Pacific Pearl Review October 2013

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

My fiancé and I spent 9 nights on board travelling to Mare, Noumea, Lifou ( my favourite island) and Isle of Pines. It is our second cruise. One lady on board had been on 48!!

Good Points: The service was impeccable and food particularly in the Waterfront restaurant first class. The Connexions Bar was great fun and P & O as usual had a wide and entertaining variety of activities to do. The cocktails were the highlight and reasonably priced ( $9.90 each generally) .

The cabin.  Not biggys but still noteworthy things P & O could address are: the Pedal Bin the ensuite was too small;  No A.C Powerpoints in the Internet lounge for your Laptop if the battery went flat; T.V. in Cabin very cheap and poor quality; pictures virtually unwatchable. All need replacing. Sun Loungers are never available ; well that goes for every ship I suppose. Double Ticket system for the P & O run Mare shuttle confusing.  Beds were comfortable and the cabins More bigger than the Dawns. We had an ocean view cabin.

Bad points: The main thing that P & O are good at are generally moving their passengers around; its the logistics of good cruising that you don't have to queue forever. Having said that the LIFTS ( ELEVATORS)WERE THE WORST I have ever experienced!! They were constantly breaking down; slow; signalling overloaded before they were full of people. They need a through maintenance check and be recertified with larger capacity and SWL. On land , not at sea! This ship is old and shows it; rust around the Cabin Window; Crack in the Spa Lining. Less
