We actually chose this cruise because it was a last minute special, no other reason. The decor is Las Vegas on sea, it takes a little getting used to the lavish decorations but hey, you are on a holiday and bland is not exiting. Our luggage was delivered to the cabin after an easy check in, smooth embarkation process. The cabin was fine, lots of room for clothes etc and a balcony actually big enough for sitting on, our cabin steward was polite and helpful. There is a lot of food and drink on board, free drinks include ice water, ice tea, coffee, hot chocolate, orange juice and apple juice all day. Alcoholic drinks are pricy but as there is no daily charge or enforced tipping on this ship it is still affordable to have a great time, prices are about the same as at a nicer venue on land in Australia. Free food includes good pizza to well after 11pm, hamburgers, tacos and wraps made to order on deck. The buffet is similar each day with several different stations serving foods as in seafood, sandwiches etc. Think Siz***rs. The sit down restaurant serves breakfast lunch and dinner, it is a little hit and miss but the good thing of course is that if you meal is not to your liking you just ask your waiter and a different meal turns up for you. We never asked for another meal. Every evening the waiters dance for you and there are theme nights during the cruise with the dining room decorated and special dishes on the menu. We had a Chefs table dinner which is served in the kitchen between the excitement of the kitchen. Amazing food and all drinks included. This was the highlight of our cruise and well worth the $120 per person it cost. It made for an extra special night as we chose formal night to do this. The entertainment on board includes things like games and quizzes during the day and a show at night as well as late night comedy. We went to all of these and had hardly any time left to read a book. The shows are great, we went to some twice. I have to say the last night was a rock and roll night and you would have to buy a pricy ticket to go see a show this good on land. Our cruise director Jen was on hand when needed and it seems she had 3 doubles walking around, she was just everywhere. My husband and I are in our early 60 so had no kids with us this time but as we are thinking of bringing our grandchildren some times we went down to the kids club to have a talk to the parents and they all seemed happy, so did the kids. The only remark was to wait till the youngest is over 2 as there are no facilities for younger children. Over all, we enjoyed our cruise and would go on this ship again, there is a good mix of all ages on board and something to do for everyone.

Fun ship for young and old.
