Ship Facts: Pacific Jewel Review (by Cruise Critic!)
great expectations dashed
Previous Oct 2010 south pacific cruise from Sydney cancelled so a 25% discount for this one prompted upgrade to mini suite on deck eleven, big mistake.

Noise from top (pool) deck was horrendous music too loud and especially the scraping & banging of tables and chairs at 3,4 & 5am, management obviously aware of this problem for some time proven by fellow passengers stating that their travel agent had warned them against selecting cabins on this deck, When you pay for the most expensive cabin you expect according conditions, not on this ship.

Control of children especially in the adult only whirlpool spa areas of the pool deck was non existent.

Should have done more research into scheduled on board activities (is that possible?) would have known cruise theme was "Bogan Bingo Trivia Festival".

Set up of bars was poor almost like suburban pub or club.

The Oasis bar can only be accessed by paying membership of $10/day.

Majority of entertainers were sub standard and the scheduling of their appearance was quite hectic/confusing.

Drinks very expensive(and no excise?)may be making up for the cancelled cruise.

Have to pay for spa/gym access, never on previous cruises even with P&O.

TV screens in cabins may be a minor point but its 2011 not 1990 upgrade required so you can at least "see the picture".
