  3. Dawn Princess
We have cruised on the Dawn before and had a great experience. Not so this time. She's an old ship and we expect some issues so put up with foul smells of wet rotting carpet and air conditioning that didn't work properly, but this was Dawn Princess final cruise to Singapore before going over to P & O. We did NOT expect to run out of many non perishable goods or have the shops shutdown halfway thru the cruise!! (so goods could be packed up). 5 days from the end they ran out of Johnny Walker red Whiskey, plus other whiskeys. Gin ran out along with Sav Blanc and Chardony and.. get this Breakfast teas of all brands ran out!! This is unexcusable! We have written to Princess and not had the courtesy of a reply. This cruise was not advertised as a cheap one off or final sailing so we expected it to be like other cruises who Never runout of Tea or Wine! This has left a bitter taste that Princess could treat it's loyal followers so badly
