Had an Awesome experience on the ship. Very friendly service, Good food, loved the restaurants. quiet lounges everywhere - Port stops were great, loved Wallaroo the best! The beds were so comfortable and if it got rough at the front or back of the ship, going to the middle of the ship you hardly felt a thing. Variety of entertainment on board - we were a group of 9 girls on a reunion and we were accommodated everywhere we went. The small casino area was fun. We could not go onshore at Kangaroo Island because of the fires so the staff jumped in and put on extra entertainment to fill the void. The ship stood on standby to take on people who may have required evacuation (which did not happen) and they also raised over $10,000 for the Kangaroo Island fire. Getting on and off the ship was a dream. Only whinge was the windows were dirty - I think for a cruise on the ocean it would have been nice to have a view of it lolol. I think some of the other comments on this site were too harsh - we read them before we left and were worried about our trip - no need to worry as I think some of the reviews were not warranted - everything was working, clean and very pleasant. Enjoy yourselves and understand they are servicing 1200 people at a time.

Great Room, Great Staff
