Chose the cruise for the itinerary. Wonderful ports. The food never disappoints. Cabin service was great. The entertainment was varied. My favorite is always the production numbers and Secret Silk was outstanding. I would have liked the others to be a bit longer. The ship seemed to have issues. There were a number of leaks with buckets around to catch the water. There were power issues in some of the rooms. Our dining experience is always good. The food was varied and prepared to order. The wait staff was attentive, courteous and friendly. They seemed to enjoy their work. The shore excursions were awful. We only did 2 and that was too many. The experience was terrible. Everything seemed to be very unorganized. We did private tours in most ports and had great experiences. I love Princess and will continue to sail with them. I hope this was just a fluke. Read Less

This cruise went in and out of Singapore. All wheelchair access cabins from Fremantle (our home port) were booked to 2020 for school holiday periods. Singapore is a direct flight, 5 hours from Perth about the same as flying to Brisbane. The cruise itinerary was perfect for Mum and Dad, lots of ports where they could see all the bustle from their balcony. Dad spent a lot of time on the balcony or in the cabin listening to the sea. He could get to a bar easily from his cabin with his walker. Getting to restaurants was much more difficult as they were much further from the cabin. He did build stamina getting to dinner every night. The restaurants had good meals and great service. A couple of times they realised the helpings for a dish might be a bit small for our teenage boys and offered and supplied something more. They also kept topping up the bread rolls for them. We mostly went to the buffet for breakfast and Dad had breakfast in the cabin. For lunch, we sat near one of the pools and got a selection from the buffet, pizza and burger places. Going around the buffet, after the walk there, was too much for Mum and Dad. But what about the electric wheelchair? Well, we booked one just like the one Mum uses at home through Special Needs at Sea Group (SNG). It would be delivered to her stateroom and there for her on arrival. It needed to be left in the stateroom on departing the ship after 10 days. All sorts of penalties for us in the paperwork if we weren't there, if we didn't get everything right. BUT IT WASN'T THERE. No electric wheelchair. Princess Cruises knew it should be there but were having trouble contacting Special Needs at Sea. We left without it. We hoped it would be at the next port. It wasn't. SNG could only be contacted through the night because of the time difference. My nights were spent emailing and ringing SNG to find out when and where we would be getting our electric wheelchair. Eventually, nearly a week into a 10 day cruise, they said we wouldn't be getting one. This meant that Mum was left with me pushing her around in the wheelchair we had brought for getting to and from the airports. She could not move it around by hand (arthritis in hands and shoulders) any more than she can walk. I had to take her to the toilet all through the day. Shore excursions could be no more than 2 hours for me or she would have an accident. The cruise would have been wonderful for the whole family to spend quality time together if the electric wheelchair (powerchair) had been supplied by SNG as promised. This wrecked the cruise for us. It wasn't as though we could just get off and go home which was what we wanted to do. Read Less

We chose this cruise based on a couple of the cities that were on the itinerary that we had never been to before. Unfortunately, when we arrived onboard to our stateroom, there was a letter stating that Koh Samui had been removed from the itinerary and they had replaced it with Sihanoukville in Cambodia. This was not a huge issue, considering we had not been to Sihanoukville before, so we were looking forward to going there instead, as an alternative. In relation to the shore excursion, we opted for the free shuttle that was offered. After waiting 1.5 hours in the baking sun on the port in a huge line, we were informed that the shuttle buses were stuck in traffic and they didn't know how long it would be till they arrived. A guest suggested that a drink of cold water and some umbrellas for shade would be a good idea for the elderly and the children stuck in the line (this was after waiting for over an hour) and finally we received them. When one shuttle bus finally arrived back in port, the passengers who got off it said they had been on the bus for 3 hours. They had been stuck in traffic in the one spot for 2 hours going nowhere and then the bus turned around and brought them back to port. They didn't get to the market at all. Another passenger who had gotten a private taxi to the market said that it wasn't even worth going to. Very busy, crowded and only items relevant to the locals were being sold there. We had been keen to go to the market and then get a tuk-tuk down to the beach for a few hours. We thought they should have found out beforehand how many people were interested in going on the free shuttle so they could have had an idea of numbers instead of just waiting to see how many people lined up to get off. We were very disappointed to have missed out on this opportunity, especially after the disappointment of missing out on Koh Samui. The reason they had given us for bypassing Koh Samui was that there would be too many ships in port on the day of our arrival. These itineraries are arranged a year in advance. This did not seem like a very valid or viable reason, given that if Koh Samui were going to turn away a ship, it not likely be 3,000 cashed passengers. The tv advertisements for the cruises always show just a couple of people enjoying privacy and space on the ship and on the shore excursions. this is not the reality. But if you go with that in mind, you wont be too shocked at how busy it is and the shore excursions are always a bit of a rush and expensive. The food is very good and I loved having the formal nights. It is lovely to get dressed up and have a fancy dinner. It was also really good that everyone else was dressed up too. It wasn't just a few people, nearly everyone joined in on the formal nights. We were also pleased that once a movie had been shown on the outdoor cinema that it was then available to watch again in your stateroom on your tv. There was a great variety of movies and shows available in your stateroom. We purchased the soft drink package before we left. We had a note in our stateroom that the complimentary tumblers that came with the package were all gone and more would be arriving soon. In the meantime, they gave us a bottle of water each for our room as a thank you for our patience whilst we waited for them to arrive. A few days into the cruise, we went to the reception desk to enquire about the tumblers only to be told that the bottle of water was all we were being given. The card we had stating that we would be receiving the tumblers was wrong and there was nothing we could do about it. Again, a bit disappointing, but it didn't detract from our overall relaxing holiday that we enjoyed. Read Less
