Such a relaxing cruise

Having had to cancel a cruise further out this 15 day cruise from Cairns to Auckland was a great alternative. Having travelled on Silversea ships previously including a recently completed a wonderful Silversea cruise from Darwin to the Kimberley we were pleased to see the ongoing level of service aboard Silver Muse. As a sister ship to Silver Spirit which we had previously sailed upon it was very ...

We booked this cruise quite late. I was asked to take leave and the timing suited us and the pricing was amazing. We got a BA grade balcony cabin for 6 nights for under $800 p.p. and that included a soda package, a social internet package and a $50 cruise credit for each of us. In addition, we organised our flights from Melbourne to Cairns and Auckland to Melbourne via P&O who were able to ...

Chose this cruise to visit places we hadn't been to for a while. Wonderful time for a budget cruise. Balcony room was spotless. Stewards spoilt us .The staff were absolute legends, from the captain down, friendly patient efficient..loved them. Themed nights were same ol same ol. They should change them a bit..they were the same as the last cruise we were on. The music was most excellent "Solid ...

The Pacific Explorer, just like its sister ships in Australia, is a horrible old relic with rust everywhere and daggy old cabins - it really needs to be scrapped. I had a terrible customer service retail experience where I was treated like an imbecile. I advised P&O of my awful experience through multiple channels, but have never received any acknowledgement of my complaint or an apology. I ...

Chose this cruise as it was departing from Cairns where we live and we had wanted to see PNG and try a cruise as had never been interested before. We were happy it was only a 7 night cruise and were happy to get off the ship back in Cairns. The cruise was quite rough at sea for 1st 2 days and was happy I was taking seasick tablets from when we sailed. Many were quite ill the first 2 days and ...

This is a very special ship and a very special company. Our 4th trip with them. The whole experience is a delight and the staff and crew are outstanding. Please ignore any previous adverse comments which completely jar with our experience. All the cabins are of high quality and about the same size. The premium cabin have a balcony and larger windows but the actual cabin space is the same. Open ...

Extraordinary Expedition Cruise across the Spice Islands

We had been previously on a cruise across this Indonesian region last year that was disappointing with Silversea Expedition. This year Ponant cruise was exceptional, thanks to the outstanding expedition team lead by Mick Fogg and the captain; they chose superb location for all stops and we had both landing unique experiences visiting remote villages and extremely isolated locations in all islands ...

Great expedition cruise : very knowledgeable and experienced expedition team with great selection of spots to visit on land; great interactions with locals and landings always so well prepared and fantastic welcome from locals. Very good talks for review and preparation of excursions. Great opportunity to learn about the various indigenous population of such great diversity as Papua, Solomon ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We booked this 12 night cruise from Cairns to Papua New Guinea some 18 months before departure. Previously we had used the same company for a cruise from Broome to Darwin. Both cruises are quite expensive. We felt value for money wise and adventure wise that the trip from Broome to Darwin was far superior. On the PNG islands trip "The place time forgot" we felt that it was too much of the ...

This was called an "expedition cruise". And yes, there were some interesting excursions. But most afternoons were scheduled for swimming and/or snorkelling off a small island with no alternative activities. Not everyone in the main cruising demographic needs so much water activity. We had been to some of the excursion sites before and found this time the visits were shorter, rather ...
