Why try others when you have found the best ..... just out from a refit in Singapore and the improvements have been exactly that ... "improvements" and as great as it was last September, it is now better ..... service, food selections, entertainment possibilities, and price width ......... great mate

3 night food n wine on pacific jewel was great. Boarding was easy and quick, as was departing. Lunch is served on the first day even though ship doesn't depart until 4pm. So don't have lunch. Cabins are clean and exactly what you'd expect. Bathroom adequate. Food was reasonable for the price. Plenty of variety at The Pantry. Tried 'SALT'... More

All 3 of us FIRST AND LAST TIME CRUISERS hated it.. from the minute of boarding being delayed 4 hrs then being told when on board that one of our ports PORT VILLA has been cancelled and now only stopping at Noumea and Mare.. oh but they think its sufficient enough to credit each cabin with $200 on board credit.....

There had been some negative reviews of this ship but we loved it. Our stewards were great and very friendly. There was one waiter that was quite rude so my wife did inform the restaurant manager of this waiter's attitude and the issue was addressed immediately. The ports we visited we great. The activities were good but a bit repetitive... More

This cruise exceeded my expectations. Good value for pricing, and the kids absolutely loved it, we wished we were on a two week cruise rather than just one! Staff were great, kids facilities were included in the price and take kids in kids club from age two upwards (provided they are toilet trained.). That's open until 10:30, after which baby... More

My family and I have just returned from the 7 night Island hopper cruise. This was our 4th P & O cruise and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes the ship is looking a little tired and yes the food has its ups and downs but your not paying 5 star prices. Out of the 3 ports, Noumea, Lifou and Port... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 7 night cruise out of Brisbane on the Pacific Dawn and I cannot agree with other comments on here that said they had a great time. Our first experience on boarding was this ear bashing thumping noise which was so called music, just noise. We ate in both restaurants which the... More

Greatest 70th family birthday outing. 7 days at sea. No cooking. No dishes. Fabulous food and great wine selection. Daytime the pool, nighttime the casino or bingo or one of the many bars. Just do it if you need to gather family/friends for a very spcial occasion. Not nearly as Twee as I thought it might be. Mixing with the... More
