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

Although a one night delay in Sydney, We finally boarded on a 14 night trip to the south pacific. There is no public transport to White Bay cruise terminal and the Taxi fare was $35.00. The boarding process at White bay terminal was smooth ... 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

We were so excited to finally go to Australia, Fiji and New Zealand . What a disaster. The ship says wheelchair friendly we found this not to be true. Yes there is 1 outside cabin balcony, the rest are all inside cabins. Are you not ... 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

One of my favourite cruises is around NZ plus a port or two in Australia. So as to round off a rather problematic year with personal family problems I decided, for the third time, to do this cruise again. My fourth with Princess and my ... Read more
