no more golden princess trip

published

Travelled on Golden princess before but this time was not good. Entertainment for teenagers but most persons were pensioners. We walked out on two shows. Hannah Howie was very good.
Food for gluten free person was not good hardly any choice. Never going again.

CONCERNED

published

Paid a deposit for cruise next year and received a final notice of the payment date with the wrong amount of deposit paid in their favour.
Have emailed them a copy of the receipt showing what I have paid a few days ago and still waiting for them to adjust with the correct amount.

The most perfect ship in the world

published

I went on this cruise earlier this year from brisbane to fiji and it is so incredible the lengths that the staff of this ship go to to determine that everyone has a great cruise. They work 12-14 hour days and the room attendants, the galley staff, the entertainment staff and all the rest of staff they just dismay with their hospitality and how great we feel at the end of cruise.

Lovely cruise , Food very poor

published

My husband and I traveled on Sapphire Princes on the 27th July 2019 to 10 August , leaving from Southampton to Portimao , Cadiz, Sete , Ajaccio , Malaga , Ceuta, Lisban and Back to Southampton.
Fantastic trip best ever, great staff and fabulous shows. BUT the food was extremely disappointing, sent the dishes when fine dining back several times, like all the other quests we spoke too. Food is part of your holiday, we have been on other Princes cruises and food fantastic.
We are now booking another cruise but not with Princes again,London to Sydney, we will either go Cunard or Celebrity, pay a little more and have real fine dining with great food.

Be aware of specials?

published

We booked our cruise from a Landmark Sale brochure which expires 19th December 2019 and was expecting $200 onboard credit but guess what ??? There's an unmentioned loophole hidden somewhere. PRINCESS CRUISES have advised in no uncertain terms that we're not entitled to it because we paid a cheaper fare (that was on their website) BUT if we want to pay an extra $300 -each we would get it? Do they think we're that stupid?
So the moral of this story is be aware of false promises, we haven't sailed yet because we really don't want to lose $1600 if we cancel our trip that we had to pay in full within 2 days.
WE WILL ONLY BE CRUISING ONCE WITH PRINCESS.....ONCE BITTEN TWICE SHY!
Your loss Princess

Best holiday

published

Took a cruise out of Melbourne and around NZ earlier this year (2019), including Fiordland (probably the highlight). Nothing I could complain about. All staff great. Ship wonderful. Locations visited were great. Everything is taken care of for you. Food was wonderful, huge variety, wonderfully presented and all included in the price. You can of course spend extra to go to the high-end restaurants on-board, which we did a couple of times and was worth doing, as they were 5 star and truly special. Would certainly go on another Princess Cruise.

Amazing ship sailing around Japan

published

We did this cruise around Japan called the flower cruise. It was fantadtic and sure enough the cherry blossoms were in full bloom. The cruise was fantastic. Our cabin was a good size, we had the port hole obstructed to try it out although port holes are not worth it as the windows are so dirty with salt spray. I would go balcony if you can afford it and if you spend alot of time in cabin. The tours from the ship were all fantastic and all had English speaking guides but make sure you book the tours where it says English Speaking Guide. The food on the ship is incredible and the entertainment were spectacular. It really is like a city on a ship, it was a very good holiday. Highly recommended!

Disappointing

published

We’ve sailed on the Golden Princess quite a few times and will be sorry to see her go to P&O. We even did a 75 night cruise on her once. However, apart from coming off her this March with the flu (not Princess’s fault), we had a really disappointing experience because of the cruise director - PJ. The story is too long to tell here although I do have a 2 page letter I sent him. The 3rd letter/note in a 2 week cruise. No response. We felt deceived, disappointed and at a loss to understand the arrogance. Hope not to meet him again on future cruises as he really spoilt this one!
