Average 1 , QLD, Australia, Aug 2022
We were disappointed in that we asked friends to cruise with us and their rooms were very poor indeed. The rooms at the end of the ship had such serious vibrations that neither could sleep properly on several nights. The staff were great. The food was excellent. The trouble is if you get no sleep who wants to go? One couple was compensated with ...read more a free meal on the last night. I feel bad because I recommended the the cruise. It won't be happening again!
Sailing up the Queensland coast 0 , QLD, Australia, Aug 2022
We enjoyed our trip with P&O. The service, food, staff were wonderful. However, our cabin had severe vibration due to it's location at the back. Other friends on board did not have this and so if you can, avoid the room at the back.
