We returned to cruising the Pacific after about 5 years, to go with relatives who were first time cruisers, one of whom required a wheelchair most of the time. Brisbane is our home port so it was great not to have to fly to catch the ... Read more

We started with a few days on the Gold Coast to do the theme parks to make the trip more exciting for the teenagers and ended up that the best part was the cruise! We found the ship easy to navigate from day 1. We had three rooms - ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise, but first on the Sun Princess. The crew and social directors were fantastic. How the social directors keep on doing what they do every hour of the day is beyond me. We were supposed to berth in Napier but ... Read more

We flew from South Australia to Sydney, picked up by coach and taken directly to the ship. We did not have to worry about our luggage and it was sent straight to our cabin. We had to wait a while to board but with the amount of passengers ... Read more

It was a nice little getaway. The ship was nice, a big improvement over the Pacific Star which was the last ex-Brisbane cruise we took but not even close to the Coral Princess from last year! Our main purpose was to celebrate my husband's ... Read more
