Sail Date: Jan 2020

We have cruised the world many times but sadly never around NZ and the opportunity to sail around nz on Explorer Dream and visit the magnificent Milford and Doubtful sounds at a very good price for a balcony cabin seemed a good deal.

Sadly the rooms are quite congested compared to say Princess cabins, the food - not bad in the sit down dining rooms but the Lido buffet area really congested and a very limited and ordinary food selection once again compared to other lines.

Then the extra charges on board like believe or not English Breakfast tea , all cakes and pastries apart from one or two basic types air the meal times, Ice Creams etc.

Cabin Review

congested and quite average
