P&O Australia is what it is, a budget cruise line so my expectations are lower and in general they do a good job, its obvious that the Pearl is past it and has not received the upgrades that the others have as it is retired next year ... Read more

I went on this cruise as part of a wedding. The wedding itself was very nice, it was held in the Dome, which was closed for the event, although the staff in charge of the music screwed up multiple times. And that was the good part of the ... Read more

Like many others have mentioned I was worried leading up to our cruise after reading the negative reviews. We are loyal Princess cruises and this was our first P&O Australia cruise. I decided to go with a positive, go with the flow ... Read more

This was my third cruise, and my first on the Pacific Eden. Also my first cruise with my 11 year old, low verbal autistic child with me. First, the ship, it was beautiful. Plenty of seating areas, beautiful decor, and a lovely ... Read more

We enjoyed most aspects of this cruise. Embarkation was easy and for those Aussies who're wondering about the cruises that don't dock anywhere - no, you don't need to bring the kid's passports, your medicare card will do as ID for ... Read more

I think the reason for the negative reviews on this ship is that people have champagne tastes on a beer budget. I went on a 3 night Food & Wine cruise and really enjoyed it. This was my first cruise, and given the negative press, I ... Read more

As a seasoned cruiser, being on no fewer than 9 cruises over 15 years, on all different lines, I decided to write this review. These are my thoughts and what I feel is a balanced review. I was a bit apprehensive to go, as P&O I do ... Read more

My Husband & I were excited but a little anxious about heading on a planned P&O trip due to the regular negative feedback people had left on P&O Facebook page! We decided it will be what we make of it! Sorry about the essay ... Read more

The Pacific Eden is sold to people as a refurbished Ship. It is far from it! OK on the good side, the restaurants are brand new and are very well decorated as is most of the bars. The rooms and general public areas are all very old and ... Read more

I booked this cruise as a spur of the moment decision and as it was over a weekend I didn't require time off from work. The pacific aria has just undergone a refurbishment and they did a great job on her. The various public venues were ... Read more

50 percent of the public toilets on board were out of order. The floors of the ones which did work were often covered with (used) toilet paper and weren't clean. Paper towels to dry your hands weren't refilled once they were empty. ... Read more

In retirement one can indulge oneself and the idea of a cruising long weekend focusing on food and wine was very appealing. Although we usually cruise on new ships, we chose to overlook the fact that the Jewel is 21 yrs old and went for ... Read more
