Overall positive experience. Traveled with a group of girlfriends. EMBARKATION • Leaving Sydney is easy, train or bus to circular quay and 5-10 minute walk if you are not carrying a lot of luggage. • Waiting time was ok. SHIP OVERALL& SERVICE • Standard décor and easy to navigate. • Happy cheery staff who sang and danced in the main dining room. Our waitor was a funny man. CABIN • Had balcony room for 3 people. The interior was okay but the actual balcony was small. It was not possible for 2 people to lay down. FOOD • Chicken schnitzel was amazing! A must try • Main dining room was pretty good, steward was cheery and encouraged us to try more food, generous portions. • Buffet breakfast was great, we lived right under the buffet so it was very convenient. • Drinks – paid ones were good, but the free soda/lemonade tasted very bland. ENTERTAINMENT • Green thunder was a great experience, but I must admit, is scary at countdown… • Mini golf on board, appears to be good for families. PORTS • N/A this was a sampling cruise.

Great first time experience with friends

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8C
It was the floor below Buffet, it was not too loud.
Very easy to grab food, however not good on the waist line.
