Review of Dawn Princess

Launched in 1997, Dawn Princess is the 2nd Sun-class Princess Cruises ship, together with Sea and Sun. The ship cost US $300 million to build and was last refurbished in 2012.

History - construction & ownership

Princess Cruises is a cruise line headquartered in Santa Clarita CA in the U.S. and incorporated in Bermuda. The company, which was previously a subsidiary of P&O Princess Cruises, is now one of the ten cruise ship brands owned by the largest cruise ship operator in the world Carnival Corporation & plc. Princess accounts for around 19% share of its revenue and is part of Holland America Group, controlling the three Carnival brands based on the U.S. West Coast. The line's ships sail worldwide and are marketed to American and international travelers. Princess Cruises company was made famous by the TV series "The Love Boat", in which Pacific Princess was featured. The brand new Royal Princess became line's flagship in May 2013, and a year later was joined by a new sister-ship, Regal Princess.

The 77,441-ton, 1,950-passenger Dawn Princess is constantly based in Australia and offers Australia/New Zealand, South Pacific, Hawaii and world cruises. Onboard prices are in Australian dollars, Vegemite replaces peanut butter at breakfast, and the fitness center runs classes like "legs, bums and tums." As opposed to Princess' other vessels, Dawn Princess cruise ship doesn't offer a versatile dining option in the major dining room (guests might dine at early or late seating, or simply choose another restaurant). Dawn Princess is far more intimate than its twenty-first-century siblings, but that also means that facilities are neither as large nor as well equipped as those on the fleet's newer ships. The size is particularly felt in the Horizon Court buffet restaurant (where options are not as varied as in other lido buffets), the cramped workout room and the underwhelming teen lounge. On the other side, having 2 show lounges is a good way to give cruisers more entertainment opportunities every night, and Princess really utilizes the space it does have with a wide diversity of onboard activities, everything from ceramics to dance classes, game tournaments to computer workshops.

Cruise itinerary program

Dawn Princess itinerary program is based on Australia and New Zealand cruises, departing from Sydney, Fremantle and Melbourne cruise ports. In mid 2017, the ship will be renamed “Pacific Explorer” and transferred to P&O Australia.

Dawn Princess

Cabins

Most Dawn Princess staterooms are 145-sq.foot insides rooms (396). Almost 70% of ship's outside accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 999 staterooms in 27 categories. 19 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. The largest aboard Dawn Princess are the Balcony Suites (470 ft2).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

The Florentine and Venetian Dining Rooms are virtually identical, differing only in their decor color and in the exquisite murals depicting Florence and Venice. Both rooms contain etched glass panels and lovely wood, creating a feeling of intimate dining. The food preparation is of very good quality, beautifully presented and varied. Vegetarian selections are excellent, desserts - superb. A good selection of healthy items is provided every night. Waiters are friendly and helpful. The popular dining venue, Horizon Court, is open 24 hours a day. Horizon Court is situated one deck above ship's swimming area. The buffet is tiny by new-ship standards, but offers excellent breakfast options from 4 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., along with abundance of fruits and breads, and European specialties.
