Well we are used to other Shipping companies, so this was a first for me on Princess line, and I must say very impressed.

Although a lot smaller ship than we are used to, 115,000 tons compared to 140,000 tons we found it still quite a large ship.

A bit hard to get around at first, until you find the right deck to get from one end to the other and more up and downs to achieve the same result.

Cabin Review

Interior

Great service with an attentive cabin boy.

Port Reviews

Sydney (Australia)

Great port to sail out of.

Dunedin

Unfortunately a cold day here

Akaroa

Excellent place the town opened up for us, but once again caught bad weather which spoiled part of it.

Picton

Hats off to Picton, they had hosts who welcomed everyone and local markets showing their wares.PR wise Picton topped them all for friendliness. Plus the weather was excellent.

Tauranga

everything close to the ship, good shopping, and nice sights to see.
