1st 4 days were very rough with a lot of passengers feeling unwell. Once we docked at Noumea the sea was much calmer from then on. Atmosphere on board is very relaxing. Food is fairly good. Nothing to rave about. On-board activities were ok. Most not at the best times for us or not things we would enjoy. Met some fantastic people who we keep in touch with, which was the highlight of the cruise. Would definitely not travel on the Eden again or the Aria (same size) as they don't have the stability of the bigger ships. Noumea is very expensive, nice to visit as were the other New Caledonia islands and yet have no interest in returning. This was our 2nd visit. Vanautu is awesome. People are very friendly and love to assist you. Would easily go back to Vanautu, very different to New Caledonia.
Some staff were 1st class yet others didn't care even to the point of being rude.
This was our 2nd P&O Cruise and will probably be our last. It won't be our last cruise though.
