Before we head off on a lengthy cruise abroad, I would like to take my wife on a fairly short - 4-7 days day - cruise ex Brisbane just to see how she handles the seasickness bit.
No point spending tens of thousands of dollars on a lengthy cruise to find out she spends all the time ralphing up in the loo!!
I am also pretty disappointed about the quality of the cruise ships that seem to end their days "down under" i.e. Princess Dawn!
Most forums seem full of disasters relating to the "oldness" of the ships, cabins, restaurants etc. and whilst this will only be a suck-it-'n-see type of cruise for a few days, I would at least like to do it in a bit of luxury and not down in steerage in a leaking and rusty old bucket!
Any advices along the above would be much appreciated to a complete Newbie in the cruising world!
