Rusting old ship

Pacific Dawn Cruise Review by IanRoss

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the South Pacific

The crew we met complained about working long hours and receiving poor pay in return.

The entertainment was rubbish with the singers obviously miming and the theatre was very cold.

We were in cabin 11195 but couldn’t use the miniscule balcony as there was water leaking from the water slide above. The furniture on the balcony was filthy and paint was splashed over it and the glass doors.

Our safe didn’t work from arrival and took over 48 hours to replace it, which meant we had to keep valuables and passports with us at all times.

The extractor in the shower was very rusty, and the bathroom constantly smelt of stale urine although it looked quite clean.

There is extensive corrosion on the boat with holes you could put your hand thro, l have no idea how structurally safe it really is.

The food was average, however it was basically impossible to get a table with travelling companions and then go to get food from a variety of serving points and sit down and eat together.

Many of the windows are either very dirty or going opaque with old age so seeing the views is obscured.

The swimming pool is a joke so didn’t even bother trying it.

The boat is well past it’s best and should be cut up for scrap, giving it 2 stars is being generous
