We chose this cruise because it fitted with the dates we were available, due to work commitments. We had been to NZ before on a different cruise line, but love the place so repeat was not a problem.
Embarkation was handled well, we had a balcony cabin on deck 5 midship. Décor a little tired but cabin was roomy enough and found plenty of space for storage.
Cabin attendants were great, plenty of laughs and well looked after. We don't dine in the restaurants and found the buffet great, lots of variety and very nicely cooked. No self serve, guessing this was from illness and or wastage, but not a problem. Breakfast was crazy on sea days but we only made it up in time for a couple so no problem there, have an early lunch instead.
Cabin was roomy enough, we watched a few movies on sea days - plenty to choose from, comfortable viewing. Decor a little tired but not a big deal, bathroom was compact but what you'd expect, found plenty of storage room for our needs.
Cabin attendants were great, cleanliness excellent.
We arrived in Auckland about 6am went to the ship and dropped our bags in and walked around until time to board - can't really comment on more!
