Excellent Short cruise

Sail Date: March 2010
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Perth (Fremantle)
Arrived at Fremantle dock and the time it took for us to sign in get passed customs only took 15 minutes dad and i did not rush once aboard, took our carry on luggage to the room we didn't panic that our bags hadn't arrived went for a wonder around the ship it was great i admit yes it is different from the Queen Mary 2 but it was still one experience to remember.

The waiters serving us for first sitting of dinner were great, had a great table of 8 everyone at our table seemed to be from Sydney and disembarking in Hong Kong.

The entertainment staff were awesome they made everyone welcome, also befriended three of them and they were quite friendly i would walk down one of the corridors and if they weren't busy they would stop and have a chort conversation.I do feel sorry for them(and all the housekeeping, waiters and bar staff) when it comes to cruisers who think the whole world revolves around them. The lectures were quite interesting, expecially those on the worlds More greatest ocean liners, the food at lunch and dinner in both dining room and Lido deck were fantastic not one boring meal

The performances were interesting and the activities after dinner were never boring, all different types of trivia, sing-a-longs were great.

End of the day a cruise is a trip to which should be relaxing, there is nothing worse then listening to a fellow passenger who complains about their eggs are cooked for three minutes and not two minutes Less

It was fantastic entering Hong Kong harbour, it is one of the greatest harbours to sail into, if not better then Sydney, just the way that the clouds lift off and you see all the different skyscrapers
