Excellent trip all went well emergency entertainer added in Fremantle was a nice surprise. All fill in Acts were very good as were the large showtime shows in the Theatre. The waiters in the Marquis Restaurant & Horiizon Court buffet were attentive, helpful & friendly. The cabin staff also very good, kept the cabin very clean and stocked with fresh towels. The cabin had plenty of coat ...

It was my first cruise and what an amazing experience I had. The crew really makes an effort to keep you happy, there are lots of entertainment on board, some are excellent like the shows and invited guests, and others a little repetitive and tedious like musicians playing and singing every night the same songs, old songs. I have to mention the cruise director Jody, she is an extraordinary ...

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. All in this group offer this but l believe we have become used to what princess offers in regard to entertainment (night shows), meals, room service, loyalty programmes ...

We were looking for a short cruise to introduce our family to cruising and Celebrate Birthday and Anniversary Milestones and had been on the Sun Princess before so we chose this cruise. We had 5 Mini Suites which was amazing and when 3 of the Balcony's were connected it provided the family to interact. The service on board was top class and the food was excellent. Albany was spectacular with our ...

We travelled with a group of 8 friends. We have travelled on the Sun Princess twice before. We were led to believe the ship had been refurbished recently, but I would guess only certain areas have been refurbished as many parts of the ship were looking tired and carpets were tatty in places. Our stateroom was very tired looking. The embarkation in Fremantle was speedy and efficient. We boarded ...

Picked this cruise cause it was a round trip, Freo to Freo. The crew was amazing, go out of their way to help. Dining was excellent and the buffet? can't complain. Always something to do or just relax at various spots on the ship. The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic. The cabaret were awesome and the standard of international entertainment was outstanding. The shore excursions for us here ...

Age 30s

If you're under 60 years old or with a family, don't bother. Overpriced drinks, no worthy entertainment, gross cold tasteless food. I have never seen so many people in the age range of 70-80 years old with walkers in one place. That's fine, but if this is the age group they cater for, this needs to be obvious to those booking!!! Kids don't stand at chance at having an enjoyable time ...

This cruise was totally enjoyable for us. I have just read a review that to me was highly exagerated by a disgruntled passenger. There had been a "small" (5 or 6)out break of Gastro on the ship before we boarded at Singapore . for the 14 night cruise to Fremantle. We were advised almost immediately of the problem and precautions we should take. Were given regular updates on the ...
