Top brass wanting!


We boarded on March 2nd 2017 for A ½ World Cruise of 65 days. The ship is old, but very stable and met all my requirements for a 3 Start rating. The cabins and facilities were as expected- not 5 Star but we ...

Could easily have been so much better!

This was called an "expedition cruise". And yes, there were some interesting excursions. But most afternoons were scheduled for swimming and/or snorkelling off a small island with no alternative activities. Not ...

The terminal in Cairns did a great job on embarkation and disembarkation the staff were professional and friendly. The gang plank was quite steep and difficult for some older passengers. On this cruise we visited ...

This was a disappointment

This was a pretty much overrated trip. While the staff were great, the charges were pretty steep and it was (initially) difficult to get around. Food was o.k. - although Luke Mangan's Restaurant should be thrown ...

Cheap and Cheerful

Boarding: Instructed to show up at 11am, we expected a gentle progress suggested by the red “Priority” notice on our E-ticket. It seemed everybody had an 11am date and 1500 people were trying to progress ...

It's P & O and that's what you get

Reading the reviews before we left, was confusing, some had a great time (these included frequent travellers) others bagged it, or tried to compare it to other cruise companies. I'll start by saying we had a great ...

Nice cruise, great staff - needed more information

We just got back from the PNG cruise out of Cairns. The only downside really was the lack of information given before the cruise which continued on through each day on board. As soon as you got on board ...

We were so looking forward to this cruise as we had travelled on the Azamara Journey previously and had thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This recent cruise was a different kettle of fish and not high on our list ...

Not the way I wanted my Mum to experience her first cruise

Embarkation was quick & trouble free as we had the help of staff at the terminal for my 86 yr old mum with her wheelie walker. It was unfortunate that we (and others with disabilities) were expected to walk right ...

Pick up at the airport was good but at the Marriott we learned that two of the seven couples on the bus did not have room keys. After the long miserable flight we were all told to wait on the bus while two more room ...
