My wife and 12 year old daughter enjoyed our family cruise . This being my first and my wife had been on two others . Overall the cruise , staff and experience was an enjoyable time .I was a bit surprised to find that the extra things fo entertainment were charged . I felt the cost of a 20 second zipline ride was way over the top . My friend who cruised on another company had experiences like the ...

having taken 71 previous cruises some (not many) with P&O I can honestly say I was disgusted with the whole cruise.there were only two good things one was the comfortable beds and the other was Mathew on the cruise staff who will go far if he moves to another line. second day in on our cruise to new guinea we ordered breakfast in the waterfront restaurant after waiting over one hour to have it ...

This was the inaugural cruise of P&O (J627) to Alotau, Kiriwana island and the Conflict Islands. While visiting these islands was new and a novelty, the Conflict island was a good destination and very enjoyable. I cannot recommend the P&O dining experience as breakfast was cheap, lunch just passable and dinner not too bad. Breakfast must be prepared by the company accountants as this is ...

Primarily value for money, @ $999.00 for an inside double cabin. The option was an outside cabin with totally obstructed views, could not see the point of paying an extra $100! Good points: food was good at the Pantry, with lots of options over the 11 days. The Waterfront was better with sit down service, with proper service to your table, NO extra cost, but you had to pre book for dinner, not ...

This is a account of many issues that occurred on our cruise that completed on the 27th May. Cruise J624 on the Pacific Jewel. We organised a holiday voyage to join up 3 separate family's as we all live apart from Melbourne up to Townsville. As we had kids, were advised to book ...

We travelled for a holiday to destress. The kids came with us and we have travelled before on 4 cruise. The last one was on he Princess Lines and that is the one we should have picked, not P&O (the big white cash box on the water). The kids club was crap. My two kids did not want to go down there on level 2 and count jelly beans and sit around and play the Wii. They were so disappointed ...
