Embarkation was a breeze and no wait really whatsoever. Sydney port is congested but we got through it very fast. We were booked in a Mini Suite on this Royal Class ship and found it to be in perfect order. They have added more electrical sockets and USB ports which are very nice.
The ship is new and it shows it. The layout is just beautiful and the inside center is massive. We found the service from all personnel more than outstanding. Normally you can find something to nitpick, but that was not the case here.
The food was also excellent and I really liked the variety at the buffet, especially when they changed items out during the breakfast, instead of getting the same things over and over.
