- Cabin Type: Concierge Class
Once we made this decision it was clear to us that we will do it with Celebrity, probably the best cruise company, and they did not disappoint.
We travel from Toronto and opted for Cathay Pacific via Hong Kong. the flights were very good and in time.
The start of our 3 days stay in Sydney was not very good as we have been overcharged by the taxi driver from the airport. While the guy at the hotel realized and took all the info to make a complaint, did not hear from them, and this is the Four Season Hotel in Sydney, which except for this issue it was outstanding.
The embarkation went smoothly, and could have been better if the agents at the Cruise Terminal were more diligent.
The dining on the ship is great. the service outstanding the variety and quality of the food and drinks is impressive. The service in the main dining room was the best. We tried all the specialty restaurants and they definitely made a difference. The service at the bar at buffet area was outstanding, especially the young guy from Eastern Europe.
The entertainment was perfect. The performances were unique and appropriate for the passengers. The shore excursions were well organized and done. The main issue we had were the Bus service in New Zealand which needs improvements, especially in maintenance.

The tour was really great, except that the AC did not worked properly and we had to suffer for a few hours before they could change the bus.
