We sailed with a group of 22 and this itinerary was the first choice of the group, many of whom hadn't cruised before.
Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth.
For a large group it was difficult to find any public area on sea days to meet together without us paying for a meeting room. In the end we met in the Horizons buffet dining area mid afternoon but not as comfortable as a lounge area. The entertainment was very good - The Adele experience and A NZ singer giving excellent performances and the food was satisfactory. The ship was full and I was told that this is always the case as it is a cruise for which you need no passport so is very popular with Australians.
Our stateroom A 535 was old, dated and smelly as was the corridor outside, sometimes smelling of sewage. It was noisy early in the morning when they moved the deck chairs around on the deck above.
The bed linen was lovely and the bathroom amenities average. Pump soap & shampoo in the shower and a small body lotion on the vanity. No other vanity itmes supplied.
