4 day cruise to Albany and back was fantastic on the Sun Princess. Went with a group of about 90 for a family 50th. I spend 6 months of year flying around the world staying in hotels etc for business so see a lot of hospitality. This was our first cruise and found it above average for staff friendliness, efficiency of embarkation and debarkation at Fremantle, and the quality of food / drinks and service. Plus a reasonable price. Balcony cabin was fine - maybe bathroom a bit small and low water pressure. Seated dining and buffet both had plenty of choices and quality of food good. Plenty of entertainment if you wanted it ( we only saw the comedian who was OK and didn't take any shore excursions) , otherwise a relaxing drink or two or three could be had at any of the numerous bars. Will definitely do another cruise. Although mid fifties this dispelled my notion that cruise are for old people !

First trip and coming back for more.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BD S626
Balcony cabin was plenty as most time spent out of it. Shower/bathroom could be a bit bigger and water pressure a bit stronger but you can survive. Believe it is having a refit which will just lift it another notch.
