We really enjoy Princess, in particular the level of service experienced onboard is 1st class. Food was excellent, the Staff, as usual were excellent. The Cruise Director, Jody was innovative and met with Guests every sea day for a Coffee/Chat. This is the first time I had experienced something along that line. Her Team also were energetic and involved with the Guests. Our Captain, Tony Ruggero regularly walk around the ship meeting with and talking to any passengers who liked a chat. And he did so with a high degree of interest in what they had to say. The weather on sea days during this voyage was ordinary to say the least, however, the up side was that on each Port day the sun came out and weather was close to,perfect. I can do without Suva as a Port, there are many more inviting islands of Fiji that would be better for a day stopover. Pago Pago is an interesting Port with many worthwhile drives at very reasonable prices. Hawaii and Her Islands speak for themselves as does Tahiti. Swimming with the Sharks and Sting Rays is a must and there are plenty of options available on shore. Land Tours around the Tahitian Islands are interesting and the scenery is to die for. Some of the most beautiful scenes you could ever wish for. Then onto NZ, Auckland is a Capital City and as expected. The Hop on Hop Off Bus is worth the money with many very interesting places visited. Then onto Bay of Islands. Beautiful from the sea/land, even more so from a Helicopter flight. The locals put on a Market with many wonderful and interesting items for sale. (Much better than the normal Markets) found in other places. Now the Ship, Sea Princess is showing her age, however she is still in very clean and presentable shape. Food onboard was very good with a number of changes to previous menus. The Pub Lunch has an expanded menu with a larger variety other than Fish and Chips, which is still very tasty. I would recommend you attend the Cooking Demonstrations which not only highlight a number of dishes, it is also a light hearted comical and entertaining experience. We did Anytime Dining which worked very well with no problems in finding a table. The Buffett was always available with a good selection of various style meals with regular presentation of menus of specific style and taste from various countries. For outside eating, the Pool Grill presented hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage on a roll, salads, chips etc. we never went hungry. We had an Interior Cabin A204 at the front of the ship. A small cabin but it did have the essentials, cupboard/hanging space, plenty of drawers and a workable (if not large) bathroom. In rough weather you could feel the larger waves, not that it caused us any discomfort, we were just rocked to sleep at night. When you run into 7mtr. waves, one must expect a bit of movement, however that just added to our experiences. The onboard entertainment was not up to the usual Princess standard. Some good shows, some not so good. The Production shows were very good, just not as many as we have experienced in the past. All in all, our group of 7 adults enjoyed the cruise and I would do the same itinerary again. We have done this cruise twice in past years. Read Less

35 nights round trip from Sydney (no flights) on Sea Princess. Met great people, shared a table of eight in second sitting, now lifelong friends. Dining experience is second to none. Good menus, well cooked food and fantastic ambience. Great production shows, especially "Encore" - brilliant. Unfortunately blow in entertainers were second rate and only one female singer in 5 weeks. Movies were plentiful, some, even current. Wines on board very expensive as were the shore tours. Hawaii Islands were exciting, absolute highlights of the cruise. The Big Island (Hawaii) has two ports, Kona & Hilo. Kona is the dry side of the island so book your sightseeing there. Helicopter flights in particular. Ours was cancelled in Hilo due to poor visibility and heavy rain. The three ports in Tahiti are glorious, lush and green with turquoise waters and the people are beautiful. The Princess experience is great - the staff and crew are very well trained to cater for the fussiest passengers and they do it generously with a smile. Would we do it all over again ? ......................Oh yeah ! Read Less

Thought it would be a good way to have a bit of a look at our great country Australia but it was full of geriatrics on walking frames, sticks and in wheelchairs who were rude and whinged all the time. The poor staff were so tolerant - they deserved a medal! Catching a lift was impossible. Going to a show in the theatre wasn't on either, as they got there super early and saved the seats and lord help you if you tried to grab one! After 10pm the ship was empty and silent. The DJ in the disco tried his best but most nights it was just us and 1 or 2 others there. The onboard activities were mostly geared for the oldies too. Bingo, crafts and a bit of line dancing. No pool activities. The ports of call were generally good. Apparently, any cruise longer than 21 days is mostly filled with the elderly. The children's club was closed! The cabin was clean, comfy and quiet. Read Less
