Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2019

It was a Dark Mofo 6 night mid-winter escape to Hobart that caught my eye.

To Tasmania in the middle of winter ? Yeah why not.

I have fond memories of the Dawn Princess but not very good memories of some of P&O Australia's "new" (old) ships. I thought my experience on the Pacific Eden' inaugural trip from Fremantle to Sydney a couple of years ago would have cured me from every going near P&O Australia again but....I must have had a lapse of concentration.

Cabin Review

Cabin OG

My cabin was lower down and further forward than I have even been on a cruise ship. The cabin was not allocated until a week or so before departure.

Un-refurbished from Princess days it was however restful and quiet and despite the awful stink that crept in one morning was okay. The cabin stewardess was wonderful.
