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 ... Read more

This was our very first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. I had read reviews saying the Sun Princess was looking a little old but we didn't notice any wear or antiquated furniture. In fact we couldn't believe how clean everything ... Read more

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
