Not what we expected

Age 60s

I choose this cruise as the Splendor was in dry dock in Singapore before relocating to Australia and thought that the itinerary would suit my wife and myself . How wrong was I . Embarkation was a disaster . The check in people didn't open the desks for nearly 2 hrs after they were supposed to and then there was a stampede of people all trying to get on board at the same time . They should have ...

Be prepared to cough up a lot of extra money! Everything’s got an extra price on it. Photos are an unbelievable price! Average $20-30 each printed picture of about 5x7 or 8x10. And there are ALOT of pictures being taken- photographers are everywhere trying to pump this money making machine... whilst also talking you that you can’t take photos with your own phone of your family/child with the ...

We booked this cruise because it seemed an amazing deal, after booking I was really tentative about whether we'd enjoy it or not (our first time cruising) but I didnt need to worry too much! Everything was just so easy, we knew not to expect 5 stars but it was a pretty solid 3. Having a balcony made all the difference and we loved sitting out watching the waves (and dolphins!). The kids ...

This was a six night cruise to Tasmania from Sydney. Compared to the other 10 + cruises we have been on: Buffet food was very poor. The food choice seemed to include a lot of sloppy stuff with little variety. Not even any roast meat carvery. Luckily the salad bar was OK. Long lines at buffet and poorly organised food serving made it very frustrating. Dining room food was hit and miss. ...

This was our 3rd cruise. Once on Carnival Magic and once on Celebrity Reflection. Travelled with 2 adults and 3 teenagers in two balcony cabins. Also went with my sister's family and my parents (10 people in all). THIS IS THE BEST SHIP IF YOU HAVE KIDS! Embarking and disembarking was smooth and easy. The Ship The ship décor reminded me of Medieval Times. Not to everyone's taste but I ...

We choose this cruise as it appeared that it would have enough options to keep us and our teenagers (15 & 16) entertained. We were right. The teenagers immediately became part of the O2 Club and we barely saw them, other than for dinner, for the entire 8 days. The fabulous thing about the cruise is we were able to give them their freedom without the usual worries that come with them going to ...

We chose this cruise on recommendation by friends. The checking in process was easy and flowed very well. We were quickly settled in and the fun began. The staff were just excellent. The entertainment on board was super and we hardly saw our three boys except at breakfast and dinner. That's saying a lot cos without wifi they would always be generally bored and complain as all teenagers do! So not ...

If anything, this is definitely a fun boat. Lots of activities for everyone and a great energy. While the service is inconsistent it's generally positive. The process of getting on board was particularly patchy. The number of times I was ordered to produce my passport and green card prior to actually needing to was completely fun busting. Service at the bars vary. Some of the staff ...

This Cruise was booked so we could tick one off our Bucket List the "Melbourne Cup Carnival". What better way to travel in style to the Cup than by a Beautiful Big Luxurious Ship. My husband generally drives to our holiday destination, this time he was able to sit back and travel in style. We travelled to the port via a train journey and exited the train at Circular Quay where we were ...
