Embarkation was the quickest I've ever experienced! Literally took less than 30 minutes - disembarkation was also the same. Amenities and stores on board were above expectations and the staff were all very lovely and friendly. Balcony cabin was amazing - only hiccup was the steward leaving a ladder in our room for some reason which took a while to get removed. The main dining room had an excellent array of food choices - our waiters were a bit slow/cold but it didn't put us off from returning each night. The trivia and outdoor movie nights onboard the ship were my favourite - also loved the Halloween balloon drop and the many Halloween decorations! Only disappointment was the karaoke rooms being closed - would have loved to enjoy this acitivty with my fellow passengers. Shows were of a very high calibre and the music around the ship was also very good.

Enjoyable new ship

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Christchurch City Tour
    The bus ride to Christchurch took 2.5 hours - the Antarctic centre wasn't anything to rave on about. The tank ride and 4D movie was fun though, but not worth the money. After that, we had to quickly have lunch and were left in Christchurch for an hour or so to walk around - our tour guide wasn't very helpful here.

  • Rotorua
    We did the Luge and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - only had time for 3 luge rides as going back up on the cable car took quite a while, but the views were worth it! The luge is also super duper fun. The restaurant there is also very nice - buffet style.

  • Culinary Tour
    One of the best excursions - our tour guide was lovely and so down to Earth! First off, we had coffee and snacks at a local cafe, then went to a gelato shop which had many different flavours including Cucumber (which was actually amazing). Lunch was very fancy and the chocolate shop/factory was a great experience. Highly reccomend this tour.
