Just missing a beat

  • Destination: the South Pacific

I chose this cruise from Sydney to Cairns as it was calling at smaller islands off the East Coast of Australia .

Somewhere along the line this ship was just missing a beat if it wants to be considered 5 star. The food was excellent with lots of French specialities. Same could not be said about the wine considering it was a French ship this was a great dissapoinment.Service was superb in the restaurant and bars but it was the next level of management where it fell down.

It's a very small ship which I knew but when we have sea days it's nice to be able to walk around the decks but there was no deck to do that. The pool deck area was very small.

Embarkation and disembarkation was very smoothly handled.

The cabins were small but well laid out and lots of storage space.

I think the ship needs a refurb. Some of the furniture in the main lounge was a bit well worn .
