Embarkment at Sydney was a long long snake line & took a great deal of time to board. Disembarkation was a breeze. Take your own bags off, super fast. Take extra cloths! As there is only a laundry service for a small bag that cost Aprox $37 US. No laundries for guests to use Very hard when you travel with children Everything is charged in US dollars. Take some washing soap so you can wash out small's. Food was fantastic! Rooms kept tidy always, great service. Shows outstanding. I fly I didn't know that each guest only has one turn for 1 min for the entire cruise. So have that camera ready to capture the action. Or you will miss it like I did! Please note when travelling with grandchildren with a different surname as yours. Have that guardianship letter from the parents with all that is stated in the guide lines. It must be certified by a JP. Ports: Wellington was a nightmare to get off the ship. Took us one & half hours for our turn to go ashore, get that number early. Other ports were easy to go off the ship the locals were organised with the buses. The adults only section with the beautiful pools & spar's closes at 6pm

No Laundry for guest's to use.

We were happy with the cabin on deck 3 as it was near everything.
Our cabin attendant was outstanding!
