"Whenever a tender was needed to ferry us to shore, this was done as expediately & as safely as possible given some weather conditions were not good at times, e.We plan to sail with them for many years to come, hope to do another cruise within the next 12 months & have already started to plan our 2022 cruise with princess cruises for a double celebration...."Read More

Excellent trip all went well emergency entertainer added in Fremantle was a nice surprise. All fill in Acts were very good as were the large showtime shows in the Theatre. The waiters in the Marquis Restaurant & Horiizon Court buffet were attentive, helpful & friendly. The cabin staff also very good, kept the cabin very clean and stocked with fresh towels. The cabin had plenty of coat ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

It was my first cruise and what an amazing experience I had. The crew really makes an effort to keep you happy, there are lots of entertainment on board, some are excellent like the shows and invited guests, and others a little repetitive and tedious like musicians playing and singing every night the same songs, old songs. I have to mention the cruise director Jody, she is an extraordinary ...

We have travelled on 2 or 3 cruise lines, but with princess cruises more than any other cruise lines including p&o, their associate cruise line. Satisfaction & familiarity are a good description of our cruises. All in this group offer this but l believe we have become used to what princess offers in regard to entertainment (night shows), meals, room service, loyalty programmes ...

We travelled with a group of 8 friends. We have travelled on the Sun Princess twice before. We were led to believe the ship had been refurbished recently, but I would guess only certain areas have been refurbished as many parts of the ship were looking tired and carpets were tatty in places. Our stateroom was very tired looking. The embarkation in Fremantle was speedy and efficient. We boarded ...

We were looking for a short cruise to introduce our family to cruising and Celebrate Birthday and Anniversary Milestones and had been on the Sun Princess before so we chose this cruise. We had 5 Mini Suites which was amazing and when 3 of the Balcony's were connected it provided the family to interact. The service on board was top class and the food was excellent. Albany was spectacular with our ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Having sailed princess before I was disappointed to find their standard was obviously not the same as last time I had issues with my stateroom which although fixed promptly should not have arisen in the first place. Entertainment was good, service especially in horizon left something to be desired tables not cleared or cleaned which I did myself. Bar understaffed especially at busy times, I asked ...

This was the only cruise taking in Christmas and New Year. Sailing from Freemantle with about 2,000 passengers, a group of all ages The ship now some 24 years old but eh atmosphere was so good on board. Entertainment was suitable for all ages, with a fantastic Caribbean band as the main source of music. They got the crowd going with dancing like you would never believe, coupled with a ...

Should have stopped to think about it really and would have realised that any Australian home port and back to home port cruise would attract, perhaps, passenger demographics that were old and infirm by the thousand, because they cannot, or will not, take a long haul flight to go cruising. This was borne out by an incredible array of mobility scooters, wheelie frames, walking sticks and broken and ...

We chose this cruise as it was from and to Fremantle, and it took in Christmas and New Year. (For us, a repeat of 3 years ago, then to NZ). These celebrations were mostly non-existent and only available to a few in the Atrium. The Ship is clearly showing its' age in many departments, especially our cabin. The 'serving' staff were tremendous, but the Officers were perhaps too busy running the ...
