Hi, We were on the sea princess in may and there is noise from the cinema, but as Dobson said there are plenty of quiet areas for you to relax in. We are in our late 40s and had my 83 year old mother with us, and she enjoyed laying in the sun, and watching a film. We found that there was plenty of sun beds, but then we didn't go when the schools were on holiday? We are going on the Grand Princess in May 09 and if its anything like the Sea Princess for atmosphere, entertainment, food etc it will be first class. We are going on Arcadia in Nov, and quite honestly we would much rather be going on a princess!!( Problems with the ship and loads of bad reviews)Have a great holiday. Look forward to reading your review when you return.
Went on Sea Princess at Easter; going again Easter 2010. It is simple not true. Yes there is a MUTS screen byt the two main pools but there are other areas of the ship where you will get peace and quiet, with sunbeds AND a pool!
Go to the stern (back) of the ship where you willfind a peaceful little area (actually above the gym). There are sunbeds, a small pool (mainly for adults) and a little bar. We also went on sun deck at the bow (front) of the ship. There is also a quiet little area with a splash pool there too.
Don't beleive all negative comments. Some people think a bird twittering is ear piercing noise!
Sea Princess caters for mainly Brits; the 'older' market and younf families. I was in Caribbean at peak season (I'm a teacher) and found it peaceful and relaxing. By that time I wanted a break from kids and found those areas of the ship just right. Oh, and I'm only 29. Us 'young' uns like peace and quiet too! Happy Holiday!
Thanks very much for your reply, much appreciated! Was ready to cancel! We are going on the Easter 2010 cruise also due to my job in a school have to go at this time, flying to Barbados for the Carabbean cruise, so could see you there!
I seem to remember you needed head phones to "listen" to the big screen in the daytime.There were lots of "quiet areas" on this ship,try the rear of the ship it's a lovely experience.we have been on this ship a few times food service etc --wonderful.
