Review summary

As this was our second time on the cruise we knew what to expect. However, it seems they have relaxed their rules for using the dining room. Rules were not enforced on a uniform basis. This caused our only problem on the cruise. Food, service and our room were excellent. Very relaxing with smooth waters. Would not recommend Sydney as a stop. Very small town with very little to do.

Food and Dining

Food and food service was excellent. Wine was very over priced for what you got.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Second time we took this cruise. It seemed like on board activities options were less this time for things we liked to do. We did use the outdoor parking pool, went to an art discussion and walked almost every day.

Singers and dancers were outstanding. Rest of entertainment was so so.
