  • Pro: The Pantry offers passengers more food choices and freshens up the casual dining area.
  • Con: While The Pantry is now lighter and brighter, it makes some of the other bars and dining rooms look dated.
  • Bottom line: Lots of families, some spanning three generations, create a very relaxed, happy vibe.

Pacific Jewel Cabins

Pacific Jewel has the most balconies of all the ships in the current P&O fleet: 162 balcony cabins, and 36 mini-suites with private balconies. It far outranks sister ship Pacific Pearl, which has only 64 in total, made up of 28 balcony cabins and 36 mini-suites. While the accommodations on Pacific Jewel only received minor attention in the ship's prelaunch makeover, they have since had further renovations and been greatly improved.

Pacific Jewel has 430 standard ocean-view cabins, 208 standard interior cabins, 162 balcony cabins and 36 mini-suites with balconies. The ship also has 20 sets of interconnecting cabins (inside, outside and balcony combinations), another bonus for groups or families. These cabins are also available in twin-twin, triple-triple, and quad-quad formats. There are 10 accessible cabins, which are a mixture of insides and outsides.

All rooms have standard accessories, including flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, safes and hair dryers. Complimentary toiletries are provided and include body wash in a refillable container in the shower and sachets of environmentally friendly shampoo and conditioner. A kit containing a bathrobe and slippers is an additional cost of AU$25 unless you're in a suite.

Interior: Inside staterooms are also distributed throughout the ship, and they're the same size as their outside counterparts at just more than 186 square feet (17.3 square metres). They can sleep two, three or four people with two lower beds and two upper Pullmans. They also have small bathrooms with only a shower and toilet and a little storage in each.

Ocean-view: The remaining outside staterooms are distributed throughout the ship. Some of those are on Deck 8 with obstructed views, and all have picture windows. They are slightly smaller at just more than 186 square feet (17.3 square metres) without the balconies, sleeping two, three or four people. Their decor features medium-toned wood, with an emphasis on orange, gold and cream tones in the carpeting, striped drapes and soft furnishings. The bathrooms are also on the tiny side, with only a shower and toilet, and little storage.

Balcony: Balcony cabins are divided into two basic categories: deluxe and standard. The main difference with the standard variety is where they're positioned on the ship and whether they have a railing or enclosed balcony. The 28 deluxe cabins are all located on Deck 11 forward and have railing balconies. Balcony cabins are all the same size, just less than 201 square feet (19.5 square metres) each, and although they are a tad small by today's standards, they each feature a sitting area and a deep, if narrow, balcony with a table and two chairs. 'These cabins are configured to sleep two. However, some of the deluxe cabins have third berths. Decor-wise, they feature medium-tone wood furniture, a brown and earth tone striped carpet with matching sofa, a desk chair and beige drapes. Generally storage is decent, but bathrooms are small with only a shower and toilet, and little storage.

Mini-suite: Mini-suites are located together on Deck 11 midship, and they can sleep up to three or four passengers, which is ideal for families looking for more space. There are 18 with sofa beds providing third berths and 18 with sofa beds providing third and fourth berths. The mini-suites are each just less than 366 square feet (34 square metres) and comprise one large room with a sitting area and a wide balcony featuring a table, two chairs and two sun loungers. All mini-suites have the same decor, with elegant blue and biscuit striped carpeting, beige drapes, white walls and warm wood furniture, including two easy chairs, a coffee table, a desk chair and a comfy cream sofa. Accents of colour are also found in the royal blue cushions, artwork and the bronze bed throw. There is plenty of closet space, and the bathrooms are slightly larger than those of the balcony staterooms, each offering both a bath and a shower. Added perks for suite passengers include priority embarkation and disembarkation, an invitation to the senior officers' cocktail party, fresh fruit and bottled water, complimentary laundry service, canapes on cocktail nights, bathrobes and slippers, an in-room Nespresso coffee machine and an iPod music system.

Cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable. Being below the main show lounge we did expect some noise, but the all night rehearsing of the new cast resulted in a lot of all night banging (not of the good kind), but we soon got used to it. Being ... Read more
