"First time cruisers, mid twenties. Slightly apprehensive after reading the reviews but we thought - we will make our own fun if all else fails. Essentially we wanted some drinks and sun - all in all we weren't..."Read More

I personally enjoyed my cruise with my family very much! We spend 10 nights on the Pacific Aria and it was awesome! Cons: -We had to skip one of the islands (Kitava) as the weather of the sea was too strong for the wee boats to take us to the island. -If there are announcements about the activities throughout the day you can't really hear them from your cabin without opening your door (we ...

Having downsized our large property after our children left home we’re now in a situation where we can spend money on traveling to the places that we have been dreaming about for years, the question was where to start first? Having done a reasonable amount of Australia when our children were growing up, we decided that a trip to our local House of Travel in Motueka to investigate cruising was the ...

Aria looked, sounded, should have been great. P&O have have always been our go to cruise line. Alas, no more, Pantry food was simply disgusting, almost inedible in general and whoever heard of turnips for every meal as veges! I hit the wall 4 nights in where my body said no more. I simply couldn't eat any more bad food. The other restaurants were ok but helpings were small unless I paid for ...

This is the first cruise for my husband and I, and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived at the port in Brisbane to when we had to disembark, everything was perfect. We were lucky with the weather until the last 2 days, but nobody can control that. We found all the crew friendly, helpful and professional, it couldn't have been better, they really have a big job to do, and ...

We travelled in a group of 4 couples on this short cruise from Brisbane and had a very good time. The main entertainment was several comedy shows, some rated PG which were (usually) ok for children, and some R rated for the adult themes and language. We preferred the PG rated shows, which showcased the quick minds of the comedians without the swearing. I think that the nature of the cruise ...

As we haven’t yet cruised (5th cruise) on the P & O Aria and it was leaving from Brisbane to a destination not visited before (Tonga) we decided to book an 18 night cruise. We were very satisfied with our room as it was very clean and comfortable. We like how the Staff in the Pantry dishes up your choices of foods, great infection control. Unfortunately the quality of the food provided in ...

Noise level at night in our cabin on the 9th level was so loud.Air Conditioning right through out the ship freezing cold and in our cabin no adjustment ...

I am going to cut to the chase, the only reason any people would give this cruise a good review is that they have either never cruised before and therefor have nothing to compare this against or they have no standards themselves! It was second rate rubbish from start to finish. The food in The Pantry is appalling and I was served only one hot meal in 9 days!! Oh and do not waste your time ...

I have travelled with P&O before and therefore I had fairly low expectations as I know they are at the low end of the cruising spectrum. But we still had fun on our first P&O cruise and so when friends asked us to join them on another we decided to accompany them. I wish we hadn't gone!!.... P&O ignored the very public travel warnings advising all vessels.. including cruise ships NOT to ...
