Took an overseas guest on this four day cruise to Moreton Island Qld. She was apprehensive after a bad experience with a Regal cruise to Caribbean, so hoped it would be enjoyable and certainly was. So much entertainment, the crew worked hard to make sure we had fun. Only downside for me was the new Pantry which replaced the buffet, idea good but execution needs tweaking. Loved that all food was served to you and so no unclean hands in the food! One thing which I was surprised with was the size of the shower in our stateroom, far bigger than any of the Princess cruise ships we had been on, wonder why that ship could do a bigger shower but Princess ships (and we have been on a few) seem to have the pokey showers in all staterooms. Our friend loved the cruise, changed her idea of cruising, she couldnt get over how friendly and helpful all the crew were, she even scored a bottle of champagne for her positive comments to the crew!! Had a lovely day at Tangaluma Resorton on Moreton Island, warm sea, soft sand and lots of birds to see including pelicans, cruisers could sign up to feed the dolphins too. all in all a great time.

Fun Filled Four Days

Cabin Review

Cabin
Comfortable and clean. Would have liked a sliding door to the balcony as door opened outwards and very heavy. Our friend slept on the fold down settee (good quality mattress) which was against the balcony door, so when down it wasnt possible to get out onto the balcony.
Shower size great
