Captain Dominico made the difficult decision to vary the port order on our cruise, in order to avoid Tropical Cyclone Cook. The decision was made early enough for most of our tours (booked online rather than through the ship) to change the ... Read more

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

Have cruised Princess before (same ship), so knew what we were in for. Have cruised this particular area (South Pacific Vanuatu and New Caledonia) 4 times. It would be very hard not to have a good time on a cruise. Great service is a ... Read more

I could never recommend Golden Princess or their New Zealand cruise to anyone. I feel like a bit of a grizzler with the list of complaints, but we didn't talk to a single person on the boat who did not have an equally long list. I ... Read more

We chose this cruise primarily, because it departed from Melbourne. The food in the Horizon Court was good with plenty of variety. However, the food in the dining room was very disappointing. The traditional parade of the Bombe Alaskas ... Read more

Overall, the ship was amazing. The dining was a WOW!! Although the entertainment was average, with only 4 or 5 musicals, the ship still kept our family of 4 busy throughout the whole day. The sporting and fitness facilities on the ship ... Read more

Good itinerary visiting 6 south Pacific islands. 2 days at sea followed by an island a day for 4 consecutive days - that's hard going! To get the most from this cruise you must enjoy swimming, snorkeling, warm humid days and remote islands ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it departed from Melbourne and was sailing to the South Pacific. We were very disappointed with the ship as we had read previous reviews which gave it good feedback. We felt that the ship was old and tired and ... Read more

My wife and I chose the cruise because we had never been to the South Seas before, and didn't want long air flights. 18 days at sea left us a little bored, but there was no shortage of activities and excellent lectures on board. Also, we ... Read more

I have sailed at least six times over the past 20 years in the South Pacific and always found the conditions ideal for a relaxing 'disconnect' from all the distractions at home. I retired about 3 years ago so when I started shopping for ... Read more

Could not believe how bad this cruise was. First the positive: great enrichment speakers, cabin steward and waiters at 5:30 seating were very good. While the TV did not have as many stations or screen qualiy as the Royal Princess (3 ... Read more
