Everything was disappointing
"This is a cruise review i thought we would never have to write-- we had a really, really disappointing cruise. Embarkation seemed to go smoothly enough but then one of the keys wasn't even processed appropriately..."Read More

We chose this cruise as we were going to Australia and wanted to visit New Zealand whilst we were in that part of the world. So we went to Brisbane to board the ship and first of all it was a fiasco at the port, there seemed no organisation and there were queues galore and nobody seemed to know why. Anyway after a very, very long wait we eventually boarded the ship, the SEA PRINCESS which seemed ...

My first Princess cruise and loved every minute. The inside cabin on deck 12 handy to the great outdoors, bar, buffets, and lifts down into the ship. The food in the Horizon Court was better than expexted savoring 21 differenr soups in 14 days,the clam chowder outstanding. The french onion soup in the Traviata dining room highly recommended. The New Zealand lamb in Sterling Steakhouse ...

Always wanted to see New Zealand and we thought that a cruise would provide the best opportunity to visit the various regions. We took the New Zealand 15 day cruise with Princess and were booked on the Sea Princess. While we enjoyed all of the Ports of Call and tours there were some negative aspects to our cruise. We had never sailed on the Sun Princess but were aware it was smaller than ...

We think the crew and the activities supplied for the cruise were fanastic. The choice of dining was outstanding and well presented. Overall good value and a great holiday. We would sail on her again. We think Princess cruises have a good understanding of our needs and catered to perfection, so that our holiday was an excellent experience. The cabin was well serviced each day and Steward thought ...

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, and got an inside cabin at a very good price. We had Anytime Dining and could generally get a table (around 7.45 pm). We liked our waiters on the second night so we asked to be ...

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 and unfortunately the food was pretty woeful again. It would be better to raise the price by a couple of hundred bucks and keep the food as amazing as it used to be instead of just ...

Chose this cruise for family of 8. Three children under 18, parents in 40’s and grandparents over 60. We grandparents have spent much time on Sea Princess, each sailing we notice the cut downs everywhere - staff, indifferent service by some, lousy movies on deck and on cabin TV’s. Very little for under 18’s unless in kids club. Also for the under 50’s. Still the same ‘games’ etc. very little ...

After living in Papua New Guinea in the 1970s, my husband and I decided do a cruise there to visit other areas we had not seen. This cruise left from Brisbane to Papua New Guinea and back to Brisbane. The cruise terminal at Brisbane is archaic and extremely hot in summer, especially when you are lining up for ages, which we did. The smaller ship experience on the Sea Princess was great. We ...

We chose Princess Cruises because we wanted to see New Zealand. This was our 9th Ocean Cruise with various cruise lines, and we have also been on 10 River Cruises, mostly with Viking. We chose Anytime Dining, not wanting the alternatives of either an early sitting (5:30pm) or a late sitting (7:45pm) and not wanting to use the buffet on Deck 14. We had to wait outside the dining room, sometimes ...

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 booked. I was disappointed in the overall look of the ship as it is in need of a renovation. Some common areas had rust and stains and dated furnishings. Our balcony stateroom was decent ...
