The plus side of the cruise was the itinerary, food, service and production shows. Although we have seen all production shows in the past. The entertainment in general was poor with the cruise director NOT connecting with the passengers. Some of the activities listed in the Princess Patter did not take place at the times specified. Supposedly they were announced over the PA but it was not heard or could understand by a lot of people. For mainly an American audience the acts brought on by the cruise director were mainly Australian. Not appreciated by many, even the Australians. The movie and trivia were good. Especially good was the cruise long trivia. The lecturers obviously not been vetted by Princess. Overall we had a good time since we made it a point to have one. But the cruise could have been better if the entertainment were better.

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IA B341
This room is just after the fire doors which are always left open, except in the event of a fire. The entrance door to the cabin is narrower then a standard entrance door. Room is not quiet when the pool is being filled. For these reasons I would not recommend this room.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Road to Hana
    Temptation Tours was magical. The picnic lunch in Hana was fantastic and thee Maui Pineapple I Could not get enough of. Linen table cloth and real silver on a beach in Hanna made our day. Our guide Al Jangl was the best. He pointed out numerous sites to us that we would never have picked up on own as well as give us a history of the area. Friends of ours rent ed a car and drove the road to Hana. They regretted it as they had no knowledge what to see and where to stop.

  • Te Papa Museum
    Te Papa’s contains a rich collection of Maroi Exhibits. No performances here like in Auckland. There is a room that stimulates an earthquake. Should a real one occur do not worry as the museum is the safest building as it sits on rubber blocks. A guided tour of the museum comes with the booking as well.
