Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2016

Our embarkation was smooth, our room looked great, very roomy, heaps of storage. Problems started when we went to try to sleep.

My side of the bed was bone shaking!! I complained to our cabin steward and also the reception and we were moved to a quieter room.

We did not book any of the shore excursions on the ship (expensive), instead booking one excursion through trip advisor on Alotau. There were 44 people from the ship in total that had booked this full day excursion for $195 each. It was an interesting experience, we went to the young woman's village and her mother had made us lunch, we watched the villagers do some dancing, we were shown sago Palms and there many uses in the village. We were shown a smoking room where her uncle smoked coconuts to make copra. All in all an interesting day.

Cabin Review

Cabin ie

Cabin 5137 had a bone shaking rattle that vibrated through my whole body while in bed trying to sleep... We complained and then were moved to 5028. A much better cabin for sleeping!
