Review for Seven Seas Explorer to South Pacific

New Zealand passed requirements for cleaning ship’s hull’s to prevent invasive species from entering their territorial water’s in 2018. We are currently on the RSSC Explorer for a 2 week cruise from Auckland to Sydney. The sailing just before us was to start in Sydney and was to end in Auckland. That sailing was denied entry into New Zealand waters due to RSSC Explorer hull ...

Our group of ten embarked upon what we thought would be a great NYE cruise experience, unfortunately this did not occur as the negatives outweighed the positives. Positives where great staff in the restaurants, bars and our cabin attendant. Also the boarding and disembarking process efficient. Negatives, the food quality in the main dining room was terrible. Actually, the buffet and smaller ...

A Holiday away from the “holidays”

We had sailed on Seabourn 10 years ago to the Mediterranean and this time from Auckland to Sydney with stops on the east coast of New Zealand and the south of Australia. We wanted to escape the frenzied holidays at home and found on this cruise a delightful Christmas with caroling and Santa arriving by Zodiac to dancing on the pool deck for a fun New Year’s Eve with everyone from the ship in ...

Christmas cruise - overall positive

First time on Carnival (RC, Princess & P&O) & first Christmas cruise. Mum & 2 teens (O2 club); Sister booked a last minute cabin. Knew another family, so linked them to be part of our travel group (for MDR). Festive displays helped lessen the pink themed public areas (although the decor in the room corridors was nice). Although the MDR is called the golden pearl, it’s hard not to see it ...

Review for Paul Gauguin to South Pacific

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

My spouse and I have cruised with 8 different cruise lines and we agree Paul Gauguin has been the most overrated based on critic and passenger reviews we read prior to booking and also the most overpriced. First of all, the ship itself is quite tired/dated looking both inside and out, therefore needs a complete makeover. On a positive note, it’s clearly an older ship thus the rooms and bathrooms ...

This was our first cruise on RSSC Explorer and we were hoping it would live up to it's 6 star rating. Unfortunately it did not. However, we did enjoy the ship, the food and the entertainment ( leaving aside the comedian). We booked the 3 day pre cruise in Singapore and I for one enjoyed myself not having been to Singapore in 20 years, so much has changed and so much more to see. Marina Bay ...

A slap in the face!

The Viking ad is correct. What there is not enough of is time. We booked the extended Regent cruise from Singapore to Auckland. Australia had several stops. Most of which were kept. New Zealand in 2018 passes a requirement for all ships entering their waters to have their hulls cleaned prior to doing so. Yet Regent never could arrange for it. Upon being noticed that the Seven Seas was barred ...

Second Rate, poor value for money

Review for Celebrity Eclipse to South Pacific

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise because we had sailed pre Covid with Solstice and had had a wonderful time. However, this cruise was extremely disappointing and we will never choose this line again. These are some of the reasons, Mask wearing was barely encouraged for passengers and was minimal. The staff all wore them. However, Covid was spreading as a result. Two out of our party of eight ...

Relaxing cruise despite an inferior itinerary

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We had already decided to make the best of the cuts to our itinerary (7 stops down to 4), as this was our firstcruise in 3 years, and we were also introducing our friends to cruising! The ship is beautiful, yes, you can see she needs some work, general areas need some refurbishment, chairs need reupholstering, but she is still lovely! Boarding was amazing! We were to board at 12, and were ...

Definitely Not a 5 Star Experience

Review for Paul Gauguin to South Pacific

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have just finished the Paul Gauguin 7 day Society Islands cruise. It was a very disappointing experience for many reasons. Firstly, the ship is old, and although the public areas have had a tasteful refit, the cabins, and specifically the bathrooms are dreadful. Replacing a shower curtain over a bath with a static glass panel, so that you have to lean right in to turn on and adjust the water ...
