  • Explorer Of The Seas Jacqualine Stevenson P&O Cruises P & O Pacific Explorer South Pacific Islands

    Most relaxing cruise on the Pacific Explorer - Explorer Of The Seas Cruise Review

    Jacqualine sailed with P&O Cruises onboard Explorer Of The Seas in September, 2018

    "One of the best Holidays we’ve had. You can do as much or little as you please. The food in the Pantry, was your everyday cuisines. Average. The other restaurants were upmarket cuisine and not your everyday restaurant menu. You have plenty of choice throughout the whole ship for choice of food. If you can’t find anything you like, then I’d say your extremely fussy. The waterfront restaurant had the best breakfast. 99.8% of staff are exceptional. You could not ask for better service. The captain will not risk anyone’s life to attend an island if he feels it is unsafe. We missed mystery island, we were quite happy to have missed the rough seas in the tender boat that day. Staff don’t speak English so well, so be very very careful of the “Spa “ staff. I was caught out and felt very scammed by them, left me upset for a few days. When they say “free” does not mean “free” even when you ask four times to confirm. That would be my only bad taste, that I would never give my business to again. We had deck 9 in the middle. Absolutely the best cabin available. No window, and that was fine as we hardly spent any time in the room. 15year old son met other children through the kids club. He did say, something’s were a bit young for him. My 16 year old son, was very bored. Not a lot to do for 16/17 year olds. As I saw other kids the same age seeming to be in the same situation. Must do,, Lifou,, Jinket Bay. Make sure you book on cruise control as spots are limited. Port villa, Vanuatu, we loved Hideaway island, and posted a post card to the underwater post office, great for snorkelling. Loved the markets right at the dock. And our tour guide organised through FB was Bountiful Tours, private tour was fantastic. Isle of pines, we didn’t see any fish or coral here. Maybe a tour would take you somewhere to see the turtles etc. Nouméa, we did double decker bus through FB. Great tour. But maybe look at doing it early and then squeeze another different tour in the afternoon. If time allows."
  • P&O - Pacific Explorer Carolyn P&O Cruises 10 Night South Pacific Cruise

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

    Carolyn sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Explorer in September, 2018

    "It was pure luxury. Our balcony room was Mid Deck 12 and it was so quiet and peaceful and a joy to open the windows and get the beautiful sea breeze. It was kept spotless and tidy by our attentive room steward. The food choices were fantastic. All the lounging areas were luxuriously appointed. We were never short of entertainment as there was always something to do. This was our first cruise and we are already planning our next."
  • P&O - Pacific Eden Julie Brand P&O Cruises Discover Vanuatu

    Enjoyed ourselves on Pacific Eden - P&O - Pacific Eden Cruise Review

    Julie sailed with P&O Cruises onboard P&O - Pacific Eden in September, 2018

    "My husband and I totally enjoyed our recent cruise on P&O Pacific Eden, I loved the ship it wasn't too big and not too glitzy or over the top with waterslides etc. the food on board was fabulous the variety was incredible and beautifully presented. But found the waiters at the Waterfront restaurant a bit snobby, but only a small thing, otherwise good service. The cabin was great found it a good size for us this is also the same for the ensuite. The house keepers were wonderful as well, we couldn't fault them. The entertainment on board was first class with the different types of entertainment, the pools were great, but it would of been nice to have a spa pool in the adults only area, especially for the older people who usually have aches and pains, the spas were taken over by the kids which is fine, but felt uncomfortable going in with them. I take my hat off to all the crew they worked tirelessly the whole cruise, from the people doing the tender boats, staff assisting getting on and off the tenders, to the cleaners, just everyone really they were incredible. I know the Pacific Eden has been sold which is sad because she is a lovely ship, more like the ships of old, this was our first cruise in forty years and of course a lot of things have changed but only for the better, except I really don't like the huge ships going round but that's just me. Thank you P&O I am hoping to go on another cruise on day and I would go with P&O because they ticked all the boxes for me."

    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."
  • P&O - Pacific Explorer Vicki and David Stanford P&O Cruises Pacific Islands

    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 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!"
