It was our 25th wedding anniversary and something special was what we were after. The Pacific Pearl didn't disappoint. Booking a short 3 night 'Comedy' themed cruise was a blast. Sure the ship in parts is showing some age, a bit of rust ... Read more

Just returned from a 11 night cruise to PNG onboard the Pacific Jewel in cabin 10247. We have been on quite a few different ships from various cruise lines and I must say that we do not nitpick about very minor problems but take notice of ... Read more

As first time cruisers we were excited yet filled with trepidation - what to take , what to wear, theme nights , how much to allow for spending money. The usual questions that newbies would ask - but the info we got back from people ... Read more

This is our 6th cruise, 3rd with P&O. I say third, because our first was with them (which nearly put us off) and the 5th one was a quickie which I did with some girl friends and will be doing again. My husband and I work long ... Read more

This was a first cruise for my birthday. My partner who sailed with me had cruised with P&O through Asia six years ago. Our first opinion of the ship was not great. Our toilet brush had not been cleaned from the previous occupants ... Read more

We had our doubts about the Aria after reading some crappy reviews, but this cruise was absolutely fantastic. This was our 11th cruise and our 8th with P&O. Everything from the food to the service to the cabins was absolutely 5 ... 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

Because we wished to see the West coast of Australia, I must say all about the ship was very good, I think those that complain must be a little hard to please. I found the food in the Pantry to be most adequate and suitable for what ... Read more

Being our first cruise, my wife and I had no real expectations. I read some great reviews and some bad reviews, but really like to find things out for myself. This cruise was given as reward from my work so my spending was to be on ... Read more

We chose the Pacific Eden because it was based in Fremantle which meant no flying! We were very wary of how this cruise was going to go because we had seen so many poor reviews but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. This was ... Read more

Our 3-day Fremantle to Margaret River to Fremantle cruise with P&O Pacific Eden was a birthday surprise for my husband, and an opportunity for us to sample the newly renovated and much-hyped P&O product. It was the longest 3 ... Read more

Early in April of this year my partner and I felt like getting away for a few days. Since neither of us had ever cruised before we decided to give it a go. So more or less on the spur of the moment I booked a suite (at a super bargain ... Read more

I chose this cruise as I had to travel in school holidays and there was not much choice. I normally choose other cruise lines although I have traveled on many P & O cruises prior. Like other people, I was a bit dubious prior to ... Read more

Chose this because I knew of P&O being one of the top cruise lines in the 1960s and 70s. It was a real disappointment. P&O Australia have destroyed the P&O brand. Probbaly a factor of being bought over by the down market ... Read more
