Here’s my experience! :) I’m 24 and this was my first cruise and my first time going out of Australia. I went with my two best friends, one whom had already been on the same cruise, and the other had already been to Vanuatu. We departed from Brisbane, and I had parked my car at portside parking, it was affordable and convenient. Check in was easy and didn’t take long, we were the stowaways, so ...

I tried to find an email address so I could complain to P.& O. direct but alas could not find one after searching high and low. They must hope that we will just go away. Anyway here I go. I was told by other work colleagues that they weren't real happy with cruise but thought I would judge for myself. This was my 5th cruise. 3 with P. & O and two on Princess Sun. However I did enjoy PNG but ...

This was my second cruise on the Dawn and it will be my last. My first cruise 4 years ago was great and had no complaints what so ever so naturally thought the same about this one. Wrong! From the moment we got to the embarkation counter the problems started and continued every day even to the point at disembarking. They did not have my sister in law in the system so we had to wait for the ship to ...

Well, to say my lady, my children & myself were looking forward to this break, would of been an understatement, but unfortunately this was all turned upside down. Being the first time on a cruise and having purchased it for my ladies birthday present we could not wait. Unfortunately, because of events that unfolded,in the end,we could not wait to get off. Ironically, about two days before ...

For Starters , Boarding the ship in Brisbane was a joke, from the time we arrived and to the time we got to our cabin was really 2hrs, things were held up a lot by there stupid , no bottle water policy, making people throw out or drink it on the spot, Very stupid. They were so paroind that someone my take their own booze onboard. very stupid . The ship itself is old and it looks like it. Our cabin ...

We have just enjoyed a fantastic holiday which for is after travelling the world extensively, was all positive. I was actually quite scared after reading all the comments here about pacific dawn yet we loved it. My three year old was treated like a prince, I actually had blissful ...
