We were family group of 23 on this cruise, ages ranging from 79 to 5. There were many large family groups, which was great, as it was Australian school holidays. This was our 5th cruise with RC.
The check-in and bag drop in Sydney on embarkation was seamless and easy.
The ship is huge!
Please remember to buy snacks and drinks to take to the island as very limited items available from the local vendors. The swimming and and snorkelling were worth it.
Sydney a very busy bustling city. managed to see all the sights as we arrived a few days earlier. Used the Hop on Hop Off, the tram service and walked to most places in the city as our hotel was in the city.
