I'm devastated P&O are not having the Luke Mangan Salt Grill on Explorer and are replacing it with a pizza restaurant and a burger restaurant (which cost extra). I cook these at home! I wanted fine dining!!

Are you able to find out if they will have the thermal suite on Explorer please?

Can't find any information about cost of food etc..

Will be a contributing factor deciding between this and a RCI cruise for next year.

I'd like to know about the Penthouse suite. Can't find much info anywhere, what's included, what if any reno's are being done, etc. Our cruise is in October and would like to know what to look forward to.

Hi, we're doing our first ever cruise departing Sydney 30th August for a 10-night Barrier Reef trip on Pacific Explorer.

Can you please tell me if there will be tea/coffee making facilities in our room, like in a hotel (kettle, mugs, milk, coffee etc)? We have booked a mini-suite, room 10079.

Also, is there soap/shampoo supplied daily like in a hotel?

sorry to ask these basic questions but since it's our first cruise we have no idea.

Thank you.

Lynda

Hi there. Where will the explorer depart from. Is there a kids club on board? Are you having to pay for a lot of extras for shows once on board?

400 Gradi entrees cost $4 - $9, pizzas $12 - $16, desserts $6 - $7.
Will double check Black Circus tomorrow...
