Never cruised before - befroehand I expected moderate standard and poor passenger behaviour - had a great time, crew was amazing and the food was excellent overall.

Impressed with stress on hygene and extent of entertainments available. Not really a show-goer but enjoyed the big band/orchestra, the diverse musical entertainment, Lazlo's classical guitar playing, the Blue Avenue Band were great but as a 'would be trumpet player' I consider they would benefit from a sax and trumpet as well (?) but they might disagree?

Dining service staff were amazing, great stateroom attendant - the towel folding is incredible, great bar staff although I didnt use it very much.

The ship is fantastic for its size and the Windjammer Cafe at lunchtime is an experience - despite the number of people there is always an amazing diversity of food and never any delay in supply.

Never a dull moment - Captain was great and as was Bobby the Cruise Director (he must have done all More this stuff many times before)- the Trivia constests were a favourite - did well with a fews wins - key rings, cap, umbrella and travel bag all with the Royal Caribbean logo - even a few to spare.

Only went on some of the local explorere tours as we havent been in NZ before - good local drivers and guides - good local information and OK for the money but probably wouldnt suit the experienced NZ traveller - good for an introduction which is what they were pitched as. Less
