Thank you so much.
1. Definitely need a safe play area for children between 1 and 2. Children aged 2 and above (and there are no exceptions) can join the Kids Club which has a well resourced play area with good supervision. There is no provision made for children under 2, not even a small area with some toys where parents can take them and play with them. The result is children under 2 must play by their parents in areas which are not enclosed (the kids can run off) and not really safe or suitable for young children (access to lifts, swimming pools, stairs, kitchens etc).
2. Shore excursions were very expensive for what they were.
3. Dinning room needs more child chairs (there appeared to be only 1 for several hundred young children on my cruise) and perhaps a child safe area - like restaurants such as McDonalds have.
mostly cloudy, but we did get some sun time on the loungers and chairs available. The restaurants were
straight below, on Deck 3, or straight above, on Deck 9, and it was only 73 paces to the lifts. The Amber
Palace Theatre was in the bow, so we did have to walk a bit, but most sports were in the stern, or midships.
The second week, we had a cabin on Deck 2, right behind the midships lifts, so were close to most things.
There was plenty to do on the ship and we won trophies and medals at Table Tennis, Mini Golf and Quizzes,
so were rewarded for our efforts. The pools and spas were not too crowded and the temperatures were
good. The food catered for all tastes, was plentiful, and always available. The shore tours were mostly
excellent and good value for money, with a wide variety of activities available. The staff were excellent
and most helpful.
The trip I have mentioned above is a first for my husband, we have been married for nearly 3 years :). Mike hasn't cruised before so I thought we'd do a tester to how he likes it. So we went from Auckland to Sydney and although the weather wasn't that good, and maybe a little rough, we new that it would be before we left. He still loved the experience and we will cruise again definitely.
We are going on a cruise soon to the Pacific Islands again for me but first time for Mike on the 2nd of August. We fly to Brisbane and go from there....... can't wait.
We have recently been on another cruise with another company, Holland America, and although good their standards are not Cunard, so from now on every time we cruise it will be with Cunard - simplky the best.
Thanks so much.
