Booked two Suite cabins #11117 and #11116 - Cabin was ok but a little dated - clean and reasonable size - bed was comfortable, but pillows cheap and hard. Cabin attendants were really good. When you book a suite ...

Food & Wine

I took 18 elderly(70 up to 98) folk on the 4 day cruise as a real treat from our club. We choose the one that just went to sea as a lot had no passports and most importantly once on board it was safer than going to ...

Last minute cruise; it was uplifting, healing, exciting and relaxing.

We had to cancel our 4x4 trip to the Simpson desert. I was looking forward to this trip , the car was ready and the bags was packed. Then my husband had to have an emergency hip replacement. This would have been ...

Excellent ship for a sea break

We only booked this short cruise break a few weeks ago. It was a very good price and the guaranteed balcony cabin, although near the elevators, was actually very quiet. The passengers seemed to be in high spirits ...

Smooth Sailing

Pacific Eden is a pretty ship. I liked the fact that it was smaller than other cruise ships mainly because I liked the feel of the movement of the ship over the waves. I slept like a baby every night and afternoon ...
