Great value, great crew, great fun.

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

Other reviewers have done the whole thing to death. Most ratings merely indicate that everyone has their own opinions about almost everything.

Apart from the almost complete lack of hand hygiene around the ship, it would be almost impossible to be critical.

Good cabin away from passenger noise of the ship but some annoying vibrations from the propellers when underway, even from deck eight. Lots of little rattles from the ceiling and the safe door but these were soon fixed with cardboard wedges. No passing noise in the passageway, no bumps in the night, plenty of room. Great for lift and deck 9 access. Fantastic views along the wake and when in port from the 8th deck vantage point. Take an electrical power board, the cabin is very short on electrical outlets. Some say that technically this is the worst cabin on the ship to experience movement and disturbance in rough weather but we found everything fine, even in the gales experienced on days seven and eight, the More stabilisers seemed effective.

We were concerned about the kids but found they helped the cruise in adding a cheerfulness aspect across a passenger profile of grey haired 'oldies'.

Everyone we came into contact with was first-class, cabins, dining, customer service, bars and shop staff were always unstinting in their efforts to please. It is probably true to say that the cabin and table staff are better than their management in overcoming little issues without drama.

We cruise to relax and the ports were not important. Suva and Port Denarau were Fijian styled scruffy/ boring but proved a break fro the ship, Mystery Island and Isle Of Pines were great fun with the tendering working fine, Noumea was interesting.

We will be staying with Carnival. Less
