Ship Facts: Sea Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sea Princess Deck Plans
Vanuatu and Lifou cruise

Sailed on Sea Princess end of May. This was our first ever cruise for my wife and I. We had a balcony Cabin on deck 11, and our cabin steward Ronnie was brillant. We would go for a walk or a coffee and return to find Ronnie had made our room spotless again, he made the bed so well you could bounce a coin on it, and two little chocolates as a final touch. The staff were absolutely amazing in their service and hospitality. The food in the Dining room was excellent and our waiters Ramir and Dejan were not only first class but very entertaining hosts. The food in Bistro for breakfast or lunch was great, with some extra theme lunch days. One lunch had Mexican with staff dressed up, another was Japanese, and we had a sweets and pastry day. These were all in addition to the normal offerings.

Loved the entertainment....The Beetle Boys, Stringed quartet , British Invasion, some Carribean boys who played music around the pool, a nice duet, and a great musician on a grand piano to welcome you through the atrium to Dinner. Plus there was the giant screen for movies under the stars. And there was two formal nights where the boys dressed up in their suits, and the girls got to show their bling.

The Sea Princess was great and we never felt any sea sickness, even though we apparently had some strong winds and 8 to 9'ft seas at one stage.

We visited the Island of Lifou for a snorkel on a beautiful reef in Jinek Bay. You will pay a $15 permit fee to a couple Island boys there, but it's well worth it. We also spent a day at Port Vila ...forget the shopping...go and explore the Island. We travelled from the Ship to town by water Taxi for $5, and then hired a driver and car for the day for $120. My wife and I saw some beautiful gardens and waterfall at the Cascades, visited a great lookout with a view over the bay and Island, and had a great lunch on a beautiful beach. Shopping....well after looking in all the duty free shops, I purchased my GoPro camera on the ship cheaper then Vila duty free.

Did we love Sea Princess...you bet.. It was was very sad to leave the ship...it was like leaving another family. We have already booked another cruise.
