We wanted to experience Christmas on a cruise ship and we live in Perth so seemed the best option.The ship was great and the food good but we experienced bad weather going out and a cyclone coming back so that put a damper on it.The entertainment staff were absolutely amazing and kept us entertained most of each day.They worked very very hard. Our room was comfy and spacious with plenty of storage space. We bought the drinks package which was well worth it as it included half price coffees and tomato juice which we had a lot of(bloody or virgin) . We are not seasick travelers so that didn't worry us but it did a lot of others.This of course is not the cruise company's fault but if I went again I would choose a calmer time of the year and forget about Christmas.The best part were the shows and quizzes

Good but
