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

The itinerary looked interesting as it offered an opportunity to visit parts of Japan that is not often visited espeically the Shiretoko Peninsular and National Park in the northern island of Hokkaido. Overall the cruise was enjoyable ... Read more

This is my first cruise in Asia and the worst cruise for my previous 10 cruises(with NCL, princess(with alaska), Royal carribean, carnival, etc) in United States. I am comparing its quality with those that I have went. 1)Smoke area ... Read more

We’re 60+ year old Australians with 17 previous cruises on different ships (and many different cruise lines) with which to compare. This was our 2nd cruise on the Sun Princess. This was a 22 night relocation cruise from Sydney to ... 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

This was our 6th cruise with the Carnival line (4th on Princess), and our 14th cruise over all. We were very impressed in comparison to previous Princess cruises on the Sea Princess in 2011 and 2012. The reviews on this sight do not do the ... Read more

Just arrived home after a 14day cruise on the Sun Princess. Only our 8th cruise but the first time we have arrived home feeling cheated and rather annoyed. Which is a shame because it is not the vessel’s fault, more the attitudes of ... Read more
