  3. Sun Princess
We have cruised with Princess 10 times and wanted a getaway with no flights. Which is very rare in Perth as the Cruise Lines are ignoring Perth especially for Fremantle return cruises and North instead of cold rough South cruises now almost never happen. Princess think Aussies love cruising now at any cost and are continually increasing cruise prices drink prices and decreasing service just to see how far they can go I think. Drinks in a year have almost doubled shots of Drambuie for instance last year $7.95 this year $13.75 for 45ml. Stopped all Happy Hours so the Wheelhouse bar is now like a morgue and used to be the party place. Most passengers in bed by 10pm now as to expensive now to party an enjoy. Closed the fantastic free pizzeria to put another rubbish over priced almost unused restaurant. No Kettle in the rooms is ridiculous they prefer us to call room service continually for boiling water and have staff walking the corridors with that thinking its safer. Surely two adults in a cabin can have a kettle even if we signed a waiver. Cabins are tired an outdated, bed was very good though. Guest entertainers were very good but the same old Princess shows every time we are with Princess gets boring. Need much better music by the pools with Aussie themes not Jamaican, and use the big screen for up to date music videos to get a great pool atmosphere not old movies blaring out while passengers trying to enjoy relaxing and the pool area. Almost no pool area drinks service you have to queue at the over used pool bar with everyone sitting in front of it so almost impossible to get served. Princess need to listen to their passengers especially in Perth an base a newer larger ship here and do more Fremantle return cruises and go North not South, bring back Happy Hours, Pizza and fun!

Princess seeing how much they can increase prices and reduce costs.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB R333
Old and Tired. No interactive TV still, no kettle. Bed nice, great location on the ship, very quiet room inside and out, with no usual creaks and noises even when rough.
