I chose the four night East Coast Discovery cruise to welcome CMV's Vasco Da Gama to Australia. I was not disappointed. Long a fan of Astor and Columbus for the last couple of years Vasco Da Gama was a test. Sadly the weather turned nasty on Bass Strait and our planned stop at Burnie was cancelled. We stopped for most of the 2nd day at sea at Eden instead. The Capt. had advised of big seas and very strong winds on Bass Strait. No complaints from anyone. Day 3 was however a heavy sea day as we sailed towards Melbourne. The ships stabilizers were working full force and life indoors continued as planned, dining rooms were full of seasoned mariners breakfast lunch & dinner and the food for the whole trip was surprisingly good (compared to what P&O used to dish out on the same ship). Circumstances (back at home) changed for me however and sadly I had to leave the ship in Melbourne to fly home. I was not on the ship for the controlled power black-out off the coast at Port Adelaide on Friday 6th Dec.. Media beat ups of this so-called "disaster" were sad to read. For CMV safety comes first obviously The ship is 26 yrs old and as such obviously will have occasional issues. I could not fault CMV or the Vasco Da Gama for the time I was onboard and look forward to a longer trip in the near future. Read Less
