I can only wonder what experience if any "Terrific Holiday" has had cruising. We have travelled with 4 cruise lines, and the Sun Princess was the pits. In brief, the cabins,( we had a balcony cabin as usual), were the smallest we have had ... Read more

We booked the cruise and the flight via Princess when they offered discount on airfare in March -- which saved us almost $400/pp if we bought them on our own in May. We arrived two days earlier in Narita, and bought the Narita Express + ... Read more

This was our first trip to Japan and we were really looking forward to this cruise and to spending some time in Tokyo after the cruise. It seemed a good way to see parts of rural Japan as well as the more populated areas. Having enjoyed a ... Read more

We embarked in Sydney and found the process easy and quick. It was a sparkling Sydney day, and it was a public holiday (Easter Monday) so it seemed everybody on and off Sun Princess was in holiday mood. There was a minimum of waiting in ... Read more

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

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

Turn 50 next year and choice for a cruise out of Brisbane next March is 11 nights Fiji on Sun Princess or 14 on Pacific Dawn NZ. Sun Princess won. So, when this two nighter came up thought it was a good way to suss the ship out and if we ... Read more
