A beautiful ship with great facilities. Sadly the entertainment was nowhere near what I had come to expect from RC.

NOT what we expected

May 29th, 2020

We went with friends. Flew to Sydney, for the cruise. Wasn't a fan of the ship, shows or most of the pushy rude people. We won't go on her again.

Wonderful Shortened Cruise

Apr 1st, 2020

Cruise cut short due to the Coronavirus. No ports visited, however can not fault the crew dedication to make sure we enjoyed the cruise. Captain Henrik absolutely amazing in such a scary time.

Our wonderful and lucky cruise

Mar 22nd, 2020

Beautiful ports of call, unfortunately we have to skip Dunedin. We are lucky that so far no passenger declared to be infected by covid 19, and we are the last group that is allowed to make call to New Zealand ports

Lucky to have been able to cruise around NZ. ( coronavirus). Huge ship, whilst clean and maintained, could do a couple of simple updates to rise to the expectation.
