We where disappointed at being positioned near the side door as we are regular travellers on this vessel twice a year The service was good Meals good Yes we would have liked to be closer to the actual race Also this vessel should have a TV on this top deck rather than travel down a deck.

Service: Bright efficient personnel. However when I booked I stated I needed to eat gluten free. The staff did not know I had this requirement. OK the entrée and main course was. The morning tea had 6 pretty cakes, only 1 was obviously GF. The dessert pf a mousse was on a biscuit base which is not GF. The cheese board came with no GF biscuits I had to ask for some. I feel for top deck this sort of detail should be improved.
Product: see previous statement
