My husband and I absolutely loved this ship. There were lots of entertainment and there was always something to do.

If you are not into their activities, then you can spend your time eating at their amazing restaurants. The Pantry has plenty of options but the food in D Angelos and Dragon Lady and Waterfront are superb. 400 Gradi has awesome pizza and meats and cheeses but you need to pay. However, the quality of their food is as best as the top restaurants in the Sydney CBD yet at half the price. D Angelos and Dragon Lady were included in the fare but were just as good too as any 5 star rated restaurant.

The staff were all lovely and we throughly enjoyed their classes. All of their staff were helpful and knowledgeable and always looked happy to see you. Drinks are also reasonably priced.

We didn't get to swim in the pools though and do the waterslides but they looked enjoyable as there were quite a lot of people. But it is alright as we got to swim a lot during the shore tour.

Our cabin was very functional. Although it was a bit small compared to a hotel room it was in no way less in quality. Their airconditioning worked well and they had plenty of space and drawers to put all your stuff in. Their shower area even had more racks than most hotels we have stayed in which was amazing. Our room steward was very caring and was always happy to help and kept our room clean.

We enjoyed the cruise so much we booked another. Would highly recommend P&O Explorer.
