Tired old Sun Princess

Sun Princess Cruise Review by Syran1212

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2019
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We cruised over the Christmas/New Year with anticipation of an at sea experience - the menu for Christmas day was seriously underwhelming.

We booked a mini suite - while it was roomier than a standard cabin, the balcony was tiny - couldn't even put a deck chair facing the water - could only sit side on.

The lounge furniture was dirty and stained - the whole decor looked old and tired.

The bathroom was an interesting design - if you sit on the toilet, your knees are touching the wall and if your partner opens the door, you can loose a knee cap!

The gym is probably the tiniest I've experienced on board a cruise ship although the equipment was modern (more so than the suite furniture).

If you have a food allergy, don't expect to be wowed by your meal choices. We were advised that much of the produce is pre-packaged therefore greatly reducing the ability of the onboard cooks to modify a meal to cater for a dietary requirement.

While we have cruised with Princess on a number of occasions and had a great experience, this ship isn't in the same class - lifts were broken and out of service, machinery was breaking down and the furniture in the crooners bar was like the min suite, old and grotty.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Bed was comfortable - suite was roomy although balcony was tiny - almost unusable.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


What a surprise - so pleased we were able to visit.

Komodo Island

The tour to the island was as expected - we saw dragons, pigs and deer so left satisfied


Not for us - we self toured the beach and shops and market stalls of Kuta. The Bali Bombing Memorial was quite sobering when reading through all the names of the many innocent lives lost.
