We are past Carnival cruisers and Celebrity and Holland America. We picked this cruise for value and convenience. That said I have to say: not what we expected. If we knew these tips we would have been prepared. Con: We got two flat hard pillows. Felt like a stack of towels. Only 2! Ask for better pillows right away. We couldn’t get into our cabin until 45 minutes or so after the ...

Boarding at Brisbane Terminal was great, straight on , not like P&O. No problems taking on water. Could take 2 bottles of wine if you wish. After 5 P&O trips just before, this is like a big jump in quality and quantity. Wind Jamer ( or as the comedian called it the Food Jamer) restaurant was great, a different selection of food from around the world most nights ( plus usual meals ), a lot ...

Worst ever cruise

Have been on 19 cruise with Princess but this the worst ever. Besides the Covid which hubby got, and we do not blame them as a lot of protocols but could do better. The weather, we know beyond their control, missed three ports, but compensated. The real issue was the lack of honest communications. Got to Melbourne finally after three changes to date and change to itinerary. Meant people who had ...

First time Princess - not disappointed

Our first cruise post - covid, and with a new cruise line for us. We really didn't pick Princess, it picked us, at it fit within our travel plans to QLD. That said we were very excited to try Princess, and we have a couple of Elite Princess friends. Starting at the beginning, the embarkation process was a breeze at Brisbane (the trip to the terminal though is less inspiring). The only thing to ...

A great cruise on a great ship

We originally booked this cruise to have a break from work as my husband and I are self-employed. You can't help but relax on this beautiful ship. However, my head agency (I'm a travel agent), made this cruise our conference cruise. So this worked in really well for me. The crew on the ship are so happy to be back. They were so welcoming and nothing was a problem. They would all say "Hello" as ...

Too short but glad to be back

Booked this cruise months ago when the booking re opened here in Australia. Wish I had booked something longer as just settled in and then off again. 3 Nights way too short. The embarkation process was a breeze, much easier and faster than ever before. The crew were so welcoming and glass to be back. The ship was immaculately clean and empty. Only about 70% booked so easy to get a seat by ...

This was our first cruise back with Princess since Covid. We have sailed many times with them before. Firstly let me say that the crew were great and boarding and disembarkation were a dream. (as usual) Our room was a balcony and was very comfortable although, as usual no sofa. The shower was tiny and allowed for no movement. Formalities to do with safety were quick and easy. Whilst we had ...

Princess took money from my visa without authority.

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

The cruise was ok, but not a lot of activities for a 50-year-old. I had 100%prepaid for the cruise in May. They take your visa onboarding the ship and take out a $100.00 deposit. On the cruise, I saw the spending being deducted and I could see all the transactions being deducted from my account. The day after I returned home Princess deducted a further $650.00 from my account. I ...

Don't expect a good internet connection

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This could have been a great cruise if the internet connection was working as advertised. The connection was supposed to be able to stream movies and video but could barely load a webpage for most of the trip. The technical support wanted to help but admitted the connection quality was terrible and there was nothing that could be done. Though some may think an enforced break from the internet ...

VERY OLD SHIP

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This ship can only be weeks away from being scrapped. The public areas are fine but the cabins and public toilets are out of the ark. Flaking grout everywhere you looked. A BIG gripe was the horrible cheap toilet paper and tissues. There are no air dryers that we found anywhere. Of the 7 main meals we had in one of the main dining rooms, 5 were bland & tasteless but 2 were good.Nicely ...
