Better by land

Sail Date: January 01, 2007

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship itself was beautiful. We had a small inside cabin on Plaza level. The Cruise director was pretty useless and there was a lack of information about the ports. We also had very rough seas on the Tasman and several days of rain including the Fiords. We took some very good independent shore excursions and did Christchurch and Melbourne on our own. We were 8 hours late getting to Hobart so we just went to Bonorong which we enjoyed. Sydney was our favorite and we spent 3 extra days there. This is an itinerary better done on land though.

Pros: Australia

Cons: rough seas

Recommends Sapphire Princess? No.
