New Zealand cruise

WE chose this cruise as it went from our home port of Adelaide so was an easy decision to make. The ship is getting on and looked tired in places but the cabin and entertainment areas were decorated very nicely. ...

Good cruise despite the weather

Golden Princess is due for a refurbishment. Common areas aren’t bad but the cabins need work. The fun part about this ship’s configuration is that there are two separate areas for shows. Occasionally, we were ...

Dining, relaxing & entertainment.

We have travelled on 2 or 3 cruise lines, but with princess cruises more than any other cruise lines including p&o, their associate cruise line. Satisfaction & familiarity are a good description of our cruises. ...

Service was the highlight

I rated the cruise as Very Good, but it was between Average and Very Good. As with most cruises, there were good and bad experiences, and some that were OK, but could do with a re-think. We booked late in the year, ...
