We left sydney end of march on cruise to Singapore..this was our first cruise. The ship was looking dated...we had a balcony cabin and was disappointed that it was relatively small..just enough space for my wife and I to sit together on it. Although the cabins were comfortable and of adequate size. The cabin crew were very good. The food was very good and the catering staff were exceptionally good. I would recommend eating in the restaurants rather than the self service..where the food appeared fresher and better quality. The biggest disappointment was the entertainment..it was generally abysmal ! Most of the shows were poor and we walked out of them as did others! The comedians were shockingly bad..the singers were very dated and the magic show consisted of two card tricks stretched out over 45 mins. Any of the amateur acts you see on tv talent shows would be better than most provided on this cruise. The only exception being Nathan .. Who was very good! Most were an insult to our intelligence! The soft drinks package was a waste of money.. The drinks were generally sickly full of syrup. We thought we could get latte coffes etc with this.. But needed to buy a coffee package for these! We could even get bottled water free under the soft drinks package! And the mock tails were inflexible.. When we ask them to make a variation on one of them.. Adding a combination of the two mock tails..they refused!! There was insufficient lectures from specialists about places and areas we visited or passed on our cruise.. So another let down. But thank goodness the weather was excellent.. Otherwise we would of left the ship at the first port if call! Get your act together.. Or we will never cruise with you again!  

Dated ship , food good but entertainment appalling!
