Need to step it up for the Aussie's
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
The ports were a joke taken to a place in Brisbane 30 mins drive from the city, when we were told it was in Hamilton,3 hours in to get off in Cairns(very rough water lots o people sick on the tenders) and then we were another 25mins from Cairns as we docked at honored Knob,what a joke.We were left standing in the blazing sun 38deg waiting for a tender fro 45mins at Exmouth as they were only running 2 tenders. The maps they gave us were so old they even had average building on itin Cairns which has not been there for about 10-12years, when we told them at the shore ex office they told us they did not know as they had not been there before which was another lie as they did Cairns in Nov 2008.All we were told all the time was that everyting was done in Miami.The staff on board should have the that to fix issues on the package all i can say is that we Assies expect better than this. The ship ran out of english breakfast tea bags,ice cream, lemonade,no pinapple or tropical juice, and v8,just to offer apple or orange on a so called 5 star ship is not good enough.
The guest entertainers were very good ,but the dancers and singers on the ship were the worst we have ever seen,and only did 3 shows in 17 nights (thank goodness).
All in all we had a great holiday,great weather and very calm seas so this helped to make it a good holiday, but would Never recommend this ship to anyone give me Sapphire Princess any day she is 5 star luxury all the way. Less
