Sail Date: Oct 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Fiji Beach

I always wanted to go to Australia, and this transpacific cruise was the right price. It was 22 days from Seattle. We had a balcony cabin on deck 10. The ship was very clean and the staff was very attentive. However, the ship was showing her age. We are seasoned cruisers and found the food to be okay, but did buy the 3 specialty dining package and enjoyed the meals in Giovanni's, Chops and the Japanese restaurant. It was a nice break from the ordinary dining. I will continue to do the specialty dining when we cruise. We also did the Mystery Dinner, which was a lot of fun. It was in Chops, which was delicious.

We enjoyed the ports of call. We did the beaches. That was our main reason for going. The clear blue water and white beaches were our main focus.

Our tour in Fiji was excellent. The beach, entertainment, snorkeling and food was wonderful. The beach was beyond my expectations. We had an excellent time.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Our cabin was fine. Just showing some age. Our cabin steward was attentive. I did have to ask for bathrobes, as they were not there when we arrived, but after that, all was well.
