We love Hobart and we meet friends in two ports. Also the scenic cruising was great along with the dolphins and birds and the scenery coming out of Port Arthur was stunning. Sunrise and sunset over the ocean, a full moon and calm seas finished off the perfection. While the speciality dining in the Sreakhouse left a little to be desired the Balcony Dinner was absolutely amazing. The drinks, the quality ..and quantity...of the food, the service, the flowers, the photograph all made for a magic night and was exceptionally good value for money. Worth every penny of the $125. We thoroughly recommend it. Food generally varied from very average to very good, overall very satisfactory. The buffet was great for breakfast, not quite so appetising for lunch and a bit crowded but if you took your food a little further out aft of the buffet there was a lovely comfortable table area. Lots of good pools some tucked away quite privately. Sometimes the singers in the pool area are very noisy and caused folk to,leave but you can find other places easily. Movies under the stars is good day or night. My husband is in a wheelchair and we were given every consideration by both staff and passengers making what could have been very challenging a most pleasant epcruise experience.

Pleasant and relaxing

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BB B300
This was an accessible cabin and had everything we needed. Fantastic cupboard space and plenty of coat hangers which is quite unusual and the bed was very comfortable.
