Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Balcony
A special afternoon tea was one of the hits of the cruise
Beautiful ice carvings and treats from heaven were presented in a beautiful way in the britania resturant  Photo shows about  one fifth the size of the display
Inside one of the jap army tunnel systems ,Well made but very dark .Camera flash lights up tunnel architecture as well as the stud in front You may be able to see power wiring on floor
This tunnel system could be marketed to be a top tour destination
At War Mueseum   This is a jap light amphibious tank ww2
It is a pity that it is rusting away being out in the weather no covers or preventive maintence
Cunard really provides excellent lecturers on many topics
The best lecturer was Dr John McMichan from the Mayo 
Institute who gave several lectures on skin cancer/heart attacks/ostio  arthritus and vitamins supplements myths and facts
Dining in the Britannia Restaurant was very good.We sat at a table for 6 and cunard matched us very well to our other table guests.Formal evening we were required to wear a tux and informal nights a suit or at least a tie and jacket .
Waiters were great and food excellent

Boarded Brisbane 24th Feb at Grain Terminal

!st port of call Cairns Went ashore in large catamaran excellent transport compared to ships tenders

2nd port of call Rabaul

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BE

Clean visually good plenty of hanging places with plenty of clothes hangers

Bed and pillows excellent (downfall only a feather dooner which causes overheating to body at night,What is needed are top sheets and light weight blankets Ships tap water is good for drinking no need for bottled water

Tv good but poor selection of movies in English .Bathroom a bit tight only one person comfortable at a time

Cabin staff excellent in every way

The ship is kept in immaculate condition

Port Reviews

Cairns

Have seen all tourist venues previously

Manila

Used ships bus to go into town to shopping centre(ROBERTSONS) good store

Hong Kong

Dis embarking Was horrific Mix up in ports/luggage due to ships company releasing luggage out of sync with passenger dis embarking causing massive problems

Every passenger were verbally expressing their anger at the way it was handled

Brisbane
