Sail Date: Aug 2017
Cabin:

As we haven’t yet cruised (5th cruise) on the P & O Aria and it was leaving from Brisbane to a destination not visited before (Tonga) we decided to book an 18 night cruise.

We were very satisfied with our room as it was very clean and comfortable.

We like how the Staff in the Pantry dishes up your choices of foods, great infection control. Unfortunately the quality of the food provided in the Pantry was poor but the desserts were even worse being stale, tasteless and rubbery which is very disappointing, as we have always looked forward to the foods we don’t usually eat at home (eg. danishes, pudding, bun loaves etc). On the last 2 weeks of cruising I was enjoying the taste of crackers, cheese and dried fruit for dinner. The restaurants Waterfront & Angelo’s for dining were average but don’t order ice cream as it arrives defrosted. The Dragon Lady food was fresh and of good quality.
