Interesting to read how many people have taken exception to OP's suggestion that "showing off" may have been involved and accused him of racism yet at least one newspaper (The Age in Melbourne) has...

Hi Leggyliz: We only did the one shore tour in Port Vila. it was good although quite expensive. We went because we had already been to Port Vila and i knew the kids wouldn't want to walk around the...

The cocktails the night I tested them were from the Plantations bar. I didn't try MIX as they seemed to be more expensive but maybe I should have:)! They were still delicious - especially the...

Croydon Cruiser, You will really notice the difference in space. I loved how roomy the ship felt. P.S. I'm originally from Kilsyth so it's nice to talk to an almost neighbour.

OBC Question
I have a problem that I'm hoping one of you clever cruisers can help me with. I've booked a cruise with an online TA on pacific pearl anwith an oBC of $250. When talking to a P&O rep about another...

Are you sure you're not confusing it with Dunk Island off the coast of Cairns which was badly damaged in Cyclone Yasi?

If it's another P&O cruise, chances are you will get an upgrade to an outside cabin. We have for our past two cruises and my TA said P&O usually upgrade past passengers automatically. But even if you...

While I love that Pacific Pearl is going to be sometimes based in Auckland I am disappointed that there are no Auckland cruises during school holidays in 2011 (except for january). We will probably...

Hiring a car to drive from Mt Maunganui to Rotorua is a viable option but make sure to allow plenty of time to get back to the ship. The road can get very busy around 4-6pm, especially around TePuke....

If you are hiring a car I suggest you make sure you have insurance and make sure you leave plenty of time to get back to the ship as travelling times between Tauranga and Rotorua can be impossible to...

Thanks Trish for such an honest review. I'm glad your experience hasn't put you off cruising. I'm sure your next cruise will be the relaxing cruise you need. It certainly sounds like you had lots of...

Hi Trish
Glad you had a good night sleep. I would be upset at missing Lifou and Mystery Island too. They are two of my favourite ports. The tender system sounds like it was nightmare. We had such a...

Such a shame your trip has been so bad. Mother Nature can be cruel. Hope you all get back without any more problems. Look forward to your review.

We tend to get to the wharf about 11.30 and we are usually onboard by 12.30. It's quite relaxed at that time and we can settle into our cabin and get to the Lido deck for lunch before it gets...

We didn't arrive into Auckland until about 10.00 am last Friday morning. They actually disembarked everyone really quickly. We were one of the last off and we were off by 11.30 but a lot of people...

Can only help you with Dravuni and Suva. You definitely need Fijian dollars in Suva but you can use ATMs. We found the exchange rate much better through the ATM. The ship was only offering $1Fiji to...

You're right, photoshop type classes would be good. I guess I was imagining more school lecture type programmes. And more variety is always good but I do love my trivia! Even experienced trivia rage...

Thanks for that info. I dont think I could quite cope with art auctions, writing rooms and "enrichment" programmes as advertised in the Princess brochures!
