Dated Ship

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Explorer

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We were on a 4 night sailing Adelaide-Pt Lincoln-Kangaroo Island-Adelaide in Feb 2024. Deck 10 balcony cabin. Cabin was dated. Loose tap in bathroom sink and one of the bedside lights non operational (although did turn itself on at 3am one morning). Food quality was good with the Dragon Lady and Angelo's restaurant excelling. Selection of different foods in The Pantry on Deck 14 but the ...

Worst cruise experience

Review for a Transpacific Cruise on Pacific Encounter

Sam Hsu
6-10 Cruises • Age 30s

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 ...

Perfectly Fine

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Explorer

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

I chose an interior cabin. There should have been two travelling but I ended up solo. That was not a problem at all. I have travelled extensively by myself and carry a book everywhere. If I wanted a conversation, I could always find someone to talk with. If not, I read my book. Yes, the ship could do with an upgrade but it was kept spotlessly clean by the amazingly busy cleaning crew. My ...

Very sad

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Adventure

Sugo
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise (P&O Pacific Adventure) to be with the family and it was a short cruise. Sadly the food was really bad, we even gave the chef of the Italian restaurant cart blanche to make a meal with lots of veggies. It was more Thai than Italian and very unhealthy to eat. With very few veggies. The shows were very loud too. The dancers had great energy but sadly they killed a lot of ...

Karaoke was the absolute best. Complete highlight of my cruise

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Explorer

I am on my last night of my 5 day cruise from Melbourne to Kangaroo Island and I have had the best time. The staff and crew have been nothing short of amazing. James and Leo who are bar staff in the Explorer lounge were brilliant. I can't believe i forgot his name but he was our amazing waiter from day one, he worked in the black circus as well as oasis. Honestly one of the most amazing humans i ...

P&O Pacific Adventure- Tips incl Drinks Prices

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Adventure

NJC75
2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

Great cruise. Port visits were fantastic. Recommend preselecting the rotational dining in the restaurants, saves the hassle of booking the restaurants once onboard. Restaurant food ok, Angelo’s being the highlight. Dragon Lady was not that good. Definitely recommend Blanc de Blanc show - worth the extra cost. Shore tours cheaper when booked direct rather than via ship. Bingo has ...

Let down!

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Adventure

Let down greatly
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We have cruised on PO Explorer a couple of times, this is our 8th Cruise in total. PO Adventure is the worst of the lot! The menu is repetitive in the main buffet area, the desserts were a 2/10 very hit and miss. The Dragon lady restaurant that use to be our favourite ia completely different, main stream Chinese food and not unique or interesting at all. Angelo's leaves a lot to be desired. The ...

Comedy cruise

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Explorer

SalLovesCruising
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Never again, poor quality food, bad service, rubbish comedy, no BIG name comedians which I should have guessed when booking as they did not say who would be headlining. Never have I had such a small balcony cabin and have cruised several other cruise lines. DO NOT purchase internet, you will be lucky to have it a full day at a time. Very boring cruise and could not wait to get off. I have ...

Apart from service there was nothing good

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Pacific Explorer

Davey son
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

The ship (Pacific Explorer) itself was old and dated but overall in fair condition. We booked an the cheap internal room - our plan was to only use it to sleep in and be using the "extensive" facilities at other times. The staff were very friendly As with all cruise lines they offered a combination of included restaurants and specialty ones. This ship however did not have a communial ...
