Astor Cruise Review by Pamf
- Sail Date: February 2018
- Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Although it was quite enjoyable and relaxing we would not sail with it again because the food whilst quite edible was only really nice on the first and last nights. It was made to a cheap price.
The one thing that was outstanding was the entertainment with a small group of really good singers and dancers and a fabulous cruise director called Katie.
We did not choose the weather but it would have been nice to be warmer. We spent a day in Melbourne a day and a half in Hobart and a day in Burnie.
We spoke to many other guests and if they had sailed on Princess like us they were not planning on another cruise with CMV
We were in an interior cabin which was quite nice but the beds were like rocks. Fortunately when I told our cabin steward he bought me another mattress to put on top and then it was ok.
There were some strange ideas that we have not seen on any other cruises for example you could not have soft eggs they had to be hard cooked or nothing. Also there was a table reserved for the captain every night at the show and we thought that was in poor taste as he should defer to the guests and not sit in front of them.
All in all it was a relaxing cruise but I would hate to do a long trip to Tillbury on it
