We wanted to visit New Zealand but not any particular place just a taste of it all and did we get that yes we did, a fabulous itinery and in a luxurious way. embarkation was stressful as everyone couldn't wait to get on but once on it was just very relaxed, for such a big ship it never felt crowded. We paid for our drinks package before we left home with gratuities but found that most people had already had one in their package and didn't pay gratuities so we felt a bit miffed about that as our holiday was in excess of our budget you have to have a drinks package as the drinks are very expensive and it would spoil the holiday if you were constantly worried about the cost. The tours were quite expensive for what you got but there was so much scenery e very day where you got to a destination for the day you didn't need them really unless you wanted nature tours which we didn't. It's a long way from England so if you choose to go choose celebrity but add on to your holiday and spend at least 5 weeks there to get the benefit.
