In Short; Not likely to use this carrier in future.

Where to Start for the cruise Oosterdam South Pacific Cruise 02/01/2015. To Those who read this & this was their first cruise I am very pleased you had a great time and were treated well. Previous cruises 4 and Yes were comparing due to cost & promotions attached to this cruise line high expectations for this & very very disappointed. Room was ok as all carrier are similar, Room staff we had was great they did as much as required to make this accommodation enjoyable & did their job very well, Activities non existent or very lack of unless you only wanted to exercise or into beauty treatments, Staff (except the room attendants) need re-training as courtesy or lack of, help always asking for some service of some type but to no avail, I should also mention this would apply to 90% of the staff not all. maybe I am just like to complain but when you have previous cruised you would normally expect at lease the same service regardless of the carrier.

Also the small things you experience make the cruise more enjoyable. The ship easy to navigate through, set out pretty well, Food, out of all meals which were tasteless, below average, 3 days before end of cruise running out of simple items always told "Sorry Sir we have run out of that", Beverages very average catering for all countries except Australian tastes. Port Excursions for those who took part enjoyable. Entertainment Very Average have seen high school entertainment of higher standard.

maybe a C.D. with a little more attitude for pleasing All passengers.
