We had a great cruise

Right from the start our cruise got off to a wonderful start: The new Brisbane Cruise Terminal works well as the whole process from arrival to being on board having a delicious lunch in the dining room only took 30 minutes. The ship is in impressive condition given that it is 20 years old. The decore was very much to our liking. It is an elegant ship with staff keeping it in sparkling condition. ...

We did the 5 day cruise which we reviewed and have now stayed onboard for the 7 day coral coast cruise. Unfortunately the cruise continues to go downhill with many more Covid cases onboard and lots of cabin doors with tables in front of piled high with dirty dishes and polystyrene food containers. The restaurants are not open for lunch ,the grill for burgers are also not open at all for both ...

We loved this ship even though twenty years old because the venues such as the Explorers Lounge and Wheelhouse Bars are not found on the bigger new ships. We had not seen a similar venue to the Universal Lounge on other Princess ships. This is a great venue for production shows and big bands and as we love dancing, great for dancing the night away. The entertainment in all these venues was ...

I’d never done a cruise in Australia and thought this would be a good way to have a holiday without leaving the country. I hadn’t left Victoria since Covid hit. Originally booked as a 12 night cruise which was changed to a 5 night and 7 night cruise a few weeks prior to departure for ‘operational’ reasons. Pre-booked excursions were refunded and had to be booked again and we had a day in Brisbane ...

Great start; sad ending

After two and a half years and 6 cancelled cruises, we were finally away! Originally, it was to be a 12-day coastal cruise ex-Brisbane. However, fate stepped in when that was cancelled and made into two back-to-back cruises. Sadly, that cut out out our visit to Newcastle and our much anticipated Hunter Valley excursion. Oh well, never mind. Apart from the proliferation of those damned masks and ...

Disappointing cruise

Like most people we have cruised with Princess many times and are Elite status which doesn’t appear to make any difference. We were in a suite C628 which was a good size and in reasonable condition though looking very dated. The balcony had the blue plastic flooring which was loose and curling in the corners making it very dangerous and white paint flakes over the furniture and floor. We ...

Great Cruise Under Difficult Circumstances

We chose the cruise because it was basically the first Australian cruise post pandemic. It was sailing to all Australian ports so travel insurance was unnecessary and covid risk was minimal. There was a crew covid outbreak prior to the cruise commencing and Princess handled the situation very professionally. The crew were isolated and we were offered a full refund if we were ...

The Medallion is a total failure

The only decent dining in the whole ship was the Main Dining area. The buffet has very little variety and poor quality. Drink service was pitiful with massive waitstaff cuts. 20 minutes for a beer in the Casino and not much better elsewhere. Th Medallion app was a failure dropping out on staff frequently and was easier to go to the bar directly and wait for drink. The cocktail list had about 6 ...

Struggling to keep afloat!

We expected this to be a nice return to cruising based out of Brisbane. We found the boarding process poor. The level of organization was poor and people were herded into a long queue for security checking. So much for social distancing. Our cabin was a suite and we found it quite comfortable. Though getting dated. We had all we wanted here. Our steward 'disappeared' at day 5 so may had ...

Checking in was easy, but security was a nightmare. Stay 1.5 metres apart they say, then they cram people shoulder to shoulder in the security area, which had five security screens fitted and only three in use. Cabin was small but comfortable and not having to go to a muster spot for a long uncomfortable lecture was great, do it on your TV screen. Dining Room was a fiasco, make a booking ...
