We joined the Cruise in Sydney and after an efficient embarkation we enjoyed lunch until our Stateroom was ready.
When we arrived at our Stateroom we were soon met by our room attendant, a young man who proved to be polite and efficient. We were right at the front of the ship and had great views through the large dormer windows.
Of course we soon began the exploration of the ship and found things nicely positioned and well signed.
We ate in the main dining room, early sitting, and enjoyed the company of 4 other couples. Each evening we were able to share the day's experiences.
New Zealand is wonderful and our visit included many locations we had not experienced before.
Of course the highlight was cruising Milford Sound.
Overall we had a great time and found the ship facilities and crew members to be first class. We have previously sailed Celebrity Cruises and my feel is that there was little difference between the two cruise lines = of course they are "related" so it was no surprise to see things done the same way.
