We really enjoyed our cruise up to Cairns and found the crew to be very pleasant and attentive paricularly our cabin attendant Wilfred.
We were disappointed in the choice and quality of the food in the Eidelweiss dining room in that most of the food was very spicy or contained various herbs. This made choosing a plain meal very difficult. Many people have digestive problems and prefer a choice of a bland meal. I was very please to see and chose prawns as a main course twice during the trip and was amazed to get 4 prawns the first time and 1 larger prawn the second time. I would classify these meals as entrees not main courses. Our waiters at table 55, Maricel and Anoop were great fun and very tuned in to our needs.
We loved the Solarium pool and were very pleased to see that children were not permitted to use the pool/lounges on this ship unlike our trip last year on the Radiance where children were a problem in the adults only pool.
The Park Cafe in the Solarium provided a quick and easy snack.
We loved our cabin and verandah but did miss the cruise information on the TV re position, course, weather info and map showing where we were and had been which most modern ships have.
Embarkation procedures at Circular Quay were much improved from 14 months ago when we had to stand in the hot summer sun for hours.
We will travel again on Rhapsody!!
