The reason for 4 starts is their web site, phone customer service and choice air are the worst
The cruise gets 5+ stars. How can they both have the same management?
Boarding in Sydney OK. And it just went uphill from there!! Our cabin was ready. Cabin staff on greeting and throughout trip over the top! Anticipated our every need!! Buffet was OK, though crowded as can be expected on embarkation day. Throughout cruise buffet was OK to good taste wise and variety wise. How much can you change a buffet over 12 days? Bags arrived very promptly. Sail away from SYD awesome, bridge behind us, opera house off to the right. This cruise was blessed with excellent weather the majority time Tas Sea bit rough, little rain afternoon in Wellington, few brief squalls part of last sea day. The fjords spectacular with 100% sun AMAZING! (Some other ships had to bypass ports or dock in a storm).
Blu was amazing!! I am a very fussy particular eater with dietary requirements. They satisfied me every day, even when I might be the only one having halibut. Excellently prepared to my liking - had a second portion one night. Can u say stuffed? They really go the extra mile. ENTIRE staff on ship smiles, helpful, doing more than one could ask. It's amazing what happens when you empower staff. The ship was spotless.
Entertainment was fair, but that's subjective. Some was not my style. Others fair to poor, and yet two shows outstanding. Did not take any ship excursions. AKL disembarkation a piece of cake. Quick and hassle free!! Would I sail 'em again. You Bet!! Book thru a T/A.
Great, roomy and nice bathroom. Cabin, coupled with Blu makes Aqua choice a no brainer
