Time was limited (11 days) but would have enjoyed talks from the maritime staff and the audience...there were many stories! This cruise left from Brisbane to Papua New Guinea and back to Brisbane.
One of my sisters had not been to New Zealand so we chose to join the Sea Princess. Three children under 18, parents in 40’s and grandparents over 60. High praise for Edwin & Jun in the bar at level 5 and added to the ambience of this section of ship to become our meeting place when couples became lost. The New Zealand lamb in Sterling Steakhouse ,exquisite . The age profile of the passengers is quite old with a disproportionate number using walking frames, buggies & wheelchairs.
The Sun Princess crew that we came in contact with were all very helpful and courteous in every respect. Whenever they saw us later on, they greeted us by name. Former park ranger on our morning cruise gave us nonstop information on area culture, lobster fishery, geology, and wildlife. Fortunately, I found that the Wheelhouse Bar on Deck 7 had Bulmers Cider on draught, unfortunately it was only open in the evenings. This is our own policy. On the plus side, the staff on board have always been and continue to be amazing, extremely helpful and just genuinely happy people, it really does make your vacation so much nicer when the people around you appear to be happy. Princess Cruises ’ Sea Princess is an elegant vessel which comfortably houses 2000 guests. However, I did hear others say they enjoyed it. I just loved the dairy free desserts that were made!! My suggestion for future cruise travellers, is to look very carefully at the smoking areas on the ship (2 allocated areas) when booking staterooms and avoid balcony staterooms in those areas, if you object to breathing second-hand smoke. Service was really excellent and food was pretty good.
Willing to try another Princess ship. Launched in 1998, Sea Princess cruise ship is the 3rd Sun-class vessel, with sisterships Dawn Princess (now Pacific Explorer) and Sun Princess.. History - construction and ownership. Again, no excursions but you saw dancing, beautiful beaches, could swim and snorkel, travel in canoes etc. Despite her impressive size just more than a decade ago, the Sea Princess is a midsize ship by today's standards. I have certainly made a note of cabins that I would avoid next time. The ship itself is old but well maintained, and very clean. It was a great way to see the beautiful coast of Maine. This trip, the price of every thing seems to have gone ... No animal cruelty in our stateroom cabin / balcony as could not swing a cat and taken back to be greeted with two single beds so second honeymoon called off there and then !!
We would travel again on princess cruises and recommend to our friends. Of the 13 days, six were at sea so there wasn’t a lot of time allocated for shore excursions.
Partner and i have done about 15 cruises between us. The crew on the ship were excellent too and overall I would say the best crew I have ever come across in over 30 cruises. The french onion soup in the Traviata dining room highly recommended. The Casino had limited table games, and there were plenty of pokies. It's easy to find the building where you exchange money for tokens. If you can obtain lower dominations of Kina, it makes it easier to buy smaller items from the markets, stalls etc. The bathroom was very small, and the door opened onto the wardrobe door when opened, a few bumps there between me and my husband. Gliding into Rabaul's scenic harbour was a highlight too. The only meals we were unimpressed with was one breakfast in the dining room and the English Pub lunch.
Our balcony stateroom was decent although a couple of extra square feet would have made a real difference in the comfort. Summary: it was our first time on a Princess ship, but would not go on Sea Princess again. I enjoyed taking my time walking around the ships and I had no difficulty get on and off the tender when going ashore. This smoking area is just outside the doors and therefore, each time the doors open, the smoke pours into to the adjacent lift lobby, the Vista lounge and the photographic area.
