Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Pacific Explorer

I cruised from 25/05/24 - 01/06/24 to PNG with 3 friends. 2 of us in a room with a balcony level 10. I have cruised 5 previous times with Celebrity, Princess and Carnival. This is the first time with P&O. I was so excited when we arrived and then my heart plummeted and jaw dropped at how sad the ship looked and smelled when I walked in. We did a wander around the whole ship and noticed ...

After reading a few bad reviews I wasn't expecting much however I was wrong. We had a great time. I also spoke to more than a dozen similar couples and they were also having a great time. I only saw one winger. The ship has a little exterior wear and tear (as you would expect with a twenty year old ship), but the interior was very attractive 98% perfect. Our cabin was great, the food was pretty ...

NO coral gardens despite headlined as such

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime… service and expeditions were a disaster… most of us 220 people on board were feeling unheard, treated like children… only the rooms were luxurious… very very far from the advertised ultra luxury on every level except for… sushi lounge, room itself. The purpose of this expedition was culture and coral gardens… culture yes, coral gardens was non ...

Worst cruise experience

1. bathtub is mouldy, toilet smells like dirty public toilet. Made compliants but no improvement. 2. Everything on the ship aren’t being maintained and very dated, e.g. Pantry water tab (to wash hands) not working, not just one of them but every single one. 3. Staff need a lot more training, the worst customer service I have ever experienced on a cruise ship. E.g. in the Pantry, one of the ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The Coral Adventurer owned by Coral Expeditions is a modern small ship built to be able to sail close to small islands and into rivers. It sleeps 120 guests but there was only 90 on board. It has one main dining area which is air-conditioned, or you can sit outside to have your meals. There are other outside areas to eat which are used for sunset drinks or an outdoor BBQ. There is a small gym and ...

Not Good Enough

This ship is marketed as one of the fastest cruise ships afloat. We were late arriving at Bermuda, we missed Golfito altogether because we were late, we missed Hilo altogether because we were late, we missed Raiatea altogether because we were late. To cap it all the ship lost propulsion and we were all cast into darkness, forcing it to anchor, as we drifted coming out of Sydney. There were serious ...

Review for a South Pacific Cruise on Carnival Luminosa

Luminosa is a mid-sized ship by today's standards; we found it generally clean and well-maintained. There was a small amount of vibration in places but very little engine or exhaust noise as found on other ships we have been on. It seems like a quiet, solid ship although we had very calm sailing and couldn't assess her stability. We found the air conditioning a bit cold for comfort in some ...

This was our first experience with P&O Australia and our expectations were not high. The 10 night cruise was to Papua New Guinea and consisted of four ports and six sea days. This cruise was sold out. Before we departed Brisbane Cruise Terminal the captain announced that due to civil unrest in Rabaul we would no longer be visiting that port. We were looking forward to Rabaul as this seemed to ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose Pacific Encounter because the itinerary included ports in Papua New Guinea that we were keen to visit and sample the culture. The check-in system at Brisbane Port is diabolically inadequate! After standing in a long line for more than 100 minutes to board the vessel, we eventually made it to our cabin. While we were unpacking an announcement from the captain told us that due to ‘civil ...

Chose this cruise to visit places we hadn't been to for a while. Wonderful time for a budget cruise. Balcony room was spotless. Stewards spoilt us .The staff were absolute legends, from the captain down, friendly patient efficient..loved them. Themed nights were same ol same ol. They should change them a bit..they were the same as the last cruise we were on. The music was most excellent "Solid ...
