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, ...

We have done this cruise a number of times and we love it however, in January 2019 we noticed a sharp decline in the food on the ship in comparison to prior years, we cruised on the same ship again in December 2019 ...

Good itinerary but dated ship

This was a 13 day New Zealand cruise with Brisbane to Brisbane port. Of the 13 days, six were at sea so there wasn’t a lot of time allocated for shore excursions. Ship capacity was about 2,000 and it was pretty ...

The Master made it.

The Sea Princess is typically of the older liners companies inflict on Australia. It’s had a refurbishment and is very comfortable except for the lifts. Always overcrowded at meal time and post shows. ...
