Sea Princess Cruise Review by PeggySnowflake

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise. It was part of the Brisbane 4MBS classical music tour to New Zealand. From classical music concerts each day, to splendid evening dinners in Rigolettos and to our cabin comforts - it was an awesome cruise and something we're not going to forget in a hurry.

There are some stand outs of our cruise. Mostly around the people who made it so enjoyable, from the people who served our tables and ensured our meals were to our dietary requirements, to the wonderful smile that we were greeted with each morning as we left our cabin and again when we returned.

Our hearty thanks go to those special people - Darwin our cabin steward, and Rigolettos' head waiter Jun, table service Agnelo, Romel and Ranko. Wonderful people who made our journey memorable.

The decor throughout was especially pleasing, the staircase in the atrium and the glass lifts all go to make it a very special cruise.

The food of course was spectacular. The chef excelled himself with something different every night. I just loved the dairy free desserts that were made!! Thank you so much for taking the time out.

The afternoon and early evening classical music in the atrium was wonderful to listen to and relax by.

There is so much that was great about this trip. Thank you to the Captain and all the crew of the Sea Princess.

I have only one slight downer - it would be great if it was a smoke free ship. Walking out into a wall of smoke was not the best, especially when the wind was blowing in and it wafted into the photography area and the vista lounge.

Comfortable, clean, great decor. Loved the balcony. Cabin steward was awesome.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Absolutely wonderful. We fulfilled one of our bucket list and that was to see and to photograph albatross. Which we did!! To add to the excitement we also saw giant petrel, Otago shags and many other birds.

We boarded here. The boarding process was well run and a great process.


We explore the beautiful sea port of Akaroa. Quaint houses and esplanade. Lunched in the main street. Wonderful


Cable car ride to top of mountain. Rained, so we returned.


Lovely day spent walking through Mount Maunganui main street and then around the mountain, Beautiful.


Walked the streets of the city and did the Sky Tower. Wonderful.
