Good Cruise on Pacific Eden

Pacific Eden Cruise Review by SeaDog-46

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2016
  • Destination: Asia

Very good price for a fly/cruise Singapore to Cairns.

This was another cruise unable to tender into Benoa, Bali due to swell. Diverted to Lombok.

Makassar, Komodo Island, Dili & Darwin all went off well - but Cooktown too much wind for safe tendering.

The buffet food was extensive with the best dessert selection I have seen on any cruise SHIP. All served from behind glass by smiling staff who would add more if requested.

Waterfront & the two other included restaurants were good but with small servings.

Salt Grill was praised by all we met that had used it. [A$49 pp.]

Stewards & other crew all working well & now as good as Princess.

Entertainment was also good with some better than others. There were even two lecturers.

AC handled the hot conditions well & some thought it too cold & were issued blankets.

Toilets worked & did not hear of any problems.

It should be remembered that P&O Aust. is a 3 star operation. As such it is nearly as good as some & better than some of the 4 star lines.

The only real disappointment was that the majority of my fellow Australians thought they were on a BOAT!!!

Cabin Review

Cabin Ocean view 4211

Cabins are bigger than some more modern vessels.

No updating from HAL - but beds are comfortable. Good cupboard space.

Amenities better than RCC & still the same branded products as HAL.
