Disappointing

Review for Grand Princess to Australia & New Zealand

Chose this cruise because of the destination. Apart from the ship being very tired, the crew are not as accommodating as previous cruises, this was echoed by several other guests. The room attendant assigned to our cabin never turned up when asked for a pair of scissors, the rudeness of bar staff was jawdropping, and we had serviettes thrown on our lap by waiters. There were no shuttles upon our ...

We choose this cruise because it left Melbourne which suited us. we always loved Silversea‘s, and that was the Reason to cruise with them, sad to say this is the last cruise with them ,I can’t understand how people can give this cruise five stars. This has been the worst cruise we had with Silversea‘s ever. If you do the ships tour, it is beautiful. no doubt about it I have no trouble recommending ...

Embarkation in Melbourne was fantastic. We were allocated 1200-1230 boarding slot. Walked in to terminal at 1201 and was onboard within 15 minutes. Cabin was also ready when we boarded. Huge improvement from previous cruise. Bar service was sometimes a bit slow. Medallion app worked fairly well but hung a few times. Being able to find shipmates was a good feature. My Time Dining was easy ...

Travelled from New York to have an intensive New Zealand cruise and to experience what some would call the 8th wonder of the world in cruising Milford Sound. Instead azamarra decided to save money and not follow the New Zealand regulations which were issued on Oct 2022 -3 months before the sailing date- to get its ship hull properly inspected and cleaned. They knew in advance that their failure ...

Chose this small ship to escape the hordes on previous cruises The ship itself was a comfortable size but didn’t enjoy the rough seas Cabin was ok , plenty of storage but the smallest shower I’ve ever seen ! Main dining for dinner was very good and the included wines were of a good standard Lunches in the buffet were ok but not exceptional Breakfast buffet was average at best ...

An epic 3 years in the making, sadly the Grand is showing its 24 years of age and isnt in the same league as the newer ships. We sailed from Melbourne and down Port Phillip Bay on a balmy Melbourne evening, I have driven around it 100's of thime but this was the first time sailing the Bay, through the Heads at Queenscliffe and into Bass Straight. An uneventful transit to Cape Reinga which we ...

Ate lunch in the Britannia dining room and the Golden Lion, excellent. Afternoon tea in the Queen’s room was a frantic and chaotic affair attended once, after which we ate ...

Positives: Excellent crew in all parts of the ship. The entry system to the staterooms with your Medallion was also excellent with the door opening as you approached. Boarding and disembarkation were quick. Choice of films on the TV in the stateroom was very good. Port Chalmers, Wellington, Napier and Auckland were all to our liking. Having a park ranger, Ian, aboard to provide ...

We chose this cruise so we could combine it with a visit to see our son and grandchildren who live near Melbourne. New Zealand had long been on our bucket list, I had just turned 70 so it seemed an ideal time and location to celebrate and see family at the same time. We booked the cruise several months in advance but left it until early autumn before we started downloading information on to ...

We have taken many Princess cruises before and enjoyed all of them! We are now on the Grand Princess with a few more days till we return to Melbourne Medallion set up confusing . We got it partly set up and decided they could complete the process at the check in. It seems we had actually finished it Check in was chaotic! It was delayed due to needed extra Covid clean. Well meaning guides ...
