Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2019

Billed as the New Year Cruise experience out of Adelaide for 2 nights. The ship was not up to the main task of providing a great NYE experience. The management (not the overworked crew) are to blame.

The Ship is the rebadged Pacific Eden, some of our group had been on before as P&O and said except for a few touches and new carpets the ship was the same but the difference was the poor service.

There did not seem to be enough crew.

Cabin Review

Adequate cabin for 2 nights, clean and well presented.

Port Reviews


Port Adelaide terminal was built in the 70's it it sparse but functional. It is serviced by an adjacent railway station. Trains run every half hour to the city.
