I swear it was the shit dude.
We paid $650 ea for 4 nights and we now know we got hosed somewhat. But ffs it was a bargain regardless.
For our next one, the name of the game is to be on the ship for $100-$130 per head per night.
(which was all meals at 2 places, one a la carte (which was pretty damn good) and something akin to a food court in the other. Which has its place in the world, but didnt take too long to get a bit over it.
there were other venues that you could pay extra to dine at. we didnt this trip, but they did look quite good value considering you were paying extra.
We are pretty big drinkers & holidays will see us putting in overtime.
Ima beer guy and wifey is a wine ho.
To give you an idea, it was $7 for pure blondes (my local dive wants $7.30) & it was $40 for a nice bottle of red that we were fond of. ($20 at dans)
We had the odd margarita, jack and coke, and johnnie black. however it was very few TBH.
But I was drunk offa my ass for 4 days and we didnt spend $100 per head per day.
Try to do that out in oz?
It was amazing, cool as fuck, I loved it. I saw peeps being as rude as fuck to the staff and it was so not necessary. The staff were better than anything we get here unless you pay 5 star. However cruising is so cheap that many people who may or may not be welfare recipients are travelling with you.
Even so you can have what ever sort of cruise you wish for.
We found many places where we could just have a great spot to drink and have a great time by ourselves. I couldnt believe the ship was full cause there were many premium spaces to have all to yourself.
I saw many, many young peeps looking very worse for wear after an evening on the party decks.
and I saw plenty of old people having a nice quiet time, and lots of families with kids.
Fuck that, we didnt talk to any of those fucks and we had a blast.
cant wait to do it again.
