Sail Date: Jan 2019
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony
Traveled with children

I loved New Zealand, scenery was beautiful, that was the only good part of my trip.

This ship is old, smelly & tired looking. The water slides & climbing wall advertised were only open for an hour once a day on port days and an hour twice a day on sea days so it was near impossible to use these amenities unless you wanted to line up for a couple of hours for one go - not my idea of fun.

My two teenage girls were bored out of their mind for the entire trip. There’s little for kids to do on this ship.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 5D

The cabin was small, furnishings old & bedding very uncomfortable.

Port Reviews


We found this guy when we came ashore, pure luck. We drove right around Akaroa. It was great & inexpensive.


We didn’t do a tour as we found them all quite over priced however the scenery around Picton was absolutely beautiful.
