I was initially hesitant at booking a cruise on a ship noted for young families. I can honestly say it was one of the best cruises I have ever done. The children were well controlled until the last night when they started to run about but on the whole they were well mannered and quiet. The ship was fantastic. We were booked into a Balcony Stateroom but were upgraded to an Ocean Suite on Deck 6 in 6174. The crew were happy and would talk to everyone. We spent breakfast and dinner in the Pharoe's Palace Restaurant and had a turkey roll and fruit for lunch at the Lido Restaurant. The bread rolls at lunch and dinner were moreish and the endless supply of pizza, lemonade and ice cream 24/7 a nice touch. The only negative I have is that although free tea, coffee and hot chocolate were available 24/7, the ship had no peppermint or herbal tea and the cakes had to be purchased outside dining hours. The evening shows were first rate with a cast of 8 who could sing and dance and on the magic night show, the girls contorted to fit inside the small boxes and assisted with lead magician with the act. The stage sets could have been used in a professional play at a major theater and included use of laser lights, pyrotechnics and even scented air only added to the night, . Our stateroom developed a small leak on the carpet. Guest Services had blowers drying the carpet after repairs had been effected. We later received a gift basket containing fruit, cheese and a bottle of wine for any inconvenience. We said we were only reporting and not complaining. The staff were excellent and it was no trouble to search for the Sydney Shute Shield Rugby Union scores for us. While on our way back on the last day an orange object was sighted so the ship slowed and changed course to investigate. The captain keep all passengers and crew informed what was happening and after explained what they had spotted, and orange fender from a fishing boat. I would recommend the ship and cruise again and am currently looking at booking a similar cruise later in the year. WELL DONE TO THE SHIP'S CREW AND .A BIG THANK YOU FROM US. Read Less
