After just getting off another cruise line and returning to the Sea Princess for the third time it was like coming home and everything was good. From the friendliest staff to the best entertainment and keeping my enjoyment of the food to ... Read more

Sea Princess is incapable of providing adequately for any special diet except for simple gluten free or vegetarian. They have no menu for Gluten, Lactose or any other frequently occurring allergy. This caused multiple reactions because of ... Read more

The Golden Princess might have been grand lady in her time, but...her time is up!!! The lack of communication with staff on boarding in Melbourne caused a queue of almost 1 kilometre long, in hot sunny conditions, until someone ... Read more

We stayed in Obstructed Ocean View Room Dolphin Deck close to Casino and Italian Restaurant. Only disadvantage was early morning tenders being released at some ports. However its very cost effective. This is our second cruise with ... Read more

We have sailed on Princess before in Feb 2015 on Sun Princess and had the best time ever and expecting the same on this ship but was I disappointed. Except for the last day of the cruise the entertainment was not very good. I felt we ... Read more

This was an excellent cruise. Right from start check in was a breeze. Room very nice and clean and our steward was very polite and always ready to help. We have traditional dining at 5.45pm as we prefer this as it gives us time after ... Read more

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

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
