A Great Ship
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
we caught a taxi to the port ,although our boarding pass said 9pm boarding we went there at 10.30 am and no problems ,we had to wait about 3/4 hr as my husband needed a wheel chair other than that boarding was very easy .Our cabin was great we had a balcony room on 9th deck quite spacious,the bed near the balcony door then the lounge ,they had curtains across the middle of the cabin so if my husband was asleep i could pull the curtains and put the light on .The food in the dining room was More excellent a lot better than our previous cruise on Rhapsody ,the variety was god and always hot ,the windjammer was very good but we did prefer the set up of the windjammer on Rhapsody .Our cabin steward was pretty ordinary all talk and no action ,but we learnt to ignore him and keep our do not disturb sign up otherwise he would just walk in ( mostly just to check the view from our balcony ,or use his computer .)We did not go to a lot of shows but what we saw were excellent .The main complaint was guest relations ,they were very unhelpfull.As has been mentioned we had a bad case of novovirus onboard the crew were amazing it was handled so well ,we were kept updated at all times 20 out of 10 for that .We did a day trip in Papeete (would never go there again )Auckland (wine tour ) and Bora Bora ,very happy with them all .All up we were very very happy with our cruise we will be back on the Radiance in March .
Leaving the ship was no problem very early but that i am sure was because it was maiden voyage . Less
