Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
So glad we took a chance as we had an awesome time. From the moment we walked on till 10days later as we disembarked it was 1st class treatment from all staff from Stewards, Reception Staff, Bar Staff, Waiters etc. Entertainment was top quality, we struggled to fit everything we all wanted 2 do in. We were traveling in a group of 2 adults & 3 children, every1 wanted 2 do something different so it was a real juggle 2 satisfy every1's wishes.
Buffet was gr8 4 breakfast but was a bit over it 4 lunch & dinner so it was off the Waterfront 4 those meals.
Kids club was a bit ordinary 4 my 12y old (HQ) but our 2 kids under 10 seemed satisfied with what was on offer in Shark Shack. Other traveling friends had a kid in turtle cove (4yold) & he kept asking 2 go back whenever his mum took him out.
Loved going 2 breakfast only 2 come back 2 the cabin 2 find our beds made, tidied room & wet towels had been replaced by fresh ones. After dinner our beds were turned down with a surprise More every 2nd night or so, usually chockies or a towel shaped in2 an animal, kids loved going back 2 the cabin 2 find out what it was going 2 b.
Rooms were bigger than I expected & there was heaps of storage 2 unpack our bags. We had 5 ppl in a 4birth cabin & there was plenty of storage. Having a fridge also was gr8 as we bought cans & poppers with us on board.
All in all its what u make it, u can either walk around complaining or suck it up & enjoy the experience.
Best part of the ship is Oasis Bar, every afternoon from 5pm is where u could find me, cocktail in hand, no kids, relaxing on a deck chair. Less
