We chose this cruise as we have never been to WA and thought it would be a great way to see Perth, up to Broome and then the Margaret River region. This was our second cruise and we were pretty disappointed. Nothing went majorly wrong but everything was just average. The common areas and dinning have been refurbished but the cabin rooms haven't. They are still old and original style. Whilst there was plenty of variety in food it just tasted average. It was cold or too salty or just didn't taste nice. I lined up for 2hours to get a reservation in the Italian restaurant and it was a big let down. There was only two pasta options and the food was no better then the buffet. They had hyped it up so much, the same with the lady dragon restaurant. Other guests i spoke to felt the same.
The gym is great and very large surprisingly.
There are a lot of leaks on the boat and the toilets were blocked for half a day which was disgusting.
There is not a lot to do on the boat and we found we were very bored. Two of the ports we were due to visit were cancelled due to the swell. I understand the reason we couldn't go ashore but we were still extremely disappointed. It meant another boring day on the boat. I don't suggest getting off at Exmouth, there is nothing to look at. Unless you do the whale shark diving.
We had our 6year old with us. He loved kids club which was a relief as there wouldn't have been much else to keep him entertained.
If you are looking for a cruise that doesn't have exciting stops and you don't need much stimulation then this would suit you. I suggest going in summer so you can at least swim in the pool and sunbake.
Sufficient but old and tired looking.
