We chose this as the port of embarkation and timing met our needs otherwise would go Oceania. THE GOOD: The entertainment was great for our age group. Lots of soul, R & B, and rock 60’s and 70’s. Shows, though, are not Broadway – like, elaborate productions as found on many other cruise lines, but were still quite good and entertaining. Ozzie’s really know how to party and the crew dancers work extra hard joining in. On this cruise the house band horns joined in on deck with the regular dance band and were present at other parties. Never saw this before on other cruises. Great fun. Exercise room adequate: machines, dumbbells, two weight benches. Dining service and stateroom service were fine. Fruit and vegetables were fresh and readily available, as was coffee, tea and ice water. Vegetarian offerings were good. Though I do eat meat, I stuck with mostly the vegetarian dishes as they were quite good. Enforced washing of hands with soap and water breakfast and lunch. Six taps available so never a line. Free tokens(for some) self-serve laundromat and ironing. Other wise about $9 a wash and dry. Boarding was quick and painless. Bags arrived promptly. The bed and pillows were the best that we had ever slept with in 40 years of cruising. Air conditioning in cabin and throughout the ship worked well and was comfortable. Much needed in the heat and humidity of Fiji. Tendering was efficient. Long lines coming back except later in the day. Stifling hot, no air in the tender the first time. Getting on and off the boat was efficient. THE BAD: Meals were edible. Lamb chops and stews were good. Otherwise nothing gourmet, many were not prepared correctly: Cesar Salad was not REAL Cesar Salad, Cioppino was not REAL Cioppino. Roast beef was edible but no flavour. Fish was O.K. as were some deserts. Bacon, sausages etc were cold, chewy unappetizing. Eggs were O.K. Fruit, cereals were available. Dinner buffet was uninspiring, no international offerings, a total disaster. Only a few decent French wines available, some at a decent price. For some reason the soups and sauces were a gelatinous, glutinous mess, thick and goupy. Of course the way to make them would be by a reduction. The cheese plate consisted of what appeared and tasted as a commercial “Kraft” variety. No Creme Caramel most nights (disastrous omission as that is my favorite!) No outdoor barbecue, no outdoor poolside band / dancing. Huge television in mid ship section where outdoor pool was. Extremely noisy movies etc so much so that we had to find the only quiet place mid aft mid deck. BRING NOISE CANCELING HEAD PHONES!!! Forward there is a quiet space but they charge $20 / half day. Islands were interesting but do not take the ship’s overpriced offerings. Go on the Island and check out what there is. Be adventurous! Drink package at over $80 a day outrageous as are wine and beer prices. Beware of prices on land also. $7 for 250 ml beer! Again outrageous rip off. Just be prepared to pay the price if you drink. No flutes of champagne were handed out on New Year’s Eve as on every other line we have been on! The ship “nickel and dime” you to death. Next they will probably charge you for poolside towels. THE UGLY: First sight of ship…...”I’m going on this rust bucket?”. Rust dripping from port holes, anchor chain, water line, balconies, balcony table. Hey USE SOME PAINT, WHITE PAINT!! Problem: Worn, threadbare carpets in trafficked areas. Simple Solution: Replace them!! Paid extra for a balcony. Cramped sardine can opening. Rusting throughout including tiny table. Crippling chairs, no room to swing a cat (about all that you would want to do there.) Eat al fresco? Lose your appetite quickly. Romantic dinner? No romance here, just brown stains. We were with Princess before so we knew what to expect but this is the only cruise that fit our port and time frame. Also Loyalty Islands were something new for us. For others with greater expectations, STAY FAR AWAY! This is not what luxury priced cruising should be, and it is luxury priced. No bargain here! No pretensions but still a lot of fun, not stuffy but required two “formal nights”. Many did dress in tuxedos but many did not. Australians and New Zealanders are exempt from tipping, everyone else has to tip (added automatically to your credit card). COMPLAIN and get this credited back, otherwise you are stuck with a $250 charge. This is a discriminatory and unfair practice. Either everyone tips or no one tips as a requirement. Maybe a class action suit will wake them up! Read Less

Wanted to have a Christmas and New Year at sea, Princess did every thing to make the season of the year very good, Service and friendly crew made the trip very good. Destinations were very good. Excursions bought on board were a little expensive bur very good except for the Chu Chu train excursion in Noumea audio did not work proberly and you felt they wanted to get the trip over and done with. Policing of dress code and Children on board of children not done efficiently by crew as was the taking over of spas by children, also not showering before entering pools.The Movies under the stars children a problem again parents not controlling them, had to tell children to sit down and be quiet as could not hear movie finally gave up and watch movie in cabin, food at buffet was not hot and crew hard to find for service. Also had trouble trying to get a table, gave up in end and ate in dining room Read Less

Sea Princess has only changed a little over the years and she still impresses. First time inside cabin was excellent for napping and sleeping, but I'd still prefer a source of daylight. Cabin was neat n tidy every time upon returning. Cabin Staff exceptional hardly ever seen but always available. Marquee Dinning was excellent, the service and food, Five Star. The lunch time Grill was a sensation, fantastic concept and an essential. Cafeteria, as usual neat clean always present with all foods for all times of the day, evening and night. Crab Shack and Steak House, are a must do. Curtis Stone's Share also an experience that should be done. Good Food, Good Wine, Good Family and New Friends. On n off the ship, not a problem, easy, quick and staff courteous and informative. On n off the ship via Tenders also trouble free and ran smoothly and effectively considering the numbers going ashore. Overall a great cruise. Staff from the ever informative Captain to the cabin attendant all helpful, courteous and able to answer all questions and all willing to provide suggestions and alternatives. First time away for myself and family over the Christmas / New Year period and found it totally enjoyable and a great experience, would love to do it again. Better half already sending me information regarding our next adventure. Read Less
