This was a fantastic package deal for Australian cruises! Embarkation was an absolute disaster standing in the sun for well over 2 and a half hours with no shade or water or explanation given. The first point of contact was from a carnival employee in tears as we entered the igloo building As it was so late, there was no embarkation photographers to be found which was disappointing. Our cabin was on Deck 2 ( 2441) we loved this cabin plenty of room, well set out very close to the lifts. We had early dining which I am undecided about 5 30pm is a little early and I feel we missed a lot of the sail away's because of this. Dining was a little hit and miss with food sometimes cold. The staff were fantastic from cabin attendants to wait staff, in the dining room they were only too happy to help. We went to the buffet a few times, we much preferred the dining room for breakfast and lunch. It seems if you are disabled in anyway you are seated before anyone else so our tip is to carry a walking stick like a lot of our fellow cruises did! All the ports, we did our own thing and had a great time, disembarking in Guam was another disaster, sending way too many people off the ship at the same time with people pushing in, was not fun and needed to be handled better from Carnival. We were led to believe police had to be called. We hated the smoking in the casino, the comedy shows were great I think they had over 70 comedy shows on this cruise. Production shows were good. Some of the headline acts were a bit hit and miss. Overall I think Carnival did a good job for the most part, they were behind the eight ball from the start with many many unhappy cruises who were left out in the heat for so long at the start of this long cruise.

After ten previous Princess cruises on several ships, I've about decided I need to take a break and try another line for a while. The allure of Princess has faded some, though it's hard to switch after becoming an "elite" customer. Food options are much reduced; menus are stale and repetitive; prices continue to escalate for "smaller" items; and the quality of the entertainment is not what it used to be. Embarkation in LA was horrific, with chaos abounding and no one seeming to know a thing. On the plus side, the crew continues to amaze me with their caring attitudes and how they go out of their way to make you feel welcome and important. Mattress and pillow quality are superb. Deck burger grill and International Cafe never cease to amaze and delight. The folks in their shops department went out of their way to help when my wife's wheelchair broke. A wheel snapped off and they fixed it overnight at no cost. Amazing service! Read Less

We’ve done many transatlantic and transpacific cruises, most of which offered many activities and good entertainment for the many sea days. Unfortunately, this 18-day transpacific cruise was sorely lacking in both entertainment and enrichments opportunities, and was a boring experience overall. This was made all the worse by inclement weather that forced us to spend a lot of time indoors. And the few entertainment events that were offered almost always conflicted with dining times. As for the ship itself, Radiance of the Seas is an older ship in great need of some basic refurbishment. The lounge chairs and theatre seating are badly worn (some with tears) and very uncomfortable. The deck floor of our balcony was all rust, and the balcony chairs extremely uncomfortable because of worn seat cushions. The ship’s cruise director was a complete amateur, curt and unfunny. He took great delight in telling us he was leaving on vacation after this cruise, and we were sorry he didn’t leave sooner. The two so-called “enrichment” speakers were equally amateurish and, no doubt, came at little cost to the cruise line. The good news: service overall and in all venues was excellent, and both the service and food in the MDR was very good. Unfortunately, the breakfast and lunch buffet were limited and mediocre at best, with many repeat offerings. Lastly, we were very disappointed at how slovenly many of the passengers were, and that the ship’s staff did not enforce their own dress codes. Men wore shorts and cutoff t-shirts at dinner in the main dining room even on evenings when “casual chic” was requested. When we complained, we were told that people interpret “casual” differently. We’ve had good experience with RCCL in general, but this sailing reflected a definite cut-back in overall quality and care. This sailing was not inexpensive, but definitely over-priced for what was provided and from a comfort standpoint, and will cause us to think twice about RCCL in the future. Read Less

I had been to Vancouver last year to visit my son- what a great place to start a cruise! Diverse city with loads of things to do and places to see! Granville Island, Stanley Park, Gastown to name a few. We ( a friend from school and me, both in our 60’s) were here for a few days before the cruise started and would love to have spent a few more. The embarkation ran smoothly, quickly and easily. Couldn’t have been better. Everyone involved was helpful and pleasant. The Millenium -All public areas and cabin were kept spotlessly clean and tidy although the fittings and fixtures are a bit tired. Refit due next year I believe. We were in aqua class so we had a balcony which, although we didn’t use often, was a great bonus. We had a few issues with the cabin: the aircon didn’t work, the shower drain was blocked on arrival so it had a musty smell, the water didn’t drain well in the shower so the second person in had to paddle and my friend’s bed had a torn sheet. Those were the negatives. However, most were dealt with really quickly( aircon, sheet, blocked drain) and efficiently. The shower drain remained a problem. To “make up” for this we were given an option to dine in one of the speciality restaurants for a night. . Qsine= confused and confusing- strange mix. Blue= great food, service at times dreadful! 40 mins to get breakfast? Improved as time passed. Sommelier brilliant, maitre de tried his best. Main restaurant very good with lots of choice although was surprised it closed at 1. I do realise they needed to start prep for dinner and give the staff some time off but with all the activities it was difficult sometimes to fit food in! The terrace cafe’s range of food was amazing and tasty although seating on sea days will always be a problem. I was a bit worried about the 8 days at sea but I needn't have worried....so much to do, people to meet, food to eat, lectures, shows, shopping and so much more! Entertainment mixed bag- some superb, some dreadful. The show by the celebrity cast was brilliant. The artists who performed around the ship were also excellent. Activities- art class, unexpected and enjoyable although too big a class to learn a lot. Lectures by Celia Garland on wildlife were absolutely brilliant! Get her back! What a joy to listen to her! Quizzes were fun! There were plenty of other things to choose from eg bridge, salsa, basket ball, ping pong or keep fit, massage etc Got to put a bit in here re shops. Beautiful merchandise, great prices but....please, please be aware of the amounts of duty free you are allowed to take back to your country before you are tempted to buy expensive items on board. Service with a smile sums this area up! Attentive without being overbearing. The guys in the cocktail bar were incredible! Captain Alex was good fun and informative. The folk who manned cafe al baccio were also great. In fact all the staff worked so hard but managed to keep a smile on their face...even at 6 in the morning! Ports were great with lots to do and see. Alaska was amazing. Sapporo had a food festival going on(in honour of samna, a local fish) market food stalls in abundance..what a choice! We didn’t need lunch that day as the stall holders were desperate for us to try their wares and we obliged...it would have been rude not to.We missed Shimizu due to typhoon Trami but we had an extra night in Tokyo. Since we had a trip booked to see Mt Fuji we exchanged this and visited Kamakura instead which proved to be amazing...we would never have seen the giant Buddha otherwise. Most of the excursions we booked(whale watching in Alaska(not to be missed!) were very well planned and executed. The Otaru trip was a huge disappointment! Ok, it was raining but the “ nature walk” round a park was overpriced and quite frankly boring! The best bits were tasting a locally grown apple and losing someone who had nipped into a shop. Honestly the worst celebrity excursion I’ve been on! We would have been better exploring the local port town! It sounded far more exciting! We ended in Tokyo and were lucky enough to stay a couple of extra days. The transfer to our hotel was dreadful. It took over two hours(others in a taxi took 20 mins), because we had to stop at a number of hotels. We rode up the same street 3 times. However Tokyo is an amazing city...not enough time. The people are exceptionally polite, most speak some English( for those of us who don’t speak Japanese) and all are very helpful! The toilets? Well, you’ve heard the stories. In the hotel we were in the seats were warmed and there were various buttons to press for various “treats”. There was also what we referred to as a panic button.....just in case you got overwhelmed with the choice available. We did come across a couple of old style ones on our travels which proved a source of much hilarity. I’m going to miss that heated seat in our cold Scottish winter! Shopping opportunities abound and food available to suit all tastes and pockets. Would I do it all again? Absolutely!!! In a minute!!! Read Less

Originally booked this cruise because of the price and because it offered a Transpacific destination. I can't say enough about the crew as they made this trip a once in a lifetime experience! The entire crew always had a smile for you no matter what! We would not hesitate to recommend this ship and this itinerary to anyone considering it! We plan to repeat it again in 2019. We chose to have most meals in the Sapphire dining room, we were happy with the staff (especially Gianni, Tatiana, Kasim, and Yamile) and the food was great. We had e some meals in the Windjammer Cafe and found the food assortment impressive. For evenings we chose the Crown and Kettle Pub, we enjoyed the nightly entertainment by Robbie McNay (yes, we chose to attend every evening that he was performing) and we met a wonderful bartender, named is LeHar , he is one of the most personable crew members we have ever met on any cruise line.

My wife has waited for 40 years to see Hawaii but this trip was the worst ever. The ship was very good but the excursions are not set up for passengers with disabilities as there was nothing that could accommodate an electric portable scooter . We saw nothing of Hawaii only the shops around the dock area. The entertainment was so poor that the passengers were leaving the theatre as the shows were going on , some shows were over a year old as seen on an Alaska cruise before. Staff and food were very good but a complete waste of money for us would not do this again. This could be our last cruise on Celebrity or Royal Carribbean as we feel like that the qualiy has dropped below the standard we expect from them.Tendering is a complete nightmare for those with a disablity as we were informed 3 times that we could take her travel scooter on the tender and when we got to the tender we were informed that it was not possible to take it.

We were traveling with friends who were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. It was their first cruise. I kept having to tell them that "it usually isn't like this." Total chaos getting onto ship. Although I understand it was not the ship's fault that it took over 3 hours standing in the hot warehouse for 3+ hours with 2000+ people with no water or air, someone should have been able to communicate what the problem was. When asked what was going on the answer was "I don't know. I don't work for Royal Caribbean. I work for the Harbor." We were supposed to have traditional dining and knew we were assigned my time dining. Tried to correct it on the 4th floor during the afternoon of 5/6 (since we ate at chops the night before) and were told to come back at 5:30...only to find about 200 people in line trying to correct their dining also. People were taken by streams by dining people around the people standing in line and when we finally were given a "my time dining table," the table we were told to go to was full of people. Then we were told to stand by a column in the middle of the dining room. We finally sat down to a table a little after 7:00 p.m. We asked the head waiter to assign us to that table for the remaining of the cruise (with the exception of our specialty dining reservations). We were assured it was corrected but was told to double check..sure enough it wasn't done. We kept getting it double checked for 3 times...didn't receive a card of our table assignment until 5/13!! No one seems sorry that we were given the runaround. We were finally diamond members and were looking forward to our perks, but this was the worst experience we had ever had. I must say our servers were excellent at our table and this is NO reflection upon them. They were great!! Read Less

Loved this repositioning cruise. We are happy to have lots of sea days. Our arrival was delayed but flights and transfer booked with RCI so boarding guaranteed. Boat due to leave at 4pm and we arrived at the berth at 3.55pm! Embarkation was very quick! Disembarkation in Sydney was very smooth as we had completed immigration onboard a couple of days before arrival. Would probably not bother with the Pacific islands again, especially Suva. Would have liked 2 days in Hawaii rather than Suva. RCI Pearl Harbour tour was good but more time would have been nicer. My only real complaint was the entertainment. Ice cast brilliant, most of the visiting entertainers were very good however the RCI production cast was woeful. The singers were pathetic and the dancers mediocre. Lots of people were complaining. The Cruise director Graham and his team were very professional and lots of fun. They worked really hard and always had a smile on their face. We did have difficulty with decent teabags at the beginning of the cruise. The Fields and Select brand is mere dust. Eventually Twinings was supplied. We also ran out of lettuce, bananas and mushrooms before the end of the cruise. Our Wait staff was exceptional as was our room Steward We would going on this lovely ship again Read Less

We liked the itinerary, the time of year and the size of the ship. The trip was perfect. There were plenty of sea days to enjoy the daily activities, interesting ports of call and thankfully perfect weather. The onl;y disappointment was missing Mystery Island because of a lapse in the weather but t his happens, Food was outstanding even though a previous reviewer could not eat between 5pm and 5,30pm!!! Is that a problem? Yes, some of the shore excursions were ridiculously expensive but you could opt out and organise them privately yourselves at a fraction of the cost. The evening entertainment was brilliant with a series of professional individual musicians and the ship's cast with wonderful singers and dancers. THe music every night gave everyone choices between classical, dance , big bands and the popular piano man. TH e Cruise Director was the best we have ever seen on any ship. Her personality and enthusiasm generated an atmosphere of excitement and fun. Her side kick was also outstanding. The daily trivia session was a highlight for those who attended. Our memories centered on the friendliness and competence of the whole crew. Everything worked! It seems to be a feature of Holland America.It encourages us to continue cruising with them after 4 happy cruises. Bring on the next cruise! Read Less

Why are disabled cabins either at the front or back of the ship? A trek to either the theatre or the restaurants. Our cabin 6003 was at the front, a good size with a pillar ( ideal for tying the wheelchair and walker to whilst crossing the Tasmin Sea ! ) It was clean but scruffy and worn, we placed a blanket over the sofa to cover stains and another over a chair to cover the threadbare arms. There was a dangerous narrow ramp leading to the balcony and a wider wooden ramp on the balcony itself which meant you couldn't turn a wheelchair round. As the cabin was under the bridge it had an electronic door curtain which could be operated from the room or the bridge, in theory that was fine but who installed it so the curtain closed over the door opening and not on the other side? You had to place the curtain behind the chair to be able to get out of the balcony door, the curtain hooks had broken and had to be re attached on each opening. As it was the cabins' situaition was so windy it was rarely able to be used on sea days. A great shame. We chose this adventure of a lifetime for the destinations and because we had enjoyed a wonderful 40 night cruise from Southampton to Singapore on ms Rotterdam 18 months previously. A mid ship disabled cabin with a restricted view which was lovely and really easy to move around the ship. Not only was it a very different ship it felt like we were travelling with a completely different company. We chose to eat in the Lido most days, the food was acceptable and the young staff really lovely and helpful. Its a great shame some of the passengers from the US had a need to be so rude to them. And they seemed to think it was beneath them to use the supped hand gel ! The Lido, like the rest of the ship had some serious maintenance problems including water leaks which could be experienced at the tables, whilst queuing to be served and whilst trying to walk on the main narrow walkthrough. I fell heavily on a wet floor causing unnecessary pain to my arthritic body. The cane chairs were worn and very scruffy, some had been replaced but ms Noordam really is in need of a major refit. We tried room service for breakfast on 8 occasions and only twice did we get what we ordered, we tried it for dinner just once and after a microwave burger and cold pasta arrived I had to fetch pizza from the Lido. Really not good. They also tried to charge for a bottle of vodka that we ordered but wasn't delivered. Entertainment. Oh dear ms Noordam really got that wrong ! During the first show the 'comedian' referred to someone as a "spas", we left the theatre and it didn't really get much better after that. If you wanted a seat it was best to get to the theatre approx 45-60 mins before any show or lecture and take a book ( I actually read 18 during this voyage !) The theatre has restricted viewing from the upper levels and really wasn't big enough for the amount of passengers on board. On the second sea day from Vancouver I asked the cruise director John what entertainment had been organised for the long sea days leading to and after Hawaii, a total of 10, his reply was "nothing, this is what head office have told us to do" The last long cruise was filled with quizzes, interesting lectures, art classes, craft classes, dance classes, language classes, music throughout at different venues throughout the day and evening and a cinema, deck games a brilliant library with games and puzzle boards, dancing and happy hour in several bars. Onboard ms Noordam there was so little to do, in the end we stopped looking at the 'Whats on' for the following day as there was nothing unless you wanted to spend at the highly priced spar, shop, play bingo or visit the casino. Its such a shame that with a total of 20 sea days that more thought into entertaining the guests wasn't given. It was a cruise that seemed to appeal to an 'older' passenger, the average age approx 70. That being the case then why couldn't the entertainment happen during the day or early evening? BB Kings was something we had been looking forward to, unfortunately we only went twice, same songs, same set list and it started at 8.45pm, by 9.15 the audience were up dancing. Great, except that when the band took a break at 9.30 the audience departed for their beds !!! Why not make the set longer at an earlier time and just 2 performances a night to correspond with the timings of the theatre show ? All the empty space on the ship and it could and should have been used and enjoyed. After all the cruise should be all about the passenger experience. Happy and contented passengers will spend and they will cruise again with that line. We are wanting to visit South America, a must on the bucket list, but although Holland America have many interesting itineraries for that area we are looking at other companies after this experience.

We had been looking for a cruise out of Australia for several years. We had previously booked two cruises which were taken for full charters so when this one became available we reserved a cabin on the day it opened. We made our own air arrangements, using frequent flyer miles to cover the cost. We left the US on June 15 and arrived in Sydney on June 17. Our transpacific flight on Qantas was excellent. We had lie flat Business Class seats and appreciated being able to extend our legs throughout the flight. We spent four nights at the Park Royal Hotel at Darling Harbor and would recommend this hotel for a pre-cruise stay. I had polio as a child and now use a scooter for mobility. We had an accessible room at the hotel which had easy access to both the room and the restroom. Hotel staff were personable and knowledgeable. We purchased I-Venture cards for site seeing which did save us some money. We had a lot of rain while in Sydney and did not manage to do as much as we had planned but still greatly enjoyed our time. We boarded the Sun Princess on June 21. Boarding was very easy. We arrived early at White Bay Cruise Terminal but were taken to check-in immediately. From arrival to entering the ship took fifteen minutes at most. There were elevators from the entry level to the boarding level in the terminal. There was an airline type bridge from the terminal to the ship. Our cabin, Baja 305, was an inside accessible room. The cabin was adequate but not outstanding. The bathroom had a ramp for entry from the cabin. Although the door to the room and the bath was large enough to use my scooter the ramp was a challenge. I prefer ships with a flat threshold between the room and the bath. The placement of the shampoo and shower gel was not properly situated. I must use the shower bench and when seated the shampoo and gel are very difficult to reach. Further the seat has a metal bar at the back so you cannot sit upright on the seat but must lean forward. This is less than ideal. The drain system around the shower worked well. The shower curtain had a difficult to use pull bar and when seated could not be easily pulled. The toilet height was satisfactory. There was a hand bar on only one side of the toilet. I prefer when there are two bars, one on each side of the toilet as that just seems safer. There was enough room in the cabin to store my scooter as well as all our clothes and luggage. We had the new comfortable mattresses. The pillows were less of a hit with us as they were too fluffy if you are a side sleeper. We both disliked how the pillows pushed up against our faces. The duvet was very heavy so we took it off at night. Using a scooter on this ship was easier than on previous Princess ships we have been on as the halls seem to be about five or six inches wider and I could pass the housekeeping carts easily. Our steward kept our room clean and well-supplied. As this ship originated in Sydney we did expect some dining differences between the ships originating in the US. Although our waiter, his assistant, and the head waiter were excellent the food left our taste buds wishing for more. If you do not like fish and lamb this is not the ship for you. I lost ten pounds on this cruise and my husband lost seventeen. Also, taking fifty days of a seventy-five day cruise we expected a different menu each night. The menus were repeated. What few beef entrees offered were tough. Even the prime rib was tough. Only the beef fillet medallions were tender. You could, however, have all the prawns you wanted. One day we saw they were serving "Crispy Fried Chicken" at lunch. That sounded good to us until we got our meal. It was pressed meat with a strange off flavor. During the day we especially enjoyed the trivia contests and the enrichment lectures. In the evening we were pleased to have on-demand movies in our stateroom as after full days on excursions we seldom felt like going to the planned entertainment. An assistant cruise director, Jamie from England, was especially worth commendation. He did an excellent job with trivia and other activities. One night he was the highlighted entertainer doing a selection of songs. I would say he was better than some of the "fly-on" entertainers. Overall the service was excellent with the exception of handicap access. Who knows why but at least twice we were taken from inside the ship to pass along the promenade deck and then re-enter the ship before joining another line. This is a problem for scooter and wheelchair users as the lip across the ramps between the outside and inside promenade deck causes increased chance of tipping. I especially did not appreciate being told I was too slow going over the threshold. It would have been better to have help than to be chastised. Also, when going off or returning to the ship I was always helped on the gangway but not at the thresholds on promenade deck. I preferred to exit and re-enter the ship on any other decks. After leaving Sydney our ship stopped in Darwin, Australia; Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia; Hong Kong; Beijing, China; Inchon, South Korea; Vladivostok, Russia; Busan, South Korea; Hakodate, Japan; Tokyo, Japan; Seward, Alaska; Icy Strait Point, Alaska; Glacier Bay, Alaska; Juneau, Alaska; Ketchikan, Alaska; Vancouver, Canada; Victoria, Canada; and San Francisco, California. Our favorites were Darwin where we took a ship's tour to see the Jumping Crocodiles, Kota Kinabalu where we took a ship's tour to a zoo, Tokyo where we took a ship's tour, and Vladivostok where we took an independent tour with "Primorye Explore". We wanted to love Beijing but the air pollution was extreme we felt like we were breathing soup. We did go to the Great Wall and Forbidden City. We arrived in San Francisco on August 8 where we took a bus tour to the Golden Gate Bridge and then disembarked on August 9. There were only about 100 people disembarking in this port so it was easy. Overall this is the oldest ship we have sailed on. It was nice having new mattresses and on-demand movies. However, spending more money on food and repairing the many leaks from ceilings and public restrooms would have been money well spent. Read Less

Second time on the Solstice,this time with 3 other couples. This is an excellent ship with excellent staff and great food and drink. My wife is in a wheelchair permanently and she loved it as well. The crew helped whenever we asked and we had a great time. We were in a wheelchair room 7139 and it was excellent and suited my wife perfectly. Nyoman and his crew at Martini, Amazing Randy in the passport, Radu in Cellarmasters, Yan in the dining room all looked after our beverage requirements and Giovanni and Judas for the dining room for dinner were sensational and I almost forgot Sunshine in the Oceanview Cafe. We went to Tuscan twice, Silk Harvest and Murano once each. We had the premium drink package and even though it cost a packet because it was 18 nights I would not do it any other way. Never had to stress about bill shock and we certainly got our value from it. The onboard shows were good and never the same artist. Auckland,Papette, Moorea, Bora Bora,Maui and then Honolulu. We drove around Papette and that was average as it was Sunday and most things were closed, Swam with the sharks and rays in Moorea and then Jet Ski around Bora which was the highlight. Everyone enjoyed a fantastic cruise which was all but full of passengers but it never seems crowded and the 8 of us were able to find tables and chairs when needed for our group or if we split up at times it was never an issue. Can't wait until we go on this ship again. Read Less

About a week prior to embarking on our cruise on Legend of the Seas I decided to read some reviews. I was shocked to see it receive ratings of 1 and many many complaints. Those reviews completely dampened my enthusiasm for the cruise and we set off with very low expectations, and feeling a little depressed at the thought of Christmas at sea with such an awful experience ahead of us. I am pleased to say that we had an experience that was completely opposite to what others had described. Every single staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. I could not find any fault whatsoever with any of them. My husband is disabled and even the ground staff went out of their way to assist us. We fly often and never receive the kind of attention we did from these staff. A big thank you to them!!! There were rarely the big queues others described in the coffee shop - at peak times yes, but that happens in every coffee shop. I had also read that there were big queues for everything, but we did not experience those at all. The crew had a great numbering system to avoid that happening. There was a great variety of food available but I have to highlight the Chef's Table as being an absolute standout!!! Five courses with matching wines was amazing value at $100pp. We loved it. So, my advice to first time cruises - be careful what you read! Read Less
