Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dining room and specialty restaurants were amazing the service in dining room was excellent, Dini and Jai were the best. Personally I am not really enthusiastic about the buffets generally but I did like the Solarium buffet for adults only.

The North Star was awesome, the bumper cars were great and we enjoyed trivia when others weren’t arguing about answers.

Royal Theater

Some seats had obscured views with poles in the way. There was the eternal problem of people saving seats, but that seems to happen on every cruise.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room attendant was marvellous, Gede went above and beyond and definitely helped to make our trip memorable. Dini and Jai in the dining room were just delightful, our last night on the ship it felt like we were leaving behind family saying goodbye to them.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was spotless at all times, the public restrooms were always impeccably clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

Gede our room attendant did a wonderful job, our room was clean and tidy and no problem was too large or small. He takes pride in what he does and is a lovely person as well.

Was too humid and hot for me so we did not do much here, it was also raining which was unpleasant.

Moorea, French Polynesia

5 out of 5
We organised our own excursion and had a great time.

Bora Bora, French Polynesia

5 out of 5
Absolutely stunning place, swam with sharks and stingrays, had the most amazing time.

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
We did the Pearl Harbour shire excursion, it was a bit rushed but we stayed on in Honolulu so was able to go back and spend more time.
