Review Summary

Wonderful itinerary on a superb ship.   Seas can get a little rough between Australia and New Zealand, but that ship seems to handle it well. Food quality was adequate and service was excellent. We did a two day land excursion through Queentown during the cruise. There was a lot of time spent on a bus, but I did feel it was worth it. We were offered a $300 upgrade  for a smaller bus and better accommodations which I would not recommend. We also had an included classic drink package which had enough variety to satisfy most taste.  We also scheduled a number of our excursions through Viator.  We had no problems in this regard, and Viator seemed to give a better value.  However, you must follow the directions given on your receipt carefully.
