Shall we NOT dance lounge!!!!!

Sail Date: March 2014
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
An 11 day cruise starting in Sydney cruising up the east coast as far as Cairns and return to Sydney. The stateroom was excellent, very clean, food choice in the Edelweiss restaurant was great and the various small cafés around the boat were great especially the 'park'. We never made the 'windjammer' as it was often crowded. Waiters at meal time were as usual outstanding. The shore excursions were good and reasonably priced. E.g. We did the lone pine koala park in Brisbane on our own and only saved about 10 dollars each. Tour worth doing was 'Green Island' in Cairns.

A great cruise worth doing the only issue was the entertainment - by far the poorest on this our fifth cruise. There seemed to be a push on trying to get everyone to stay in the Atrium for dancing which as a result was over crowded and limited bar staff whereas the 'shall we dance lounge' had often only 10 or so people in it - the shows were disappointing with only two RCL dancer shows - we suffered four More comedians and a hypnotist - with the highlight being a singing trio ' the Aussie boys'- really disappointing entertainment during the day as well and I am sorry to say a cruise (funeral) director who appeared to let (left) the junior members of his team get on with it. (Subjective I know) - a note to UK cruisers - the formal nights - we brought dinner suits and long dresses to Australia to discover Australians don't do formal so it was only the Brits and Americans dressed up.
