Sail Date: Jan 2023

We choose this cruise because it fitted into the school holidays as my husband is a teacher. We had never been to South Australia and thought this was a good way to get a taste.

We found all the online Covid requirements weren't required. On embarkation we were asked if we had taken a test but not asked for proof of a negative test.

Masks were recommended. First couple of days about 50% of the passengers were wearing them as the cruise went on less and less. The last day we noticed not even the servers in the buffet area at breakfast were wearing them.

Cabin Review

Upon entering our cabin, we found the curtains hanging off the rail. It took 2 days for them to be hung properly. Only one bath robe in the cupboard, we had to ask twice for a second one. The bathroom had cracks around the basin and black marks on the tiles. There were also cracks on the floor tiles and dirt and dust behind the doors on the floor.

The shower had good water pressure.

Port Reviews


The train service from the port to Adelaide was great.
