Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin:
Valentines Day, special package bought was bottle of wine & cake & roo

We chose this company solely on the price & sailed with them last November from Sydney to Gladstone, Mooloolaba, Brisbane back to Sydney. This time we sailed Sydney, Port Arthur, Hobart, Melbourne, Burnie back to Sydney. (Sydney Port Authority did not allow us to leave the harbour till the following evening due to VERY rough seas & bad storms, some passengers complained but I didn't, as a seasoned cruiser I appreciated it! We had smooth sailing from then on, the shows exceptional, it was our birthdays & they went above & beyond making us feel special! The staff remembered us from previous cruise & continued to give excellent service! We definitely will be back cruising with this company. We get to one port so they reimbursed us a considerable sum!! Never had this previously with ANYONE! Their cruise ship is amazing & staff fantastic, food was excellent too! We were inside cabin & found the room very clean, bathroom excellent, shower had A LOT of room.

Cabin Review

Very clean, tidy, enough room, who spends time in the cabin anyway??!

Port Reviews

Melbourne

Port Melbourne is easy to walk off ship & head to the tram 109 which goes directly into Melbourne centre. It runs 24hrs, easy to travel back to ship, need an MYKI card or risk a huge fine.

Burnie

Shuttle buses dropped at 3 specific locations. We met up with friends, taken back to specific spot for shuttle back to cruise ship, all went smoothly
