Room and Crew were lovely. Top price for very average food in package, lovely if you paid at one of the restaurants. Entertainment poor unless you liked Bingo or Trivia. Shows very basic. Booked for Rock and Roll-ended up being food and wine with charges for the food and wine tastings. Bronte and
Dom were just fantastic as was Chef Daniel. I also enjoyed the very rough weather! Many cruislings didn't, so pleased we did finally head out on Saturday morning as staying at White Bay Terminal would have been....the final straw!
Not a good experience for my first ever cruise.
we went on state of origin cruise in 2016 to syd would have to say it was the most enjoyable cruise we have done met some great people from both sides of the border and had plenty of friendly banter going back and forward,most meals in the plantation and dined with complete strangers each night but
by the end of the night they were like old friends.only down side was the trip out to the ground for the game we struck a bus driver who did not seem to know his way round syd to well and it took nearly two hours to get there different driver going back to the dawn 55 mins.all in all great trip and doing again this year on aria hope it is just as good and meet some old friends again plus some new ones.
Loved everything about our recent cruise on the Pacific Pearl. Staff were amazing! So much to do on board. What was so great was if you wanted to find a crowd you could but if you wanted to find a quiet place by yourselves that was just as easy. Went with my husband and loved it so much that we
booked to take the teenagers in October. I would highly recommend spending a bit more and get a window. Also if you get sea sick make sure to book on the lower floor in the middle of the ship. Oh and don't forget to take lanyards for your id. That was one thing no one told me about and you will pay more money on board to buy one when you can get these at the dollar store.
I have been on the Dawn on 3 cruises total 36 nights NZ, Fiji, Vanuatu. I have found it to be the best way of spending my hard earned money for a vacation. Everything is great about this ship and cruise line. Staff are so good at looking after you no matter what. Thanks to P & O also putting
together the premium drink package with my booking, makes the cruises very good value for money. Going on 4th cruise in June, can't wait to see the refurb
cairns to Sydney November 2016 wow we loved had the best time sailing under the Sydney harbour bridge was a dream come true.
food in the pantry was great perfect serving sizes very clean all staff very polite
cabin was excellent clean and very tidy
On wednesday morning 35 of us boarded the pacific Eden for my nieces wedding, we were pleasantly surprised with the wonderful and very profesional service we received, the wedding organiser did a marvelous job we highly recommend to anyone thinking of getting married aboard the Eden not to hesitate
as we all had a ball, thank you to each and everyone for setting up a beautiful venue, flowers and cake and making Amy and Pauls day one to remember always????????
Had an amazing time on Pacific Pearl. The crew were fantastic and had such an enjoyable and relaxing time. Great time of year to sail, beautiful weather and the atmosphere was wonderful. Thanks too to Cruise Sale Finder as you make the whole process so easy.
Had the best time on the cruise..
Fantastic food, had the best Cabin Steward - always professional, most of the crew were great.
Kids loved the kids club and activities. You cant say you get bored - you just have to pick the best to do as there is so much to do.
The only negative I have is the staff at the pool bar on deck 12. Not very friendly at all, and when your spending the majority of your money there, they could at least put a smile on there face..
Otherwise it was a perfect family holiday :)
This was my first cruise on Pacific Dawn & I had no idea of what to expect. The first day was overwhelming with the amount of people moving around but is settled down on the second day after we had explored the ship. The staff are wonderful and always willing to help. Its an easy holiday if your
life is hectic, Get aboard, relax, get fed, room cleaned, entertainment always happening. We found unlike most holidays were your looking for a place to eat lunch/dinner & sightseeing or things to keep you occupied a cruise is easy all you could want in one place, no driving! We will be going on another cruise this year.
The Food is fantastic and plenty on offer. We enjoyed the night time Entertainment & late night movie in the show room. Bingo is a laugh. You can be around people & socialise if you feel or stay in your room relax & enjoy a movie. The staff are wonderful always happy to help. Room Staff did not stop working, your room was cleaned the moment you left, Shoes neatly in a row, clothes picked up off the floor. Easy no brainer holiday. No cash on board just swipe your cruise card pay on the day of departure.
