Sail Date: Feb 2015
Cabin: Balcony, sheltered

We embarked in Hong Kong for the leg to Australia. Our first problem was our cabin which had creaky floors before we even set sail so we asked to be changed. We took the third cabin on offer. We had inadvertently booked a sheltered balcony. What a mistake.... no view when sitting down and furnished with two rusty and chipped chairs and a tiny rusty table.


We did find the Britannia dining room very nice. We found the food to be very varied and well cooked and we were lucky to have interesting and friendly dining companions. So no complaints there. BUT, the Kings Court was another matter. Shabby furniture, chipped tables and stained chairs and a poor selection of food compared to other ships, notably the Oceania cruise line. We mostly had salads in this area as the hot food looked uninviting. The Queens room for tea was lovely, with delicious food.

Cabin Review

Balcony, sheltered

I inadvertently booked a sheltered balcony. A huge mistake. No view on sitting down and furnished with chipped and rusty chairs and table. It was like sitting in an industrial compartment. We hardly used it. Bathroom had chipped and cracked tiles. It all needs a complete overhaul. A very small TV. Very old fashioned.
