Disappointing first cruise with Princess

Sun Princess Cruise Review by izzywalker

  • Destination: Asia

We chose this cruise for the itinerary.

Very disappointed all round with this cruise.

I suppose it’s the sign of the times where a lot of cost cutting is happening.

-Staffing levels were inadequate. Staff were trying their best to provide a good service but there just were not enough staff.

Cabins - very good. Steward very good.

Food - ok but lacked variety. Service very poor and the lighting was very poor every night.

Entrainment - poor. A lot of the entertainment was passenger participation eg games like the yes/ no game etc.

After 9,30pm the ship was very quiet. Not many people in the bars - was this because the drinks were very expensive I wonder.

Disembarkation at ports was poorly organised - queues and more queues.

Ports of call were good but had several tenders: Bali and na Trang which meant you only had a short time ashore - this we knew at time of booking.

Overall disappointing as we were told by friends that Princess cruises were very good. Whilst on the cruise we met a lot of cruisers who said they travelled with Princess all the time and that standards had gone down a lot.

Would not recommend.
