Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2009
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand

We arrived in the city and we thought we would never get on the boat, there were 3 boats docked in Sydney at the same time so the traffic was mayhem. Once we got to the terminal we put our bags on the truck and went off to check-in. Check-in only took about 10 minutes so we were very happy. As soon as we got onto the ship we rushed up to our room, we had a mini-suite on the dolphin deck, we were amazed by the size of the room it was massive. Our bags took about an hour to get to our room but that didn't bother us.

That night i went off to the teen club and my dad went off to the bar. the party didn't start till 10:30pm, but you get used to going to bed late on a cruise ship. that night i made so many new friends we all just clicked instantly. we had a very fun night with all the activities.

I got home around 2am once the teen club shut we went and sat at the buffet and ate cookies. this became something we would do every night. That night the boat was very rocky and i didn't sleep very well. For the rest of the cruise the motion wasn't too bad. The formal nights were fun, there were parties and lots of dancing. For the second formal night i went and got my hair done at the spa.

The specialty restaurants are only good if you like ALOT of food otherwise the main dining room and other restaurants around the ship are really good. we went to Sante Fe most nights the burritos there were really nice.

The ports were not too bad although i preferred being on the ship than being at a port. All over i had the best time ever i made 4 best-friends that i will never ever forget and i cannot wait to go on my next cruise :)
