Review summary

Great staff and New Zealand is beautiful. Loved Picton, Napier & Akoroa and Milford Sounds. Christmas day on the ship was disappointing with no Christmas menu and no Christmas Carols or festivities (they had this all on New Years Eve) very disappointed but the staff were amazing. Too much upselling constantly on the ship and constant additional costs for everything when it was already a more expensive cruise with being a Christmas New Year Cruise. Not our favourite ship out of the other couple of cruises we have done. But wonderful staff that made it very memorable.
