Thanks for the update. I knew there was some reason I wasn't that thrilled with the Regal. In fact, since it was the only vessal sailing the Australian waters, I've put off going there until something better is afloat. I'm now looking at a 2004 cruise as that is when the Star Princess will be doing this route.
