We waited over a year to see the Great Barrier Reef. Then, when the moment came, Celebrity/Sunlovers Cruises failed to provide the means for seeing the Reef. The Celebrity/Sunlovers boat held just 27 people, forcing the 300 people to go aboard for just 15 minutes each. 15 minutes to see the Great Barrier Reef is false advertising, verging on fraud. And we were charged nearly $300 extra to see the Reef for 15 minutes. [Then we did not even get the 15 minutes because the glass-bottom boat was cancelled by ocean swells.

Entertainment production shows in the theatre are almost unbearable--unintelligible and loud--almost to the point of feeling like one is being assaulted. Individual outside performers are very good, however.
Cairns is the port where we scheduled to see the Great Barrier Reef from a glass-bottomed boat excursion, run by Celebrity/Sunlovers Cruises. The excursion, however, was designed so badly (and described in the enticing brochure so inaccurately) that nearly all of those signed up for the glass-bottomed boat never got to see the Reef.
