Just really have a fantastic time- whatever you choose to do. Make the best of your fabulous cruise.
have a great time
The South Pacific is a great itinerary for your first cruise. If you can afford it go Junior Suite you get great benefits.
We enjoyed breakfast and lunch at the dining room instead of the Windjammer, a lot less crowded and very good service
Take magnetic hooks to atache to the walls of the stateroom. It helps to hang stuff like sea passes and hats and back packs up and keep them of the floor.
Sit back and relax and enjoy the fantastic service.
Confirm specific details as what you are told is not what is always delivered 24 of us where traveling together. Was told we will be dining together but the reality is we where scattered all over the place. Felt that we had to argue our point to get what we where promised Dont believe what guest services tell you its not always correct the dont know alot of things that they sould
Fantastic staff, food and drinks. A great way to relax!
Explore the ship on the first day so you don't miss anything. There are some great venues on-board. If you can afford it, visit Chops at least once. It was truly wonderful. Also note that the waiters there went out of their way if you were celebrating a birthday or anniversary (we weren't but they would sing and bring candles). Very nice touch to make someone feel special on their important day.
Take cash for you shore excursions, that is the currency of that place. We didnt find out before we left and didnt take nearly enough.
Take small Aussie bank notes to use on the islands in the South Pacific. They all are happy to receive $5 and $10 aussie notes - not coins. You only need US$ for onboard the ship. Everything bought on the ship goes on your Sea Pass and you either settle that account with US$ or your credit card.
If having breakfast at the Windjammer buffet, don't miss the personalised omelette station.
Don't go the ship needs to be taken out service we spent seven thousands for crappy ship
Make use of what is on offer. You don't NEED to pay for anyting extra.
Relax and enjoy
Not too bad.
To embrace all the ship has to offer. Enjoy it all Various tips as to what to pack and not to pack. Participate in as much as you can. Be pleasant and patient especially with the lifts and people. Just love the time on board as it’s over before you know it. Would love to do another whole family cruise at some stage. Thank you RC
It was the biggest at the time we sailed it.
Remember that there are only a few hours between the end of one cruise and the beginning of the next and that the ship is constantly on the water, so you will inevitably see some wear and tear. It is a lovely ship and hard to believe it is 19.
