We were relaxed and rejuvenated.
"This was a spur of the moment cruise for us (our 3rd cruise over 40 years). Convenient because it sailed from Fremantle and returned there, and 6 nights was enough time away during summer & the risk of bushfires...."Read More

This was our first cruise on C.M.V. so we were unsure what to expect. We had the quickest ever embarkation in Freemantle and first impression of the ship was very favourable and that opinion did not alter. The décor, layout and cleanliness of the ship was first class. We had chosen an inside cabin 5240 and again was pleasantly surprised with the space, layout and décor and it was available as ...

Originally, the ship was going to Komodo Island, but this was cancelled and Lombok was one of the destinations instead. However, we were told before we took the cruise. We had travelled on the ship before in 2006 when it was Holland America's 'Statendam' but we only found out after we had booked. The ship looks totally different and the most outstanding feature for us were the three ...

I chose the cruise V014 - Broome & Treasures of the North because of the destinations of the cruise. BIG MISTAKE - we visited Geraldton on the Monday after leaving Fremantle on the Sunday, I prebooked a tour of Geraldton - it was hot in excess of 40 degrees at 0900 we were trundled up to the HMAS Sydney memorial whilst nice was very hot, during the chat from one of the gents volentering I heard a ...

Day we got on the cruise I turned on the air-conditioner, to the highest temperature only to find out that it wasn’t working. I then decided to have a shower and found that there was no hot water. The technician arrived approximately 2 hours later to repair the shower. It was really disappointing because we had a long day and needed to shower and retire. After the repair to the shower the bath ...

A small ship, 500 passengers, no children, Sea of Cortez, what could go wrong? The passengers were older. A guess of the average age was approximately 75. The attitude of the ship management. The restaurant staff, bar staff and entertainment was excellent. The cruise director and assistant were part of the show staff. The pianist was excellent. Liz, a classically trained singer has an ...

The advantage of this cruise for Perth is it leaves and returns to Fremantle (with a free shuttle to get you to the train station, if you, like us are taking the train to your home). Each day there would be an announcement of where we were (by latitude and longitude)-I think it would have been good to say something like "If we were on land now, we would be in Busselton", or something ...

Fringe Festival - 1 night in-Port

We love the Fringe Festival and thought this would be something different and exciting to do. How wrong could we be? Embarkation was smooth for us but our friends were held up because they had a very slow person who couldn’t type the information quickly or correctly and made many mistakes so it took them a while to check in. Our Cabin 9090 was a good size (for a ship) but the floor was ...

My husband and I wanted to try another ship from Fremantle rather than fly over east or to Singapore for a short cruise, as we sail about 6 times a year. This was a one night in port celebration when we booked, but later converted to part of the Perth Fringe festival. We went on the Astor in 2018 for 1 night (which we hated!) but thought the Vasco da Gama might be a better option as it was ex ...

We have travelled on 2 or 3 cruise lines, but with princess cruises more than any other cruise lines including p&o, their associate cruise line. Satisfaction & familiarity are a good description of our cruises. All in this group offer this but l believe we have become used to what princess offers in regard to entertainment (night shows), meals, room service, loyalty programmes ...
