  3. Sea Princess
We flew to Singapore to join the Sea Princess but she still had plenty of work not done including carpets not laid and the kids club was not able to be used for the whole 12 day voyage. Bringing three grandchildren with us it was a bit disappointing but they still had a great time, thanks to the lovely staff who looked after them in various places around the ship. There were some very poor choices in carpet especially the new grey and white carpet in the buffet which looked dirty after a few days! What were they thinking! The cruise went from Singapore to Phuket,Langkawi,Penang,KL, Bali and finally Fremantle. As on all Australian based Princess ships the staff were great especially the waiters and cabin staff. Upper management seemed to be clueless at times and would not give the people under them any powers to make decisions. Our minibar setup had stale dated soft drinks in it and it was a real struggle to get this issue sorted out. No one seemed to have any authority to fix the problem. We had been to all the ports before but our son and grandchildren had not so for them it was frustrating when the ship was late docking at almost all the ports.WHY? Anyway we had a great time thanks to a very nice cruise director Neil and the many regular staff who were kind and friendly. Oh by the way the new beds were really great! Meals were pretty good although we had some tough steak a couple of times. I think the Princess crown is slipping a bit especially in the Australian ships in terms of quality of food.

Never join a ship just out of dry dock!!!
