This was my first cruise and I really enjoyed it. The food in the Regency dining room was of a high standard. The free coffee in the Horizon dining area was absolutely dreadful, so as a coffee lover the only alternative was to purchase coffee (which was much better). The NZ icecream shop was over-priced and there was no free alternative (other people said on other cruises there was free soft-serve). I felt the choice of entertainment was lacking a little, the shows we saw were great. The shore excursions were ok, though the weather in Phuket meant our trip to Phi Phi island was cancelled. Staff were all friendly and courteous. The fitness classes (yoga and pilates) were very similar and the instructor did not ask about any existing injuries or condition-which is important with older 50+ clients). Much better to do own thing on a quiet piece of deck. All in all a good budget introduction to cruising.
