To young too cruise....
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
Next time I’ll stick with world cruse legs.
My next mistake was opting for the princess transport from Sydney international airport to the ship. It cost about $75.00 per person… Take a cab….I was met by the cruse representative and we waited until or group was big enough before being escorted to a coffee lounge area within the terminal … We then waited waited and waited some more. It took longer to travel across from Auckland to Sydney than it took to be bussed to the ship. The excuses just kept coming, traffic, weather, it’s Sunday……… It was nothing more than a cost saving exercise. I can appreciate this but come on, 3 hours to travel 16 kilometres… This is totally unacceptable.
As so many others will tell you the lower authority level crew are incredibly helpful and cant be faulted however I did notice the higher up the food chain you go the more arrogant the staff become…Casino cashier and pursers office staff are doing you a real favour by even acknowledging you at the counter…. The male casino cashier is rather good at grunting and three syllable conversations.
Everything else about this cruse was what I’ve come to expect with the special exception of the cruise director… What an embarrassment to Princess…. This flabby bald gay man was totally pathetic and his attempt at humour left most people laughing at him… So very sad how some people end up…
Food… As we have come to expect, rather yummy. Stirling steak house- Don’t even bother.
My final little itch is with the constant touting for the passenger dollar, try being a little more subtle Photos to Coffee cards. Give it a rest…… Less
Great Cruise for WWII History
Perfect Cruise and Perfect End...
A cruise of highs and lows on ...
