Pacific Dawn Cruise Review by Barbie Baker

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

My sisters and i cruised to the Whitsundays with our 90 year old parents who were celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. All the staff were absolutely fantastic .. smiling, friendly, helpful, nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived at Airlie Beach, my parents were ably assisted into the tender .. they weren't rushed and were taken to their seats. The entertainment was fantastic .. loved the Great Gatsby Night .. felt sorry for the cleaners the next day with bits of feathers from our boas scattered throughout the ship. The rooms were clean. Great food choices.

Complaints? Long queues at the Pantry, no trays, limited seating, some chairs too low for the tables. I went with some friends on the Dawn 5 years ago .. the Plantation cafe was much better .. better seating and cafe provided morning and afternoon teas.

We all had a great time. Hope to go again next year.
