We chose this cruise as a New Year 'getaway'. We were on Deck 7 cabin D740. The bathroom didn't have a bath that didn't bother us but the size of the bathroom was very very small. The shower curtain was too short and continually wrapped ... Read more

The main reason for doing this cruise was to revisit the Solomon Islands. The fact that it included various PNG Islands and Vanuatu was a bonus. We had sailed on Sun Princess previously and were interested in seeing how the upgrades had ... Read more
