Sail Date: Mar 2019

We picked this for a cheapie weekend away, and to check out Pacific Explorer having traveled on Carnival Spirit twice for a total of 17 nights and RCI Voyager OTS for 9 nights. We have always had balconies and will continue to book them for longer cruises but as this was a shortie we decided to check out an ocean view stateroom instead.

Lots of groups on board celebrating milestone birthdays, bucks, hens etc. Not many children evident, possibly due to being a 3 nighter. This was a Comedy Cruise, however we found most of the comedy to be pretty disappointing. Just the luck fo the draw on this I would say.

Embarkation took about 25 minutes, no complaints. However, White Bay v.s Circular Quay is really a pain, particularly on the return as we were heading straight to work. Sailing away under the Harbour Bridge however is fantastic. Muster held indoors and seemed pretty well done. Indoors means you are more comfortable, can hear and so are more likely to pay attention.

Cabin Review

Cabin OV

Very tidy, huge big picture window which slopes out. You can sit in the bay window although it got a lot of spray on it over the last 24 hours so you could not see out very well. The bathroom is smaller than some caravan bathrooms. Definitely a one person job! Easier to dry yourself in the room than in the bathroom. Storage OK. The room would be horribly cramped for more than 2 people.
