Sail Date: Feb 2020

We went to this overnighter to get an idea of if we would like being on a cruise ship, I found the Vasco Da Garma to be dated, looked a bit 1990’s to me, the cabins were small as expected but had stains and broken fixtures. The food was average to poor and small portions, there is very little to do onboard unless you just want to drink and sit in a sun lounge all day, the entertainment for the night was a Fringe World circus act called Yuck Circus that was an absolute load of crap, this was confirmed by all in our group of twenty.

For this headline act to be aloud to be on the ship shows me their contempt for their customers. There would be nothing for a child or teenager to do if you were travelling with one, It has put me off ever going on a proper cruise.

Cabin Review

Old stained decor broken fittings, very dated, like staying at a backpackers hostel.

Port Reviews

Perth (Fremantle)

Port was even more dated than the ship.
