We sailed from Fremantle on 3rd Sept, after her re-fit , in a suite. We could not open the balcony door as it was so stiff, had to call for assistance. The balcony was " grubby " floor matting paint splattered and marked ( needed replacing )walls dirty and exposed pipes lagged with cloth ? rust in evidence - think the " re-fit " had missed this one.

The so called " Speciality Restaurant " ( the only one )was merely a screened off area of the cafeteria, allowing anyone to walk through, our food had to be sent back as it was lukewarm - for this, one paid $20 per person extra plus another $10 if you wanted crayfish. The Horizon Court buffet was canteen style with plastic plates, plastic cups and wooden stirring sticks.

The pool area is dominated by the large cinema screen blaring away all day - if you want a quiet relax you can go to " The Sanctuary " area and pool - at an extra cost of $30 per person per day and the " pool " is a small paddling pool with about 6 inches of water ! The so called " Vista Lounge " is not actually a " lounge " it's a theatre. We agree with "QueenK2's" regarding the shows and the Duo singer was deaf - not possible to have a quiet conversation and drink in the bar. The Terrace Grill ( sounds good ? )served Mrs Mac's pies

The pre dinner dance floor on deck 7 was not used as there was no piano or music.

There is more , but that's enough, times have changed, sorry Princess but value for what we paid - no.

Sun Princess, where indeed !

Cabin Review

Cabin B748

Our so called " Owners " suite was good but the balcony was grubby and poorly maintained - not value for the large amount we paid.
There is no quiet lounge.
Bar good but " music " far too loud.
