14 Night Christmas/New Year Australia to New Zealand Cruise

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

Our stateroom had ample room for 2 adults and a child. Had sufficient storage space for suitcases under bed and drawers in the bed. Our room was serviced twice a day and was always spotless and loved the towel creations and chocolates on the bed each evening. All staff including housekeeping, bar staff, dining room staff, front desk, recreation staff and crew always had a smile and greeted us. They would go out of their way to accommodate you and always willing to serve and make you happy.

There were so many activities to do each day and the entertainment and the shows were top class, I would have paid to see the Singers and Dancers. Our 9 year old daughter had a great holiday and swore before we went on the cruise that she will not go to kids club (Club HAL) so we took her up there to have a look and the staff were so friendly that she decided to stay and continued going to Club HAL for the remainder of the cruise.

The food on the ship was excellent. We dined in the More Vista Dining Room for 9 of the nights and The Pinnacle Grill the other 5 nights and the food in the Pinnacle grill is amazing and the service was impecable. Our waiter and Beverage waiter were friendly,always went out of their way to make you happy and the service and food was fantastic, as was the variety.

The facilities/bars/restaurants/spa/recreational facilities on board the ship were extremely clean, well staffed and always friendly staff. There are so many bars and things to do we did'nt get to go to all of them.

The highlight of our trip was the 6.30pm Cocktail Sampler each evening at the Atrium Bar where we were served 4 cocktails each night by an extremely friendly and talented bar man. It was at the Atrium bar we made most of our new log life friends who we will keep in touch with.

We did not do many shore excursions as we did our own thing most days but the ship does offer great excursions.

Don't take a travel iron, as your luggage does go through an xray and they do confiscate it until the end of the cruise.

This is definitely not my last cruise and have already started saving for the next one. Less
