Our cruise left from Circular Quay in Sydney so we flew down the day before and met up with my
2 daughters and their spouses and my 3 grandchildren who flew in from Adelaide to join Fred and myself for the cruise.
The ship was huge it is 963 ft long with decks 2 to 10 for the sailing guest which number 2124 when full and approximately a 1000 crew to look after us and believe you me the staff do an excellent job, always smiling and helpful whatever the problem.
I won't list everything on the ship as this post will go on for ever but there were a heap of eateries, bars and entertainment areas to suit the different ages from very young to very mature.

every night we had a different towel animal on our bed

Our first port of call was Noumea and it was my least favourite stop of the whole cruise take away the different language I could have been at home, my view may have been tainted by it being sunday and nothing very much was open but suffice to say I probably won't return.
