Our first APT trip - and what a trip. Everything was wonderful - the experiences, the learning, the company, the food, the wine, the cabin, the entertainment and best of all - the amazing crew. We loved that there seemed to be genuine respect and appreciation between all staff (different to other big ship experiences). Despite having to answer the same questions and give out the same information hundreds (1000's?) of times, everyone acted as if it was the first - and with a big smile. The cabin attendants (hi Savio!) and catering and other hospitality staff always looked and sounded as if they were delighted to see you, the deck guys were amazing AND entertaining and the expedition team were just wonderful - enthusiastic, generous, knowledgeable and skilled. We were sad to arrive in Darwin at the end of the cruise. Thank you everyone.
Hannah Campbell's friendly personal service from Global Journeys did a fabulous job of looking after our booking from the moment we contacted her to the completion of our booking and our arrival back home. Would certainly book our next trip through them.
Our three day stay at Cable Beach Resort and local tours certainly ticketed off our Broome Bucket list - from breakfast and dinner each night at the Sunset Bar & Grill, lunch at Matso's Brewery, to the Sunset Camel Ride along Cable Beach to Willie Creek Pearl Farm are all great memories.
Our next part of our journey was a 10 day cruise along the Kimberley Coast from Broome to Darwin with Captain Craig Argent, Officers and his fabulous crew that extended a warm welcome onboard and for the whole cruise, taking in places such as - Hidden Island, Whirlpool Pass, Koolan Island, Talbot Creek, Horizontal Waterfalls, Raft Point, Montgomery Reef, Price Regent River, Careening Bay, Prince Frederick Harbour, Winyalkan and Mitchell Falls, Bigge Island, Vansittart Bay and King George River. All beauties to behold in their colour and slender.
The trip was absolutely amazing from beginning to end, there was not one negative with the boat, excursions or anything pertaining to our experience. We felt privileged to be able to explore this special part of Australia with a very professional company – APT. The ship and their crew could not do enough for the passengers and what blew us away was the educational content and the great Naturalists that were on board and whom we went out with every day to experience this pristine environment.
We have come back raving and we are enticing friends to do the trip and will give them Global Journeys information for booking. Thanks again for making the process so smooth, Global Journeys were great and to APT who we have used for the first time and cannot express how impressed we were with everything.
The holiday was fine but in a few respects, lacked attention to detail. The least satisfactory component was the lack of coordination related to the travel plan and the pre and post activities. APT claimed that they provided detailed options to clients for both but none of this information made its way to us. APT staff said that if clients booked direct they got all details but clients who booked via second parties missed out because agents fail to pass on information. The truth might be different?
We thought the trip overall was excellent but multiple journey APT clients seemed to be grumbling that the execution of arrangements fell short of previous experiences. Some are hard to please!
One real deficiency is that there was no meet and greet activity on arrival in Tokyo. We arrived at the hotel and found one other couple wandering around. We didn't see an APT representative until next day.
On departure we were scheduled to leave the ship at 9 am but not fly out until 11.45pm. Last minute changes were made by APT, at additional cost, but we still reached the airport almost 8 hours before fly time and five hours before luggage could be handed over.
Once on the ship we were well catered for and most daily plans seemed appropriate. We saw rather too many temples and gardens. With a little thought the program could be enhanced. For example, the staple Japanese food is rice. It would be possible to visit a rice farm and hear about production, transport and marketing of this important crop. We just drove past farms like they didn't play any role in society. Further, several major car manufacturing plants were observed being Mazda and Toyota. Many on the trip would have loved an opportunity to see a robotic car production line. Japan is a great manufacturing country and they have enormous price in their products. Surely more diversity is possible?
A lasting impression will be the friendly welcomes provided by locals in all of the small ports visited. Their efforts were remarkable. The brief visit to South Korea was no different.
