My husband and I thought it to be a great idea to spend the Christmas holidays onboard a luxury cruise ship, Oh dear what a mistake. Forget luxury .It was a disaster right from the beginning with a filthy state room. The food was awful with mostly the same menu everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the buffet. The dining room also seemed to have the same menu each night and certainly not to a standard we had expected and the service was terrible, The entertainment was practically non-existent during the day apart from a 30minute quiz session and only 3 shows on a 10 day cruise and out of the three one was a rock show, certainly not our cup of tea. Any purchases onboard whether it be alcohol or lollies was very expensive. To top it all Noumea is a very scruffy place and it cost us $50 to get there and $100 for lunch and one drink each. Lifou is disgustingly filthy and a tiny beach. With all the beautiful beaches we have in Australia it is silly to go to these awful places.
On first arrivalat our cabin I found rubbish on thr floor . bluefluffon the bed but worst of all every surface was thick with dust .Also it was so cold , it was reallyuncomfortable. We tried toadjust the temperature to no avail. We spoketoother passengers with similar problems.
Scruffy place and pathetic excuse for a beach Toilet facilities disgusting and recommended restaurant bad service and very overpriced
Very small beach. Disgustingly filthy.
