A true 3 star holiday- P&O ships a rather basic experience.: Pacific Pearl Cruise Review by Hanna2508
Overall Member Rating
A true 3 star holiday- P&O ships a rather basic experience.
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
All together I have to say it was lovely. But that's about it. The stops were lovely and the food was actually quite nice (especially in the main restaurant- waterfront) but the experience didn't live up to our previous experience. The Carnival Cruise liner had fantastic entertainment on board which we missed on the P&O. We're happy to spend extra money for drinks, tours etc, however we found that the 'need' to spend extra was by far more frequent this time than on our previous cruise. A reasonably nice bottle of wine costs at least $40 and there aren't any cheap options on the menu More at all. Especially putting this in relation to the only 3 star level of service and fittings of the ship we thought that was a little bit out of proportion. Altogether I would say- great for families because all the parents we spoke to loved that their kids were entertained in the various kids clubs all day. For everyone else- having done two different cruises now I would recommend carefully reading through the different features and inclusions each ship has on offer. There is definitely better value for money out there than what P&O is offering to the Australian cruise market. Less

Nice cabin interior, however curtains were too thin and let the light shine through which can be tough when the sun rises at 5.40am.
Lovely ship and crew but...
Wont go with Princess again......
Good all rounder
Not an enjoyable experience
