This was our first cruise on Sun Princess and we found it to be a very pleasant ship to cruise on, not quite as modern as the Saphhire Princess, but like the Sea Princess it seemed to have a very welcoming feel to it! The pre-booked coach ... Read more

We've just returned from this cruise, our first with Princess. We're cruising with them again (Sapphire Princess) in December 2015. We've cruised with 3 other lines and Princess was not quite up to the level of two of them. The cabin was ... Read more

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

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

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
