I thought I would give travelling via cruise ship a try after a recommendation from a work colleague and the fact I was taking my son and partner with me. Normally I prefer to fly to a destination or several destinations and spend ... Read more

Firstly, the ship's interior was far too cold. Cruising the south Pacific, the ambient temperature was around 28-30 C most days, but the air conditioning in the public rooms and cabins was set at around 17 C. Everyone was complaining about ... Read more

The cabin we were assigned was on the 8th floor right below the buffet dining area and access to the pool area. At 3am the food trollies would roll over the tiles, and then the noise would start. There would have been 75% children on board ... Read more

Note, it was rumoured that this ship does not issue feedback forms to anyone who raises anything with the guest services staff in order to inflate its client feedback to HO. Well, this may explain the safety issues. Even in calm waters ... Read more

Arrived on our boat and went to our room at the back of the ship and couldn't believe the size of our room and the huge 6 metre balcony. Looked for 1 of our suitcases that was not at the door so I asked the staff were it was cause it had ... Read more
