I enjoyed the cruise overall and it was quite good value. However, the food left a great deal to be desired. The a la carte restaurant served dishes that were often cold, tasteless and poorly presented. Crew was friendly and generally the service was good.
cruises are what you make it

I have been on this ship twice now it is not my favorite ship or liner but I will say that our cabin had to be one of the best I have had, cruises are what you make of them, First time on this ship was with my husband and some friends we had a ball ,the meals were a bit small but we figured out that we could order two so were happy and full. We had the choise of going to the shows or not and if we were not enjoying then could get up and walk out ( it wasn't as if we were losing any money ) we found the staff friendly and obliging and the Islands great with the tenders crew so helpfull and quick. if you expect to much and are not prepared to put in the time to enjoy yourself than you won't. but if you go on with the thought that you are going to have a great time than you can, I am looking at booking my next two in the next few weeks with family and friends, it is the cheapest way to holiday. If you have a complaint about something tell the crew so they can fix it, not to everyone else just so you can have somthing to say and have a grumble
some traps

Pacific Pearl is a money maker.

I think P and O stands for Profit at every Opportunity. They are there to screw money out of you. Be warned.

But the cruise can still be fantastic.

Some positives were the range of activities, the floorshows [ albeit in a second class venue ] the general warmth of the non-British crew and the sheer excitement of being onboard and the places visited. the use of tender boats was excellent. Lifou, Isle of Pines and Mare are gorgeous.


Some warnings-- avoid a cabin with children or babies next door, the walls are paper thin and you wont get any sleep. Big deal.
Also avoid a cabin on deck 6. Early in the moring they clean the 7th deck and bang the structure and it sounds like a bell in your cabin.

Dont expect there to be many Aussies on the crew. There are mnay Brits though-- some with a special 'who cares 'arrogance that wears a bt thin at times.

The 'Retail therapists' were an annoyance, vain, ego driven and so in need of customer service training. Still there were some good buys to be had.

The entertainment was fine, the meals were good enough, the service from those in PR roles was very British [ could learn customer skills from Asian cruise staff on other lines i suggest} Still it was only a 3 star experience-- and you get what you pay for.

Crew all seem a bit tired.

Watefront meals were adequate-- Plantation buffet meals were also generally ok--but a bit like a cafeteria-- served on trays and never enough seats.

But-- the success is up to you to make it a fantastic trip. just don rely on the Brits in charge to boerther to assist you do so.

Happy cruising.
