I've written a book about one of memorable cruises I've had, and I'd be delighted if you'd read it. It tells of a trip from Auckland to Southampton: Seventeen Seas, by Bronwyn Elsmore. See www.flaxroots.com/books
Last year, on a Dawn Princess cruise, I ran the book club discussions and they sold my books (Seventeen Seas and another) in the onboard boutique.
The cruise itself was wonderful and cannot say enough regarding how clean everywhere on the Ship was and the friendliness of all the crew. We booked a concierge class cabin and were more than happy with that. Food was excellent however the shows were a little dissapointing compared to other cruise lines we have travelled on.
The Indian Pacific from Perth to Sydney is another story. Unless you are a train buff be warned. The cabins are OK however once you have had breakfast the cabin is made up to a day room and after dinner (at 8pm) the cabin is made ready for bed (2 bunks where your seats were). After dinner there is nothing to do unless you want to sit in a very crowded bar. The train rattles and rolls and extremely noisy which makes it virtually impossible to sleep. The food was very good. Considering the fare for this train it is quite frankly a rip off!!!
Even had a drink on the top deck, by the grass. All staff efficient and a pleasure to deal with.
Cleanliness outstanding, we have no complaints whatever. A query though, Christmas Day never happened, not the traditional food etc that I was expecting, great decorations and carols. Fabulous New years eve.
Congratulations to all.
