We have always spent time at the Pub, but after listening to Micheal ( and as a musician myself) I thought his guitar balance was out of wack and the vibe just wasn't there. We really enjoyed Paul at the Schooner Bar (Yes every night.) A very professional entertainer

Probable not as easy as previous Disembarkation. We put this down that the ship was delayed and a lot of people panicked to get off. We ourselves missed our flight back to Cairns and had to rebook a flight later that day at a cost.
