  3. Sea Princess
Having cruised twice before and frequented the nightlife this cruise was to experience the offerings of the ship Sea Princess and we were not disappointed! Professional, disciplined management led to an amazing experience of locations and its people in Papua New Guinea and the Conflict Islands.Highlights were endless, but particularly enjoyed visiting a school and hospital in Alotau, war memorials in Rabaul, a turtle hatchery and snorkelling from a pontoon on Panasesa Island, staying till the last tender, late night shows, dancing in the Legends Bar and on the outdoor deck disco, sauna swim, afternoon cocktails at sunset and early morning laps in the deck pool! Food was amazing as was the Steakhouse experience! Staff hospitality was second to none and individual service was outstanding! Unique to this cruise was the delivery of lectures on Australia's war history in the Pacific and the dynamics of modern piracy! Lectures were always at full capacity! An emotional conclusion from Mr Peter Sweeney a former Lt Col. with the Australian Reservists acknowledging the overwhelming interest of the passengers, was insightful to the sacrifices of all service people, globally! Time was limited (11 days) but would have enjoyed talks from the maritime staff and the audience...there were many stories! Aboveall, a memorable experience of the fascinating indigenous people of the Pacific to our north made possible only by the seamless hospitality of the majestic Sea Princess and its staff!

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OC
Sanitised, regularly serviced cabin,with fittings to accomodate all passengers. Hot showers, comfortable sleeping, great views and a chocolate each night! Our house steward was always mindful of any needs...mine was remembering the cabin number?
