An excellent cruise. Wonderful crew and great friendly staff. Ship layout was good and the lifts were fast and regular. Shopping was fun and there were many bargains on board.

Duty free shopping at the Yellow shop in Vanuatu was unbelievable.

Food was great except for main dining room (level 4) where I found it wanting, Steaks were over cooked even when replaced and the Roast Lamb on the last night was as tough as old shoe leather.Service in the main dining room however, was good.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 2D

Well appointed cabin with plenty of storage and hanging space. Mattress could do with a revamp as springs are getting tired. Cabin steward Elmer was very helpful and conscientious.
