Ship Facts: Sun Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sun Princess Deck Plans
The Cherry Blossom Cruise that wasn't.
I will try to be brief in my review. The Sun Princess is a tired old lady, who needs an extensive amount of work and refurbishment to get her up to scratch. The staff on the whole are very friendly and helpful. The dinning room staff are first rate, the cabin steward needed to be a little more supervised.Having said that the Princess line had their work cut out to them. The Tsunami hit Japan so they had to find alternative ports quick smart, which they did. Korea Beijing and extra day in Shanghai. My husband and I were ecstatic with the alternatives.

The trip had its share of dramas, tsunami flu epidemic engine failure and burst pipes.The crew handled it with quiet efficiency.

The only negative thing I can say is that the laundry was insufficient for the amount of people on the ship. There was 2 washing machines and 2 dryers on most decks. Most of the time one or another was out of service.They were situated right next to staterooms which was very hard on the people in those rooms. The laundry tended to be a vocal point on the ship. People would congregate from 7.30am onwards as to ensure their place in line.It caused a lot of stress and distension amongst passengers. Can you imagine trying to sleep through that noise? I don't know the answer to that. Perhaps a ticket system would work.

All in all the trip was lovely. We will be back next May 2012 for the 104 day World Cruise.
