Hassle free booking. 0 , QLD, Australia, Jun 2024
Hannah took great care of us from beginning to end. Answered any questions we had, promptly and efficiently. This was our first ever cruise and booking through Global Journeys made the process easy. The cruise was wonderful. We had a great time and have decided that we will be going on future cruises. Antarctica is definitely on our bucket list!
Wonderful time! Would like to organise another cruise please Rachael.   0 , WA, Australia, Apr 2024
Thank you Rachael for organising this trip for us. Faye and I really enjoyed the cruise. We didn’t want it to end! The crew were amazing as was the food and the shows. P&O knows how to give cruisers a good time! Once again, thanks!
80's Party revival   3 , VIC, Australia, Feb 2024
First experience on a cruise for both of us, we had an amazing time, plenty to do, great music and entertainment and fancy dress to turn back time. Food was great and drinks are normal prices. We will do it again!
Five days to Melbourne 7 , New Zealand, Nov 2023
Worst cruise we ever have done! Cabin on the bow of the ship, nearest elevator the length of half the ship away. All so called complimentary dining venues sold out. Left only meals upstairs, always full and hard to get a table, walking with a walker and getting food was impossible! NEVER again on P&O Australia!
Tonga and Fiji cruise with P & O Explorer   2 , New Zealand, Nov 2023

Nice cruise to Fiji 8 , New Zealand, Nov 2023
The trip was amazing weather not so go but no much you can do about it we all loved and will do it again.
