10 Night cruise Sydney to Airlie, Cairns and Moreton Island

Review for Pacific Explorer to South Pacific

Boarding very slow as usual, but same for all ships. Hard to believe they make you tip out your unopened water bottle before you can enter ship. Entertainment - a bit slack really, the ship crew show was probably the best show up until final entertainer Grant Galea whom was excellent. Ship singers and dancers two shows were OK, but male singer voice was not so great. Other late night shows ...

We originally chose this cruise just as a quick cruise to take our grandchild along for some time away, and the price was great. After booking discovered it was The Elvis Tribute Cruise, this made us a bit worried as not Elvis fans, and 13y old grandchild didn't even know who it was. But we were so happy with the entertainment by the Elvis singers and backup bands even our granddaughter ...

This was a dream destination for us, postponed twice due to covid travel. The size of the ship is good for this area. Only 230 passengers so excellent service. And spends longer in this area than the big ships. The crew are all amazing, very quickly know your names. Nothing too much trouble. Food was excellent . We especially liked The Grill and dining by the pool in Bora Bora was ...

I have been on many cruises, however outstanding service on the pacific explorer - from food service, entertainment and housekeeping the explorer was great! A big thanks to Thomas Naulana who did a brilliant job in housekeeping - second to none. I would walk in the room after a clean and was extremely satisfied with this. Not only did he do a great job with this he also helped me with any ...

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 ...

This ship does not seem to have a lot of recent reviews so I will leave one. We did the 10-day Tuamoto cruise coupled with the regular 7-day Society Islands (Bora Bora etc.) cruise, so we were on the ship for 17 days in total. Another 20 or so of our fellow cruisers did the same thing, so we got to know a number of people during our time on-board. We really enjoyed the itinerary, the crew, the ...

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 ...

First Cruise Back!!!

This cruise was the first one back and I was so eager to get back on a cruise ship. I cruised solo on this trip. I have to confess that P&O aren't my favourite cruiseline, but after 27 months since my last cruise, I felt I had to be on this one. And I am glad I did. The atmosphere and crew were awesome. It was heavenly to feel the motion of the sea once more. Service was good, BUT I ...

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

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 ...
