We researched a lot! as this was to be our first cruise, embarkation was better than expected, friendly staff, our cabin was on VIsta Deck (8) very nice, clean and the cabin attendants were great. Dining was good, many choices of venue, although we used the buffet on top deck mostly, food was plentiful and varied, the entertainment was wonderful and we went every night. We loved the hot glass shows too, the presenters were very open to questions and took the time to fully explain. We booked excursions through the ship, very good except for the bus on one trip, a little expensive but enjoyable. Arriving back in Sydney was stress free, collected bags and was on our way. So happy with this trip we have booked on another in February, flying to NZ this time, and catching up with the Solstice from Auckland to Sydney via Hobart. Hope to see just as many happy faces again.
Very nice, space OK, one small point, the curtains were in need of replacement, but otherwise, all good, plenty of hot water in the bathroom.
