Sick Ship: Ocean Princess Cruise Review by oldie41
Overall Member Rating
Embarkation: Hong Kong
I felt very isolated as I could not stop coughing, so refrained from going to many activities as I did not want to pass my germs on to other people. Two nights before we landed in Singapore my husband came down with severe food poisoning which he is convinced he got from some watermelon he had on board which was not fresh. The Doctor tried to tell us he had contacted a Norovirus in Koh Samui and really read him the riot act and treated him like a small child. All he ate or More drank in Koh Samui was one orange juice as he was already feeling unwell and since I had the same we are sure it was not that. We were made to feel like Lepers, confined to our cabin, had people come in at midnight to casually wipe down a few doorknobs and walls which suposedly was supposed to "sanitise" the room. We were made to wait until everyone else got off the ship then we were escorted to a separate gangplank and placed in a taxi.
Within two days of getting off the ship we had both fully recovered so we are convinced that the ship is indeed "sick". I would be very interested to hear if anyone else had the ame experiences we did as we know the Doctor's surgery on board was full every time we went there. This is my foirst experience travelling with Princess and I am very wary about travelling with them again. Less
Cabin review: BB7086 Balcony
Cabin was small but good, but the balcony was never cleaned once in 28 days. I put some clothes on one of the chairs and they got covered in black grime. I cleaned ll the chairs myself. The bed was not comfortable, there was a lump right where my hips lay. The pillows were REALLY cheap and horrible. Just lumps of foam rubber and obviously very old. When we packed up we found a sock belonging to a previous passenger under the bed. Location was good, not far from the Laundromat and the elevators but nice and quiet. The balconies are not very private, I could see the man next door most of the time so did not spend too much time on ours for this reason.Read All Balcony (BB) Reviews >>
