Melbourne to Melbourne, so no added cost of flights or hotel. Short cruise for friends who were first time cruisers. Smooth embarkation, plenty of staff to help you with luggage, however they lost the tag off ours, so had no clothes to change into for dinner. Took a while to locate it. Canaletto Dining Room (Formal Dining) this would be the hardest restaurant to find, only one set of lifts go to the part of deck 6 it is on. Food was average. Crown Grill not up to Noveau restaurant on Carnival Spirit. Wine prices were far too high, realise the demographics of delivery and storage and expect to pay more, but $9 wine selling for $46 Is not acceptable. Advise to take your own and pay the corkage to drink your own in the dining rooms. Cabin and shower area small, our steward kept it very clean, wardrobe space had a good supply of hangers. Entertainment ok and Roel de Vries in promenade bar was exceptional.

Ship hard to navigate
