Very Average Cruise

|

We chose this cruise as we have never been to WA and thought it would be a great way to see Perth, up to Broome and then the Margaret River region. This was our second cruise and we were pretty disappointed. Nothing ...

Overal experience was average.

Just returned from a trip up the West Australian coast first ocean cruise to experience what a longer cruise would be like. Have recently done excellent river cruises through Europe. The Pacific Eden is a rust ...

Beautiful, Relaxing Cruise

Because we wished to see the West coast of Australia, I must say all about the ship was very good, I think those that complain must be a little hard to please. I found the food in the Pantry to be most ...

Value for Money

A total cost of $412 for 3 adults and unlimited food in Pantry and Waterfront for a 2-night cruise Sdy-Mel in a inside cabin. It is definitely value for money. We did not spend any other money during the cruise. ...

Fabulous Holiday on a Great Ship

We had a fabulous time on the Pacific Eden. Honestly, it was our best holiday ever. We loved our balcony cabin, lots of room, fridge, lounge area, plenty of storage. The stewards, waiters and entertainment crew ...

Decent value for money

I think the reason for the negative reviews on this ship is that people have champagne tastes on a beer budget. I went on a 3 night Food & Wine cruise and really enjoyed it. This was my first cruise, and given ...

Our first cruise - disappointing

Our family recently experienced what a horrible cruise is all about. The first moment we embarked on board we were greeted by phantom service - there was no smiles, or hello welcome aboard, nothing. Quite different ...

Finally went on a cruise.

Seriously it was not that bad. It is a small ship like a boutique hotel only this hotel floats. The staff from the Stewards to the waiters and entertainers were so friendly and very accommodating. We had a few minor ...

First trial at cruising to Mornington Peninsula

We booked the cruise long before we realised it was a renovated ship, rather than a brand new ship, and before it made its maiden journey in Australia. This was our first ever cruise and 4 nights seemed a good idea ...

You get what you pay for.

My wife wanted to take me on this short cruise to see how I would cope on a longer cruise in the future and to determine what my expectations were. We were able to get a good deal on the suite (10030) as it was ...

We feel so ripped off; stay away from P&O Eden!

Where to start? First time on a cruise and so bitterly disappointed. Following a three hour embarkation delay to disinfect the ship, my husband and I walked up the gangplank into utter chaos;. No one to greet or ...

Christmas Cruise Fun

This was our first cruise and we couldn't have been happier. The ship did show age in some areas, but this didn't mean our experience was affected. The Pantry offered food of club food standard which was fine ...

Loved everything, especially the staff!

My husband and I spent our first wedding anniversary on this ship. And I couldn't have asked for a better mini break. We had a ball, and can't wait to get on another cruise. We were lucky enough to meet and have ...

A new low in hospitality standards

Sold as a shiny new ship, Pscific Eden was floating chaos. Fresh from dry dock, most of the public areas were shiny and new, yes, but that's where any similarity to The Love Boat ended. The majority of staff on ...
