Pacific Aria PNG cruise, don’t understand all the complaints!!!

published

I read many negative reviews of the Pacific Aria and was very worried about our cruise to PNG. We arrived home today and all I can say is that the people who wrote the reviews must be extremely fussy. Our balcony cabin was very comfortable with a great mattress and pillows. Yes the decor was a little dated but really how much time do you actually spend in your cabin. The food in the Waterfront, Angelos and Dragon Lady was great, not al la carte but yummy just the same. Salt for an extra fee was amazing. The entertainment team were hilarious and put on some great shows. Shore tours were very well organised. Live music in the bars was a must do every evening. I would highly recommend this cruise.

Great cruise, great food and friendly staff

published

I have no idea why people have given negative reviews about the Aria. Maybe they expected the Queen Mary. If you're a snob then spend 3 times the amount on one that comes with your own butler.
My wife and I enjoyed our Christmas cruise to Vanuatu and Fiji immensely. The staff were very friendly and the food in all restaurants was first rate. The bed was super comfy.
The friends we made on board all loved it.
The only down side was the slow internet speed.
If you're thinking of a cruise then go on the Aria.
You will have a ball.

Life Photography well worth the money

published

Just got home from a cruise on the Aria! Just want to give Luis from Life Artist photography a mention. Even though the photos are more than I wanted to spend, I am so happy with the outcome. Well worth the money if you want portraits taken! Memories for life!

Money grabbing

published

Absolutely horrible company. Their crew are lovely. But massively underpaid. Everything on the cruise is overpriced and they will save money wherever they can. Especially at the expense of their passengers. I will never give a cent of my money to this terrible company again.

First time cruisers

Our trip started from Brisbane to Airlee beach on 9 August in and ended on 14 August 2019. Our cabin was perfect and close to the lifts. The food was excellent at all the venues. The cherry on top was the entertainment and the 4 organisers. Names starting with Co and Ca and Mj and Ge. I really enjoyed their humor and love for people. Thank you P&O.

Wouldn't give us 20 min to get from delayed flight

Totally inflexible!!!! They don't give "A crap"
Extra cost to fly from NZ to Fiji & Accommodation, and not even the "gesture" of an onboard Restaurant Voucher.....considering P&O have saved on 3 Nights Food and Servicing of Room.

Toilets badly need work

Traveled from Auckland around Fiji and Tonga. Food just great, service impeccable staff the best. But toilets very unsafe because they kept blocking. The poor staff. Someone will get sick.

Hopeless call centre

published

Booking online was easy and simple. However, after logging into the cruiseling portal, we were unable to allocate the correct people to the correct rooms. So we called the call centre. In broken English, they offered to put the correct people into the correct rooms, with a $50 rebooking fee for each! This is our first experience with P&O. At this rate, it will probably be our last.
