The refurbishment (with the exception of the Marque which was VERY tired) was good. Our cabin stewards were very helpful and happy. Communications however were woeful including the daily newspaper, (nobody including the local bus driver knew that there was a festival parade and a wonderful fireworks display in Cairns while we were there. Many of the crew were very hard to understand as their English was not good and this included a number of public anouncements. The hygiene policeing in the dining areas was nonexistant. Having just comleted a cruise witl the Royal Caribean where you were not allowed into a dining area without "washy washy" we were a bit worried. Most of the cruise and ship was ok but we left with a feeling that improvements were required sooner than later This ship could be good value for money but management need to work on comms and hygeine before these things cause some major problems

Room for improvement
