First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

Had a great time on this cruise. Ship facilities and balcony room were great. Food and shows really good. Staff polite and efficient in the main. They were helpful and friendly in the main. Seemed plenty of room and very rare not to be able to get a seat. Boarding/Disembarking very efficient. Very fast ship doing 24 knots at times. Crew all seemed newish, but did well overall. Just drinks service ...

Overall this was a very good cruise. We choose this cruise due to the itinerary and were happy with all ports of call except Suva. (the other side of the island is much nicer). Pago Pago was a pleasant surprise with a good swimming beach just 5 mins walk from the ship. (at Sadie's by the Sea, $5 to use) Kauai was a highlight, with the NaPali coast simply spectacular. Snorkeling with the ...

Yes I know I said we would never go back on the Jewel unless it was free... but this cruise was SO cheap we couldn't resist! Ha ha. And boy are we glad we did! We paid NZ$800 (twin share) for 10 nights to Fiji and Tonga and also had around $250 of freebies each (inc AUD$100 room credit, free Wifi, free $5 icecream daily each, free dinner at Salt Grill for 2, free soft drinks package each) plus ...

My daughter, grandson and I recently went on another short break cruise out of Auckland. We did this cruise last year and loved it so decided to go again and were especially looking forward to seeing the recent renovations onboard. We got a mini suite again but this time but on the opposite side of the ship as our last room was a bit noisy in the evening as it was under the Grill. This time ...

We have previously cruised with Regent and decided to try another top notch cruise line that was all inclusive (mostly). We traveled from Auckland, New Zealand on February 4, 2018 to Sydney, Australia, ending on February 22, 2018. Our accommodations was similar to our experience on Regent. We had a nice sized balcony room with a walk in closet and large bathroom. Unlike Regent the ...

This cruise was the February Auckland to Sydney on Encore. It was our second cruise having taken the Singapore to Hong Kong last year. Cabin, service, food and alcohol were excellent but the same crucial niggles. Internet! In this day and age and for the money we are paying internet should be included and fast. We felt like school kids on port stops, dashing to the nearest library or ...

Very comfortable with lots to do. The meals were particularly outstanding with quality stressed and not quantity. There were so many places to eat that you could choose any time that you liked. There were always plenty of lounge chairs available. The staff were wonderfully trained, always smiling even for the difficult passengers. Many of them picked up your name after just a couple of meetings. I ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

I chose the option of a cruise so I didn't have to negotiate the tedious rigors of airport security and the daily pains of finding a place to eat and another to visit to fill in my holiday. I work long hours normally and get very little time off so the wife and I wanted a holiday that was out of NZ and stress free. The Vanuatu Explorer certainly achieved this. While the ship itself is a bit tired, ...

Having sailed on the Paciifc Dawn out of Brisbane last year, we wanted to save travel costs and sail from our home port in NZ. Cruise departed from Akl and have to say embarkation was much simplier and efficient in Auckland. Disembarkation was just as painless. We had a balcony suite 10176 and was in a great spot on the ship never had any trouble with noise. Was very happy with the dining, ...
