After many cruises (30), we decided we wanted to go all around Australia and see that beuatiful country as much as possible. The Sea Princess itinerary was excellent and we had wonderful weather, the choice of the port was well planned. The ship is not new but well maintained and the staff is just exceptional. they aim to please while always smiling. The captain, Christopher Lye made that cruise very interesting , he educates us with every broadcast, I wish he had given a lecture. The cruise director, Lyn Van Vorce, and her staff were on top of everything and very friendly, the entertainers were the best except for the production show who had only 2 average singers except for Encore when a wonderful soprano, Caiss Dillon was added. We are bridge players and the venue to play was not adequate and close to other loud activities: The Sea Princess lacks space ! The theater is small, you have to get there 30 minutes before the show !!! Music in the ship was very mostly good and offered a lot of variety. The food was a disappointment : the buffet was good and always full because the dining room selection were just ok. We had been on the Caribbean Princess 2 years ago, much better. The dinners were bland, the beef was a cheap cut but the desserts and the service were topnotch. The officers should be more visible and should contribute to the enrichment series , I am sure they have a lot to say !!!
A bit small but a lot of storage space, bathroom soap and shampoo below standard. The toilets did not work on 4 occasions on half of the floor ( 4 hours), this is not acceptable !
