Value for money

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Honolulu
we enjoyed this cruise and we made friends with a good crowd which helped to make it enjoyable if we had been alone it may have been a bit disappointing especially the first week when everything seemed to finish early or every where we seemed to go to see a band we managed to get there when they were on a 15 min break with no music to fill in at least if the band isn't on we should have good music.The Schooner Bar is great but gets very full and Derek works very hard most nights.
The other bands on the ships could take a lesson from him.
The first ball was very disappointing we went after 2nd sitting dinner ,the band played a waltz followed by wait for it a polka in fact when this cleared the dance floor they played another polka at which one couple did venture to dance.They then played a Beatles medley lo and behold the dance floor was full several numbers later and everyone having fun the band said good night I complained to one of the band members and he agreed they should More keep on playing whilst people are dancing especially as it wasn't even 11pm.Never mind we went to the centrum music there oh no they had gone on 15 min break!!
The cruise ,food ,staff all great just need to get the music and entertainment a bit organised.
The RC dancers and singers all great and they do work hard but perhaps could be rosters so there are always some of them to keep dancing going.The 2nd and 3rd weeks were a lot livelier and when we went to the disco had a good time cos there was a few of us to request music.
Sitting Round the pool got to be repetitive when they promoted the signature restaurants neatly every day.
Bar staff are all very good and the waiters are great enjoyed the waiters singing in the dining room.
Overall a good cruise Less

Cabin review: N2621 Interior Stateroom

2621 small but compact inside cabin.we were fine with the cabin for the price.We took everything we needed and stayed out all day. The ship creaks a bit at night.The bed is comfy and I didn't hear any noise from outside or next door cabins
