Sail Date: Sep 2018

We chose this ship for a not too expensive cruise with out family.

We boarded in Brisbane and that was well organised and hassle free. On 1st impressions the ship is old, rusty, worn carpet, stained, marked walls but reasonable clean apart from that. Our cabin was the same - old and tired. The bed was quite comfortable albeit a bit lumpy and no sheet, just a duvet or doona (whatever you want to call it). Our sheets were old and stained and never changed on the 8 day cruise. Our balcony was filthy and looked like it had never been cleaned.

There were some problems with the pipes in the companionway and our cabin went without water a couple of times and we couldn't use the toilet for quite some time. They plumber had to have access to our cabin and when we came back later on the door was not locked.
