March 2016 - Noordam to South Pacific - Australia
The food was good but not always great.
The service was excellent.
Spa Service was wonderful
The entertainment was good but not great
We crossed from New Zealand to Australia in a Gale; the waves were 11-30 feet; it was exciting and a little scary; frequent weather updates were not reassuring.
Large Library; Cooking classes; Computer and Camera classes; Mixology classes
Supplied over-priced medically needed distilled water and then slapped a bar surcharge on it to add insult to injury. Of the 7 other cruise lines that I have been on, none charged for distilled water.
Lido deck closed regularly, had limited hours, and limited coffee access
They kept laying new carpet in major hallways (at night) but I expected this kind of work to be done when ship is docked for "repairs"
5 ports on the first five days of the cruise left me exhausted; I will look at this more carefully in the future. If it were not listed on the elevator floor, I truly wouldn't know what day it was.
Room Service was great.
