Review summary

A short 7 night cruise up Queensland coast. We needed a quick getaway and this fitted the bill. Lots of retail experiences if interested. For us it was about relaxing, enjoying leisurely activities and meeting new people!

Ship Quality

Getting a bit tired but all areas clean and well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Bit small...very little room to get into queen bed from sides. Clean and tidy. Comfortable bed. Fresh linen.

Ship tip

Choose a cabin midship. Adults only pool area near gym at back of ship less busy than deck 12 midship pool area.

Ports of call

Brisbane, Australia

No excursions for us as saw relatives here

Airlie Beach, Queensland, Australia Did not visit port

Husband not interested as been many times before and tender needed to reach port...delays.

5 out of 5
Great...easy walk to town and along foreshore to lagoon.

Port Douglas, Australia

4 out of 5
Tender needed. Interesting town. Worth a walk through. Can get to reef from onshore operators...cheaper than princess shore excursions.


5 out of 5
Excellent...smooth...ahead of anticipated time.
