This was our 21st Princess cruise and our second Club Class experience. For the four-day cruise from Adelaide to Melbourne, we booked the window suite F301. Usually, we travel in mini-suites and to have a full suite, although without a balcony was a nice change. There were many little additions that were included in the suite that are not available in a mini-suite. The extra mini-bar set-up is one. There is also the additional space such as a larger sitting area, a separate shower and bath, with the shower having a proper door instead of the shower curtain. The bed also felt a little larger than the mini-suite bed. There was a back-lit magnifying mirror in the bathroom, additional toiletries in the bathroom such as cotton wool, cotton buds, bath salts and separate shampoo and conditioner. We had breakfast in Crown Grill three mornings out of the four and the service was excellent. Each breakfast was cooked to order as you could tell that everything was made fresh instead of pre-made food. The room attendant 'Laurence' was excellent. He actually made the bed everyday by stripping the bed and remaking it, which is what I like. What was a real disappointment was the service in Club Class dinning room. At every meal, there were mistakes made with our food order. The service was at times very slow and the waiters did not work very efficiently with the head waiter. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the head waiter or the the waiting staff. On our first night, we were served someone else's food. When we brought this to the waiter's attention, they apologised and immediately took it away and served it to another couple. I found the serving staff at club class dining room to be less than 'C Grade' level of competency. The princess theater seats seemed to be all leaning forward and very worn. Our suite had many blown light globes that required replacement which did not happen until the very last evening. There were also water leaks in the corridors. Adelaide as a embarkation port is really poor as it is very difficult to get to from the airport. It seems to be miles away from the city and as such, a really long way from the airport and the city. The two ports that we visited were absolutely fantastic. Kangaroo Island and Port Lincoln were exceptional. We did Princess tour - Kangaroo Island in a Day and absolutely loved it. Although it was a long day in a bus, touring, the wildlife encountered and vistas visited, were an excellent combination. I highly recommend this tour. In Port Lincoln we did a tour with Explore Eyre designed specifically for cruise ships, and it was called - Tasting Eyre. My goodness, I cannot speak highly enough of this tour. It was the absolute highlight of the cruise because of Paul our guide and all the vistas we visited and mostly, the Koalas we saw in the bush. It was almost unreal in its entirety. I will do this tour again and again, if I visit Port Lincoln again. Disembarkation in Melbourne is always great because we live in Melbourne and we can just walk off the ship and take public transport to our home within just over an hour. Also, the disembarkation process in Melbourne is very efficient. Read Less

We chose this cruise based on several friends were also attending. I get severe sea sickness and always avoided cruises. When we arrived at the port, I was overcome with the size of the ship, and how I would be with another 3000 people. The staff assisting us at embarkation were friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel welcome. The ship was impressive, so many different areas to meet friends or take some time to yourself. I never felt there were too many people, the ship has an amazing capacity to allow one to find their space to do what ever suits their mood. I met new friends, ate good food, was pampered in the Lotus spa, danced the night away in several bars and had a smile form day 1. Needless to say I wasn't sick. This ship had a little rough weather and I was fine. I'm looking forward our next cruise. Read Less

This departed from my home town and went over the Australia Day long weekend. We took my parents and it was a lovely opportunity to have some relaxed, quality time with them without the worry of hotels etc. We enjoyed each port and the activities on the ship, including the shows. The dining room service was terrific and the choice at the Buffett for breakfast and lunch was good. This is an older, smaller princess ship but in good repair. The gym is amazing! We didn’t do any of the organised tours, just walked around the local area, Kangaroo Island had a small market for Australia Day and Pt Lincoln was hosting the annual Tunarama so there was plenty of entertainment. We took the horse and buggy ride around the Main Street and people watched! There was the opportunity to take a 5 minute helicopter ride for $40 pp from the beach. Read Less

Not many Cruise Ships had visited Adelaide South Australia before that allowed locals to embark on a journey from your home port without having to take an airline flight to meet the ship. Our journey was a cruise for Family and perhaps allowing my Grandsons to see another part of the world before they go to back to Primary School and High School as who knows when or where their next cruise will happen. The Golden Princess offered excursions that fitted the schedule as well as time ashore for shopping and general sight seeing. The Entertainment was World Class and every generation enjoyed stage shows, deck activities as well as children activities. The dining aboard can only be described as unbelievable with a variety of Restaurants, Deck Cafe's, International Cafe and Bar with staff that allow you to enjoy fine food, drinks and snacks that suit all ages. The Staterooms are comfortable and clean with stewards that are only to willing to assist day or night. As far as the Golden Princess goes as a ship it had everything you could want for on a relaxing cruise, there are places like the Skywalk Area that if you want to read in the quiet then this is the place to go but at night it is a night club. I could not find one fault that would detract me from saying our cruise was one to remember, well done GOLDEN PRINCESS. Read Less

This was a once a year opportunity to sail to New Zealand from Adelaide return. The NZ experience is absolutely amazing, however Princess is not living up to its name. The food quality was down, the staff seemed a lot less happy than in the past, entertainment options were so poor (except for one notable exception) and they really have cheapened up the service and options. A lot of the at sea activities are nothing but cross selling opportunities, there is no more happy hour at 3pm or cheaper bottles of wine in Horizon Court at lunchtime. No true deals on particular days in the shops either, no in room streaming of Movies Under the Stars if you are feeling unwell or the weather is less than ideal. The ship ran out of a lot of supplies (basically NO Shiraz available after a few days for dinner). Don't get me wrong, the staff are AMAZING, it is just the parameters they have to operation within are shrinking to the usual "profit before people' paradigm unfortunately. Even one of our party who was vegan was told "we need to do the numbers before we can confirm your request" (for VEGAN food, very basic). Rethinking future holiday options, including already booked cruises, Read Less

We previously heard that Princess was Highest standard of cruise line; we were very excited to be cruising with them~ We were very disappointed with the poor customer communication, you were made to feel very unimportant and having no family pools bopen on a cruise is a disgrace! We were unable to even be given a reason why by the front counter when questioned, just ignored and told that they did not know why? It was really sad seeing all the children dressed in their bathers waiting for pool to open that never did. The food was fantastic and the kitchen do a great job to create the Meals and so efficiently but the waiters and bar staff had no personality or entertaining value. We were just served. The Entertainment around the boat was minimal and often quiet boring However the Comedy show and Dolly Parton show was very entertaining thankfully. Overall we were very disappointed and will be only cruising with other liners Read Less

I chose this adventure because it sailed from Adelaide which was a huge bonus for us as we didn't have to fly anywhere for departure. The ship was amazing and the extra bonus was having a Balcony that was truly a great move:) The fact that you could just sit outside and enjoy the fresh air made it worth while. The beds where heavenly to sleep on and the amazing food was delicious, the convenience of everything on board was super. I would do it again in a heartbeat xxx. The ease of embarking and disembarking was fantastic, no problems at all great team work by all involved: The Golden princess certainly deserves her name because that she is xxx: Sailing into new ports was truly a magical experience and just being in awe of the way the Captain and his staff manovered this ship around was a force to be reckoned with CLASS: CLASS : CLASS, it was an awesome site; The shore excursion were well planned and well supported, we can't help mother nature at times when we couldn't go ashore but then safety always comes first, did not matter because there was always something to do onboard. all in all i had a fantastic time thank you Golden Princess and crew until we meet again .... Arrivederci xxxxx Read Less

Where to start. This was my second cruise with Golden Princess the first one being ok. The second one was absolute tedium. The cabin balcony door didn't secure properly and even after telling the room steward nothing was done about it. Despite 14 months passing between the first and second cruise the restaurant menu was the same. There must have also been a budget cut to the entertainment as there was half the amount of live shows. One of the performers who does a Freddie Mercury show was extremely boring and loved to shove the microphone in people's faces despite them being bored and disinterested. I knew there was a reason the front row was empty! Had a peek for his second show and half the theatre was empty! The other musical acts were dull however it was funny to watch the singer of one of the bands try and hit on women every single night. Obviously Princess Cruises haven't caught up with the #metoo movement! Shore excursions were a waste of time and money. Boring and pointless. Most of the people onboard are quite old and it can get pretty nasty watching them fight over seats. I will never sail with them again. Read Less

The fact that the itinerary was changed was never communicated to us by Princess i found out a week before the cruise because of a post on cruise critic, my travel agent did not inform me of the change either. Embarkation was really smooth with no hold-ups. I was surprised that passengers from forward cabins were allocated to the Canaletto dining room at the rear of the ship which seemed smaller than donatello or maybe it was because we were seated in the middle area not near any windows. Also in this dining room you did not hear any of the P.A. announcements, but on the plus side our waiters were very good. Had an issue with drinks package that was pre-booked as was charged more than the charge on board, but once i raised the issue the extra amount I had paid was refunded to my on board account. Our cabin steward was outstanding and so helpful. Cabin location on Lido deck maybe was not the best choice on a cruise during school holidays as the teen area was on deck 15 and a lot of noise traveled down the stairway that we were near particularly at night, other noise such as movies under the stars was not an issue. The new bed was great we both found it comfortable where usually the bed would not suit both of us, the television was old and when you tried to change channel it either had no sound or was extremely loud, the channel offerings were not very varied and the program guide is on the TV and only for the current day. I was told that the TVs are all going to be replaced when the ship is fitted for the ocean medallion system in March this year.. Unfortunately the forward pool next to the salon was closed/emptied on a few days and the other pools were extremely crowded/noisy. Daytime movies under the stars were impossible to watch due to all the noise. There is still a severe lack of seating near the atrium and international cafe, so sitting down and relaxing with a coffee and listening to the entertainers was not easy. Mostly we ate in the dining room for breakfast and lunch and the service and range was very good. There did not seem to be as many enrichment lectures on this cruise. (had previously cruised to New Zealand from Melbourne) The only area that we had any problems with service was at the guest services desk, and it was all dependent on which staff member served you, Did book shore tours privately as well as through princess, which all ran smoothly. There was a major issue in Auckland when all the passengers wanted to get off so long queue and not very well organised but this was rectified by wellington where they did a better system giving out tickets for the shuttles and disembarking guests in groups. We went to both of the specialty restaurants and they were both well worth the cover charge and the food was perfect in both Sabatinis and the crown grill In places the ship is looking a bit tired and some of the furnishings are looking very worn. Have been on this cruise line before and had looked forward to the happy hour but this no longer happens. Unfortunately they still take up the explorers lounge for most of the day when they have the art auctions. Disembarkation was not too bad and well organised. Read Less

My husband and I traveled to New Zealand on the Golden Princess for a 17 night cruise from Adelaide in January 2018. We had a comfortable cabin on Deck 8 which had good storage and an adequate bathroom with a small shower. The TV reception was never very good, but we didn't come on the cruise to watch TV, so this wasn't a problem. We dined in the Dining room each night, a vast improvement over the Horizon Court buffet which reminded me of a cheap food court in a shopping centre. We did go there for lunch, but always found it hard to get a table and felt some of the food choices were limited. Some of the food looked delicious but unfortunately didn't taste as good as it looked, the butterscotch sauce being a prime example, it was burnt. Our wait staff in the dining room were very friendly and happy to answer any questions we asked. The entertainment was lacking. Apart from Steve Larkins who performed as Freddie Mercury, the other entertainment was ok, but not the amazing performances promised. They felt like someone in America has come up with a concept for all the cruises and the singers and dancers had to perform the shows. Perhaps they need to take into account the areas the cruises are sailing in and make the entertainment more specific to those areas. One show Let Me Entertain You went from old fashioned songs to Britney Spears, Janet Jackson and then tried to get everyone singing Sweet Caroline. Perhaps if the entertainment planners traveled out of America they might find out this song might be popular at American baseball games, but means little to a ship load of Aussies. The ports we visited were lovely. We had calm seas and fine weather. We did do the tour to Hobbiton which we thoroughly enjoyed, and did our own thing at the other ports which worked well. Our main disappointment with the cruise was the lack of atmosphere. We were expecting a fun cruise with lots to do. While the Princess Patter listed daily activities, they seem to be aimed at the older cruisers, which made up about 75% of the people on-board. We felt like we were on a floating retirement village, which was a view shared by others of our age (50's) who we met on board. It felt like the entertainment staff were going through the motions and lacked any enthusiasm. The Cruise Director could never get more than 5 people each night answer to 'where are my party people' when this was asked at the packed Princess Theatre which held several hundred people. In fact the best place on the ship to get a view and some peace and quiet was the Skywalkers Nightclub as no one used it. Would we go on Princess again? It won't be high on our priorities. We will try other cruise lines to compare. We have been on Carnival in the past and had a great time. We just felt we were too young for this cruise. Princess, perhaps your slogan should be changed from "Come Back New' to "Please Come Back!". Read Less

I'm a first time cruiser but had been interested in going on a cruise for ages, when I found out about this cruise from a friend and it got me excited about having a cruise that will leave from my home port! No plane flights, no hotel stays interstate, bonus! When I spoke to another friend about it, they were in on it too, so we booked, paid the deposit and bingo, cruise here we come! The ship is beautiful and I instantly fell in love with the Golden Princess but what was there not to love? She was going to be our home for the next 17 nights. The ship is easy for people to find their way around without too much trouble. The crew were wonderful, friendly, courteous, welcoming and they have a great sense of humour. The activities organised by the Cruise Director's Team were varied so that there was something for everyone and if you missed something the first time around because you were busy doing something else on the day, there was opportunity if the activity was a popular one to be repeated later in the cruise. The cabin, A257 on the Aloha Deck has the aft elevators and stairs nearby and the cabin itself has cabins both underneath and up on the upper Lido Deck as well so you're not near the public areas of the ship. Getting to places on the ship from the cabin is easy too. Some places are easier to walk to than others though. For meals it was eating at the Horizon Court Buffet, Prego's Pizzeria or from the Trident Grill on the Lido Deck as I prefer the relaxed atmosphere over the Dining Room. There was always a good selection of food to choose from in the buffet. Didn't have shore excursions planned or booked but did our own thing in the ports we visited in New Zealand. The entertainment onboard in the Princess Theatre or in the Explorers Lounge was some of the best entertainment I've seen, whether it be singing, dancing, karaoke, jugglers, comedians and everything else in between, it was always good. Disembarkation Day is sad when your holiday is over but the Disembarkation process is smooth and you are given all the information you need to know prior to the day, if in doubt, the staff at the Passenger Service Desk will answer your questions. In summary, I would love to repeat the cruise again as I had the best time. I loved it so much, I was thinking of how I could stowaway on the ship, that's how much I loved it. It was my happy place in my ship bubble but all good things must come to an end. I highly recommend the cruise to others though and I hope that you have a wonderful time just like I did. Read Less

Went with friends but was disappointed with Princess. We left from Adelaide but was made to feel that the Adelaide portion was an add on. We were told on two separate occasions from the desk that the cruise didn't start until Melbourne. Really made us feel unwanted. Couldn't book the Ultimate Ship Tour until Melbourne. We had to get off in Melbourne (whether we wanted to or not) and by the time we got back on the Tour was booked out. NOT HAPPY. Had trouble getting the two coffee cards we had booked and prepaid for. Finally given a slip of paper to collect one after arguing and then told they would sort the other one out after Melbourne. Argued with them again and was finally the next day was sent a GIFT! voucher to collect the second one... Big joke as we prepaid more than what it would have cost us on board, then, were sent a gift voucher! Booked one shore excursion with Princess and waited over 30 minutes to be taken ashore for it. The Excursion left 45 minute late. Booked a private one online and it left on time, cost much less than the Princess one and was perfectly run. Read Less

Because it was leaving from Adelaide and returning to Adelaide that made this cruise very appealing to us, ment we didn't have to fly anywhere before, the timing was great for us and the destinations also were very appealing.The price wasn't restrictive for us and we really didn't know what to expect because it was our first cruising experience, We felt the overall experience was wonderful and will be seriously looking at doing another cruise to a different region in the very near future. We found the staff on all levels friendly and very professional unfortunately some of the passengers didn't show Australia in a very good light, but I guess you get all types on a cruise with so many passengers. We found the shows in the theares wonderful and the movies also very acceptable, the only bad movie was called the Final Portrait it stared geoffrey Rush but as a movie it was terrible. Read Less

We took our 12 year old grand daughter on this, our 3 rd trip around New Zealand. She had a wonderful time in the kids club and had a very special birthday there and at dinner. We do prefer the smaller ship size with easier access to all decks and facilities. The change in itinerary was annoying and the shorter day in Auckland was disappointing especially with the long wait to get off. The first tender port organisation was terrible and our tour group should not have been told to meet on the wharf. We were included in the very long queue, even as Elite, and the bus had to wait for people to come on the next tender. I know of one inexperienced family missed their tour completely as they did not realise the time it would take. The return trip was no better with a very long wait in the sun. The next tender port was much better organised. When disembarking we had great difficulty finding our luggage. There were no signs for each group and ours turned out to be at the far end, past all the groups leaving later. The entertainment and the food was as good as ever on Princess with the waiting staff and room steward doing a great job. Read Less

We joined Sun Princess in Adelaide for an 11 day cruise around the Western Australian coast to Darwin where we boarded The Ghan for the return trip to Adelaide. Embarkation was quick and hassle free. Within 30 minutes of arriving at the wharf we were sitting in our stateroom. We were greeted by our Stateroom Steward, Menard, who provided friendly efficient service for the duration of the cruise. The balcony stateroom (Deck 11, A443), was clean and comfortable and provided everything we required for an enjoyable cruise. It was located mid ship and was a short distance from the forward elevators and the laundry. In other reviews we had read about issues that some people reported in regard to Sun Princess. Throughout the cruise we were glad to find that we had no problems with; elevators being out of order, nasty smells in corridors, blocked toilets or problems with air conditioning. The rain didn't leak in and we didn't notice any more rust than we have seen on other ships. The customer service crew provided friendly service which certainly helped make the cruise enjoyable. We ate in the Dining Room, grill and at the buffet and enjoyed the food at these locations. We didn't find a need to try the specialty restaurants but did notice that on most nights these places were almost deserted. At 61 years of age I wouldn't class my self as a young passenger but I was certainly younger than most of my fellow passengers. I have been on a number of cruises with a few different cruise lines and this was by far the oldest group of passengers I have encountered. While this didn't affect our enjoyment it did mean that most venues were deserted early in the evening. My wife and I found the entertainment to be a bit boring. Nothing wrong with the standard of entertainer but it was mainly the same people playing the same thing, at the same time of day at most of the bars and public areas. We found the staff at the Horizons Bar by the pool to offer exceptional service. Not only were they good with the bar service but they kept us entertained with their many tricks, puzzles and personalities. We didn't bother with any of the pre-booked port tours because we wanted to do our own thing in the ports that we visited. This worked out well for us and was certainly cheaper. We were unable to dock in Broome due to issues with the tides. This was disappointing but we accept that this type of thing happens so we made the most of another day at sea. We found that the Sun Princess handled some slightly rough weather in the Great Australian Bight well and we had no problems with sea sickness or getting around the ship. We arrived in Darwin refreshed and ready for our train ride home. We would certainly sail with Princess Cruises again and would welcome the chance to cruise on the Sun Princess again should she be the ship that was available. Read Less

Overall I thought that it was very well run. The staff were wonderful. I think having to pay for bottled water when I had the soda drinks package was a bit steep and the tours were way overpriced. I found better value in seeking a tour once ashore. The food and the service was excellent - 5 star quality restaurant dining daily was awesome. My bed felt amazingly luxurious. The entertainment was great too. A good variety of acts. I think the entertainment in the Wheelhouse bar finished a bit early at night for those of us who were enjoying a dance - particularly on the last night. We were kept well informed of anything relevent. I travelled alone and met some great people from my own state who I will keep in touch with. I would do it again - just need time to forget the seasickness and save some dollars for it. Read Less

Having read many reviews on the Sun Princess it was obvious that some people loved the ship and the experience and others not so. Being a first time cruiser I joined my wife in Adelaide as she had sailed from Fremantle with her mother and step father. To be honest I couldn't get over the ship and it is in very good condition despite some reviewers saying that it should be scraped which is just absurd. The food on board is very good and you have a variety of healthy choices or you can indulge in the not so healthy if you wish (what the hell you are on holidays!) . To purchase soft drinks, milkshakes, mocktails , thick shakes etc you can buy a card that works out to $7 per day for a unlimited amount which is hardly a ripoff. If you like specialty coffees you can buy another card for $40 that gives you 15 coffees or about $2.80 per cup or mug, again hardly a rip off. So you are not forever forking out money for drinks . All the food is free apart from the specialty outlets which we didn't need to visit as the regular food areas were great. Room service (24 hr) is free. The bathrooms are not large but remember it is a ship not a land based hotel. Having said that the size is quite adequate for one person at a time and it is easy to set the shower temp by adjusting the knob with the degrees on it ( it is not rocket science) The gym or fitness centre is very good and not well patronized as with 2,000 passengers the most I saw in the gym was 5 so the selection of equipment free was excellent.. Movies under the stars was a highlight and very relaxing and different experience. The floor shows are weighted to the older generation and are not "West End" standard but entertaining none the less. The staff are very good and nothing is a problem for them. The only issue we had was the elevators started to play up but they were getting a workout with the more mature passengers. We did have the dreaded virus on the ship and action was taken swiftly to put measures in place that would reduce or cease its effects. It still amazed me to see people waving their hands over the food at the buffet pointing to what they wanted rather than just reading the label and asking for the dish by name. At the end of the day the cruise was very enjoyable and excellent value for money when compared to other holidays of the same standard. We have booked a cruise on the Sun Princess again in July 2017.
