The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
The Bad No irons provided (they say for safety reasons)and no ironing room where one could go to put the creases in the right place. Stay away from the "slots" in the casino. I think they have had the scewdriver to them. I know that this would be hard implement but there needs to be a way of moving people on when they have finished dining in the Winjammer as a lot of selfish people linger on after they have eaten. This area is very popular and can become quite conjested. Another annoying thing was the contiual breaking down of one and sometimes two of the forward lifts. There is only three forward lifts rising up to the Windjammer so do the maths. It was quite annoying at times.
The Ugly When you book the cruise there is no mention that the ship stops in 3 working ports which require the use of shuttle buses at rip off prices. Use public buses wherever you can at a fraction of the cost. All excursions on board are over the top. Do some research on line and you will save heaps. Just remember though, if you get back late the ship will leave without you unless it is a ship's (Ned Kelly type) tour. Do not use the ship's ATM or Purser's money change. It also is a rip off. And how ugly does this one get. When you draw cash to "loose" in the casino there is a 3% surcharge.
To sum up. We made some great freinds and had a ball.Would we go on the Rhapsody again? Absolutely. We are hooked on cruising. If by chance any of the great people we met read this. A special hello to Jim & Zoe, Grant & Jenny, Dallas & Jane and too many more to mention. Cheers Sailor Dave Less
