Ship Facts: Ocean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ocean Princess Deck Plans
Our best cruise ever

We boarded Ocean Princess at Sydney and sailed to Singapore via several Australian ports then Komodo Island (Indonesia), Ho Chi Minh City - formerly Saigon, Vietnam, then Ko Samui, Thailand and ended in Singapore. We had an Owners' Suite at the rear (aft) of the ship. It was incredibly spacious and extremely well appointed. The balcony wrapped around the side and back of he ship and would have been 20 yards long.

We loved the smaller ship experience. The ship lacked nothing in amenities and the warmth and friendliness of the crew and the ability we had to "make friends" with fellow passengers by seeing them so frequently was terrific. We had breakfast every morning in Sabatini's, the Suites Only venue, and it was wonderful. Dinner every night was in the Club Restaurant. We found the food very good and the service friendly and professional without being at all intrusive. Our waiters very quickly learned our preferences and always catered for them.

We only did one excursion - "Walking with the Komodo Dragons" at Komodo Island. It was an absolute highlight and we were privileged to see 3 large dragons up close. Sadly, some people on later excursions didn't see any.

The ship is smallish by today's standards with only about 600 passengers and it is 15 years old but it definitely has appeal for us and many others. Our most recent cruise had been on the Queen Mary 2 so there was certainly a contrast.

Entertainment was more than satisfactory for us with some duos and a fantastic piano man - Sammy Goldstein.

The itinerary was great, the suite was wonderful and the crew couldn't have been better.
