Plese dont waste your money

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

bobbysue777
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

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 - ...

14 day NZ cruise with one day in Sydney

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

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 ...

Queues, Queues and more queues

Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Royal Princess

Ned Buntline
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Check-In When arriving at the terminal in Sydney it was just under 30deg.C and we couldn't believe the length of the queue. Once inside the terminal (and in the shade), we were faced with further massive queues. Eventually collected our medallions and were ready to join another massive queue. Cabin (Stateroom) Very clean and looked after by the excellent Fernando. Ship Very well ...

Great accommodations but mediocre service

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

BensonCPL
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

My wife and I and another couple who joined us, had New Zealand on our bucket list and found the cruise itinerary to be very interesting. I have to say the embarkation and debarkation process was outstanding, including going on port calls. Princess has that down pat. We only wish the amount of staff was available throughout the ship. We loved our room and our cabin steward. We have never been ...

Elite and worse trip ever.

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

Professional traveler
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

As an elite member I have never been so disappointed. The food was awful. One day I was almost in tears because of the menu on the buffet, being gluten free I had very little options. I understand the MDR is much better option but if order a meal the day before sometimes I just don't get there. Case in point I ordered GF fish and chips for pub lunch but completely slept through it. ...

Crowded, but generally sweet staff. Would do it again

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This 14-day cruise to New Zealand from Sydney was my husband’s second and my third. We are in our late 60s and cost-conscious. We were bound to be excited by the weather as it was summer there and we were in winter at home. We have not done a lot of traveling outside of the United States. We did not use a travel agent, but I spend a lot of time on research. Because of what I suspect was a ...

Amazing adventure

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

Utah Cruising Couple
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This ship has an open promenade area, which we like. There were lots of music and other events in this area which were very, very good. The evening shows were generally wonderful, with a few exceptions. The Princess singer and dancers were amazing. Our balcony cabin was just fine. We don't normally do a balcony but we enjoyed it on this cruise. The sports up top were quite disappointing because of ...

A very expensive cruise spoiled by changing our premier package week before we boarded - 6 out of 11 first cruise experience

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Royal Princess

Mitchell familt
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise to go on holiday with a family of 11 since we travelled on board the Royal princess in 2015 for my brother's wedding on board. We travelled on Princess Majestic to Sydney and New Zealand in 2018 and it was brilliant - 5 out of 5. However, it appears since Princess have sold out to Holland American Lines from Cunard they want to a) charge you for everything that ...

Definitely Not a Royal Experience ! 10 night QLD cruise - 4 ports This was our first big holiday since covid & we decided to stay in Australia & cruise our beautiful QLD coast thinking on Princess it would be a relaxing luxury experience like our pre covid cruising experiences had been. Sadly it was anything but. From start to finish it seemed costs had been cut everywhere. Definitely no ...
