The Vista Dining Room and the Pinnacle Grill were especially nice! The Lido restaurant was just fine for off time visits.

It is almost unheard of to acknowledge, but truly, from waiters, to stewards, to front desk staff, to those maintaining the ship, everyone was helpful, professional, and an eagerness to make the experience a quality one.

We returned to Sydney after our cruise for 4 days. We wish we could have spent a few more days at least.

Melbourne, Australia

We spent a bit of time in a wonderful museum and the buses were easy to maneuver around town. The Great War Exhibition was the best - Gallipoli, The Scale of War.

Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
