I chose this cruise because of their great advertising, which is totally false!The catamaran is old,decrepit,dank,and in dire need of a total overhaul!Those beautiful photos of a chef flaming food, it never happens, and their idea of exotic dishes is chicken done seven ways, lamb sausages, spattering of fish, meals served in an open dining area that is hot and humid and the flies feast on your food before you have a chance to!Majority of the meals are buffet, and there are flies, gnats, and tiny roaches around the food and coffee area.The place you may find relief from the heat could be your cabin,except your cabin is small, dank, and disgusting where the a/c knob turns without any change in the temperature.The ensuite bathroom is so small you have to shower with one foot in and one foot next to the toilet. When you wash your face or brush your teeth all you can smell is the sewer coming up from the drain.Don't lean on the sink because it wobbles.They also have a 24/7 deodorizer in the cabin spritzing every so many minutes.Stay away, book Captain Cook Cruises you will be so sorry if you book the Fiji Princess.Crew are great, and I feel for them having to work under the most horrible conditions!Their brochure is totally false advertising, and when I complained they said the ship went under total renovations after my cruise, that was a lie because we had to be out of our rooms by 9:00a.m for their quick turn.Lies, Lies,False Advertising! Run to Captain Cook Cruises.

Cabin Review

Cabin Orchid

Small, dark, dank, and we looked out to a working area.We booked a cabin for two, and when we showed up we were booked for the following Friday 2/23/18 therefore they stuck us in a family room with a huge sofa that took up the walking area.We hit our knees on the beds everyday!It has a 24/7 automatic deodorizer spritzing, bathroom small, bathroom sink reaked of sewer smells.Nothing ever felt clean, it's like your worst camping trip that you paid Hilton prices for!It is not what they advertise!No safe,a/c knob turns without any change in temperature,Dirty, Dirty, Dirty,Dark and Dank.PA system constantly scratchy in cabin.
