Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand

This cruise was our 1st cruise and reasonably short, but long enough to know if we would enjoy cruising.

Being a Chinese owned ship, it was mostly Chinese workers where 1/2 of them would wear face masks (which made it very hard to understand someone with an accent let alone wearing mask also). Two of the three free restaurant were often full as they didn't sit people together!!!! We had a table for 6 more than once with just the 2 of us. The pavilion did a banquet which was all brought out together and never kept hot. The dream dining room had the same seating arrangements and a choice of 3 meals from set menu. These guys were so busy that the plate was taken out from under you and next course given when you hadn't finish last mouthful. The food in all restaurants was Luke warm. GST +18% SURCHARGES were placed on all non inclusive items.
