Sun Princess Cruise Review by Pamf

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Interior

We chose this cruise to see another country and to enjoy the warm weather.

It was an interesting experience but I would not choose to go there again as the poverty and living conditions of the people is quite heartbreaking. The beaches were beautiful and we did a lot of snorkelling both in Papua and in Vanuatu. We had a really poor excursion from the ship which was supposed to be a fantastic snorkelling beach near Luganville and it went to another location which did not have any fish or coral and was a dump. We were offered a 25% refund which we thought was very insulting!

The food on board the ship was excellent and the entertainment was second to none. Congratulations to the cruise director in his endeavours. The artists were varied and very good and the resident group called the Rapsody trio who played in the atrium every evening were also very good. All in all it was a very relaxing cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin IE Aloha917

Fantastic steward. We were where we chose to be near the quiet small back deck

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


A small port which was ok but nothing special


Did a private excursion there was lots to see and do but loved the hot springs and the proximity to the volcano


A lovely shuttle to town and then walked to the Botanic gardens and spent time in Southbank
