A Most Disappointing Experience

We had great expectations of this cruise as we had not visited this part of the world before. The itinerary suited us as the ship sailed to Melbourne, our home town, so we only had to deal with one long flight. ...

This was a special cruise as I'm a travel agent and completed Princess' Education Program. For me, it was particularly special as it was my first time back to Vietnam since 1971 when I was there for non-tourist ...

The magnificent Golden Princess?!!!

The Captain always concluded his PAs with, “Please enjoy the magnificent Golden Princess.” Sadly we didn’t find the Golden Princess to be magnificent at all but very tired and with problems. For us, this had ...

Have had better cruises

This was my 8th Princess cruise and probably my worst one. Embarkation was a bit hopeless but that was nothing unusual, Princess contractors and Chinese officialdom are not a good combination. My cabin was clean and ...

The 'majestic' Golden Princess is lovely to look at, but not so great on board.

We chose this cruise because of its suitability for our plans; ie we wanted to spend time in Beijing (seeing the Great Wall etc etc) and the Cruise Itinerary would see us right home (through Japan, Taipei, Bali etc) ...
