Excellent trip all went well emergency entertainer added in Fremantle was a nice surprise. All fill in Acts were very good as were the large showtime shows in the Theatre. The waiters in the Marquis Restaurant & Horiizon Court buffet were attentive, helpful & friendly. The cabin staff also very good, kept the cabin very clean and stocked with fresh towels. The cabin had plenty of coat ...

Disappointing

This cruise didn’t meet my expectations. The menu in the dining room was very disappointing. We ate most of our meals in the buffet which was pretty good. Many people on the ship had guaranteed cabins but didn’t get it till the night before and if you were on a b2b you had to change rooms. Very disorganized. Embarkation was the longest of any prior cruise and the long delay to get off at various ...

We were on the 18 night Bottom end Aus/NZ 25/2. We had a great time, pity the weather was not a bit warmer. We were apprehensive about the the bushfires only to be faced with the Corona virus and travel restrictions. A stressful time. Ship and crew were great and we really enjoyed ourselves. The only thing that we did not like was the Royalup and Royaldown policy which is a waste of time and ...

Cruise to nowhere overnighter.

First Time Cruiser • Age 110s

We went to this overnighter to get an idea of if we would like being on a cruise ship, I found the Vasco Da Garma to be dated, looked a bit 1990’s to me, the cabins were small as expected but had stains and broken fixtures. The food was average to poor and small portions, there is very little to do onboard unless you just want to drink and sit in a sun lounge all day, the entertainment for the ...

Fringe Festival - 1 night in-Port

We love the Fringe Festival and thought this would be something different and exciting to do. How wrong could we be? Embarkation was smooth for us but our friends were held up because they had a very slow person who couldn’t type the information quickly or correctly and made many mistakes so it took them a while to check in. Our Cabin 9090 was a good size (for a ship) but the floor was ...

Over-priced for what you get

My husband and I wanted to try another ship from Fremantle rather than fly over east or to Singapore for a short cruise, as we sail about 6 times a year. This was a one night in port celebration when we booked, but later converted to part of the Perth Fringe festival. We went on the Astor in 2018 for 1 night (which we hated!) but thought the Vasco da Gama might be a better option as it was ex ...

Absolutely horrendous

We had a large booking for an overnight stay on the Vasco Da Gama. The ship itself was okay for the rating and expectation (tiny cabins and small pools) but the behaviour of the staff was the worst I have ever come across! They were rude and we felt like an inconvenience to them every time ordered a drink or food. It often took up to 40 minutes to get a drink due to under-staffing as well. Maybe ...

Don't forget your UNO cards, your umbrella-or your sunscreen!

The advantage of this cruise for Perth is it leaves and returns to Fremantle (with a free shuttle to get you to the train station, if you, like us are taking the train to your home). Each day there would be an announcement of where we were (by latitude and longitude)-I think it would have been good to say something like "If we were on land now, we would be in Busselton", or something ...

We went on the cruise to celebrate the Union of of my daughter and her partner. During the life boat drill one staff member verbally stated she didn’t want to demonstrate, and after being told she still didn’t demonstrate the procedure for entering the water. We then went to dinner and was refused entry for wearing dressed shorts. Getting changed I gained entry only to see another two patrons ...

Chose to do a short cruise with friends, first day one bar and one beer bar with about 6 staff all up to cater for whole ship Very poor selection of drinks, no sweet white wine, poor choice of beer Most of the staff seemed like it was tooo much trouble to be pleasant and seemed like we were an inconvenience to them, probably came across three staff that seemed like they were happy in their ...
