I had previously travelled on this cruise in November 2015 with my wife, who has since recently passed away. Her last wishes were for me to complete this cruise as a memory of the previous one in 2015. I have experienced a wide variety fun by joining in with the activities and even being invited onstage by Russel Harrison a great singer as one of his backup dancers ! This was one of my favourite moments and the volunteering to join in with the Chef versus the Barman Challenge as the Chief Judge, another highlight. Overall the entertainment was First Class and the Entertainment Director Du Vaal is one of the best and always took time to talk and also his team were tops. Food was adequate and activities - one could choose what they wanted to do. Either join in with the program or totally relax - your individual choice. I was also lucky enough to meet a few wonderful people with whom I believe will be life long friends. Overall - A Great Cruise one I will never forget. Read Less

We left Sydney in glorious sunshine at an early 3.30pm. Boarding was easy and efficient. The overall condition of the ship was good, older but perfectly acceptable and no way near the condition some reviews indicated. We stopped at 6 ports and cruised around Fiordland for a day which was brilliant. It rained at all ports except 2 and rained pretty much the rest of the time- no fault of the ship/cruiseline. This did not really affect our enjoyment of the cruise. We have tried 3 other cruise lines and this unfortunately was the worst for food we have tried so far. The choice of food in the Horizon buffet was very limited and the lunch and breakfast options changed little each day - this became monotonous very quickly. There was a buffet line each side of the ship but they served the same food. The main dining room was better, but personally I found the dish selection again uninspiring with a lot of seafood dishes and not many meat options on the menu. I like seafood but my wife does not and I could see her point of view. Ships aircon seemed to make the ship warm then cool then warm again all the time. The shows were of a good standard, with a variety of acts. Entertainment during the day was good but not as good a Royal Caribbean. I thought the drinks prices for cocktails was high and the amount of alcohol in each drink was not generous- I tried a few. The staff were great and hard working. All the passengers we met had a great time and we arrived back in Sydney to glorious sunshine. Read Less

We have cruised many times with many cruise lines from the opulent to the mediocre we are very easy going and not hard to please but even we have out limits. Our cruise to NZ was a birthday milestone celebration and we saved hard to make it happen now we wish we had have saved a bit more and gone on another ship.- What a total disappointment. The food the first week on in the Horizon was fresh but three days before we were to disembark the quality went downhill rapidly. It tasted like leftovers revamped. As for the daily entertainment we had – 1.Paper plane competition -2.Teeth whitening -3. Bridge card game - 4. Hair straightening how to stop your hair frizzing – Yep- the excitement went on.- OMG- I was so bored I wanted to throw myself overboard. The toilets both public and cabin had non-stop problems passengers had an issue with either their toilet or their cabin including flooding. Then it was our turn to have a toilet disaster - Our toilet over flowed just before 8am having just woken up were like a deer in a headlight we were both not with it panicking trying desperately to stop the water overflowing but all to no avail, the water was cascading over the step like a waterfall . We quickly rang the pursers desk ran up and down the corridor in my Pyjamas looking for staff but the floor was deserted. Eventually some passengers come out to see me running around in my pjs, disgusted they kindly went to get help as well. Two phone calls later the steward finally shows up with a small cloth the size of a face flannel to mop up the water the the poor steward had a look of horror when he saw how bad the flooding actually was. We had to walk back into the room walk through the septic water to throw some clothes over Pyjamas go down stairs to the atrium where the front desk was. We must have looked a sight unwashed, bed hair and totally confused. I walked up to the Pursers desk told her our room was flooded and what will we do now? She just glared at me like I was totally inconveniencing her and said ` We are working on it`. Offended by her dismissive attitude I asked to speak to the her superior she said abruptly ` Go sit over there somewhere buy a coffee and wait the manager is busy.` We waited for hour and half before I walked back up to the desk and asked if we had been forgotten. The manager came out clearly on defense with her fake smile informed us she is aware of the problem I pointed out that we had out Pyjamas still on that we needed to shower and change. Reluctantly she went away came back with two Temporary cruise cards to go and shower in an EMPTY cabin BUT we can NOT sleep there we were to go back to our own cabins that evening. When we tried to explain how saturated our carpet was and why can’t we use the temporary room if its empty she said ` I don’t want to move you as its only two days till you disembark. They will make a decision later and someone will find us and let us know. 2.30 still walking around with our shower bag and pjs in a bag we went back to our old cabin to assess the situation the carpet was still totally saturated the musty smell was overpowering the carpet dryer was deafening and it was obvious that it was going to take a few days to dry it out properly. The water had seeped into the room next door as well. We went back to the purser’s desk ` Can we PLEASE change rooms? Sorry the manager is in a meeting I can’t make that decision you will have to come back at 5pm. I was ready to explode, I said ` R U Kidding? You have an empty cabin yet you want us to go back to a room that is clearly a Health Hazard do you understand it is Septic Water from the bloody toilet? It’s bad enough we had to walk through it in bare feet then breath in , Now you want us to sleep in in as well. ` Her reply` madam you will have to come back for the managers decision` - She did NOT care less and could make it more apparent. So the Temporary card they gave us were useless they kept being rejected due to NO number. So our id had to be confirmed before we could purchase a drink. Very embarrassing in front of other passengers to say the least. Finally after 9 hours of angst they finally decided to let us use the empty cabin. We had to go back to our old cabin and pack our suit cases and unpack them again in the new room. So its now 5pm . The room hadn’t been cleaned since we showered in the morning so cold soggy towels is all we had to dry ourselves. We were so exhausted we showered sat on the end of bed demoralized broke down and sobbed. - The manager had a bottle of wine sent to our room but it was a shallow token gesture too little too late. The way we were both treated is inexcusable; We can both honestly say that we have NEVER been treated with such contempt. The abrupt, dismissive and condescending attitude in which we were both treated made us feel like the Irish on the Titanic. Having cruised many times we are both members of the Loyalty points Captains Circle. One would ask ` Where is the loyalty and respect shown to the passengers? This has not been a relaxing trip we were both too scared to use our toilet so we would have to go to a public toilet to avoid any more embarrassment which is unforgivable. I have Multiple sclerosis and all the stress took its toll and I have relapsed; this was supposed to be a 60th birthday celebration what a disappointment. We cannot speak highly enough of the cabin stewards and the drink waiters who work hard long underpaid days they are worth their weight in gold. - This is more than I can say for the arrogant European front desk staff who have a severe superiority complex with a disgusting lack of people skills who abruptly talk down to the passengers with utter contempt as we were to find out first hand.
