Very nice ship. Excellent itinerary, beautiful ports.
Good value.

Pros: Pretty port towns, beautiful cruising in the sounds of New Zealand relaxed, friendly atmosphere onboard

Cons: Noisy , creaking walls in balcony stateroom, food only 'fair' on most occasions, long wait ( about 1 and 1/2 hours)loading onto tenders .

Ship Quality
My balcony cabin was noisy, vibrating, creaky walls. Moved cabin, and the vibration was less, but still noisy walls. Other people said their cabins were quiet!
Food and Dining
Mostly, fair. Once in a while, very good. Good breakfast.
Cabin / Stateroom
