Sun Princess Cruise Review by taipuha

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

Not sure in hindsight why we chose this cruise.

Excursions badly organised and exorbitant costs. Perhaps it was priced to avoid people wanting to do them

Embaking and disembarkation was diorganised chaos.

Change in itinerary and Princess not being honest about the reason why

Ship needs to be melted down and rebuilt, definitely due for the scrapyard. Lifts not working, toilets not flushing, drink dispensers not working.

Took 4 hours to get off the ship in Broome because of delays and maintenance being done at the so called wharf. Hardly worth getting off, as it was time to come back, once we got into Broome

Not enough activities organised onboard for the days at Sea.

Our cabin was standard, but the aircon unit was like having a jetplane taking off 24/7.

Mentioned it to maintenance, but nothing could be done about it.

Will never cruise with Princess again, in fact this cruise may even put me off cruising for Life.

Nightmare, waited 4 hours to get off the ship

Cairns

Pity, but this was the port that was taken off our itinerary.

Geraldton

Tendered into port. Friendly locals made it worthwhile
