This Cruise was to experience Fiji & its different areas without me actually flying there, staying for a week or two & realising I was not enjoying the destination chosen. Eg Suva I would not visit again, Dravini Island was absolutely lovely, Nadi had nice hot weather, Savusavu & Loutouka also lovely ports to enjoy with awesome weather & places to visit. Vanuatu is always a favourite. Lovely people. The Princess Cruise line was very enjoyable. The bed & pillow were total comfort. Food, food, food. If anyone complains about the food, maybe their standards & expectations are rather high, although this is only my 2nd cruise. Such a variety & abundance of food, available 24/7. Staff onboard are all lovely. Passenger/staff ratio is very good. 3000 passengers v 1000 staff. Age group of cruise....Not many children at all. Majority of ages I would guess 55-85. The older age group were able bodied, meaning very few walkers or wheelchairs. Mostly couples travelling. Would highly recommend this cruise. The month of travel was extremely appropriate too. Not stifling hot & no storms or rain (except Suva but it rains everyday anyway).

Enjoyed the Fiji ports

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IF
They need to get the prices of cabins sorted with regard to location, noise etc. instead of charging large prices for inferior cabins (in comparison to the other cabins). My mistake for not understanding cabin standard etc. Although its a shame the agency I booked through weren't forthcoming with the information. Next time I will either book direct or go through a travel agent.
