We stay in Hong Kong before the cruise which is the best thing to do. We embark very smoothly in hong kong and disembarkation in Brisbane was great. While the ship is looking old and could do with revamping, I really loved the cabin, while I normally don't like a soft bed it was okay. I ate in the buffet for most lunches and the selection was great especially as a diabetic I loved having choices of dessert that are sugar-free and tasted great. Entertainment and activities where good but more activities that tailor to the guest would great i.e more craft. The front desk had long lines during the first 2 days of the cruise. While the tender ports you had to wait longer if you were not an organized tour but as experience cruisers, we expected that. Of all the sun princess have some great points and only a few issues that can be rectified Read Less

We are a retired couple from the UK. Seasoned travellers and been on over 50 cruises with all the major players. Never been to any of these places so we were attracted to this cruise. Big mistake. The ship is old, tired and needs to be out to sleep. Rust everywhere and painting over it doesn't help. The smell on our deck was revolting. We didn't need to ask what it was - that was obvious. What I found odd was the fact that they couldn't fix it. Thousands of pounds spent to have 19 days putting up with something smelling like the inside of a public lavatory or sewage plant. Simply not good enough ! As for the rest of the ship, our room was kept clean and tidy. Plus marks as usual to the stateroom staff. They deserve every penny they get Entertainment was average. Each headliner performed at least twice, some even more. The comedian was dire.it's not funny to make fun of where audience members come from and that constituted his whole act. They did host a few trivia sessions, no themes at all, Only general trivia with some wacky way out questions. It's no fun if the questions are too surreal . nd there are too many times when the answers they have were wrong. That's just embarassing Only one port had a tender and they managed to muck up the tender ticket allocation process. They gave out numbered tickets on a first come first served basis. Only they realised that they were giving out the wrong tickets and started to give out new ones after about an hour. Meant that those who queued early ( me included ) had invalid tickets, had to queue again and as such got delayed getting off . A total farce Food was disappointing. I've been on a few Princess ships and the difference in quality here was very noticeable. Small portions delivered cold in the MDR. Food also cold in the buffet. And what happened to the complimentary soft serve ice cream usually available on the pool deck ? Replaced with chargeable ice cream at $5 a scoop. That's just mean. I feel sorry for families with kids Ports were as expected. I'm still critical of cruise lines on!y giving out port information which gets them money I've written to Princess about the smell. Hopefully they will reply but I'm not holding my breath - unlike in board where I had to Read Less
