After reading a few bad reviews I wasn't expecting much however I was wrong. We had a great time. I also spoke to more than a dozen similar couples and they were also having a great time. I only saw one winger. The ship has a little exterior wear and tear (as you would expect with a twenty year old ship), but the interior was very attractive 98% perfect. Our cabin was great, the food was pretty ...

First cruise. Not too bad, but not outstanding. The absolute highlight onboard is the staff. All staff are extremely hard working, polite and professional. This is from the cleaners to the entertainers. People like the cruise director are fun and don't mind being silly to get a laugh from passengers. Being our first cruise, we were a little overwhelmed on boarding and there are no clear ...

Ship is big 4900 guests. So it doesn’t move much in moderate sea. Internally well appointed. Externally it is showing signs of aging. Balcony Cabins are small but effectively designed. First ship with a decent sized bathroom and a shower that I could actually move in. Second leg cabin balcony was unusable peeling paint everywhere flakes landing in morning coffee and drying clothes. The ship offers ...

This Australian vacation was planned as a break from the gloomy winter in Olympia WA in the USA. We began our cruise in Brisbane Australia headed for a couple small islands in the South Pacific. First two days at sea; This ship is showing its age. It feels very closed in compared with newer ships. The food selection and quality is below par. The servers are friendly and welcoming. I have ...

This was my seventh cruise with Royal Caribbean (Second on Quantum) and I have cruised with three other lines so I could claim to be a seasoned cruiser to a degree. First the good: Great friendly cabin and waiter staff (with one exception). Junell and Eugene in the main dining room were excellent while supervisor Rolston was very competent. Edgar looked after our room very ...

The good: We lucked out with the calmest seas in Feb cyclone season. RC shore visits in Noumea, Mystery and Port Vila. Expensive but well run. The insanely blue water of Mystery island. The beauty of New Caledonia and Vanuatu itself. Staring at the ocean ( an ocean view is a MUST!! ) Realising just how BIG the ocean really is. Well appointed and liveable room. Gym ...

I had a great time on this cruise, I was a solo traveller and everyone was really nice and friendly. I'd recommend the solo traveller meet up held on the first few nights. A few things I noticed tho. The Evian water package that cost me AUD$40 (pre cruise discount) turned out to be cheap supermarket water that would cost AUD$10, see pic. There weren't water fountains to fill up water ...

We have cruised other Carnival ships, but nothing as bad as this. Toilet stopped working for several days. Public areas smelled of sewerage. My GoPro was stolen, and when I reported it security stripped our room (mind you this was around midnight as well). My wife broke her finger on a shore excursion, and we caught both COVID and Influenza A. Our last meal in cabin isolation was a single piece ...

Chose this cruise to enjoy with first time cruising friends. Balcony room (4D) cabin port side aft. Extras Paid for 1, Wifi package 7 days. Was good enough and dropped out now and then. Should be free. 2, Drinks package. Recommended as drinks could have got costly. Sometimes staff seem to be on a go slow instruction and avoid eye contact and take a long time to serve. 3, Noumea - ...

1. bathtub is mouldy, toilet smells like dirty public toilet. Made compliants but no improvement. 2. Everything on the ship aren’t being maintained and very dated, e.g. Pantry water tab (to wash hands) not working, not just one of them but every single one. 3. Staff need a lot more training, the worst customer service I have ever experienced on a cruise ship. E.g. in the Pantry, one of the ...
