First time on Royal, it was OK, still enjoyed it tho!
"Overall, we did enjoy the cruise, and Oh, excursions from the ship was ok, one of our excursions only had a small number of people so they used a 24 seat van to transport us, and we were in the last row, and there was no window for us to look out from.I feel tho one of the dining room staff, the lady who led us to our private table one night in the Allegro dining room was discriminatory...."Read More

Embarkation:~ Fast and efficient. Within 1 hour of arriving at the cruise terminal we had left our luggage, passed through check in, passport control and security. We had attended our muster station, left our carry on bags in the stateroom and were sitting eating in the Horizon Court. Stateroom:~ Balcony cabin Kept extremely clean and tidy by our cabin steward (Jeffrey) who was ...

There were 10 of us that cruised this time. This was our 3rd Princess cruise, this time from Sydney to Hobart-Port Arthur-Kangaroo Island. We had smooth sailing for the first half and lumpy seas with a swell for the second half. On the final leg we sailed through a meeting of three rain events the caused us to be late in getting into Sydney Harbour. The pilot boat couldn’t get out to ...

Will definitely cruise on this ship again if we have the chance. Embarkation was a breeze we were on board within 30 minutes of port arrival. Disembarkation was also good also around 30 mins after joining cue. We have cruised with R.C, P&O, and Carnival previously and found this ship to be in most aspects a cut above. The decor is clearly more premium including the stateroom. Staff were ...

I guess the size of your dividend matters if you hold Princess Cruises shares but the size of the queues matters if you are a passenger on their new giant ships. And I really wonder how much longer the wonderful crews they employ can keep carrying their reputation and where the cruise industry is heading with the number of passengers they are cramming onto their ships. OK this was our 8th ...

FOOD Worst Bacon and Coffee of any cruise ship. Poached eggs came out without and white - just a yolk. Worst breakfast Service ever - 45 minutes for eggs to arrive. Cold toast turned up 5 minutes later. It was only an 8 day cruise but repetion of menu wasn't great. None of these had a huge impact on overall experience. We didn't starve :) SHIP Worst designed Ship we've sailed on. ...

We are a couple who joined two other couples chose this cruise because it started and ended in Auckland NZ. We have done around 20 cruises including three half world cruises over 30 years from Ponant to Paul Gaugin through Cunard, Sun Line, Carnival, P & O (UK), Princess and Celebrity. At 3000 passengers it was the largest ship we had been on (our other cruises were all on 2000 or less ...

Do not take the cruise to NZ starting and ending in Auckland. We just got back (the 2025 date is for next year obviously). We went 2024 February. Got to the airport and Princess has organized a taxi. This was extremely awkward as the guy told us how poor he was a lot and we felt we needed to give him a tip ( this was our fault). Embarkation started around 11am and was efficient. The room ...

I would never recommend this cruise ship to anyone. We joined this cruise to celebrate our special wedding anniversary - this is our 7th cruise - but unfortunately its all about money and not passengers. Our towels in cabin were not changed for 6 days - apparently the laundry couldnt cope with daily changes. The cafes food was the same for 14 days, tables not cleared when passengers left - ...

We chose this cruise as was in the tail end of the school holidays for us and it left from our hometown of Auckland and came back to Auckland. This was a joint cruise which already had people who had boarded in Sydney and who disembarked when we hit our second port of Sydney. Once there, another load of people embarked. The organisation of those of us in transit in Sydney was much better ...
