Billed as hi end luxury to Aus & NZ with exciting stops. Was average cruise but 3-4 times what it was worth. Very dissapointed with kangaroos &koalas tour, few kang in trees, two koalas - do not go on morning tour. Gratuities not inc for drinks -18%! We were sick on board & charged fortune for what seemed excessive treatment for flu & bronchitis. Profit center charges. Food in cabin generally arrived cold. Cheap Mickey Mouse game with internet access. Shows & dancing too late - never got to dance once. Missed two stops for weather - should compensate passengers, even so. These are the experts, we didn't get what we paid for, they should know stops are missed at this time of year. Not inadvertising. Overall quite dissatisfied. My wife confined to cabin, missed 1/3 cruise but no offer of compensation, very expensive cruise of a lifetime ruined- feel very ripped off.

Cruise to Australia & Nz - not good!
