We chose this cruise as it was short and left from our home city. We had not been on a cruise before. After this cruise, I would not recommend that anyone affected at all by motion sickness book a cruise, even with the medications available for purchase in chemists. The activities available on a cruise, particularly outdoor activities for children, are significantly affected by the ...

Sea Princess New Zealand Cruise 4-18 Jan 2018 CABIN A620 Norovirus Sea Princess motto should be changed from "Come back new" to "Come back poor and barely alive". Having had twelve cruises with several cruise lines we are fairly aware of what to expect when cruising. We saw news headlines stating that the Sea Princess had had approximately 200 passengers ill with the norovirus but ...

The ship is in need of refurbishing from the public areas to the cabins.They tout the "movies under the stars" but at 15 degrees who wants to spend 2 hours under a blanket watching. And they have the movies why not show them in comfort? Also, the food was bad not enough to make one sick, but enough so that the night I ordered rack of lamb the waiter rushed over to the table and cut it up for ...

I cannot fault the embarkation, it was quick and easy. Cannot fault the staff. Everyone was extremely pleasant. Cannot fault the cleanliness.....cabin and all amenities were spotless. We had a balcony cabin, it was a tad small, but for 2 nights not a problem. The bed was brilliant, the best I have slept on during a cruise. However, from the moment we boarded, there was a lack of everything, ...

Firstly, let me say that my husband and I have had 9 cruises with different cruise lines.They include P&O, Royal Caribbean Radiance of the seas and Princess Lines. Firstly our friends and us were to have dinner together every night in the dining room. But unfortunately the cruise ship had given my husband and I a 6pm sitting, our friends 8pm sitting. I personally asked the Matre'd if he could ...

Embarking was a nightmare, The service all throughout the ship was a disgrace, the attitude the same. Food in the restaurant was very poor, the buffet all over the place, terrible food. Chops grill, total slop cooked and presented badly.The people on the table next to us left there un eaten food and walked out. This cruise for us was a sample for one we have very sadly booked and paid for ...

Well where do I start.!! This was my families first cruise. Both late forties with two teenagers. We booked the sampler cruise as we expected it to be of the highest standard as this cruise company lure first timers like myself into a world of cruising. How wrong I was. We arrive at the terminal and are forced to wait 3 hours on the hot sun to check in. No drinks offered. No anything. No ...

First cruise and never again with Royal Caribbean. Where do I start. Waited 3 hours in the hot sun to check in because RC hadn't trained the local check in staff and their system kept crashing. Stuff like this happens and is part of life. How did RC handle it. By ignoring it. So Bad start. Walked into the ship and left to fend for ourselves. No staff present except door scanners. Eventually ...

Sea SICK Princess...Norovirus News

This is not going to be a glowing review of what a nice cabin we had, what good food, etc. because it was a horrible two week holiday cruise on the Sick...Sea Princess. My review is about the deplorable conditions and lack of accountability on the Sea Princess that allows for the spreading of the norovirus. Our cruise ended today (January 4, 2018) as we arrived back in the port of Brisbane after ...
