Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Inside

Standing in a queue with 2000 people to disembark in Auckland NZ while 2 staff look up each passenger manually in a book. I'll find out why in an hour or so. Worst disembarcation I've had in 30 years. Crew are stiff. Food is terrible (stale bread served up with dinner multiple times).

Cabin so small there is no chair or table. Not enough space to walk down the side of the bed.

Public spaces aren't big enough for the number of passengers.

Cabin Review

Inside

Not enough space to walk down each side of the bed. 2 singles pushed together kept coming apart. Stuard efficient and room kept clean and tidy.

Port Reviews

Napier

Art Deco. Walk the foreshore and take a vintage car ride.

Picton

Surprisingly nice. The Malborough sound sailaway is the highlight though.

Akaroa

Walk up to the giants garden. You will enjoy walking the town and lunching in a cafe or resteraunt.

Sydney (Australia)

Great place to go. We live there.

Dusky Sound

Ship skipped all the sounds.

Dunedin

Ship skipped the port.

Tauranga

Arrived during a triathelon. You get a choice of bay or beach. Would be great for a summer holiday.
