Review summary

Great ship great food, great staff, great friendly passengers. Love the size of this ship. Always plenty of seats, cruise director Cuddy was fun. Memorable staff who go above and beyond to make your holiday special. Great varied entertainment. My husband Needed treatment in the ship's medical centre over many days. The 2 doctors there as well as the nurses are amazing. Very caring and professional.

Great size, easy access, quiet, very clean, room steward got us an extra soft bed topper as the bed was a bit hard . Great position 1st one near lobby. Could never hear external noises in our cabin. I would choose this cabin again. Loved the lower deck stability. Heaps of storage

Great start to our holiday. It is so beautiful to sail in or out of Sydney.

Picton, New Zealand

4 out of 5
This port is so close to the wineries of Blenheim. Shame it was a rainy day as it was gloomy and not good for sightseeing. A sunny day would show Picton in the pretty category

Wellington, New Zealand

Gorgus... highlight of my trip. Took a 4 hour small boat ride over the reef, swam with reef sharks and mantra rays. Spectacular waters. Snorkelled over corals and fish. A magical experience. Must do in your lifetime. So naturally beautiful.

Honolulu, Oahu

5 out of 5
Loved blue Hawaii. Great time of year. Waikiki has it all, brilliant beaches, bright blue water, friendly locals, shopping, must do is a full day tour to Polynesian cultural centre. Fabulous look at Polynesian village life in Hawaii, new Zealand, Samoa, Tahiti, Fiji. Pearl harbour is respectfully preserved and is a must see
