Review summary

Purchased as a late Valentines Day present to each other we thought a 3 night cruise out of Adelaide would be nice... the woman who sold us the cruise at the Phil Hoffman Travel Expo actually worked for the CMV company and raved about the Astor... we explained it was a romantic getaway and she booked us in... And then when we boarded... we had two single beds that couldn't be converted... one of the beds was lilting so that you felt you were going to roll out of bed at night. The dining room experience was just that, an experience that I wouldn't want to repeat... I felt we were shuttled like cattle to out table and rushed through our meal... and the buffet style restaurant had inadequate seating for the number of guests and you had to be quick to get food or the restaurant would close. All in all I would not go on the Astor again... very disappointing!

Ship tip

If your'e after romance make sure you tell them you actually want to sleep in the same bed! We had an ocean view for a late Valentines Day present to each other only to arrive and be greeted by two single beds that couldn't be moved :-(
