Ship Facts: Sun Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sun Princess Deck Plans
A taste of New Zealand
November 2010 we boarded the Sun Princess, we were a bit concerned while waiting to board as the average age of passengers appeared to be high and a lot of wheelchairs

However once on board this was not the case, except for the wheelchairs, these appeared to increase as the cruise progressed. Several appeared to be part time! not able to walk during tours ashore yet capable of maneuvering around the buffet, having to wait while a large person is priority loaded on and off tour buses then watching same person get up and walk when back on ship with food in view, very annoying to say the least. This need to be addressed by the cruise line

Entertainment top class, plenty of variety something for everyone. Theme nights the weather was against Hawaiian nights in the cold and rain did not work. Pre cruise advice re themes would have been nice

Food excellent, could not have asked for better.

Dinning arrangements were a problem, fixed dinning at 1745 meant that you missed the ship leaving port, important to a photography buff. So had most of our meals at the buffet. Next cruise have booked anytime dinning to cover this.

Cabin was clean and well appointed, small hotel room with en-suite, balcony a must to prevent that closed in feeling, plus nice to relax in private sometimes and watch the sea

Had our Wedding anniversary on-board, truly special event, Staff made the day memorable

Did not book tours though cruise line, went online myself and did own research and booking, better value for money. Cruise run, very expensive in comparison

Would recommend Sun Princess to anyone the staff were top class could not have been anymore helpful, pleasant and polite

Have already booked next cruise with Princess
