Pacific Dawn Cruise Review by Fluffy Duck

  • Sail Date: Jun 2016
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand

This was a food and wine short cruise. It was the first time we had an interior cabin which was right up the back of the ship. With the beds pushed into the middle for a queen, there was not a lot of room left down the sides to actually get into the bed. However, there was heaps of storage space being a cabin for 4 people.

It ended up being a great location as we only had to walk out the back door and then up to the buffet area, or down one to the adults area.

There were 6 of us travelling together so we always booked a table for dining together. The food was good but the service was a bit lacking.

The entertainment was good but we did not undertake any of the wine appreciation activities. We did however, attend a food demonstration which was really entertaining.

We took our own accessories for the Gatsby night. It didn't cost much for headpieces for ladies and coloured braces and bow ties for the men. It ended up being a good night. We did intend going to the Bianco party but it was really cold up on deck but we did see a lot of different versions of white from passengers.

Cabin Review

Cabin IC 11227

The cabin was good but not much room left down the sides of the bed after the singles were pushed together. There would have been a lot more room if we had left the beds as singles. Heaps of storage room as there was cupboard and drawer space for at least 3 people and also 3 safes in the room.

Overall, very happy with our first venture with inside cabins.
