Arrived from Gold Coast by Plane and took the Airport Train to Circular Key. Went to the Overseas Passenger terminal arriving several hours early and checked in without fuss. The whole process took about an hour. Went to the Windjammer Bistro for lunch and baggage went to the room, no problems.
We left Sydney at an amazing time when there was the 100th year Naval celebrations and Sydney Harbour was full of People, boats and Naval ships. Prince Harry was there doing a naval review. We left Sydney at 4.15 pm we had to leave before the fireworks as the harbour would have been full of boats.
Met our cabin steward and unpacked.
Then the Party started and went for 7 days. Bands played from 10 am to 2.30 am every day. Shows in the Broadways Melodies Theatre on every night included acts such as John Paul Young, Leo Sayer, Marcia Hines, Temptations, The Supremes, The Rocky Horror,and the Village People. The boat was full mainly with baby boomers and families the best people who really enjoyed the music.
Food was good. I ate mainly in the Windjammer Bistro for breakfast and lunch. Dinner, i ate in the Edelweiss Restaurant service was great and food was Ok, bit hit and miss. This was our 15th cruise from 2 to 6 star ships and would rate as one of the best value cruises done yet. Loved every minute and aspect of this cruise, Ship was great.
Wi Fi was expensive 66 cents a minute and alcohol was expensive at $7.00 USD. Duty free shopping on board ship was good value.
