Sail Date: December 2010
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Auckland
Our cruise on the pacific pearl 30th December 2010 had finally arrived.

Excited... But upon Embarkation it all seemed Chaos. This we were told was normal.People handed papers to fill one health form from p&o one customs form. Trouble was no pens or very few tables to complete these required forms. Once aboard the pacific pearl we soon became delighted.

Until our luggage went missing. By evening it still had not arrived so away we went asking staff only to be sent to different decks to seek our lost luggage no joy doing that .Finally at 9pm we were informed it had been found. Great news.

We were happy with our cabin which we had chosen after pouring over deck plans long before we booked our trip.

Room was clean & tidy although slightly old decor.We encountered no noise problems at all from deck 9 which was great.

We explored the ship over the following days in which we both enjoyed.

Nightly shows were well worth going to More .Excellent entertainment.

Tried bingo that was fun but expensive.Plenty of free trivial quizs.sports etc.

So much to do or see each day there certainly isnt any reason to become bored.

Plenty of Bars to sit for a Drink & relax.Sun lounges around the pool were well occupied.

Waterfront restaurant was lovely. Plantation buffet was well set out but the hot food was cold each time we went there.Shame.

Staff on the pacific pearl were very friendly & helpful.

Overall well had a Fantastic holiday . Less
