Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin: Aft-View Extended Balcony

We are just off the Tassie 4 day sailing.

I was warned about the unattractive decor but still got a shock. It is brutally, eye blisteringly ugly. I read a review that described it as having being decorated by a Colombian drug lord with no taste, unlimited funds and an obsession with Ancient Greece...that sums it up pretty well but it was still a shock. Think 1970's Las Vegas and you will get an idea. The public areas and hallways are dark and over decorated. Having said that there are some lovely areas, the promenade deck is open and gorgeous and the adults Serenity pool area is very nice indeed. The layout is quite inward looking not designed to take in the views. Having 3 pool areas is a bonus, there are quite a lot of round sheltered "pods" to lay around in and enjoy the passing waves. A great private escape on a busy ship.

We had an aft balcony cabin. It was smaller than I would have expected and the balcony was small compare to most aft balconies, the bathroom was quite a good size and the shower generous albeit with a curtain. The decor of the cabin was 1980's project home pink. Beds were comfortable. Our cabin steward was ok, did everything he had too, nowhere near as good as any of the others we have had in the past but not bad either, just acceptable.

Cabin Review

Aft-View Extended Balcony

Cabin 8M

Good quiet position, cabins above and below.

Smaller than expected cabin, bland pink decor, smaller than expected balcony. Older style fixtures quite well maintained, toilet seat needed to be replaced and the flush mechanism was a bit worn and fiddly. the deck us open to the elements, great if you are a sunbather, but looked over by the decks above so no privacy. There was some soot on the furniture and the white pain was flaking a bit. Overall the ship is in need of a facelift.
