It's been a while since I've cruised on Princess and this was my 3rd Princess cruise (out of a total of 23 cruises).
I really like ships that have enclosed pools, as this gives cruisers shelter if it's really windy. This ship also had lots of pools, although the Lotus Pool was only open about 3 days of the whole 10 days.
I was very impressed that when I ordered an omelette at breakfast, I was given a slip of paper to hand to the table wait staff and they then brought me my omelette when it was ready - on other ships you have to wait while the chef cooks it for you - so this was lovely. The same went for ordering a cappuccino at breakfast. I gave my Coffee Card to the wait staff and they organised my coffee. These 2 items, were a great, relaxing start to my days.
Worst bed I've ever slept on :(
Thank goodness for my wonderful cabin steward, Romano, who organised 2 egg crate mattress toppers for my bed.
I always enjoy stopping at Port Vila. Good shopping and of course the cheapest Duty Free (possibly) in the South Pacific at Fung Kuei :D
Ok port. Handy having a supermarket near to the ship.
I embarked the ship in Sydney.
