This was an 8 night cruise from Sydney to Melbourne, Hobart then back to Sydney. Boarding was easy and painless, about the best cruise line we have experienced for this. The ship is new, clean and despite it's large size it never seemed crowded or that big. There is a large central atrium with 3 surrounding levels. There are a selection of various shops on the top level, restaurants on the middle level and bars and a cafe at the bottom with guest services as well. The top level in the atrium extends forward and back through the entire ship. The princess theatre where the main shows are presented is on one level and seems a bit small compared to other ships and certainly for a ship of this size. There is large lounge (Vista Gaming) at the rear of the ship where other shows are presented. Shows were good. We occupied ourselves with the regular trivia events which are great way to meet with people. Speciality restaurants- the Crown Grill steak house is good,the Harmony Chinese restaurant is certainly not for everyone. The normal restaurants were fine and the World Fresh Marketplace buffet is as you would expect-busy. Food quality was good but variety not so good- very little daily change in the buffet. We selected anytime dining and met some entertaining fellow travellers from all over the world. Compared with other cruise lines I did not find the crew generally that friendly this time. The dining room service could be slow, not sure if this is due to less staff? The lifts were always busy and pretty slow. Beer prices are not too bad but spirits and cocktails are too high. We had a day at Port Arthur which was the brilliant and this was accessed by tender- well organised. At the other ports we did our our own excursions. The cabin was a reasonable size, comfy bed, large TV, big walk-in wardrobe leading to a bathroom. Always kept clean by Rodrigo. Air-conditioning was efficient. The balcony was small as usual and not used. Disembarking was also very quick- brilliant.

Cabin Review

Balcony (obstructed view)

Still new looking, it was clean and comfortable. Lots of clothes hangers!! Big screen TV with live and on-demand programmes. Good new movie selection. Room was cool and the location on the 8th level was quiet with access to the main part of the ship starting 1 floor down on level 7. Smallish balcony which was never used, view was good.
