapore after refit but this trip was well discounted and filled a convenient time slot for us. We had a great time despite the problems documented by others and would ...
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 ...
We have just disembarked on Sunday 1st May from Singapore to Fremantle. Weather was perfect. Food was just great. We chose to eat in Horizon as I wanted none to tell me what to eat, I could choose anything, and it was amazing every day. ...
This was our first cruise and its duration, embarkation point and destinations were what determined that we take this cruise, it was deemed to be a bit of an experiment to see if we both enjoyed this way of travelling and relaxing. We were ...
From embarkation at Fremantle WA to debarkation is Singapore this cruise was superb.
The weather was magnificent and I think an average of about 32 degrees C the entire trip which meant we basically lived in shorts singlets and thongs ...
4 day cruise to Albany and back was fantastic on the Sun Princess. Went with a group of about 90 for a family 50th. I spend 6 months of year flying around the world staying in hotels etc for business so see a lot of hospitality.
We also have just returned from a 14 night Cruise on Sun Princess from Singapore to Fremantle, stopping in Vietnam,Cambodia,Thailand and Bali.
Embarkation and disembarkation was super smooth and fast.
Staff and crew were ...
We have just returned from a 14 night Cruise on Sun Princess from Singapore to Fremantle, stopping in Vietnam,Cambodia,Thailand and Bali. We had an Owners Suite on the back of the ship on Deck 9. Although we have been with Princess on ...
After a 6 day break in Singapore we boarded the Sun Princess for a 14 day cruise to Fremantle via Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia. Embarkation was quick and efficient with the Princess staff taking care of all details.
46 day Return trip from Fremantle. Had a wonderful cruise, met some lovely people who introduced us to Cruise Critic.
Ship was great although was having a few issues with water leaks which the ships staff got onto straight away. She is ...
Loved everything about it, after a recent disastrous time on another cruise line I am pleased to say that Princess has restored my faith and love of cruising.
The embarkation process ran very smooth, we arrived maybe a few minutes ...
This was the first cruise my family took together - mum, dad, 2 kids plus grandma. Princess Cruises upgraded my mum's cabin so she can have one next door to us. That was nicely done Princess on a sold out cruise.
I liked the ship and ...
We were with a family group of 11 and had an amazing time on the Sun Princess and she still lives up to her name of providing excellent service with a personal touch. This was a Xmas and New Year Cruise and attention to detail was made to ...
Sun Princess has unfortunately seen better days. The ship is definitely showing many sign of age.
Good points :-
Wonderful, happy crew who were always friendly & accomodating ( special love to Jasmine in the Wheelhouse bar from ...
my wife and I really enjoyed this cruise.The entertainment was very good,the "British Invasion" show was very good indeed.
The International cafe was a huge improvment on the old bar that was there before,and the range of ...
This cruise over Christmas and New Year was not worth the premium that we paid to travel at this time of the year. I don't think we got anything extra to justify the daily price of travel over a holiday period.
This was my third ...
Being first time cruisers we weren't expecting anything, but were surprised by the service and the experience we received on board, will be doing another cruise.
The Cruise started from Perth with about 1400 of the passengers on the ...
Princess cruises provide the best quality of service we have experienced thus far (P&O Aust, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, HAL, Princess)
Food variety was good, however quality was inconsistent. The much lauded Curtis Stone menu items ...
Sun Princess is an older ship. She is very pretty and has a capacity for 2000 guests. Sun Princess has two main dining rooms located on Decks 5 and 6 in the middle of the ship. Located on the Deck 14 is the Horizon Court ...
This cruise was a very nice experience. We were expecting a higher class of ship than the P&O and Carnival ships we have been on before but sadly this was not the case. Pacific Dawn is a much nicer ship, better design ...
