Wanted to see New Zealand. Cruise tours were limited. No real wine tours if that is what you are interested in. Loved the Fjords. Cities were interesting . Missed a port due to fog-Port Chalmers. NZ is a beautiful if hilly country. Weather was exceptionally good except for one day of fog. Tasmania was a pleasant surprise with a visit to a animal rescue sanctuary. Able to get up close and personal with many kangaroos.
For a new ship the cabin looked a little worn and the food quality has definitely declined. It used to be so good now the quality is suffering. The beef options were in the main tough unless you ordered from the Steakhouse menu. Vegetables were wet or mushy. We used anytime dining and did go to the Noodle bar, the cafe, and the pizza restaurant which were all good.
I always enjoy the music in the atrium. Good selection of artists and easy to get drinks and food nearby. Did not go to any shows but enjoyed the art auctions and did purchase some art
For a newer ship the decor is looking a little worn. Our bathroom had an odor in it all cruise long. we asked the steward to re-sanitize the bathroom but it did not help. I will be traveling with a deodorizer next cruise.
