A Visit to Down Under
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
Some improvements can always be made and the main one would be for the shops onboard to carry more of the ordinary souvenirs that are common to port visits and the respective countries, versus the high-end leather, jewelry and watch shops that occupy a lot of space, yet very few passengers shopped in them. Another improvement would be to ensure more than one point of egress for port calls. Some ports included only one gangway for passengers, crew and supplies which caused a long back up when returning from excursions.
Passengers were required to wait in line while supplies were moved up the gangway.
All in all, the cruise was excellent and we recommend it to More anyone who wants to take in both countries, and an added bonus was a stop in Tasmania.
One really nice feature on this ship is the "No Smoking" policy in pubic areas. It was so nice to roam throughout the ship and not have to smell smoke from cigarettes and cigars. Kudos to Royal Caribbean for promoting the no smoking. Less
Cabin review: D1 Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Aft, balcony cabin with plenty of room. The largest stateroom we have had of any cruise line. It was described as a Superior Oceanview Balcony and we intentionally picked an aft location for privacy, the ability to keep our balcony door open, and to keep away from any smokers.Read All Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (D1) Reviews >>
