Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
We were in love with the trip in Europe on Voyager with great ports and the excitement of Broadway class shows most nights. And thanks to our cruise director Mercedes. Asia was different in almost every way and we felt let down and even the ports of Singapore and Port Kelang, Georgetown and Phuket didn't help as we were disappointed in them too. The passengers in each three continents were different too.
So, although the entertainment in La Scala theatre was good (plus Ice Show) this time ....it was all the other little things.
I guess no ports doesn't help and the ship is going in for refurbishment but even our cabin didn't have the customary towel art. Food was usual meaning average good but no bands playing here and there much. We arrived at High Notes one evening about 8, just in time but they went off and weren't due back until 10pm.
Comparing that More too Splendour of the Seas (70000T) out of Venice, and you come to the conclusion that smaller is better with the same food maybe but better shops , entertainment (except for that 1st broadway show) and the feeling of a friendlier ship.
Still a RCI fan but changing to 70-80000 tonnes and have a place for ships like Ocean Princess which we have booked. Less
Ok normal interior cabin but with the bonus of window over the indoor promenade. A little roomier.
A Good First Experience at Cru...
Bogan ship for bogan people
Good value for the price paid ...
Tired ship, not so great staff...
