We chose it for the itinerary. We have done over 30 cruises but only two with Royal Caribbean in 1999 and 2001 which were excellent. Unfortunately this ship was very disappointing. We had just stepped on board in Fremantle and were bombarded by people trying to sell the different restaurants drink packages etc - they were really overpowering. We had anytime dining And really enjoyed the food and the company of different people every night . All the staff n the ship were excellent especially in the restaurant. Our cabin steward (Michael) was fantastic. We were told by a lot of people who had been on the ship in Sydney that the drink prices all increased when they got to Freemantle! We enjoyed all the trips which were well organised but really overpriced and going through Millford sounds was fantastic. The entertainment was the worst we have ever encountered on a ship apart from line excellent lady singer and an Irish comic. Some shows were more suitable for children. Entertainment during the day on sea days was pathetic. The lectures were on memory loss etc. It was like being in an old peoples home! Apart from all this we had a lovely holiday - but won't be going with Royal Caribbean again

Disappointed (from Yorkshire!)

Cabin Review

Cabin
Can't remember our room no! Our cabin was the same as most cruise lines. Very clean. Plenty of clean towels and sheets. But no little extras like shower caps, body lotions etc.
