DON'T BELIEVE THE HORRIBLE REVIEWS!
"So my partner and I went on a 7 night cruise to Hamilton Island and Cairns. I really want to start off by saying if you're going on the Aria have an open mind! Before we left I read all of the reviews and obviously..."Read More

Review for Sea Princess to Australia & New Zealand

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 ...

For context this was our 5th cruise. We have sailed on Holland America's Maasdam ( Southern Carribean), Carnival Breeze (Mediterranean), Royal Caribbean Navigator Of The Seas (Mediterranean) and Ovation OTS( New Zealand). This was our first cruise with P&O Australia. My wife and I and 2 friends sailed to Papua New Guinea on February 22 out of Brisbane for 10 days. At this time travel ...

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 ...

The cruise in general was very good and we were happy with the entertainment, activities and food - our cabin staff worked very hard and so did the cruise director. Due the corona virus we missed 2 ports which was dissappointing and P&O said that we were not going to be offered any compensation which I was not happy about. Many other passengers had received room credits in the past when these have ...

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 ...

My daughter had been on Carnival and Princess Cruises. She wanted us all to go on one together. A lovely ship with the majority of staff that were just so friendly. Room decor a bit dated and the windows had obviously seen many days at sea so they looked dirty although they weren't. Very spacious, a/c worked great. It was the last voyage from Brisbane as it will remain in Melbourne for a bit of ...

The crew we met complained about working long hours and receiving poor pay in return. The entertainment was rubbish with the singers obviously miming and the theatre was very cold. We were in cabin 11195 but couldn’t use the miniscule balcony as there was water leaking from the water slide above. The furniture on the balcony was filthy and paint was splashed over it and the glass doors. ...

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 ...
