Background: This review is my first one on Cruise Critic and rather long (sorry), however I have tried to structure it for you so that you can skip to the specific paragraphs e.g ports, ship, dining e.t.c. In the past four years cruise critic has given us so much (new friends, valuable info e.t.c) that payback is long overdue, so here we go. This was our eleventh cruise, and tenth with Princess. ...

Please enter your review. I have to agree with the review by Victor Meldrew. I am Canadian and travelled on this same cruise with my husband. We stayed precruise(booked through Princess) in Bangkok at the ShangriLa, where we have previously stayed. Our stay was marred by the horrific flight we had courtesy of Princess with a 7 hour layover in Hong Kong having flown approx. 18 hours from Toronto ...

The trip from Auckland, New Zealand to Sydney Australia was the first time we had been on a cruise ship. When I first saw the outside of the "Sapphire Princess" at the dock in Auckland I thought "oh oh..... this is not going to be my cup of tea".... too big... huge... but once we were on board I thought it was a floating palace.... beautiful... We had booked an inside twin cabin... found it to be ...

Sapphire Princess Cruise 6th - 18th January 2005 Review We have arrived home from our wonderful cruise. Yes ...  the Sapphire Princess cruise ship is a magnificent venue for the holiday or a lifetime. First of all price ... We paid for an inside cabin. When we got on board we found out we had been upgraded to a window cabin .... can you imagine how delighted we were! After checking our prices ...

I was a virgin of the sea prior to this wonderful trip my wife Judy and I took to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We flew London - LA - Auckland with no problem until a wee sniffer dog at Auckland airport caught the scent of a dried thistle in my wife's handbag! A small fine and an acceptance of our adversity was a minor hic-up. I must recommend Quantas Airlines for their service. We ...

My husband (age 50) and I (age 44) have previously cruised three times on Holland America and twice on Disney. We've also done a few one-time cruises on a number of other lines. We decided to try Princess because it offered an Australia-New Zealand itinerary with dates that would work for us. We honestly didn't have high expectations for Princess and expected it to be a notch below HAL. We were ...

I normally do not get involved in writing such reviews, but felt this applicable because of some pre-cruising negative reviews for this itinerary and ship. We flew to Auckland on ANZ which was (in spite of the length) a very nice trip. We landed in Auckland and we all were immediately met by the Princess Rep. and whisked off to our hotels. We stayed at the Langham which was absolutely wonderful in ...
