Mmmmmm, needs a refit and that includes the staff!

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Asia
Embarkation: Brisbane
We had 13 nights which was certainly enough. Our only other cruise was with Cunard and the difference is startling. The pressure to buy drinks, especially by the pool, was at times insolent.

The food was standard British fare, plenty of potatoes, at least two different ways every meal, well that will fill you up. Chips everywhere.

On this note, Marco Pierre White why did you lend your name to this poor excuse for an exclusive restaurant on board? With a stairwell coming out in the middle, people strolling past, and food no better than the main restaurants I cannot see why he did it. Most cruise ships have a signature restaurant which you make a booking for and pay extra and which you are happy to pay for as the food and service is special Not so here. This one was free except for a dinner surcharge and as such gave no special food or presentation. Menu read well but the presentation and cooking was ordinary. Please Marco review your involvement.

The theatres More were small and the entertainment was constantly suffled around to fit people kn if an act was popular.

On a positive note the cabin, balcony, was excellent, great to have a bath and a good sized bathroom. Our cabin steward did his job well. Less

Cabin review: B260

Cabin was good sized although old fashioned decor. The sliding door to the balcony was better than one which opens out. Appreciated the large bathroom.
