3 night Comedy Cruise

Review for Pacific Explorer to South Pacific

3 night Comedy Cruise to nowhere Many time cruisers on many different ships and cruise lines. Cruised with P and O once prior. Expectations were not high and in some areas this cruise exceeded and others very let down. Fine for 3 nights. Would need to lift their game for longer. This cruise was all about our 11 year old granddaughter and for her it was wonderful. Ship decor...absolutely ...

It was the first cruise after a long pause and after many cancelled bookings we had to be on this one. Our previous cruise was on Ruby Princess in Feb of 2020 so our wait wasn't as long as it was for others but being able to cruise again gave us a sense of freedom that we can now actually resume our lives. The covid rules were obvious and while different didnt take away from the enjoyment of ...

As this was the first cruise after a two year break I booked this cruise on a whim and glad I did. The ship looked beautiful inside. The furniture and décor was bright and new looking. I think the ship may have been only 70% full due to Covid protocols which made it pleasant at the bars and much easier to find a seat to relax. We had lunch at Angelo's, Dragon Lady and Waterfront and ...

Nothing to do onboard - excursions were overpriced and many were sub-par

Review for Norwegian Spirit to South Pacific

We have sailed on NCL 5 times in the past and never had a bad experience before. This was only the second cruise for the Spirit since the ship returned to service after covid and it showed. It was fortunate the cruise was only half full, any more people onboard and it would have been a mess. The food was good, the main entertainment in the show lounge was excellent, but there was nothing to do ...

Worst cruise experience EVER

Wasnt the cruise we wanted. Nor. kept canceling , changing the rules on our desired cruises. Then told us we had to use our credits this year or lose them. $12,000. Numerous issues. We will never cruise on Nor. again. Despite what they say, their cruise app doesn’t work after you board. Lost out on many excursions as a result. Tried to force my wife through a metal detector, despite ...

Aranui 5 - Not recommended - No pleasure - Inedible food - Expensive

Review for Aranui 5 to South Pacific

We were for the second time on the Aranui 5 after a very nice trip to the Marquesan Islands in 2017. Our 2nd trip to Australis, on the other hand, was not enjoyable and a big disappointment. First the positive: the cabin (suite) was very good, but also cost € 15,600 for a double cabin with 12 days. Now everything else is to forget. The food on the ship was minimalistic. Breakfast was only from ...

We read about this half freighter/half cruiser about 20 years ago for the first time and always said we would do it one day. Well, when our Wind Spirit cruise in the South Pacific was cancelled, we were looking for another alternative and this was it! Wow, what an experience. This ship takes everything from baby food to cars to these remote islands every two weeks or so. The Marquesas are ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

In wanting to explore the South Pacific and the islands, we chose the small ship, The Paul Gauguin. The service and information available to us in preparation for the trip was superb. Each phone call was extremely helpful and thorough. Even at the Airport in LA they had a very gracious representative who welcomed us and gave us information that would be helpful. Once on the ship we were ...

Regent Explorer 19th January 2022 San Diego to Miami via Panama. Review In many ways it’s difficult to criticise this cruise /ship. The (superior) cabin was a good size, excellent with lots of storage, and bathroom excellent. The food was very good particularly the steaks which were the best we have had anywhere. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff were good, particularly the female drinks ...
