Ditto...ditto...ditto to those reviews posted by 'ancientcoins' and 'Dutch_Oz' of our same 14-night cruise ex/return Sydney to South Pacific/Fiji on Nov. 24th. (in fact 'Dutch_Oz' were participants in our on-board 'meet-n-greet' in the Skywalker's Lounge - hi guys).

We had no complaints (whinges) whatsoever - perhaps the only comment as expressed by many other cruisers re the openness of the balconies as viewed from decks above. We occupied a mini-suite on Dolphin deck 9 and yes, the lack of privacy from above created a constant awareness (not that we basked in the lounges in our birthday suits!). But all of us have our privacy preferences, which we felt was compromised by this issue. Esp. when paying the extra for this room type.

But, then again, that's the ship's design and we aint gunna change it!

Mini-Suite with Balcony

Cabin MA

Great layout & lighting, real comfy bed & pillows, very versatile and Mrs just loved the lounge with her own TV.
