The itinerary of this 28-day Cruise was the reason for taking this cruise. It was a great way to see Australia in a relaxing atmosphere. Having done many cruises with Princess, we looked forward to a great trip. The check-in process for embarkation was the quickest we have ever experienced. We got to the capitol cities in each of the Australian states in addition to several other cities/towns. Our biggest disappointment was the choices given on the dinner menus. In addition, we found much of the food bland &/or tasteless. On many evenings, we were hard pressed to find something that we wanted to eat. We have never been this disappointed on any other Princess ship. The entertainment was exceptional, although it was difficult to get into the theatre at certain times for certain shows. The shows (production numbers, singers, comedians, musicians, etc.) were all wonderful & most enjoyable. The production numbers on Princess ships (their own singers & dancers) are always very well done by very talented performers. The crew was accommodating & helpful. There were many passengers using walkers, canes, wheelchairs & skooters & a crew member seemed to be available to help, especially in the buffet. If it wasn’t for the menu choices & food in the dining room at dinner, this would have been the perfect cruise. It was a major disappointment. The itinerary was great & we enjoyed every port of call.

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OC C634
The cabin was larger than the balcony staterooms. We had two chairs, a large desk, more than ample storage, & a large window. The window was very dirty & was finally cleaned about halfway through the cruise. Other than a very dirty window, our cabin was very comfortable. Having a terrific cabin steward always is a plus & ours was wonderful.
