Fantastic Crew - A Shame About the Ship & Lack of Interesting Activities

Sail Date: Dec 2022

Although the crew were fantastic, the ship is in poor form. It really is rough around the edges which is interesting since P&O had 2 years to sort it. Parts of the ship decks inside and outside stink of a sewerage or waste type odour. Since sailing on the Pacific Sun, Jewel, Pearl & Aria, there is a substantial lack of activities - unless you are interested in bingo and trivia every 3 hours.

Gone are the wine tastings, mixology classes, chefs table, art auctions and information talks i.e. based on visiting locations or ports of call.

Gone are the face washers and attention to detail i.e. refilling of body wash, shampoo, dusting - so much for COVID safe and sanitisation practices.

Cabin Review

The "Mini-Suite" is basically a Balcony Cabin with an added sofa bed and a shower over bath. The general fit out and aesthetic is dated - The only plus was the 2 x LG TV's are new and the bed was comfortable. The balcony furniture is very tired, but the constant smell of sewerage or waste means we didn't sit out on the balcony.

Port Reviews

Mystery Island

A nice spot for a for when you have visited before but not much has changed. It's great for a swim though.


Probably our most favourite port of call. Lovely people but you do need to get out of Noumea.

Port Vila

Lovely people however not a great deal to do.
