What a fabulous cruise - wonderful ship, lovely food and just the best dancing ever.

We booked this cruise because we love to dance - although we are only social dancers, we do enjoy it. There was a dance class each sea day taught by the lovely Eugene and Darya and dancing each evening in the Queens room as well as great music in the Yacht Club.

There are 6 male dance hosts that dance with single ladies as well as ladies who's husbands don't dace. These are lovely guys and were very good at maneuvering ladies around the dance floor. There was also a sequence dance taught each day that we could do in the evenings. This is the only cruise we've enjoyed where I have not put on weight...gotta love that!

Embarkation was a bit disjointed as we went to the ship first before being re-directed to the convention center for check-in and then sent by bus to the ship.

Lovely cabin -6094 - Princess Grill. Plenty of hanging space. Very quiet.

Meals in the Princess Grill were good but a bit limited. Until that is, I requested salmon and was told that it was available - I just had to ask. Also, if I wanted anything from the lunch menu for that evenings dinner - again, just ask!

We loved the dance demonstration each evening at sea by the professional dance couple - they were fantastic. We only went to the show 5 nights from the 16 and thought they were a bit amateurish although the magician was very good.

There were other activities around the ship on the sea days but we didn't partake in any so cant comment on them.

Cant wait for our next cruise on Cunard.

Cabin Review

Princess Suite
Cabin P2 6094

Lovely cabin, plenty of hanging space. Small bathroom with shower over bath but the wardrobe space made up for any deficiency there. Very small balcony. Cabin very quiet and in a good position close to the stairs.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Perth (Fremantle)

There were no luggage trolleys for those disembarking. We had two large cases and several small cabin bags as well as other luggage and it was very difficult to move it all bit by bit along the taxi cue. It was a long wait for taxis.

Cape Town

Embarkation was disjointed as were went to the cruise terminal just to be told to go to the convention center. There were were checked in and then taken by bus to the cruise terminal where we boarded the ship.
