Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2019

We are Diamond+.

Why do ships make rules, but don't enforce them, e.g. dining rooms - men wearing shorts t-shirts and thongs, not good enough!

Cabin Review


Cabin 6V

Good, some noise from newlyweds next door. LOL...

Port Reviews

Newcastle (Australia)

Newcastle as a Port gets better every time, lots to see and do.


Plenty to see.


Suva was better.

Port Vila

Duty Free is excellent.

Mystery Island

Snorkelling good.


Turtles and fish, aplenty, right hand side of wharf about 150 metres, about 50 metres off the beach.

Sydney (Australia)

Sydney is home...


Did not go to Noumea, weather conditions were not good, first time this has happened to us.
