Could have been better

Leaving from Adelaide was the big attraction as the norm is a flight to the eastern states to catch a cruise. The smaller ship was ok but limited your choice of places to go and rest or a bar for a quiet drink. I ...

Cruising on a budget but eating in style!

Low priced cruising 'English style' small ship. Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Instead of the usual gorgeous balcony cabin on a 5 or 6 star ship it was a totally budgeted choice. I can tell you the food on ...
