A friend at work recommended a cruise, in a moment of madness we booked through luxury escapes for 10 nights leaving Sydney for New Caledonia and Vanuatu. The ship is tired and showing its age, tattoos looked compulsory, probably with their room number so when they are inebriated they can find their way back. There is nothing interesting to do unless you enjoy drinking, belly flop competitions or towel folding exhibitions.

The food is simply gross, it’s like I imagine prison would be, the chips must have been refried at least 4 times. Yes there is a wall climb, basketball and crazy golf but it’s just not enough to fill a day and so with relief we informed the crew to get permission for disembarkation and got off at Noumea, booked a hotel and flights home, never again. We did not belong and we knew it. $$$$$& down the drain and a much needed holiday completely ruined.
