A slight variation to the usual reviews, if we may. The following submission is almost a complete copy of that submitted to Princess Cruises following our return on 'Sun Princess' Singapore-Fremantle.

Cruise was enjoyable, but ships currently servicing Australian ports really need replacing! They are far to old now - those dry dock cosmetic makeovers/refits cannot hide the massive internal problems besetting these ships. Continual problems with plumbing, air-conditioning, elevators, water leaks, in-cabin refrigerators, laundry facilities, etc were reported by fellow guests throughout our cruise! To put it simply, Australians will not tolerate being fed rubbish whilst the majestic modern vessels ply seas of other 'higher profile' countries!!! If not addressed, Senior Management, patronage will drop off if Australians are not offered modern ships. Watch out for escalating competition on Australian cruises or (with respect) face the consequences!

Disappointed Kuala Lumpur was a 'missed port'. Felt for those who had not been there before - we had been. Guests not satisfied with explanation given 'generator problems impacting upon the ship's speed'. Many theories emerged, among them suggestions we had not been given the truth. The ship appeared to propel with no problems throughout!

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MA

Beautiful Mini-suite suited us so very well. Comfortable - really enjoyed the new 'dream beds', pillow menu & Princess bed linen. We always choose this stateroom type (OK, they cost more, but well worth every cent). Having the separate bedroom and lounge areas (with a dividing curtain) with their own TV's are so welcome - each of us can do our own thing! Add a GREAT steward to that mix, and we were 'happy Jan'!
