Service: I was very disappointed that we saw so little of the Vivid Lights,that was my main reason for going on the cruise, i have Arthritis in my hips and find it difficult walking a lot, the meal was nice and our waiter Tobias was very attentive, i wondered why we did not go into Farm Cove to view the lights from the Botanic Gardens,we stopped at a wharf in Circular Quay(why i do not know) i felt the time spent here could have taken us into Farm Cove instead.
Product: Won't go again, didn't see enough Lights
