It's not slow all the time, in fact, tonight, it's pretty quick. Just depends on the time of day you are on and how much traffic is on the satellite.

Hi everyone,
In Lifou today. Weather is perfect.

Haven't seen any major problems with the ship, yes it is older, but there is continual work going on. The past couple of days, they've been...

If that was the opposite side of the river from the terminal, at the end of a little street, then yes, I was waving to some people there. I was the really tall guy at the back of the ship on the top...

I'm not upset about missing Noumea at all, plus, they gave us all a $150 shipboard credit for missing the port.

After some asking around yesterday, I found out why we were late leaving. A...

I'm sitting here at the Transit Centre, waiting for the transfer to the ship. Suprise suprise, it has been delayed for a couple of hours. Yes, we are using the new terminal today, it is going to be a...

Too right. I'm departing on the 19th and just had my agent call P&O, asking where we will depart from. They still claim to know nothing and advised me to call back within 2 days of sailing. Under no...
Yeah, that's the day. I called P&O a couple of...
Yeah, that's the day. I called P&O a couple of weeks ago and they said they had no idea when it will be in operation and that will let everyone know if there's a change. For some reason though, I...
I hope P&O let us all know if we have to go to...
I hope P&O let us all know if we have to go to the new terminal. It will be very annoying to turn up at the transit centre only to be told to make our way to the terminal, considering I will have to...
It is good news, however, I hope they make...
It is good news, however, I hope they make allowances and transfers to the Transit Centre for the people who have made arrangements from there, given that the information given by P&O in my documents...

On a recent trip to Melbourne, I stayed in a very expensive, 5 star hotel. Upon entering the room, I found rubbish still in the bin and crumbs on the table. So, if it can be overlooked in a place...

I know it's not a new ship, but it's a new addition to the P&O Australia brand.

Hi Sam,
I'm leaving on the Star on 19th August. I've already got my ticket with an assigned cabin, yet CP still says error. However, we originally booked on Caribe Deck Inside, then we were bumped...

Hi Cazzy,
It depends if you're asking about P&O UK or P&O AUS. Australia's new ship "Pacific Dawn" will be sailing from Sydney in October 2007. There are lots of other threads about her that have...

Thanks for the warning. I'd like to think they wouldn't try that caper on us, I'm 6'7" and pretty solid and my mate isn't much smaller, so hopefully they will be too scared to try anything :p
Thanks Narelle, will keep that in mind. How well...
Thanks Narelle, will keep that in mind. How well do the drivers speak english and is it easy to negotiate with them?

Thanks for the info Phil, it really helps me make my decision. I don't think I will spend my money on it if there's not a whole lot to see.

Rallo, this person probably just had a bad personal experience or went with too high expectations after travelling Princess and RCI. It's best to go with an open mind and make your own judgements...
