It was a new ship and it was a means of getting to Sinapore with out along flight. Faults, Standard of food improved when travel agents arrived. The slots or poker machines where used as a cash cow as the progressive jackpots were zeroed in the middle of my cruise. The cost of bottled wine and beer was excessive another company cash cow, when bottled wine is more than three times the Australian retail price it is a rip off It was a very nice ship with a very good crew apart from the aggressive Irish Pursar. The high speed internet failed after about three days and reverted to the normal email only as there was only one high speed connection for the whole ship. Port information is limited to the companies shore excursions and the ships library is a job lot of books with no organisation and nobody to control them. Conclusion, Only cruise on this ship if the price is right and there will be a lot of good deals when it starts to cruise from Sydney Australia. Bring your own Vegemite.

Faults,

Standard of food improved when travel agents arrived.

The slots or poker machines where used as a cash cow as the progressive jackpots were zeroed in the middle of my cruise.

It was a very nice ship with a very good crew apart from the aggressive Irish Pursar.

The high speed internet failed after about three days and reverted to the normal email only as there was only one high speed connection for the whole ship.

Conclusion,

Only cruise on this ship if the price is right and there will be a lot of good deals when it starts to cruise from Sydney Australia.

Bring your own Vegemite.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3166
Very good bed and ventilation as the AC really worked under high temperature condition, The ships water is of very high quality and there is no need to buy bottled water, when the sea temperature is high the cold water is warm, so put your drinking water in the cabin refrigerator if you are in the tropics.
