Ship Facts: Sun Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sun Princess Deck Plans
Cherrey Blosson Cruise to Japan
Cruise started well with a very efficient embarkation.

Cabin was well set up to our liking and a very efficient and likable Brando.

We had no problems with out stateroom at all.

Meals were excellent in the Marquis with great Stewards Renee and Mel who couldn't do enough for us.

Horizons Buffet was always crowded at meal times but if we couldn't find a table for four we went to the Dining Room. There was a good selection of meals, well cooked and well presented.

Entertainment on board was varied but we preferred the Boules, Darts and Golf where we all had great fun and met an amazing number of fellow passengers. They do need a dedicated playing area.

Boules and Golf regularly attracted up to 100 players. James and Mikey were the pick of the Cruise Director staff and both agreed at the end that it was probably the best group they had met. The Cruise Director and Assistant left a lot to be desired, David for his lack of enthusiasm and Jen having a difficult to understand voice. Their staff left them for dead.

Wine and Beverages were restaurant prices which did not sit well for many passengers who felt they should be cheaper. Countering that, the coffee cards were popular and well worth while (we finished up buying 8).

The change of ports was of course unavoidable but two days in Beijing and the reinstatement of Korea were excellent.

The ship on the whole is showing its age and in need of a serious refit but I suppose that is par for the course these days where "planned maintenance" is a dirty phrase.

We would cruise on the Sun Princess again particularly as there is not tipping any more.
