Big group of friends in our 20s went with Princess Cruises to NZ end of 2016. We had a lot of fun and thought the cruise was value for money, loved the stops and the food and staff were amazing. However I just want to point out that it is important to look into the average age bracket of the cruise
lines you go with as a staff member told us we brought the average age down to 73 on a 2,000 people boat! It was still very fun but it is important to check the ages so more things are catered to your ages.
Room and Crew were lovely. Top price for very average food in package, lovely if you paid at one of the restaurants. Entertainment poor unless you liked Bingo or Trivia. Shows very basic. Booked for Rock and Roll-ended up being food and wine with charges for the food and wine tastings. Bronte and
Dom were just fantastic as was Chef Daniel. I also enjoyed the very rough weather! Many cruislings didn't, so pleased we did finally head out on Saturday morning as staying at White Bay Terminal would have been....the final straw!
Not a good experience for my first ever cruise.
We had a great time on this beautiful ship. It is huge. The crew and staff were amazing and very friendly. The cabin was large and very clean and nothing was too much trouble for our room attendant. The food got a bit boring but was tasty and there was plenty of it. Entertainment was of a high
standard. There is plenty to do or you can find a deck chair and just relax. We had great fun bar hopping. The other passengers were very friendly and there was always someone to chat to and we became great friends with the people at our dinner table. There is no doubt that Voyager is amazing. You can join me in with the crowds or there are plenty of quite spots.
we went on state of origin cruise in 2016 to syd would have to say it was the most enjoyable cruise we have done met some great people from both sides of the border and had plenty of friendly banter going back and forward,most meals in the plantation and dined with complete strangers each night but
by the end of the night they were like old friends.only down side was the trip out to the ground for the game we struck a bus driver who did not seem to know his way round syd to well and it took nearly two hours to get there different driver going back to the dawn 55 mins.all in all great trip and doing again this year on aria hope it is just as good and meet some old friends again plus some new ones.
Everything went well, my only slight critiscim would be not enough variety in the daytime actives. Also we were cut back on two shore stops which added another sea day (made it 4 in a row) this was a bit annoying. I think it was something to do with one of the engines. The staff onboard were all
very friendly and helpful. We are cruising again in November, it's a very cost effective way to holiday in my opinion.

Loved everything about our recent cruise on the Pacific Pearl. Staff were amazing! So much to do on board. What was so great was if you wanted to find a crowd you could but if you wanted to find a quiet place by yourselves that was just as easy. Went with my husband and loved it so much that we
booked to take the teenagers in October. I would highly recommend spending a bit more and get a window. Also if you get sea sick make sure to book on the lower floor in the middle of the ship. Oh and don't forget to take lanyards for your id. That was one thing no one told me about and you will pay more money on board to buy one when you can get these at the dollar store.
I have been on the Dawn on 3 cruises total 36 nights NZ, Fiji, Vanuatu. I have found it to be the best way of spending my hard earned money for a vacation. Everything is great about this ship and cruise line. Staff are so good at looking after you no matter what. Thanks to P & O also putting
together the premium drink package with my booking, makes the cruises very good value for money. Going on 4th cruise in June, can't wait to see the refurb
Fantastic Cruise: we were in the tail end of norovirus when we got on and they staff and crew worked hard to make sure we were safe, the staff were fabulous washing tables and chairs in the dining room every night to make sure they killed the virus, I believe she is norovirus free after we got off,
my hat goes off to the staff, for the efforts to kill the virus....thanks again princess had a fabulous time.
