As retirees this was our first time on this cruise liner. We found the ship to be out dated and looks tired and need of refurshment. Our cabin on the fourth deck extremely compact, AC noisy safe not working and u need to step into cabin to dry yourself as ensuite so small ( if u are really tall or very fat good luck!) we are not fat but my husband tall! Card to get into door had to be attended too 11times! Entertainment was cheesy and boring and extremely loud. If u want to do nursing home and rehab activity then u will be in your element! Do not use laundry service on ship if you value your clothes ours were not clean and they returned discoloured and out of shape! Apart from floating in a human soup pool you can lay on the deck with all the other loud mouth embarrassing obese bogans calling out "Aussie Aussie " at every chance! All for patriotism but really? Then when you are bored with that go up and feed yourself at the all you can eat restaurant with the pungent smell from the working gallery wafting of rotting garbage! Food was so ordinary and wine was so expensive $40 - $50 a bottle you would drink sea water instead! Not Enough chairs to sit, went up and down decks to look for a place to sit and trivia questions all about USA when 80% of passengers are Australian! When embarking to islands very expensive $100 and more to do tours and not worth it! On a positive note staff were very good and attentive. If you love to over eat and spend a fortune on getting drink into you and spend your day recovering for the next round then go for it! Not a cruise we would recommend, too long, very ordinary and limited bang for your buck!

Never Again; Very Disappointed! Think very carefully is this for me?
