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 ...

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 ...

Nice for a short trip; I wouldn't go longer.

This was the first cruise my family took together - mum, dad, 2 kids plus grandma. Princess Cruises upgraded my mum's cabin so she can have one next door to us. That was nicely done Princess on a sold out cruise. ...

Highly Satisfactory First Cruise

As first-time cruisers we weren't sure what to expect, or how a small ship like Astor compares with a 4,000 passenger monster. We were attracted by the bargain rate of $900 for two people for five nights. If the ...

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 ...

OK, 35 nights cruising for one's first cruise could be problematic! NOT loved the cruising, despised the European cruise staff. Best bits: Our dinner table companions (overwhelmingly the best thing about ...

Anyone that will listen don't go MSC.

My wife and I embarked in Fremantle with our young Son in Perth, it was super slow embarkation. We left our bags with MSC staff as requested at 3pm, we did not get our bags again until 10:30pm when they were ...

Maiden Royal Caribbean Cruise

It was our very first RC cruise. Overwhelming is an understatement, we didn't know what to look at or do first. Finding our way around the ship for the first 2 days was the biggest challenge. Of course the kids ...

First cruise...won't be the last!

It was a leap of faith to choose this cruise as our first but either through luck or good judgement we really chose well. The ship was, in our opinion, 5 star in every aspect; comfortable, clean, superb staff, ...
