Sun Princess Cruise Review by P and T Barrett

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Went on this cruise for our 10th wedding anniversary expecting a luxury cruise liner and something a bit more special than other cruises we've been on. Very disappointed in the whole cruise from the old ship, brown decor, small balcony cabin and the inconvenience of just about everything in the cabin faulty or not working at all. Shore visits were disorganised which made time on shore shorter. Getting on tenders took an hour. Paid for shuttle (via ship) to go to markets in Vietnam only to find it was only a supermarket with no shopping for trinkets or gifts. Maintenance being done most days on ship limiting guests use of areas. Food was as expected on a cruise - good enough. Limited shaded areas outside - not enough for the amount of guests to escape the hot sun by the small pools. Not a cruise for children/teenagers as the average age would have been 70 years which made most entertainment a bit boring for the younger guest. However ocean was smooth as a lake and every day was sunny.

Cabin Review


Small cabin and balcony. Dated decor. Toilet, TV, extractor fan in bathroom and TV remote didn't work. Smoke alarm kept alerting staff when there was no fire which in turn kept making the telephone ring all hours of the day and night. Constant strong smell of urine in bathroom that was not addressed
