Life Photography well worth the money

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

published

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

published

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.

Poor Experience

published

Went on 7 night cruise on Pacific Aria. No complaints about the ship itself or the food. Pantry is always packed and overcrowded though, so do yourself a favour and book dinner at restaurants. Unfortunately the respect and courtesy by P&O for the passengers is very minimal, we got woken up almost every morning by staff or maintenance workers making noise, sometimes it was as early as 6am, not good enough as we wanted to have a relaxing holiday, as you would expect on a cruise (or we thought anyway). Drink package prices are a money gouge. As far as we are concerned, P&O are only interested in emptying your pockets once your on board, and we will never travel with them again.

Medical report

My husband needed to see the medical team which cost over $1200. Been waiting nearly 5 weeks and each weekly call has been "I'll re email them to follow up",

Australia Day cruise

published

When we booked in Brisbane, the fireworks in Sydney Harbour was the main attraction but itinerary was obviously changed between February and January. Instead we had a 6pm sail away from Sydney to the Look Like a Legend competition with many many passengers crowded on two back decks listening to loud music and unable to see or hear anything. The competition was badly organised and staff were all giving different information. What a disappointment! And it is all happening again next year.

Do you P and O read these reviews and if so, why Oh why dont you do something about them? My last cruise on P and O went to Kangaroo island and getting off there and the other ports were the highlights. The beds were like rocks and food lacked imagination. I have cruised many times recently and would love to cruise with you again but until you pick up the ball, my fiends and I will go elsewhere. I hope you rad tis one and do something about this and the other dreadful reviews.
