Sail Date: Jul 2023

After the long-awaited return to cruising post-Covid, our experience aboard the ship had its ups and downs, leaving us with mixed feelings. Despite the challenges, the staff remained exceptional, providing their usual warm and attentive service that made our voyage enjoyable.

The onboard shows were a highlight, offering a delightful array of entertainment to cater to various tastes. From thrilling performances to engaging activities, there was something for everyone, ensuring no moment was dull.

However, the dining experience left room for improvement. The lack of variety in day-to-day meals was noticeable, and we were disappointed to find the cheese selection unavailable until the end of the cruise. Additionally, it was surprising to be charged extra for eggs Benedict, which we expected to be included.

Cabin Review

Staff were great. Very obliging when needing information.

On the small side even for only the two of us.

Balcony needed a good clean.

Port Reviews

Norfolk Island

Was hoping to snorkel. Now easier to visit from ship as Norfolk Island uses own tenders.
