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

This cruise was very disappointing. We are seasoned cruisers and this was our 7th cruise on Princess. This ship was headed for a extended stay out of Shanghai where it was being leased by a Chinese company for 6 months. So this was the ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Princess, and we chose the Sun Princess because we wanted to return from Singapore on the 19th April, back to our home town of Fremantle. We were very impressed, with our inside cabin, the staff, the ... 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

We typically travel suite class. Because it has been going where we want to go, when we want to go, we've been traveling Princess. The Sapphire Princess is a large ship! The disadvantage is that it often is berthed in a cargo area of the ... Read more

We went with Princess again largely because of the 5-day pre-cruise land content in Beijing (for the Great Wall and other attractions) and Xian (for the Terracota Army). We enjoyed the experience with an excellent guide, top hotel ... Read more

No comparison to other cruise lines food was repetitive and average although the Crab shack was great but you paid extra for it. Entertainment was poor and activities were repetitive and targeted for elderly people only. Constant change ... Read more

** OVERALL RATING (FAIR) – two stars based on a 5 star rating. We would not take a cruise on this ship again. There are too many other choices, and better to spend a little extra for a quality ship and quality experience. ** ... Read more
