Embarkation

4 out of 5
Service was fine but the facility at Bris was nonexistent.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Would give more stars if possible. Tried all 3 speciality restaurants, some more than once and worth every cent. Both buffet and a la carte restaurants were superb too.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Generally good but a bit repetitive. NOT sure what to expect as it was our first big cruise. Too many dance classes. NOT enough sports or outdoor activities.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Shows catered to the older clientele but we did enjoy the comedy and magician ones. Should have been more opportunities to see the big shows. One or 2 sold out shows left many people disappointed.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Ours just did teens club and had a ball. They didn't always do the programmed activity but that was the kids choice. Group dinners and night parties were a hit. Especially the spa night.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Could not be faulted. Cabin Steward to bar and service staff. Wonderful

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
NOT enough pool space. Plenty of exercise getting around the place as it is huge. But that was ok too.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Good size. 3rd bed came from the ceiling only at night which was great. Lovely and clean. Small balcony but to be expected. Great bathroom. Big enough for us.

Ship tip

Try all 3 speciality restaurants. Worth every cent. Get in early for the shows as they fill quickly.

Ports of call

Brisbane, Australia Did not visit port

We live here. Dock facility does not exist.

Darwin, Australia

2 out of 5
Dirty and overrun by indigenous people. They are allowed to do what they want including toiletting in the main streets. NOT acceptable and embarrassing for locals and all Australians to see. They are tolerated in nice restaurants and clubs and just walk thru taking drinks and food leftovers. Very sad to see.

Singapore Marina Bay

5 out of 5
Lovely port with lots to see

Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam

3 out of 5
Phu my was not a nice town. Go to ho chi min city if you can. Or go on a war Type of tour which is interesting.

Kaohsiung

4 out of 5
Would like to have toured but Tours here sold out days before arriving. Can't understand why they didn't arrange more busses. Little info given onboard on how to get around this interesting city.

Hong Kong

5 out of 5
Love it. Just stay longer. So much to see and do. Do your homework though.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
No problems here though the free shuttle to a random station was pointless. Should have just gone to kowloon station .
