Short summary of my thoughts on 11 day New Guinea on Sea Princess

Recommended Posts

In summary of our 11 night cruise on Sea Princess and things worth buying.

The coffee card at $35 is good value for 15 cups of whatever size of various kinds of coffee and as many brewed coffee as you wish.

For me the Soda and more proved to be good value as a mocktail costs $6.50 for one and for only $7 per day you can have as many as you wish as well as any kind of soda you like plus endless hot chocolate.

For John who likes his beer a bucket of Fat Yak at $36 

(5 for the price of 4)suited him.

We missed the movie by demand that they have on Sun

All we ate was excellent barring the chicken broth from MDR.

Room steward was efficient 

Drink waiters in Horizon Court were excellent 

Cruise director Matt did a good job

Entertainment was sufficient but would like to see more comedians

Crooners bar was always good for pre and post dinner drinks if you weren’t going to a show always nice music to listen to.

The ship was sparkling clean

Seemed to have problems with the lifts 

Also problems with printing your daily account.

Beds were really comfortable with good pillow choice

I did do a blog with a few pics if you want to look

Depends on your personal taste some don’t like seeing how poor others are.

we did miss two islands as you can see so did not get a real overall idea,

If I may add to that, the scenery is outstanding. It's like a tropical New Zealand. Postcard quality beautiful islands. Majestic jungle clad mountain ranges that drop down to the sea.

 

The people are mostly friendly, especially in the outlying areas, although that can change if you get out of line as they see it.

 

The towns are depressing unless you are into third world poverty, and can be dangerous if you aren't careful.

 

Very much worth a visit, so long as you are aware of what to expect.
