We joined the world cruise in Sydney with about 1000 others. It does seem a tad disappointing fore 'around the world' cruisers that they have so many fairly transient passengers with them. The standard of the food was excellent as was the service we received in the Meridaian restaurant. The cabin steward also provided excellent service.
What was lacking ? Perhaps the Entertainment team was not able to galvanise the passengers to the extent that we have experienced on other world cruises.
Another common problem is the lack of or even misinformation provided to dependent travellers for shore visits. Obviously P & O are very keen to push their own over-priced excursions.
Standard P & O cabin, very adequate without being at all stunning
Very poor city but interesting nevertheless
Lovely day in Brisbane as an independent traveller
Spent the very hot day in and around the Cairns lagoon
Lovely private tour of Alotau.
