Review summary

I personally thing this cruise line is over priced. It’s a high end cruise line but there’s nothing to do on the ship. There’s no slides, rock climbing, shuffle board, bowling alley. Also I missed getting my towel animals!!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

All dining rooms, specialty and buffet food was very good

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
The ship is geared toward 60+ age group in my opinion. I traveled with a age range of 21-45 and we were all very bored on cruise days. The only activities they offered were bingo, trivia and golf putting.

There is no dock so you have to take a tender to this port. It takes about 35 minutes each way.

Airlie Beach, Queensland, Australia
