We went on the Australian Top End Cruise out of our home port of Fremantle - going from our own port was a novelty and boarding of the ship was reasonably painless.

The cruise was supposed to go to Bali as its first stop which we were looking forward to but for security reasons the cruise line decided to skip this port and instead have an extra night in (the not very exciting ) Darwin. This made the first part of the cruise a very long 7 nights at sea with very little entertainment to soften the blow. Now I understand that security is the number 1 concern of all tourism organisations at the moment so no issue there - but the way the cruise company basically skipped over any complaints that their customers had about missing out on a part of a vacation really shows their true colours.

Because they could not pick up the entertainers booked from Bali - entertainment suffered badly - because they could not pick up the major food and drink supplies from Bali then food and drink suffered with the bars running out of certain types of drinks etc and the main restaurants getting very boring and basic. Finally as there was supposed to be a swap of staff in Bali service also suffered (although only slightly).
