We choose this cruise because it was a new ship and the Destination was Australia. The all over experince was good with most services up to expectation and some exceeding expectation. However there was an unacceptable amount of short coming in PR. Firstly the embarkation in Shanghai was a disaster. 12.30 was the embarkation time and that appeared to be for every one. There was no stagerred times. Therefore all embarkation passengers were herded into the lines extending into the carpark with no shade and it appears there was only one door open into the embarkation hall. With temperatures of over 30 degrees and humidity of around 90%. from my view the average age of people were over 60. The whole experience took us 3 hours to get on board, some we heard took up to 4 hours, About 45 minutes to an hour were in the sun. Thre were no announcementss, no consideration of occupational Health and safety, People lining up in the carpark with Busses, Cars etc dropping off passengers. There were no consideration for DISABLED passengers for embarkation, they had to line ip with everybody else. There was no consideration for heat distressed people in this area If there was a reason for this then nobody bothered to advise your customers , THE PASSENGERS. Read Less

Repositioning cruise so great value on a deluxe balcony Friendly helpful staff and crew Great food choice menu in 5.30 fixed seat dining.Well presented, good standard food with good service from friendly waiters 3 million dollar show Fantastic Journey with drones and new affects in an original Broadway type show .Shows so popular you have to get in early to get a seat Extra large balcony to stretch out full length and still room Settee in room to relax when using the cabin As brand new ship the standard of furniture and decor great Embarkation a disaster .We had no trouble getting off the ship in Shanghai so knew where the quickest entry point but were stopped by police even though we tried to go out and try again. The Hong Kong Tram excursion meal the worst in all previous Princess Excursions even though it cost well over $200 Excursions in other ports were good, especially Saigon at the Rex Hotel Read Less

Wanted to see some of Asia and this one was shown to us.Enjoyed it very much. Embarkation was a nightmare though , something has to be done about it if a ship leaves Shanghai, no thanks to the Chinese government, we think. Dining room food leaves a lot to be desired, was disappointing. It was the first time we chose to miss dinner there, at least 5 nights. Overall loved the ship, crew, entertainment and excursions. Pool areas are great, plenty of deck chairs to relax in , even at night where you are supplied with blankets to watch the footy or movies under the stars. Indoor pool area and adjoining areas are great to relax in. Food market eatery had a huge variety and the Bakery was very popular especially with the age group that was onboard. Unfortunately this ship does not cater for children, it will have to add a lot of interests like Royal Carribean have , to get families onboard. But we , as a retired couple enjoyed it very much.
