Some setbacks but a good cruise anyway

It is nice to cruise into Fremantle and we scored a good deal for 3 adults sharing. We had enjoyed several trips on Sun Princess and were fully aware of its advantages and issues. I will tell it as it is, with ...

NZ ports visited by the aging Sun Princess.

We are a retired couple, but still pretty active. We chose this January cruise because we wanted summer weather in the middle of our US winter, and because the dates were just right for us. Australia and New ...

We have cruised with Princess 10 times and wanted a getaway with no flights. Which is very rare in Perth as the Cruise Lines are ignoring Perth especially for Fremantle return cruises and North instead of cold rough ...
