Very Disappointing

Sea Princess Cruise Review by Stargatefan

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2016
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

I cannot fault the embarkation, it was quick and easy. Cannot fault the staff. Everyone was extremely pleasant. Cannot fault the cleanliness.....cabin and all amenities were spotless.

We had a balcony cabin, it was a tad small, but for 2 nights not a problem. The bed was brilliant, the best I have slept on during a cruise.

However, from the moment we boarded, there was a lack of everything, from food to entertainment. Everything was closed. Entertainment was zero. During the evening, the entertainment was suited to the over 70's. No offense to that age group, but it would be nice to mix it up a bit. We are 50 something's and found 1940's and 50'a music a bit boring after a while.

No night club for after dinner dancing. Can't imagine how the younglings on the cruise felt.

The food was very disappointing, portion control gone mad. We had a pizza for lunch, it was obviously a frozen pizza, similar to the Woollies frozen pizzas. Paying $19 for it hurt!

I feel this ship caters for the elderly age groups, which is reflected in the err...entertainment, so we will never again sail on this ship. We work full time, and enjoy our cruises, and are prepared to spend whilst on holiday. Bonus, I guess, we found nothing to spend money on, so we took our holiday savings home. All the more for our cruise on the Celebrity Solstice in September.

This ship not recommended for under 70's....

Cabin Review

Cabin BA A625

Cabin was a bit small, however it was well set out, decor good. The cabin was spotless as was the bathroom.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Port side has a few quaint boutiques and eateries. Transport to and from Port side is very good.

Sydney (Australia)

Docking here was rather different. Seemed to be a long way from anything.
