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 within about 15 minutes of arriving at the terminal. Our cabins were ready straight away, so we could drop off our hand luggage.
The entertainment in the theatre was excellent. There was a comedian who was very funny. Diane Cousins, a welsh comedian/singer was also very entertaining. She was so good, she was not only given a standing ovation, but the audience didn’t leave their seats until she did a short encore. The Princess singers and dancers did a show called “The British Invasion” which was very polished.
We often choose interior cabins but this would be one of the smallest we have ever had. Very small TV. Tatty carpet. Bed and pillows extremely comfortable. This cabin was okay for 4 nights but I wouldn’t have wanted to spend any longer.
Complimentary shuttle bus provided by town. Lovely shops and good cafés.
