    Review on Pacific Dawn - P&O - Pacific Dawn Cruise Review

    Linda sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Dawn in August, 2018

    "Top Balcony Cabin- a joke with balcony so small and cabin was very tired. Most Staff in dining room were good but had to keep repeating food allergies for ever meal even though had filled in menu day before. Pantry staff couldn't understand or speak English so very difficult with my food allergies. Female staff in photo gallery very rude and unhelpful. Cabin staff were very good except had a used wet face washer hanging in shower on arrival! Went with my daughter for her 40th birthday and her husband, 4 years old & 6year old grandchildren nothing special from cruise ship for her birthday and I had to pay for the cake. Speciality Restaurant was excellent and had high tea there also. Anytime dining does not exist had to book main dining room and after day 3 0f 7 days they finally got it right. Very annoyed I had to pay in Luke M restaurant when my daughter and my sister in-law didn't have to pay extra. My daughter received $100 on board credit, NZ ice cream voucher, Luke M Restaurant FREE, Go catch voucher. My sister in-law received $200 on board credit, NZ ice cream voucher, Go catch voucher & Luke M restaurant FREE & I received $200 on board credit, NZ ice cream & Go catch voucher NO FREE Restaurant voucher. My daughter and I live in North Brisbane area and booked together so didn't need Go catch voucher. Would I book again on P&O...NO!"
  • P&O - Pacific Explorer Cabin a good size but torn and stained sofa and Tatty bed linen pulled it down, I have photos. Insufficient advice re the cruise P&O Cruises Discover Vanuatu

    Pacific Explorer - P&O - Pacific Explorer Cruise Review

    Cabin sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Explorer in August, 2018

    "Insufficient advice on the cruise beforehand, as to the standards on the ship. Only one night was "cocktail", the others were "smart casual". which translated to- t shirts and thongs in the restaurants, even down to caps being worn. The food in the "PANTRY" was usually cold ( poached eggs etc)and not of a good standard. The decor in the other restaurants was of good quality but again let down by the food served(50%). Children in bars of an evening and not constrained by parents. (Blue Room) Cabin great size but marred by worn and stained furnishings, tatty bed linen. Cabin crew seemed over worked so, just OK. But I must applaud the priority boarding, and the disembarkation which was fault free. Entertainment was mediocre, maybe that is a reflection on pricing."

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

    Vicki sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Explorer in July, 2018

    "The variety and quality of food in the buffet ‘The Panrty’ was disappointing. I was surprised that they did not serve either ice cream or cream to accompany dessert. Quite often there was a struggle to find seating and at times tables were left uncleared for sometime. Obviously a lack of staff and a lack of staff supervision. The quality of food in Angelos restaurant was ordinary. The Dragon Lady restaurant was reasonable and The Waterfront restaurant was also just reasonable. Despite being disappointed with the food overall in the restaurants the service was outstanding. The cabin crew service was faultless and they were friendly and obliging. Overall we had a relaxing and pleasant time, but, I would not cruise with P&O again."
  • Carnival Spirit Robert Lamond Carnival Cruises Carnival South Pacific

    Carnival Spirit has spirit - Carnival Spirit Cruise Review

    Robert sailed with Carnival Cruises onboard Carnival Spirit in July, 2018

    "We had a wonderful eight day holiday in July to the South Pacific. The food, entertainment and service was all excellent for this class of ship and the general atmosphere on board was friendly and relaxed. Our cabin, although interior twin share on deck 7, was more than adequate for the limited time we spent in that area of the ship. We especially enjoyed the over 18 comedy shows and the nightly music in the Red Frog Bar. Everything including the tendering process was run professional and efficiently. "

    A warm Pacific Jewel winter! - P&O - Pacific Jewel Cruise Review

    Lee-Ann sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Jewel in July, 2018

    "A great way to holiday with kids! Everything is just a few decks, entertainment, drinks. Our cabin staff took good care of us and The Pantry staff made sure that mealtimes ran smoothly and that we all had enough to eat - they didn't judge if you went back for seconds either!"

    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 "
