Ship Facts: Sun Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Sun Princess Deck Plans
New Year's Eve Cruise Australia to New Zealand
As our first time cruising we weren't sure exactly what to expect but went open to all experiences. We had a balcony room on Baha deck 10 room B302, with 2 single beds joined together to make the Queen. The bed is quite short, my husband who is 6feet had his feet overhanging, but the mattress was comfortable. The balcony was small but served the purpose for us, I have to have fresh air and it was lovely to open the windows and see the islands pass by, it also was handy for drying the odd pair of undies or towel. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and some snacks from the buffet one evening on the balcony and it was lovely.

The room steward was wonderful, he tidied and cleaned the room several times a day and was very accommodating,he really did a wonderful job.

The placement of this room was great, not too far from the lifts and near the front, we had no problems with swell, even though the first 3 days were extremely bouncy and many people were ill. At the end of this floor there is a door that opens on to a somewhat private deck. Not many people realised we were able to go out there and I would imagine only the people on this deck would even know it was there.

The bar staff were fantastic remembering names and drinks from the 2nd or 3rd day.

The wait staff also were absolutely fantastic all smiles and so obliging.

The activities left a little to be desired we had a few days where we just didn't find anything of real interest or when the 2 things we wanted to do were at clashing times.

The food was wonderful in both the dining room and the buffet and we loved the Terrace Grill for a snack of hot chips, hot dog, with bratwurst sausage delicious or small burger with a drink in the afternoon. The cocktaills were very reasonably priced $9 - 10 and the bottles of wine around $25 to $35, not the best range but passable.

The Verdhi Pizza bar is great for a relaxing dinner or lunch with a nice bottle of red.

We actually won the $10,000 bingo jackpot on the last day so what a great way to end the cruise.

New Year's Eve was fantastic too.
