Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Neptune Deluxe Verandah Suite

Took the South Pacific cruise out of Sydney, and were certainly not impressed with the ship. The Neptune suite was very nice (apart from creaking ceiling panels), was well appointed and maintained.

The downsides of the cruise were:

- a lack of shade on the rear of the Lido deck which resulted in a lot of folk having to either sit in the sun or move down to the less interesting lower decks.

Cabin Review

Neptune Deluxe Verandah Suite

Cabin SA

The suite was well appointed and in good condition with little signs of wear and tear. However in our case the added cost was not worth it, especially as the suite had a creaking ceiling which no one could be bothered fixing....it should not be necessary to have to use earplugs to get a good nights sleep. The room service staff did do an excellent job.
