This cruise was chosen to celebrate our engagement and as an early honeymoon. The fact that we were due to enjoy New Years Eve celebrations in Hong Kong including the expectation of fireworks the world has watched year after year. Instead no contingency plans were in place to make alternative options available and in fact many people who had made their own plans were impeded in attending these activities by not releasing passports or providing adequate information on port locations etc. Guest engagement was minimal by most of the crew - with only a small handful of staff demonstrating any concern or interest in guest satisfaction. Having provided feedback on a number of occasions throughout the cruise regarding concerns such as customer service, incorrect charges added to account, incorrect food items served, food hygiene standards disregarded by staff in Horizon Court, lack of Guest safety and well-being concerns, provision of fresh water at passenger expense, .... little follow up was shown apart from a request from the Hotel Maitre D' for a meeting to allow me to expand on my concerns. The only outcome from this meeting was to have the additional charges removed from our account and the apology from one member of crew who was held responsible - seemed very unfair given she is only able to work within her capability and the equipment available to her. She showed me personally on the next purchase that she need to swipe my card 3 times before it indicated my premium drinks package (word of advice - check your account daily). The internet is snot work anything.... without access to personal mobile data not even emails were accessible! WE resigned ourselves to utilising it for personal messaging on the ship between ourselves and other passengers and it wasn't even adequate for this task. Read Less

Princess cruise lines needs to relook at the way it does things. The Cruise Tokyo to Singapore was a good cruise but were there any memorable moments? No there were none I could tell you that related to the performance of the Cruise Liner. Why? Accounting! There policy of doing daily preauthorisation on your credit/ Debit Cards followed by a big debit at the end left me and others not smiling at the experience. Why do they need to do pre auths anyway? Most Australians after age 65 have no credit cards, only Debit Mastercard/Visa Cards. A pre auth takes the money out of your bank account. At the end of the cruise they then charge your account for the total bill. A double dip! When challenged, they say its your banks fault. You can wait up to 30 days for the pre auths to disappear. Not acceptable practice! Left a sour taste Princess. We booked two packages pre cruise. 1. A Birthday package for my wife to be in the cabin upon arrival, It was not in our cabin and no paperwork. The package arrived well after departure. No kisses for this performance. 2. An Anniversary package, deluxe version at a cost of $650 pre booked, there was no paperwork in our cabin on arrival. At guest services they were unable to find the paperwork and one of the restaurants featured only in the deluxe version was not on this ship. It was not until after three visits to customer service, we received a letter confirming we had booked the package and told the vouchers would arrive on the day of the package. On the day it was booked for, we received no vouchers only a copy of the letter sent to us earlier. The reason for advertising a different restaurant. None. The guest services found it acceptable. Not a good look Princess! The destinations were good, two destinations were berthed a long way from the facilities available requiring long and costly travel by bus/taxi. Da Nang in Vietnam we were shuttled to a run down resort location with no markets and miles from anywhere. We brokered a taxi ride with another couple, $120aud, to Da Nang for the day. We salvaged a great day from a bad start. Saigon / Ho Chi Minh City. Berthing is 1.5 hrs away. No other cruise lines in sight. Princess charged us $15USD for a shuttle to local markets, which the Tourist body had provided free. The three hr round trip into Vietnams largest city whilst onshore for only 8 hrs made this a dubious option. Besides no alternative was offered. Some of the packages required a 5 hr round trip. You basically had to leave as soon as you got there. Read Less

Ship was dated, service was very poor, dining was average, take a large bank account with you because they will charge you like a wounded bull!! Don't trust what they tell you as we were told that to certain destinations by foot was not possible but it was, again another ploy to sell you their excursions which are grossly overpriced as are their drinks, note you will be paying a daily gratuity fee which is suppose to cover all gratuities but then you will find that they put an 18% gratuity fee on any drinks purchased in the bars, double dipping at it's best. Staterooms are very dated and not particularly clean, fresh towels not presented every day, old ones folded and hopefully you don't notice - yuk! Calls to room service ignored but then again they were overrun with calls as was the front desk. As one person said " you can't complain about the service - there isn't any" Correct!! Would go on a Cruise again, yes but not with Princess NEVER! Read Less
