    Disappointing cruise - P&O - Pacific Explorer Cruise Review

    Glrnda sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Explorer in June, 2018

    "Disappointing Cruise Glenda Mitchell Thu 21/06/2018, 2:22 PM Hello, I have previously cruised with p & o in the past a few times, withina few years. I enquired at the time of booking to be told that we were not eligible for any onboard credit or loyalty rewards. I specifically booked the above cruise as my sister had not been to Isle of Pines, Mare or Mystery Island. Due to the wharf being fixed we could not go to Isle of Pines. We were then advised that we would go to Mare instead. Disappointing but accepted it. We were then informed that unfortunately the chief on Mare had passed away so we could not go there either as the island was closed. Instead we spent 2 days in Noumea, (waste of time) one of the days being a Sunday so not much open and nothing to do. Like other fellow passengers, I do not know why we could not have stayed at Mystery Island, even if it was for half a day? Many of the facilities on the ship did not work, toilets did not flush, hand basins not working, washing machines and powder dispensers out of order. Frustrating. The other issue was that depending on which staff you approached to ask a question, the answer would differ. My sister needed to catch a plane on arriving back in Sydney and was told at reception that she could not take her own bags off (to save her time), and that it was smoother for passengers to leave their bags outside the cabin the night before. My sister was not happy about this and asked that if she missed her plane if P & O would reimburse her and was told "No". You can only imagine how annoyed she was to see hundreds of passengers taking their own bags off. Why was she not allowed? Finally, there needs to be entertainment around the pool areas as this was non existent. Staff need training so that the same procedure is followed for each passenger and P & O should be rewarding past guests as other cruise lines do. Lets face it, with a booming cruise industry there has never been more choice. The most disappointing cruise I have been on I look forward to your response Glenda Mitchell "

    Great experience on the Cruize - Explorer Of The Seas Cruise Review

    VARUN sailed with P&O Cruises onboard Explorer Of The Seas in June, 2018

    "Hi, This was our first Cruize trip and no wonders we enjoyed it a lot. Thanks to PnO for very good hospitality. Rooms were clean and tidy and were cleaned regularly on time. Staff was very friendly. Kitchen staff even helped us warm the milk for my kid. Deck places were clean too and all the places were hygienic. Good food at the restaurants. Only small concern was same menu being served many times at the Pantry. Some dishes looked like used more than once which means they were being stored frozen and then used every day. Rest all were 5 star from our side."

    Disappointing - P&O - Pacific Eden Cruise Review

    Samantha sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Eden in May, 2018

    "I was the organiser of 13 guests for the food & wine cruise. The ship was good overall & most staff friendly. Although expensive we were happy with our cabin. The pantry is a real plus with a great variety of food available. The waterfront restaurant was a huge disappointment. Although half empty we were not allowed to sit with our friends at breakfast, even though we booked for a large group. The head staff were rude & unfriendly. The food was disappointing compared to The Pantry. Often served cold, half our group did not eat dinner there. The entertainment offered was for the most part quite good. The most disappointing thing was compared to other food & wine cruises I've organised this one was far from a food & wine cruise with little to no activities offered regarding to food & wine. I had many complaints from my fellow cruisers which was hard considering all the effort I'd put in. Next year's group probably won't want to do another P & O food & wine cruise if it is the same as this one. Our group made it fun but it could have been a much better experience."

    Great review on Pacific Aria - P&O - Pacific Aria Cruise Review

    Vae sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Aria in April, 2018

    "Hi guys, It's been a few weeks since my wife and I have returned from our 4 day getaway on Pacific Aria: Brisbane to Hamilton Island. First time cruisers and we absolutely loved it!!!! From the moment we got on the ship, to the time we got off, the experience was magical. The facilities were clean, trendy, modern. The food was always on point, and the standout for us with so much to offer on a cruise ship including the awesome performers, the daily run sheets of was the staff that made it complete luxury. The definition of relaxation has been discovered on this ship, and we'd like to thank ALL the staff for their 5star service. It was the first time since before our kids were born, we were able to getaway just the two of us, and what a way to do it, I can't wait to book the next one....we might bring our kids...still undecided lol Cheers for the memories, can't wait for next cruise so I can write my next review :) Vae Fui "

    Moreton Island 4night cruise on P&O Pacific Explorer - P&O - Pacific Explorer Cruise Review

    Lynette sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Explorer in April, 2018

    "Unfortunately I did not get the chance to experience this cruise. The ship broke down. I was only on the ship for 3 hours. The ship was due to leave at 8.00pm (3 hours later than scheduled) An announcement was put over by the captain to say they were experiencing mechanical problems and the departure time would be put back further. Approx 8.20pm another announcement came over saying the repairs were going to take longer than expected. In fact they could not give a departure time at all. The Captain stated that this would mean they would not get to Moreton Island in time to experience the activities that were on offer on the Island and he could not give any idea about how long the ship would be at Moreton Island. He then mentioned that if they did not depart by 3.00am then they would not be able to go to Moreton Island at all and they would move to Plan "B' which was to sail south to Eden. I was on the cruise to specifically go to Moreton Island. I sailed south on the same trip in January. I had no interest in doing it again. I also had arrangements to meet my family at Moreton Island. Passengers were given the option of disembarking that night and receiving a full refund or remaining on board and receiving a measly $50 onboard credit. He could not give any indication when they ship would depart. I opted to disembark as I was not going to get what I had booked and paid for. This is when things went 'belly up' The only help we got was to be given the phone number of the taxi company and I had to phone them myself. It cost me $26 dollars to get a taxi to Central Railway Station, luckily I have a seniors card so the train fare was only $2.50. However at the other end it cost me another $46 dollars to get from the station to my home. I already had transport booked for a return journey on the Monday. I lost that money. I also lost money on my kennel fees as my dog was booked in for 4 nights and was only there for 2 nights. I am not sure if I can claim these amounts from P & O. I feel I should not have to claim it from my Travel Insurance. When P&O realised a number of people had chosen to disembark I don't know why they couldn't have got one of their buses, that does runs to the railway station and the airport, back to transport us. I had to lug my bags up and down stairs, on and off trains and eventually arrived at my home at 1.00am in the morning. NOT HAPPY I was also not allowed to leave the ship before settling my onboard account which had an amount from the Spa. I said to the receptionist that they had my card details and why could they not do the same as they had done previously and deduct the amount from my account after disembarking. Last time I didn't even have to go to reception before disembarking. This took the girl considerable time as she didn't appear to know what she was doing. It also took her considerable time to find the number for the taxi. Surely they would have this number 'front and centre'. I have since had an email from Carnival ............ who evidently handle the payment of passenger's invoices asking for payment. The deduction sat in my account as 'payment pending' for over a week and then suddenly disappeared. Why had they not taken the money out ? I have not received my refund yet. As I paid my money the day I booked the cruise which was back in January and they had that money for 3 months they could at least have decency to refund it back immediately. "

    P&O Pacific Explorer - P&O - Pacific Explorer Cruise Review

    Michael sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Explorer in April, 2018

    "Overall we had an enjoyable holiday Cabin was small but clean and functional with a comfortable bed and large shower Cabin stewards were friendly and efficient, tidying the room and bed every time we left the room Restaurant staff were very friendly and attentive Food and choice was good but most dishes were covered in too much sauce/jus Entertainment crew were average and cruise director was reliant on deputy and assistants Off-Shore activities good but in Port Vila, the 'glass bottom boat and snorkelling tour' was bad with tour leader disinterested"

    great Cruise on Carnival Legend - Carnival Legend Cruise Review

    Karen sailed with Carnival Cruises onboard Carnival Legend in March, 2018

    "- really good value for Money - Food: good Choice at the Lido Restaurant Buffet - we loved the Truffels Restaurant and our waiters " Sunny", "Parli", and "I Puto" - Entertainment was fantastic: each night Comedy and Music shows, during the day Trivia and game shows, there was never a boring moment. - Our 15 year old son loved the O2 Club. he had lots of fun and made a lot of friends - Cabin: booked the cheapest option and got an outside cabin. totaly satisfied. Super friendly Cabin staff. - this has been our first cruise ever and we've been sceptical about being on a ship with so many people, but we didn't feel crowded. Instead we thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation on the ship. All Staff has been absolutely friendly so no regrets. I can absolutely recommend Carnival Legend! "
