- Interesting ports of call
- Friendly locals
- Great to be part of the Alotau Canoe Festival held each year in November
- Good (but expensive) shore tours- Great friendly staff on ship
- Good entertainment and food on board
- Still very good value for money
The not so good points were:
- Ship (Pacific Dawn) looking quite tired and not as well maintained as expected
- Level of services has dropped and staff seem busier than on previous cruises (this was our 4th with P&O Australia)
- Very hot and humid climate
- Tender service very slow at 2nd port - improved for other ports after many passenger complaints
Overall, I would recommend this cruise as an alternative destination to the Pacific Islands.
We loved our delux balcony room. Plenty of room and a bonus to have a sofa. The bed was a good queen/king and very comfortable. Our agent put us in the mid ship which was perfect.
The food was of the highest standard. Entertainment was broadway equivalent. There were a lot of added extras from a previous cruise with a Norwegian ship (which we had the priveledge of doing 3 weeks earlier around the Hawaiian Islands).
To be honest it was night and day as far as cruise ships go.
A pleasure all round. My husband and I have spoken about our trip (including the cruise) - a trip of a life-time. We wouldn't do anything different if we had a chance. Perfect holiday.
This huge ship is divine. Our stateroom was extremely well appointed, quite roomy with lots of storage space for clothes, suitcases etc. We travelled Concierge class, which gave us a few extra add-ons, but ordinary staterooms are at the same standard.
To be honest, we could not fault the ship! The crew were wonderfully friendly, the organisation of the tours, meals, excursions, everything was top class. the ship itself was palatial.
I think, the people that run the Celebrity Reflection, could run a small country, they are that well organised!
Will do it again(soon).
The only thing we would say to anyone doing a cruise is to eat the food because its good but do some walking inbetween.
Overall great value, excellent service, just right length, but lacking leisure activities and too 'Americanised' for us.
