  3. Pacific Jewel
Coming from NZ it was easy to fly to Sydney, hop on board and see more of Australia. We were well looked after by the crew, found the activities on board catered for most people and the entertainment was great as there were choices. You were able to do as much or as little as you wanted and you would have to be very fussy to not enjoy something. I realise the ship is older but as far as we could see it is being kept in good condition. A small problem we had in our cabin was fixed quickly and with no hassles. Food was good, the variety was there and although smaller servings in Waterfront you did have the option of more if you required it. Once again we feel only very fussy people could have complained about the food - I know there were a few of those on board. For our 5th cruise we had only one complaint - fresh whole fruit would have been great if available.

Great Crew
