Out of 7 Cruises we have travelled with Princess 6 times and our last cruise in Nov. 2015 was with another line, but we will stick with Princess and we love the Sun Princess having sailed on her 3 times. We wound recommend the Sun Princess to any one Great Stewards and Dining staff, great meals and just a enjoyable time.

My husband & I both enjoyed our cruise very much! Staff was lovely, activities & meals were wonderful. Really enjoyed the onshore visits in New Zealand. I am on a special diet (gluten free) & found my needs were met very well.
Looking forward to our next cruise,
Well done Princess Cruises!
