Rocky Start But All's Well That Ends Well
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
OK - so day 1 was not the best start to the holiday but we were determined to make the most of our first ever cruise. Pardon the pun but from that day on the rest of our trip was smooth sailing and we could not of asked for more. The food was great, especially in the restaurant. Our waiter Victor could not of been more helpful with our requests and our room attendent Joel couldn't do enough to help us out. We prepaid our tips but didn't hesitate giving these guys a bit more for the great service they provided.
For those considering a cruise with kids then wait no longer - the staff in the Nursery and Adventure Ocean were fantastic. We travelled with a 2 year old who was looked after fabulously by the Nursery staff and our 3.5 year could not wait for opening hours at Adventure Ocean - he had an absolute blast which left my wife and I a couple of hours each day to relax and unwind and take advantage of the great cocktails and cold beers the bar had to offer!!
There was plenty to do if you wanted to be entertained day and night and if you wanted to just relax there was plenty of places to do that as well. The islands were great and if I was to offer any advise it would be to book in tours early to avoid missing out. Oh and also bring along your own goggles and snorkels as the prices of these at the tour desk was a bit rich.
All in all a great time despite the issues on the first night. Less
Grand Suite cabin - plentry or room for our family of 4.
