We were recently on the 'princess' cruise for 2.5 hours. The food was delicious. The crew were very accomodating, and made sure everything was running smoothly. This was our first time, and we very much enjoyed it.

Great commentary about Newcastle and Harbour. I have lived here for 40 years and still learnt things. Food was good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Price was very reasonable and no surcharges for Public Holidays. I highly recommend for locals and tourists.
