journey under the southern stars

Sail Date: December 2010
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Other
the ship itself is ok cabin was fine service by the steward excellent my problem was the overall standard was not as good as sea princess . the vast majority of passengers were australian and they seem to be happy with a lower standard of food and service .I did not consider it to be fine dining with a few exceptions the food was not bad just not as good as it should be . one day they had baked potato!!! as a vegetarian option. menu seemed to be in a time warp with some dishes ie baked alaska portion of which would have fed an irish navvy.

entertainment was poor and whoever it was in the atrium managed to sing off key every evening I beat a hasty retreat as soon as .

they had a tropical evening on deck 12 at 11pm the weather was cold so do not know how many turned up but would imagine the crew would outnumber them. the service in the restaurant varied from good to awful and I don't think they quite got the concept of afternoon tea Less
