14 day cruise to Australia and New Zealand

My husband and I chose this cruise because of the itinerary and our past experience with the vegetarian food on Oceania. We have only sailed on the larger Oceania ships - this was our first time on one of their smaller ships. We could not have been more disappointed in the food quality and selection. The limited number of options were vegetables that were either fried, soaked in oil or in a ...

I planned my Australia and New Zealand vacation with Princess Cruises so I could see the most I could within the 24 Days I had down-under. I did this even though Princess Cruises does not have a single supplement so I paid suite passage for two people. Princess Cruises was the only cruise line that offered the land tour. Since this was my first trip to the region I wanted to see as much of ...

Excellent Ship and Cruise

Was hesitant about booking on Ruby Princess based on previous reviews. Yes, the ship is showing signs of wear in some places but is extremely well maintained. Food was very good in restaurants, and other free options such as pizza and burgers if the buffet became repetitive. Our balcony cabin on deck 14 was clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Shower a bit on small side though. The staff were ...

After several enjoyable Cruises with Carnival we chose to go with Princess Cruises from Sydney 13nights to New Zealand, we were told Carnival was a 3 star cruise line and Princess was a 4 star cruise. When we phoned Princess we told them of our dietary requirements and were told that we would be well catered for and there would be no problems with those requirements. Nothing could have been ...

Terrible value & experience

We chose this cruise because it linked to another cruise that would be ending and went to a destination we wanted to see. This was advertised to us as a 5 1/2 star ship. It is a 4 1/2 star ship with 3 1/2 star food and service. Embarkation: The porter staff was gruff and borderline rude. We were told if we had alcohol in our checked luggage we had to remove it or it would be confiscated. ...

Hi, I choose this cruise as I wanted to go to Kangaroo Island and Phillip Island to see the Fairy Penguins, had to fly from Queensland for the cruise. First thing that went wrong was that I was told several times on the phone that I could buy a drink package when I got on the cruise, how wrong was that, after being told to go to 3 bars and the service desk finally was told NO they don’t do drink ...

Standing in a queue with 2000 people to disembark in Auckland NZ while 2 staff look up each passenger manually in a book. I'll find out why in an hour or so. Worst disembarcation I've had in 30 years. Crew are stiff. Food is terrible (stale bread served up with dinner multiple times). Cabin so small there is no chair or table. Not enough space to walk down the side of the bed. Public spaces ...

This cruise was on our bucket list and we have been looking forward to it for a long time. We got on the cruise ship with no problems. When we went up to the Lido deck the windows had not been cleaned from previous cruise. This was a 2 week cruise and they never cleaned them. By the end of the cruise, it was very hard to see out of them while you ate. The food was very disappointing. Not a lot of ...

Chose this cruise purely to sail through the Fjords of New Zeland and set up 1TB of memory on a brand new phone at huge expense to record it all.. We took a new $400 massager for pre existing ailments which got confiscated at embarkment. All meals are extremely sub par,tasteless and repetitive...hope you like pork..Bacon is always hard ..ALWAYS..The meals you pay for in the total price are ...
