41 Years in the Waiting, So Happy I Made It!
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
The Windjammer/Island Grille is definitely too small to be the 'only' place on a day in port to get breakfast before your excursion. I loved eating in the dining room but this experienced required over an hour to complete so was only good on sea days or late docking.
The ship is enormous, definitely needs sprucing up it's rusty, musty and tired.
The sea days on the Tasman Sea may have been a challenge for people with motion sickness since the captain indicated the swells were 12 metres/36 feet for much of those 2 days. Made the ship much more spacious for me to roam :). Those days there were sea sick bags fastened to every staircase so it shouldn't have been a problem for anyone to help themselves rather than wait hours to get them delivered, that shows a lack of caring by the wife who's hubby was sick not the staff.
Dining room food was interesting well prepared and presented. I had lamb cooked 3 different ways and each was so delicious! I was adventuresome and had kangaroo and would definitely order it again.
The excursions were mostly better than expected, the ones that weren't were because of delays getting on buses resulting in being short changed on stops we were supposed to make because of the tight time schedules.
All in all, FANTASTIC trip. Met delightful people from all over the world, saw things I'll never see elsewhere again.
Thanks Royal Caribbean for fond memories of my 4 cruises with you. Less
Cabin review: 8566
Cabin and balcony were I believe the smallest I've ever had especially the balcony, couldn't fit more than 2 people on it at one time. Noel kept it ship shape and left us adorable towel critters each night. Deck 8 is a great level to have a cabin on, wouldn't have wanted to be any lower.
Bogan ship for bogan people
Good value for the price paid ...
All in all
Tired ship, not so great staff...
