  1. With the advent of the coronavirus pandemic we must all, sadly, forget going on cruise ships for a while. However, they can take the girl out of the cruise ships but they can’t take cruise ships out of the girl. So if I cannot go on my favourite vacation then I will sail back in time and revisit one of the most magical trips we have ever taken, and I invite anyone who is interested to sail along with me and enjoy the highs and lows of our trip to Singapore, Sydney and Fiji, which took place in October 2019. It is with some trepidation that I start my first trip report. I hope you will be kind to me as it is the first, and maybe the last review I will ever do. The views expressed are my own and mine alone, and what I describe is a snapshot of what happened to me, and should not influence anyone in their decisions about future cruises. What I love, others may hate, what they hate I might love, so please bear with me. I know, without a doubt, that people’s experiences of the same ship can differ widely, according to their own perceptions and requirements. So forgive me if my views differ from yours, that’s just life. I realise that not all of you can afford the time to take such a long vacation, and the antipodes may not be everyone’s choice, but I hope to be able to give you a few tips along the way. If you have any questions, please ask, and I’ll do my best to answer them. I’m not a cheerleader for any ship or cruise line. I have never been on a cruise I didn't enjoy, even though there may have been parts I liked better, loved more, or disliked more. When I pay for a cruise company for my little piece of cruise heaven I do not believe they feel sorry for me, or want to give me more than I paid for, nor do I feel sorry for them if something goes wrong. Whilst I fully accept that cruising has limitations - cancelled ports, blocked loos, bad weather and rough seas I do believe that the cruise line should do everything they can to give me what I paid for, and if they can’t then they should do their best to make me feel they have tried. I accept that the cruise lines are not my best friends, they are commercial operations with the sole and express desire to make money. As such I know they will pare back all they can, but I still feel that cruising is one of the best vacations ever, and I long to feel the warmth of the sun on my face as I stand on my balcony watching the sea, and experiencing yet another wonderful sunset or sunrise. But perhaps first I should introduce ourselves. We are fit and active (at the moment) over 60s, DH in his early 70s, me getting there way too fast, although in my head I’m still a young and dizzy teenager who fell in love with cruising, and who has been addicted ever since. We both still work part time and this funds our cruising passion - or it did before coronavirus reared it’s ugly head. This addiction actually started in 1966, when my parents took me on my first cruise, on the wonderful old Australis, owned by Chandris, who are now Celebrity (hence the white cross on a blue background on the funnels). The Australis was by no means luxurious, she was by then quite old. I can still remember the ‘ship’ smell - engine oil, kitchen odours etc, which no longer exist on the beautiful new ships, but I fell in love with her the minute we stepped onboard. Australis spent the winter on the lucrative ‘£10 pom’ immigrant run, but in the summer she sailed the Mediterranean, ‘South to the Sun!’ SS AUSTRALIS FROM A POSTCARD GIVEN ONBOARD As we left Southampton the band of the Royal Marines serenaded us from the dockside, and we threw streamers from the deck. As the brochure said ‘Streamers Stream as the Ship Sets Sail!’ (Try saying that after a couple of glasses of Prosecco!) It was so exciting that we almost felt as if we were emigrating, as people stood on land to wave us goodbye. My sister and I shared a cabin just above the water line with no en-suite, linoleum on the floor, and a small round porthole so close to the sea that the waves would splash against it constantly as we streamed along. Indeed, one evening the steward covered the porthole with a metal cover and we knew we were in for a rough night. We had to walk down the corridor to shared showers and toilets but we didn't care. It was the most exciting holiday we’d ever been on and the sounds and sights and smells of cruising still live in my memory, even now, over 54 years later. OUR CABIN WAS LIKE THE TOP ONE ALTHOUGH WE HAD TWO LOWER BERTHS. THERE WERE SHARED FACILITIES, ONE SHOWER AND 3 TOILETS FOR LADIES AND THE SAME FOR THE GENTLEMEN. There were no buffets, all meals were taken in the dining room, and apart from a Greek bouzouki group, the Athenians, the entertainment was mainly by a small entertainments crew. We relaxed on the enclosed Promenade Deck on wooden loungers and every morning a trolley would arrive bearing bouillon, served from an urn in little cups. There were a few midnight buffets served on the Promenade Deck, where the creativity of the pastry chefs was highlighted, with wonderful sugar models of the ship and Sydney Harbour Bridge. We dressed for dinner each night and we often stayed in ports until late. Since then I have enjoyed over 60 cruises, many of them with my husband, who accompanied me on our first cruise together, and his first cruise ever, when my parents took us on a cruise on Chandris SS Britannis the year after we were married - 1973. In fact my parents had cruised on honeymoon in 1935, so it must have been in the genes. We are Elite with Princess, Diamond with RCI and have sailed with Celebrity, NCL, P &O, Cunard, and even one Carnival cruise where we experienced our first balcony. Every one different, but each one had things we loved. We love the ‘big girls’ such as the Oasis Class of ships, but equally we are happy onboard the Vision Class ships, and had three lovely cruises onboard the old Monarch of the Seas. Each ship had its own magic. Princess is, perhaps, our favourite cruise line as somehow when we step onboard its like coming home. We love the wonderful staff, the amazing food, the calm ambience, the afternoon teas, the calorific desserts and of course the soufflés. But for entertainment and amazing mind blowing ships it has to be Royal Caribbean which comes a very close second. With the arrival of our three children, cruising took a back seat, until in 1997, we took two of them on a Christmas cruise on the brand new Enchantment of the Seas, and they were ‘hooked’ too. (In case you are asking if we accidentally left number 3 ‘Home Alone,’ she was a stubborn teenager who thought cruising was for decrepit over 80s, and she preferred to spend Christmas with her friend’s family). Enchantment of the Seas was sparkling, full of white marble, crystal and brass. All meals were taken in the dining room, and tablecloths were different colours for lunch and dinner - pink for lunch if I remember rightly. Our nighties were draped into exotic shapes each night, a starfish one night, a rose another, and there were towelling animals too. The children thought they’d died and gone to heaven. This is the only cruise where we got upgraded on embarkation day, when DH and I were given an outside cabin opposite the children’s inside cabin. What luxury! There were amazing midnight buffets each and every night, culminating in a spectacular buffet in the main Dining Room with ice carvings, wax statues and all manner of beautifully presented food. Those days are long gone of course. Our daughter later went on to work for a British cruise company as a Food and Beverage Manager, following her degree course. Since then we have cruised regularly.
  2. Does anyone have anything good, or bad to say about the far forward deluxe balcony cabins on Riviera deck on the Majestic (or Regal, or Royal if push comes to shove. The deck plans seem to indicate that these cabins are mostly connecting cabins on the Regal and Royal and that is a no-no for me)? Cruise critic search sucks, hence my question. I’m looking at a cruise next year on the Enchanted. Suites are all gone, except the Sky suite, which is just a smidge above my budget (if a smidge can be considered around $20K USD! 🙂 ) There are no club class minis available, so I’ll make do with a balcony. The ship in general is pretty full, but I noticed that 9 out of 10 of the DE forward deluxe balcony cabins on Riviera are available, which would give me the impression that there is something wrong with these cabins? I saw a view view from the balcony of R202 online (the only 1 of the 10 that is taken) and it does look as if these cabins are pretty close to the bridge overhangs. Anything else I should be concerned about? My cruise would be a 14 cruise, with lots of sea days, so the sofa in a deluxe balcony would be a definite plus.
  3. Why is the Majestic only scheduled until March, when the rest of the fleet goes out at least six months? Thanks.
  4. I’m not even sure where to begin with this review as I’ve never felt compelled to leave such negative feedback about a cruise, let alone whilst I’m still on the ship! A bit about me first, I’m 31 and considered ‘quite young’ to be passionate about cruising however this most recent cruise (which I am still currently onboard) Majestic Princess is my 9th cruise in all, 4th on Princess. Other lines I’ve enjoyed time with have included Cunard, Holland America & Royal Caribbean. I consider myself a ship enthusiast, I love the history of passenger shipping hence what draws me to modern day cruises. I’ve always been such a strong advocate of cruising and have become known in my circle as ‘the cruise guy’, so I’m often helping friends book their first cruises after telling them of my fantastic experiences. We decided to book Majestic Princess departing Sydney, February 4th for an 8 day trip around Tasmania. We also asked my parents to join us onboard for the trip which they agreed. This is their second cruise, they first cruised 4 years ago on the Golden Princess and absolutely loved it. I chose Majestic because of how new it is and it looks great in Princesses marketing campaigns. Unfortunately that’s about the only positives I have to say. I truly hate to sound like one of those people who just complain about everything but like I said, I’ve never felt this way about any cruise before as I love cruising. I just feel that based on this experience, Princess have completely turned me off any future cruises with them and certainly any ever again on Majestic, maybe even any ship in the Carnival Corp Fleet?. I’m a realist, I know the world isn’t perfect and I’m a very understanding and polite person. To be honest, even on past cruises when there have been negatives, I’ve completely brushed them under the rug due to my passion for ships, I’ve made excuses for cruise lines but I’m not doing that this time. It’s time to point out the flaws so that others can be truly informed about the current state of Princess Cruises. Embarkation: The quickest embarking process I’ve ever experienced which was great and certainly helped fuel the excitement of our trip! We were onboard within 10 minutes of arriving to the terminal. They lost my mums suitcase which she got quite worried about, being so new to cruising this is understandable. I tried to calm the situation by telling her it will turn up soon and to wait however eventually she had to go down to the guest services desk and ask after it. To which she then had to find it herself out of a pile of ‘missing bags’. She was also told by a staff member ‘why are you worrying it’s not a big deal.’ When she was worried about it. My fathers brand new suitcase also arrived to the room with one of the wheels snapped off almost fully. He then stayed up till 3am the first night trying to repair it himself using my mums eyebrow tweezers as a screw driver in their mini suite. Stateroom: Mini suite A226. I’ve only ever travelled in suites or ‘mini/junior suites’ so the room was as expected however, compared to Golden Princess and other ships I’ve sailed, Majestic Princess mini suites are not the greatest. Certainly the smallest balcony I’ve ever had, seriously it’s about 1m deep? The layout is extremely similar to the Grand Class ships but slightly updated. I prefer the older version. The bathrooms are also small for a suite and really should have been addressed when designing this new class of ship. The toilet in the suite was acting a bit strange from when we boarded. It often wouldn’t flush properly or would take a minute after pushing the button to then flush. Eventually it stopped working completely mid cruise and had to be fixed. The bed is not comfortable at all. I read so many reviews saying how good the beds are, really!? My plush mattress at home is way more comfortable. The ship: Yes she’s a pretty ship, the decor and the colour scheme inside is very contemporary and nice. Layout is shocking, I absolutely cannot stand everything being focussed around the Piazza area. For such a grand, lovely space, I was sick of it by day two. Deck areas are nice with lots of couches and lounges and the pools and spas all great however, the Enclave area is not fully functional, one of the saunas doesn’t work and not all the jets in the pool are working. Not something I would normally complain about, however when are these cruise lines going to question whether it is right to charge passengers full price to use these facilities that are not fully operational or as promised? That’s wrong. I’ll also note that the hull is very rusty and dirty and is in need of painting. Obviously this is hard on a ship and I get it takes time etc but have some pride in the ships external appearance. It says a lot about the standards onboard. Staff/service: This is the major let down of this ship, I can honestly say I’ve never experienced such an uninspiring, careless, unhappy mob of workers on a ship, the attitude of the staff have been the biggest let down. This ship has such a strange vibe, it just doesn’t feel right onboard. None of the staff are warm & friendly. Everyone seems pained to be working onboard and every simple request eg; ‘Hello, how are you today? Can I please buy a drink..?’ You are made to feel like you have bothered them. Even if they are completely not doing anything or serving anyone else at all. To be honest, I was confused as to whether the staff were all just on holiday because they all seem to just loiter around talking to each other and ignoring passengers. Restaurant staff, unprofessional and rude with no idea about the food or drinks or basic manners such as apologising when your meal arrives after everyone else at the table has finished eating there’s, this included the waiters in the Chops Grill paid restaurant who basically were too busy to even ensure we had a pleasant experience. We felt bad for even being there. Bar staff all shocking and no customer service skills at all. Not even general politeness such as ‘Hello, how are you?’ or recognition of you after constantly seeing the same bar person day after day. To be honest I’ve spent more time saying hello and asking how staff are than any of them have with me. Spa staff (after paying $150 to attended the Enclave daily) never even look up from the desk when we arrive to go in, it’s actually become quite amusing now as I’m being extra super friendly above what I normally am just to see if it makes them change their tune, no luck. They can barely look at us or say more than a grunt. Don’t expect to be served on deck either if you are in one of the deck spas. We jumped in one to watch the daily movie on the outdoor screen at night, we never got asked once whether we wanted a drink and when I flagged down two girls standing near by, they gave me the most horrible look as if I have bothered them. Do these staff even want to make any money for Princess anymore!? It seems when you want a drink no one cares, when you’re willing spend hundreds on drinks and have a good night/day, no one cares. The Captain & cruise director, who? Never seen them or felt engaged by either, unlike other ships where you often see them out and about ensuring passengers are enjoying themselves. In fact, all ‘management’ are hidden, good luck finding any of them. Room attendant is friendly enough when we pass him in the hall however, he’s cleaning skills are next to none. There are still items in the room left over from the previous guests such as an asthma puffer that was in the bathroom and is yet to be removed. Our used pool towels not removed or empty bottles. He also leaves the room in total darkness every night and just throws the chocolates on the bed and leaves them wherever they land. My parents have a different steward and apparently she is lovely though and does a great job. The culture with the staff on this ship is awful, I work in Customer Service myself so I’m very aware of the lack of standards which I can assure you start at the top and work their way down through the staff. The way the staff even carry themselves and stand shows the lack of care factor. I’m shocked managers don’t also see this but maybe they do and this is apparently acceptable? Entertainment/atmosphere: Another Major let down. Where is the atmosphere!? I’ve never been on such a dull cruise.. When we left Sydney harbour at 6:45 on a beautiful Australian summers evening the band played for 15 minutes before they were removed and the 7 o’clock outdoor movie began which completely cleared the deck. What a weird thing to do on the first evening of the cruise when passengers expect a sail away party. Being the first night of the cruise it really set the tone for what was ahead. The band have not been up on deck since! No matter how lovely the weather is, speaking of weather, so far we have been blessed with beautiful smooth sailing and lovely days so I’m not sure why there is nothing happening on deck during the days/nights other than the movie which probably gets about 10 people per viewing. I think one movie at night would be fine and more attention should be paid to entertaining guests by the pool with music etc. Most entertainment takes place in the Piazza, which is so weird. The Piazza has specialty restaurants and bars off it so if you’re trying to enjoy a nice meal or a classy drink, you’ll have to put up with the noise coming from the Piazza. But don’t worry, everything pretty much stops at 10pm. Don’t expect to be doing anything after that time, it’s all basically shut down. There is no night club on this ship for night owls or people looking to have a good late night dance on their holidays.. Ridiculous. There are so many people wondering around after 10pm unsure of what to do but not wanting to go to bed, but you basically have no other option. Food: I personally feel the standards have dropped for Princess. Menus are uninspiring and dishes made with no love. Desserts especially have been a big let down as they’re so boring and almost child like food. Jelly in the main dining room as one of the four desert options, the others being bread and butter pudding, ice cream or a lime tart. We were also not impressed with Chops Grill having had such a wonderful meal on our last Princess cruise (Golden Princess 2 years ago) we were looking forward to a high end feed. The food was average to poor along with the service. To be honest, a waste of $35 per person. I was asked how I wanted my steak, medium/rare and I received well done. Really, at a steak restaurant?. Room service menu is also the exact same menu they’ve had for 10+ years.. Apparently they can’t think of anything else. Breakfast in room is only continental, so don’t expect any eggs/bacon in bed. I also wanted to note that if you’re watching the late night movie under the stars that starts usually around 9:30 the grill and noodle bars on deck shut at 10pm sharp (NO EXCEPTIONS) so if you feel like a snack half way through the movie, too bad. Why wouldn’t you keep them open to match the movie running time? Ps: don’t expect drink service during the movie and don’t do what we did and sit in a spa to watch the movie. They won’t come over to you, you will have to get out to order drinks. Tender service: This is actually what compelled me to review this cruise. This was the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. We had one tendered port on this cruise and that was at Port Arthur. What an absolute joke that whole experience was. It started off fine, tenders leaving the ship from around 7:30am, we decided to leave for shore around 11am which we thought was good as we didn’t have to wait to get on a tender, we got on one almost straight away, then from that moment the issues became clear. After leaving the ships side, we were still on the tender 1hr later waiting to dock at the shore! The trip to the shore itself took around 5-10 minutes however they were only docking one tender at a time at a dock that was also shared by other boats doing tours of the harbour from Port Arthur. We sat there in the water for an hour waiting to dock, there were 4 tenders at once doing as we were. When it was our turn to dock, we noticed the horrifically long line of guests waiting to get back on tenders to come back to the ship! I actually took photos which I have included below, the line must have been 300m long, we couldn’t see the end of it. It looked like an evacuation but no, it was just Princesses complete mismanagement of the situation docking one tender at a time for 3500 guests. We decided to not even get off the tender and take it straight back to the ship due to how hectic the situation looked. My parents were on the tender in front of us and waited as long as we did to dock, it also took their driver 6 attempts to dock their tender correctly. In perfectly calm and flat waters. They then got off the tender (not knowing they could stay on) and jumped straight back in the line to get a tender back to the ship as they were worried they would have to wait so long. It took them 1hr of waiting in line to get back on a tender. So all in all they spent nearly 3hrs to tender to shore and come straight back. We literally missed Port Arthur, because of how horrible the experience was. There was no apologies or acknowledgement of what was happening. No mention from any of the staff that the wait times had blown out, no mention from the captain when we departed Port Arthur at the end of the day, nothing. Not even a free apology from anyone... What on earth has happened to Princess Cruises? I guess I will leave my review there. As I said, I know the world isn’t perfect and I know that some people will just find anything to complain about but I am not that person. I consider myself an advocate of the cruise industry however, after this experience I am even questioning now whether I will ever cruise again. I know my parents will not, after such a positive first cruise with Princess, their second cruise has been a nightmare and I doubt they will return. We confronted the duty manager today at the Guest Services desk about our concerns and experience in a very polite and collected way and would you believe, he agreed with all criticisms and was not only shocked by some but was well aware of most as he himself has seen it with his own eyes but he had also had a number of complaints on this cruise. I wanted to leave this review because although I love cruising, I understand how big business works and as customers, we are not doing ourselves any favours by not exposing the negative truths! I feel too many cruise passengers just stay silent and put up with poor cruises and I think that is wrong. These cruises are not cheap, you are promised the world and yet they can blatantly fail to deliver, take your money, kick you off at the end and take on the next lot.. It’s just not right. I feel Princess, perhaps all of Carnival Cruise Corp to be honest have a new attitude of ‘Oh well, near enough is good enough..’ well we as paying guests should not accept that. We are spending big money on these cruises and we also have a choice as to whether we even cruise or not and I feel like we are being taken advantage of. Perhaps the cruise industry has gotten too big for its boots and has lost touch with reality? Well if this is the acceptable standard, I can assure them that there won’t be a cruise industry in the not too distant future as the younger set, the cruises of tomorrow will take their money elsewhere when they wish to holiday. I’m sorry for such a long and negative review but I felt compelled to share as this particular cruise on Majestic Princess has completely ruined my faith in cruising. Only 3 more sleeps and we can get off and go home! What a horrible mindset to be in whilst you’re on holiday. I’m so disappointed by this cruise that I actually feel upset that we even came and I feel stupid for wasting our money.
  5. Has anyone got information on what has happened to the Majestic Princess? SWEBY
  6. Does anyone know why the Majestic Princess is in dry dock?
  7. Im just wondering if anyone can tell me how many people does the Princess Theatre cater for on the Majestic Princess please?
  8. Received late Feb 15/2020 VOYAGE REDEPLOYMENT - 16 FEBRUARY 2020 - MAJESTIC PRINCESS Due to lack of predictability regarding port availability in our Southeast Asia itineraries, we have made the decision to end your voyage in Fremantle on Saturday, 22 February 2020. Your Princess Air flights will be rebooked to depart from Perth Airport and your new flights will be communicated onboard. In recognition of these changes, all guests that sail on this voyage will receive a refund equal to 60% of the cruise fare paid to the original form of payment. Guests that choose to cancel will receive a 100% refund of all charges paid to the original form of payment. All guests will also receive a Future Cruise Credit equal to 50% of the cruise fare paid (future cruise must sail by February 28, 2021). Guests who incur charges for non-refundable expenses can visit www.princess.com/refund-request for a list of reimbursable expenses and details on submitting a refund request. Please note that the itinerary below does not yet reflect these changes. This portion of the cruise is 15 days, (started out from Sydney on Feb. 12 as a 19 day cruise) if sailing and getting off in Perth, you get 60% of cruise fare refunded or don’t sail for 100% and I have yet to clarify if this includes airfare booked through Princess. Waiting until midnight in a few minutes to call Princess US from Melbourne, probably opting to cancel. Better this than the Diamond Princess scenario.
  9. Has anyone had any experience with these cabins?
  10. Cruises 8005F to 8011N cancelled, basically up to April 2nd. And I just paid 8053 (August) off!! Anticipate stock retreating another 10-15% if Asia spring is cancelled
  11. We will be travelling on the Majestic soon and wonder if the large plastic tumblers are part of the soda packages? Our last voyage in October we did receive the improved tumbler (requires no straw), and wondering if I should pack it for this trip. Thanks for your help.
  12. We are booked on an Australian cruise in Feb 2020 on Majestic Princess. Does anyone know if you can pay for a bottled water package. The only packages I can find are the alcoholic ones. We are going to buy a new grounds coffee package. If you cant buy a package does anyone know how much bottled water is to buy? thanks.
  13. Hi there! I am hoping that someone in Cruise Critic land can help me out ... I am trying to find out the specific name of a suite on the Majestic Princess - D727. Google has been of no use, Princess themselves aren't able to help with specifics like this, and I stupidly didn't take a photo of the little plaque on the door. Can anyone shed some light for me? Much appreciated.
  14. We are going on the Majestic Princess in February and I know I can pre-purchase the coffee card before we cruise, but I wanted to know can I buy it on board, and is it the same price?
  15. We will be going on the Majestic Princess in January. Sydney-Fiji. Does anyone know if there is Internet connectivity or Wifi available? All my searches show that Wifi is not yet available. If no Wifi, does that then also mean we can not utilize all of the benefits of the Medallion? Also, since we are Canadian but sailing from Australia, would there be an automatic gratuity added for us? I understand sailings from Australia are exempt.
  16. Hi Everyone I was wondering if anyone could tell me if they offer the Ernesto burger anywhere else on the majestic, since they don’t have salty dog. Thank you
  17. We will be on the Majestic Princess AKL - SYD on Dec. 27-Jan 8. If you have recently sailed on this ship, would you please let me know if the shampoo and conditioner in the room is of any quality or should I bring my own. ( I do not like the dispenser type that hang on the wall in the shower ) . Thank you SO much,
  18. We are cruising on Majestic Princess on 27th November up the coast of Australia. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with Majestic Princess and docking procedures? Specifically we have a private tour at Airlie Beach (Seaplane Tour) and Im wondering if there is a way to ensure we can disembark at an appropriate time? Its a tender docking. Im assuming tours booked onboard get some kind of priority but how does this work?
  19. Booked a cruise around New Zealand in November 2020 on the Majestic Princess. We are new to the Princess Cruise Line so advice on what to expect from Dining to Excursions, Service charges, dress code please. Not into sun bathing. Any Insider tips please. Will be celebrating married for 44 years. Many thanks
  20. Has anyone stayed in stateroom E631on the Majestic Princess and have photos showing the view out the window? Thanks! Tom😎
  21. Looking for anyone who has sailed the Majestic and has stayed in the two aft OS suites on Emerald Deck (E728/E729) or anyone who may have pictures of these two suites. I've done an exhaustive search of the net (cruise ship deck plans included) and have come up empty..... Thanks in advance for any replies.....:):):) Bob
  22. Can someone confirm for me the type of internet the Majestic has on board? I've seen some posts say that it has the PrincessConnect social, surf and premium plans and some posts that say it still has the by the minute packages. Thanks!
  23. We will be on the Majestic Princess this month and I noticed that the location of the Captain's Circle and Future Cruise areas aren't shown on the deck plans. I know that this ship was geared to the Chinese market and is different than other Royal class ships, but I've also read that they change the purpose of some of the venues when she is sailing from Australia. I will need to make a visit to both on this cruise and was just curious where these desks may be.
  24. We are booked on Majestic Princess for a cruise from Sydney to New Zealand in November 2019. I have a few queries please. Are alcoholic drinks charged in USD, AU or NZ currency, please? Paper work indicates we can board at 4.30pm. As we arrive in Sydney earlier in the morning, are we able to board earlier, even if there is a fee to pay? Husband is somewhat limited in mobility and we would not wish to have to walk around Sydney, more than is necessary. With anytime dining is it necessary to prebook a chosen time on the first day we board? (We were required to do this on another cruise line) Can anyone enlighten me on internet access quality and costs please.
  25. Evening, Anyone stayed in this Stateroom? Pros and Cons if any please. TIA Anjo.
