Short cruise experience

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

Just back from a short 5 night cruise Sydney, Brisbane, Sydney and 3 of us had junior suite 1076. We virtually walked straight onto the ship, maybe 15 minutes. Having done some research we headed straight to Park Cafe instead of the very packed buffet and what a great choice, it was quiet and had plenty of variety, fresh salads, roast meat rolls and many choices of wraps and other snack items, plus desert items.
Off to the cabin and it was very good in all aspects, nicer than the JS we previously had on Legend of the Seas, cabin man Arnold very obliging.
The ship is in very good condition and all facilities were clean and tidy and all staff we very good.
We found the entertainment very poor but many others seem to enjoy it all. To qualify this we have been on HAL, Celebrity, Cunnard, Star, Carnival and other RCL ships and all had superior entertainment. There were no speakers or presentations and no movies were shown in the main show room, instead they were in the very More small cinema.
We ate in the main dinning room and the food, service and ammenity were good to very good. We tried the buffet but was always crowded and food variety average, dog house which was interesting and always had our breakfast and snacks when peckish in the Park Cafe, its a great facility.
All in all a good short cruise on a nice ship. Less
