We were really looking forward to a most enjoyable holiday with friends. Broome and Darwin were fine as we organised our own Maxi Taxi and had a great tour with our own driver. Our so called 'Stateroom' with balcony was tiny, hardly room to move but the cabin service was excellent. The meals in the Dining Room were only average but again the service was great. We were supposed to call into Port Douglas, but for some reason, not conveyed to us, it didn't stop there. Instead all excursions for Cairns and Port Douglas were organised out of Cairns. The departure for these excursions was absolute chaos, there was little communication and poor organisation leaving many passengers angry, annoyed and upset. The Sun Princess is showing its age with power outages and loss of TV over a number of days. We also experience stinking sewage small wafting through the cabin and walkways. Only one washing machine was working on our deck. One of our party had water leakage come through his wardrode soaking his clothes. The balcony railing was rusted and painted over many times. The Sun princess is showing its age and is due for a major refit or scrapping. It seems to me that Princess Cruises operating out of Fremantle are sub standard. All the good cruise ships, with some exceptions, operate in the northern hemisphere. Harvey J
