Welcome to Cruise Review, the network for those new to cruising, and the expert cruiser.
Important Information, Our Policies, Terms & Conditions, Disclaimers, etc.

At CruiseReview.net.au we aim to provide reviews and opinions on cruises and cruise related matters.

We aim to provide you with accurate and reliable information on cruising, however you should keep in mind that the posts and opinions may not accurately reflect the experience you may have on a particular cruise and any remark made by a member is the opinion of that member and may not be the opinion of us. Please let us know if you consider a review is inaccurate (and what action you think we should take).

You should read all post and reviews with some scepticism and not rely on this website as the basis for any decision.

Inappropriate or Unacceptable Posts

If we consider a member or a post(s) is not appropriate, we may decide to take action which may include editing the post, deleting the post, or remove such member from our forum. We may take this action or other actions, in circumstances when we consider:
  • a post to be aggressive, inaccurate or vindictive;
  • a post that we consider may be illegal;
  • a post that we consider to be inflammatory;
  • a post that we consider harassing, discriminatory, etc;
  • a post we consider to be business or commercial in nature (and we have not agreed to such post); and/or
  • other circumstances that we consider reasonable.
If you disagree with our decision, you may contact us to request our reconsideration.
