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 ...

We choose this cruise as it was not your average destination & we wanted to experience a different culture & people. The ship sailed from Cairns Aust. We live in Central Victoria. So right from the get go we were up for extra costs of air fares & hotels. If we flew up on the day of the cruise & there was a problem with flights then we could have been in deep doggy do doos. The prudent thing was ...

booked this cruise from our home port of Cairns with a drinks package at a good price. We were concerned by the reviews and we had also just finished a cruise from Hawaii to Sydney on Celebrity Solstice. So we went with our eyes wide open. it was going to be a 3 star ship which is typical of P and O australia and we were not expecting the bells and whistles of Solstice. We went with 3 other ...

The terminal in Cairns did a great job on embarkation and disembarkation the staff were professional and friendly. The gang plank was quite steep and difficult for some older passengers. On this cruise we visited Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands and had a lovely time at the various ports Alotau, Rabaul, Honiara and especially Kivata island and Gizo island; which were very primative but ...

Reading the reviews before we left, was confusing, some had a great time (these included frequent travellers) others bagged it, or tried to compare it to other cruise companies. I'll start by saying we had a great time. I will also not compare this cruise to others, until the end. So where to start, ahhh the beginning: P & Os website provides enough information to get onto the ship, generate ...

We just got back from the PNG cruise out of Cairns. The only downside really was the lack of information given before the cruise which continued on through each day on board. As soon as you got on board there was a bombardment of signs, flyers and little desks around for the First 24 hours sale! The photo package, the drinks package, the Spa package, the Edge Package, the internet ...

Pacific Dawn: P&O Australia. Sail date 21st May 2011, 11 nights New Caledonia & Vanuatu. After reading past reviews of this ship and after viewing past drunken passengers videos on youtube, we were a little hesitant about stepping onboard P&O Australia's publicized ship of "Brisbane's First Super Liner". This is no Super Liner, once it may have been but, those days for this ship have long ...
