Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2023
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

Embarkation in Melbourne was fantastic. We were allocated 1200-1230 boarding slot. Walked in to terminal at 1201 and was onboard within 15 minutes. Cabin was also ready when we boarded. Huge improvement from previous cruise.

Bar service was sometimes a bit slow.

Medallion app worked fairly well but hung a few times. Being able to find shipmates was a good feature.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin was kept spotless. Bed was excellent. Slight creak from cupboard area sometimes.

Port Reviews


Princess supplied a return bus shuttle into Duneden for about $35 Australian. Well worth it.

Many passengers used the local bus but had to wait a very long time between buses.

We actually stayed in Port Chalmers as we had been to Dunedin before. easy walk from Terminal to town.


Cruise line provides free shuttle to downtown Wellington near the Cable Car and another stop near the Museum.

A walk along the waterfront is good.
