Chose this cruise as the timing was right for our time off work and had heard princess was a great cruise line. We have been on Celebrity and Carnival previous and my wife and I are in our late 30’s.
First impressions was this ship is huge.. and it is.. But at the same time it never really felt too full even though there was 4100 passengers. The only exceptions were the theatre and buffet at peak times.
Had all we needed and was big enough for 2 - didn’t spend a lot of time in there.
Know Auckland well.
Can spend a number of hours walking around - plenty to see
Nice spot. Nice beach and nice town centre.
There on a Saturday so market was all go.
Museum has some cool exhibits. Botanical gardens average. Lime scooters fun. Flat CBD so easy to walk.
Been there before. Smog from fires was really bad and stings eyes :(
