Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Balcony

This was a 5 day cruise departing Melbourne to Tasmania. From the time I got on I could not believe the dated décor of the ship, brown everywhere you could not escape it. Very dated ship with poor activities and poor amenities. The cruise was full of children and those from the less fortunate class. Buffet terrible and dining room food terrible very little choice and stone cold most nights. Service was average and table company very bad, prefer not to be forced onto a table with other people as you never know how this will go. Our 2 couples on table were not really interested in communicating. Terribly boring show time each night same every night. Theme night very disappointing less than 30% participating and 1.5 hours disco music not well organised very boring.

I had not been on a cruise for 40 years and was shocked at what was on offer. Would recommend you choose a better line I think the Carnival Line is one for those with very limited budget and not wanting the finer things in life.

Never again.

Quite good bigger than I expected clean and plenty of room for storage probably one of the best surprises.
