Not the place to go for a solo birthday

Each year for my birthday I choose to treat myself to a holiday as I live alone and normally people are friendly and fun. The price for the getaway on Pacific Eden was a bargain. However, the dining experience ...

Disgraceful disrespect to your customers and the P&O Name

So embarrassed to have talked up and sell cruising to good friends of mine as a fun, exciting and wonderful way to holiday and party with your mates. I have never complained or posted negative reviews in my life. ...

This cruise was from Sydney to adelaide, so it worked perfect for my friend and I who live in both of these places. Loved leaving from Sydney harbour and how they played some opera music I thought that was awesome. ...

Okay but nowhere near the standard of other cruise lines I have been on before

We took this short, 4 day local cruise because my husband has recently become disabled and wheelchair dependent, and we both wanted to see how we would manage by ourselves on a cruising holiday with his ...

Mixed thoughts

Run down and no care as this ship is sold already, not a lot of activities to do during sea days that’s when the staff decide to show up and run them anyway. The air con in our room did not work at all (along ...

100 times BETTER than Holland America (Canada trip, 2017) at a third the price!

Our 3rd P&O short cruise - this one for 40th Wedding Anniversary. We booked a suite, 10010, and P&O offered special services for suite customers. So did Holland America (HM) but they failed to deliver on all counts ...

Value for money, relaxing holiday, just don't expect upmarket luxury

The objective of our first cruise was to get to places best accessed from the sea and to return to past haunts: the destination, not the journey. Thanks to the reviews on this site and elsewhere we had a good idea ...

Great cruise and ship - far better than Princess

We did the Eden cruise departing Cairns on 27 July to New Guinea. We are sorry that P&O has sold this ship on, as we found it to be a delightful, smaller ship. We hope her sister ship, Pacific Aria, will be as ...
