Originally we were thinking to hire a campervan and drive to KI stopping along the way at various sites, but when I checked the availability for short cruises, this one turned up as a viable alternative to a self drive and far cheaper.
I read many reviews before booking, many of them unfavorable to the old girl, Pacific Eden, so my expectations were not high. Having cruised with Celebrity the last 3 times and Norwegian Pearl on KISS Kruise 7, I understand there are certain levels of ship and accommodations.
The booking process was easy and printing e-tickets and bag tags all straightforward. We were allocated a 1.30pm boarding time and we arrived around 12pm and still got straight through and on board in about 20 mins.
