We booked this cruise because it seemed an amazing deal, after booking I was really tentative about whether we'd enjoy it or not (our first time cruising) but I didnt need to worry too much!
Everything was just so easy, we knew not to expect 5 stars but it was a pretty solid 3. Having a balcony made all the difference and we loved sitting out watching the waves (and dolphins!). The kids enjoyed the kids clubs (ages 6 & 9) especially the planned activities. Which was brilliant because we got to enjoy the adults only area - settling in on a daybed with a mocktail and a book was bliss - really appreciated having no internet, made it much easier to just zone out totally.
Food was fine, the mexican was great and the sushi was well worth afew dollars. They poached eggs to perfection every breakfast. Everything else was just fine, even Nouveau was just ok.
The cabin was decent, abit bashed up and had afew marks but was kept pretty clean and the kids loved the hokey towel animals each day.
It was amazingly quiet (from people noises - it was quite creaky but in a sort of pleasant way from the boats movement).
Would happily stay in this room again
Sydneys lovely, nice walkability and so fun to go on the ferry to the AMAZING zoo
The locals were SO welcoming and friendly. The township itself was pretty boring though
