Sail Date: Feb 2024
Cabin: Mini-Suite with Balcony

We are a couple who joined two other couples chose this cruise because it started and ended in Auckland NZ. We have done around 20 cruises including three half world cruises over 30 years from Ponant to Paul Gaugin through Cunard, Sun Line, Carnival, P & O (UK), Princess and Celebrity.

At 3000 passengers it was the largest ship we had been on (our other cruises were all on 2000 or less passenger ships) and we knew it was full as two months out we could not get the dining choices we wanted- simply a table for six in any included dining room at any time up to 7.30pm. We had to book each night separately on the basis of a 4 and a 2 in order to get the same time and dining room (Concerto)

After all this messing about, when we got on board the maitre-de simply gave us what we had tried but failed to book up ahead- a table for 6 at the same time each night!

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony

A spacious balcony mini suite spoilt by stained carpet and poorly maintained balcony and intrusive blue tinted balcony glass. Great cabin steward.
