Our first time sailing with Princess; our other 3 cruises having been with P&O Australia, which have been deteriorating in standards over the past few years & were disappointing to say the least. However, it would be hard to ... Read more

We sailed on the Diamond Princess - one of the medium sized Princess cruise ships. All days at sea were fairly quiet. Bit of a swell but the ship movement was hardly noticeable. Lots of entertainment and things to do on board, apart from ... Read more

Firstly, travel to and from the embarkation port was smooth (we organised our own arrangements with Con-X-ion). We arrived before our designated embarkation time and found ourselves boarding ahead of that time. Disembarkation was also ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we really didn't know what to expect. After what I was told was a fairly long wait to get on board (I did not know this at the time), I went to explore the ship and have some lunch. I found a very good range ... Read more

Our 6th cruise with Princess and first on the Golden. It took some getting used to after only being on Sun class before, but we found our way around by the end of the cruise. LOL. She was in great condition, and we were happy with all ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare, seemed to be little or no organization, why bother giving embarkation times if you cannot cope with the crowds. Have never seen so many elderly people in one place, was almost if they emptied out a ... Read more

The Food, Service and production shows were all excellent. All a lot of the production shows we had seen in the past. The itinerary was excellent which is why we went. We had never seen New Zealand or Australia before. We spent an ... Read more

Decided to go on this cruise only 4 weeks before departure. Good price on a Princess ship I had not been on before because I mainly cruise out of Sydney because I don't like flying. The overseas terminal at Circular Quay was no worse than ... Read more

From the word go I had concerns - the embarkation time was being continually changed; arrangements at Sydney were diabolical considering millions had just been spent on updating this terminal - took 3 hours to actually board ship (from ... Read more

This holiday met all my expectations of a cruise. The entertainment was very good, with a good variety of entertainment types and different shows on offer every day. The only complaint I would have was when a show was in the Vista lounge ... Read more

Princess cruises made our first cruise experience so perfect that we're already thinking of doing it again. Everything was so systematically done from the embarkation to the disembarkation day. We really had a hassle-free vacation but ... Read more

This ship is amazing. This was our second cruise and we were not disappointed. The staff are extremely friendly, as usual the food was amazing and the facilities on board are endless. The only down side to our cruise was the poor weather ... Read more

It's been a while since I've cruised on Princess and this was my 3rd Princess cruise (out of a total of 23 cruises). I really like ships that have enclosed pools, as this gives cruisers shelter if it's really windy. This ship also had ... Read more

Having sailed on 3 previous Princess cruises, we were of the opinion that Princess was one of the best mid tier cruise companies offering good value for money overall. This was our first cruise on the Diamond Princess and overall we must ... Read more

It was interesting reading prior reviews about the Diamond Princess. If all were to be believed, I probably wouldn't have gone - lousy food, noisy engines, bad entertainment etc. Fortunately I ignored the majority of those whingers and ... Read more

I booked this cruise as part of the bucket list thing. It was to be the trip of a lifetime. In some ways it delivered, not so much in other ways. We have cruised princess about 4 times and have cruised other lines approximately 5 ... Read more

We very much wanted to see French Polynesia. As we live in the Vancouver area we were thrilled to find a cruise that embarked from our home port and took us first to the Hawaiian Islands and then down to the French Polynesian Islands. ... Read more

This was our very first cruise so we didn't know what to expect. I had read reviews saying the Sun Princess was looking a little old but we didn't notice any wear or antiquated furniture. In fact we couldn't believe how clean everything ... Read more
