Alaskan Cruise     0 , VIC, Australia, Apr 2024
First time cruise and enjoyed every minute. Princess cruises are well organised and the cruise went according to plan. Great food and on board entertainment was entertaining. A very relaxing 7 days and the scenery breathtaking.
Great Cruise Through inside passage Alaska   0 , QLD, Australia, Apr 2024
Amazing scenery that you wouldn't see anywhere else in the world, towering snow-capped mountains, and huge glaciers absolutely wonderful would recommend it to everyone.
Perfect Royal Princess Sydney to Yokohama   0 , Nelson, New Zealand, Apr 2024
Our first-time cruising with Princess and we'll definitely return. The Royal Princess is not a Wow looking ship, but it's absence of waterfalls, ice-skating rinks, shopping malls and the like really suited our style of cruising. The staff were all exceptional! The entertainment was fabulous, the meals were delicious and our bed was extremely comfortable! ...read more The itinerary included quite a few at sea days (one stretch of 4 days and another of 5 days) however the entertainment was ramped up so you never felt bored. We enjoyed the ports-of-call and had a mix of ship-booked excursions and doing it alone. The ship's excursions were very pricey and the main comment we heard was that they weren't worth the money.
Our booking experience with Georgie at Global Journeys was faultless! She kept us readily informed and couldn't have been more helpful. An excellent service.
Mini Cruise   0 , NSW, Australia, Mar 2024
Great way to travel back to Sydney from Melbourne. We were quite impressed with Princess Cruises. Fantastic shows, food and service. Well organised and loved talking to lots of different people at the shared tables which were always available at different times. You need to book at all restaurants if you want to sit with just your party.
14-Day New Zealand Cruise - Melbourne Return   1 , VIC, Australia, Feb 2024
Our cruise with the Grand Princess was absolutely fantastic and would recommend it to everyone. Our agent Hannah was simply great with our booking, planning, updates, reassurances everything was completed, etc. She was most helpful in every way and she was most appreciated as she will be with our next two bookings. Thanks Hannah.
Last minute NZ cruise   2 , New South Wales, Australia, Jan 2024
Last minute decision for a cruise from Sydney. Having been well served by Global Journeys on our last NZ holiday and having cruised with Princess in Europe, it was an easy call. Hannah promptly provided a great quote for one of the last suites available and it was arranged in no time. Communication was excellent and everything went smoothly. Cruise ...read more and weather was great and we loved returning to NZ. We are now asking Hannah for a quote on an Uluru trip later in the year. I have recommended Global Journeys to our family and friends when they are looking for a reliable travel agency.
Princess Cruise and Georgie     3 , Cambodia, Australia, Jan 2024
Was a brilliant holiday even made more so with the input and help from Georgie at Global Journeys.
Enjoyable South East Asia   10 , Australia, Dec 2023
The cruise itself was great and the reserve dining was fantastic. Great food and great service. Only downside was the chaos of boarding the ship in Singapore. This was a surprise because normally Singapore is a pretty efficient place but boarding was a total mess. Took hours and the system was a shambles. No priority boarding for suite holders and even ...read more luggage drop off took almost an hour which was madness. Once onboard all was fine.
