We chose this cruise because we have wanted to visit Japan for a long time and this fit nicely with the land part of our holiday. It was our first and likely our last Princess cruise. Our first impression was ok. The embarkation was ... Read more

The Diamond Princess cruise, r/trip Tokyo, nine nights, Okinawa, and 3 ports in Taiwan was very 'interesting'. First, 2000 passengers were Japanese or other Asians, only approx. 500 English speaking passengers onboard. The cruises from ... Read more

I would have to say this was hands down the worst cruise my husband and I have ever been on. My husband summed it up best by saying it was extremely underwhelming. The ship itself was pretty good, it's an older ship and could use to be ... Read more

Staff was great except one very rude tech guy in internet signup area. He grabbed my wife's tablet, made unrequested and un-needed changes including deleting some shortcuts having nothing to do with the cruise while saying "let me do ... Read more

We chose this holiday for the itinerary as Japan was one of my bucket list places to go. It was actually a holiday of 2 halves as the first 6 days consisted of an escorted land tour with Wendy Woo tours. We saw lots of interesting places ... Read more

After being on over 30 cruises, this had to be in the top 2-3. It started off really bad when Princess didn't have any shuttle service at the airport with around 80 people there wondering what to do now. Somehow, someone procured busses ... Read more

Embarkation was dreadful. From the time of luggage drop it took two and a half hours to reach our cabin. Our basic verandah cabin (never a stateroom, how pretentious) suited us well. The carpet was well worn and the verandah had seen ... Read more

We were aware of previous problems with Sun Princess coming out of Singapore after refit but this trip was well discounted and filled a convenient time slot for us. We had a great time despite the problems documented by others and would ... Read more

The Sun Princess basically should be scrapped. It is well past its use by date even after a two week $30 Million refit. The only two things that it had going for it were it's general staff, whom were fantastic all of them and the food ... Read more
