Awesome experience

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
We have three children, 4, 8 and 11. They had fun with all the activities on board, mainly the water park and pools but enjoyed their time in camp carnival. But it wasn't all about the kids. My husband and myself had so much fun in the Lido deck having a drink or two, or spa or swim. The barman "Widga" was spot on and always happy to see us. At night we were able to eat with our family then go out and enjoy whatever we were in the mood to do. From dancing and singing to watching a show with or without the family. With so much to do, it was hard to go to bed early. However it was so nice to go to the room at the end of the day to be greeted by our fun and cheeky room steward "Putu" who could not do enough for us. Our rooms were like classy motel rooms and were more then appropriate for our family.

The only thing that made me cross was the people that winged about silly things like a plate left at the end of their table. It was evident to see just how hard all the More staff were working to please us and most of the time they were laughing and really enjoying their job.

If all cruises are like this one, I will be going a lot more often. With or without the kids. Just have to enjoy yourself because in the end, it's what you make of it! Less

Cabin review: 8H7161

Great position, close to stairs and lift. No noise from pool and sports deck but close enough to grill and activities. Being in the middle of the ship, it was easy to get to from all areas. Great size with latch on door to balcony so kids didn't wonder. Bathroom adequate size. Not many drawers for clothes but plenty space to hang clothes and put cases away. Beds were very comfy thanks to Putu our steward.

Port and Shore Excursions

Great to see the aquarium was so well looked after. The staff in the cafe were ate at on the esplanade were very rude and not very welcoming. The beach was nice and the shuttle bus system was great to see a little of the island.
