L'Austral Cruise Review by The Village Idiot

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand

We went to the Kimberleys, having embarked in Broome. We spent a few days in Broome and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

The Cabin was well appointed but somewhat small, however not really a problem

The naturalists and experts on the cruise were really fantastic. They were knowledgeable and friendly, and always willing to speak to passengers about their specialities The excursions ashore were really interesting, educational, extremely well organised and most enjoyable. Most of the on board lectures were very informative and interesting.

The food was Ok , not so fantastic, but the crew, and stewards were excellent and professional. For coffee afficionados there is definite room for improvement. Entertainment was usually scheduled a little too late, and we would have to wait around too long after dinner. However the on board entertainers were of a high standard and we enjoyed the shows that we attended

Our departure from the ship was very well organised and all went very smoothly for our group.

Cabin Review

Cabin bottom forgotten

Cabin was OK, but very small. How some of the bigger and heavier people got into the toilet will forever be a mystery to me.
