Service: I loved the endless supply of seafood, since it was a seafood buffet on the menu. There was also a good variety of hot food and salads. I liked that sparkling wine was offered to guests to toast and welcome in the New Year before the countdown began. The staff were attentive when you called for service. The live entertainment was great and played a good variety of music. The cruise did not feel crowded at all, as it was sold out. Guests could easily move around on board and there wasn't any jostling for positions to see the fireworks. I much prefer a smaller cruise ship than a large one, though having said that I haven't tried any other cruises. I guess the MV Sydney 2000 will be the next cruise to try. Overall it was my first cruise experience and I loved it! I will definitely by booking Captain Cook III again!
Product: Good value for money for an awesome experience

Service: The pre departure team kept everyone informed and engaged. After boarding it was only a matter of minutes before we were offered champagne. The team were attentive and nothing was a problem. The food was fresh with a very good selection. The entertainment was good and the views were spectacular.
Product: The cost was expensive, but you certainly you get what you pay for.
