Very enjoyable cruise, good weather, good staff, nice ship

The agent in the car park has to be the rudest individual i ever had the misfortune to meet

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Well organised, although service for anytime dining was hit and miss, some nights quick, others painfully slow

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Trivia was better some days that others, depending on presenter

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The shows seem to lack the quality of Princess shows in the past. Second rate Comedians and Magicians that would struggle to cut it in the local RSL club

Service and Staff

Most of the staff were friendly, our room steward couldn't do enough for us and was always there with a smiley face

4 out of 5
We were in transit so it was fairly easy xt
