This cruise was totally enjoyable for us. I have just read a review that to me was highly exagerated by a disgruntled passenger. There had been a "small" (5 or 6)out break of Gastro on the ship before we boarded at Singapore . for the 14 night cruise to Fremantle. We were advised almost immediately of the problem and precautions we should take. Were given regular updates on the situation as it improved After a couple of days we (and other passengers we met) were very happy with what was being done Yes!The crew were given extra duties to serve ALL food in the buffet. A practice that should be employed everywhere at food outlets. I have witnessed some pretty gross behavior at places where customers serve themselves. We had a lot of very enjoyable interaction withe catering staff .THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC and Varied each day.You could fine dine if you wished Tables were always cleared quickly and cleansed The only area where it may have been a bit too cool for some people was the main theatre. I could not believe the high quality of the theatre productions. Our cabin crew lady did an excellent job. Our only complaint was that much of the activity(eg quizzie etc) was very American. It was an American ship but the passenger were nearly all Australian The excursion times were hampered by docking troubles with port authorities:and some did not deliver what was promised as a result of this The manner in which they organized exiting ship for excursions and dis embarking was excellent

I have just read a review that to me was highly exagerated by a disgruntled passenger.

for the 14 night cruise to Fremantle.

We were advised almost immediately of the problem and precautions we should take.

Were given regular updates on the situation as it improved

Yes!The crew were given extra duties to serve ALL food in the buffet.

A practice that should be employed everywhere at food outlets. I have witnessed some
