We did a six night Sydney to Adelaide cruise, via Hobart and Melbourne. The ship is beautiful and still fairly new so everything was lovely.
Our cabin E707 mini suite was a good size with bath. Two flat screen TVs, balcony was adequate but not large, just standard size and was umcovered. Our friends were also in a mini suite M428 on deck 15 and they had a large covered balcony so do your research. We both received free upgrades from standard balcony to mini suite so we were very happy.
As we travelled with friends we did not attend any of the production shows. We did use the MDR mostly, with good service and nice food. We used Crown Grill, which was delicious and heaps of food $35 per head. Service was good although the waiter had several tables so he was really running between tables. We also ate at the French La Mer which was also delicious and $35 a head. One lunch we had burgers and noodles from near the pool area. Noodles were good but burger was just ok. We had dessert once in the buffet, we didn't eat any proper meals here. It was very crowded with queues waiting to go in whenever we went there so we avoided the buffet. The ship has sinks outside the buffet so people have to wash their hands, which is excellent.
I really like how Princess is in Australian dollars when cruising from here, very easy for us. The laundries are on most floors and they are excellent with several machines. I only used the iron, but the space was clean and there was no waiting.
The champagne waterfall was a fun night, formal night. Lots of people dressed up, lots of tuxedos. It was beautiful.
We did our own thing in the ports, hired a car in Hobart and caught the 109 bus into Melbourne and went to the Victoria Markets.
Beautiful cabin, large bed, two TVs, fridge. Full bath with shower over. Balcony is standard size and uncovered.
We had a good night sleep every night. We didn't hear any noise from adjoining cabins.
Service at OPT was excellent. We arrived approximately 3.20pm and walked straight on.
