Sail Date: Nov 2008
Cabin:

We booked this cruise from BKK to SYD with Princess Cruises Australia. We are 2 adults and no children. The ease of the booking was very good.

Three weeks prior to sailing we requested by fax, a Bon Voyage gift to ourselves as per the Princess website & cruise guide,. (champagne and canapEs A$100.00 credit card details in fax as gift had to be paid before sailing)One week prior, we telephoned and emailed Princess Cruises Australia to be told that this would be taken care of by the ship.

Embarking in Laem Chebang Thailand was well organized and quick. There were lots of crew available to welcome us aboard, including crew stationed at the lifts to assist in finding our cabin. We were also given a pocket sized map of the ship which proved very handy given the size of the ship.

Cabin Review

Overall the cabin was good, quiet, no noise from the hallway. Did experience diesel fumes at times on the balcony being midship starboard side. In wet weather the balcony held lots of water. Ample storage for the size of the cabin.
