Pacific Dawn Cruise Review by just cruising around

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: the South Pacific

stranded in Singapore ship left 1 day late.

Had to queue up twice over 2 days to board up to 4 hours

quality of food hit and miss at all locations

lounge bar prices for drinks

bar staff making cocktails using a 2 nip measure only filled half way

average musicians and the good ones played for limited times

2 hour queue's for tender tickets then 2 hours wait for tender on every shore day

Obnoxious bogans some Russian assaulting staff and other passengers in bars and at reception.

shorts, caps and wife beaters in restaurants and bars at night time

no wonder there were intimidating muscled up bouncers all around the ship

very short stops onshore not full days

over zealous sales scams on activities described as lectures

most activities closed like water slide, flying fox.

Fantastic and accommodating staff with the exception of some higher ranking flamboyant englishmen who appeared to consider passengers as an annoyance

Great selection of cold beer

Having cruised in other parts of the world for less money this cruise and what is being sold in Australia just doesn't compare.

suggest if looking for a cruise try Asia or the USA and not on an Australian run ship.

Steak and lobster included as standard don't pay for any extra food, take your own drink for the cabin. treated well as if you are a customer not an inconvenience.
