Exceeded my expectations, the accommodation was spotlessly clean, the staff were very friendly and the overall atmosphere was very laid back. The amenities on board were excellent and the gym & entertainment provided was more than sufficient to pass away the time. The food was excellent and there was plenty of food variety if you look around and try the different options available. The ship is massive and a lot of time can be spent just walking around it. Ports of Call Isle of Pines was beautiful. The locals sold food at stalls and there is a resort where you can rent kayaks and paddle boards. The snorkelling is very good as well and the beach lovely. Noumea is the capital and a proper city. Most things were closed when we arrived. We took the water taxi to Duck Island. There was beautiful snorkelling here but the beach is basically broken coral. There is a restaurant/resort on the island but it is extortionate and they struggled with peak service for people.

First Time Cruising - exceeded my expectations.
