Pacific Jewel — Ship Review Rating: 3.9 out of 5 based on 543 ratings.

Life aboard Pacific Jewel
Pacific Jewel leaves her base in Auckland (from where she sails to South Pacific islands over 8 to 15 nights, as well as run 3-night comedy-themed cruises to nowhere) and moves to Brisbane by September 2018. Then until November 2018 it is Brisbane’s chance to host 7-night cruises to both the Great Barrier Reef and South Pacific islands. After late November the ship is based in Melbourne again. From Melbourne short and long cruises visit Adelaide, Tasmania, New Zealand and Pacific islands. Pacific Jewel will sail her last voyage with P&O Australia departing Melbourne 24 February 2019, before being transferred to a new operator. (The 3,100 passenger Star Princess will join the fleet at the end of 2021. P&O has also previously announced that sister ship Golden Princess will be transformed and re-named to sail under the P&O banner from October 2020.)

Pacific Jewel has a distinctive all-white curved forwards superstructure inspired by the dolphin. She was refitted in 2018, and at 70,310 GT carries 1672 passengers. P&O cruises offer relaxation with a touch of luxury, good food and entertainment on the high seas, aimed at middle Australia. New to the ship are a Laser Tag game for all ages on the top deck, two-deck child-free Oasis, 40 inter-connecting cabins, and top-deck nightclub. The spacious domed entertainment centre features great live entertainment, comedy nights and jazz events. Children have their own facilities and areas, and there is an evening child-minding service. The ship also handles conferences and weddings, and caters for wheelchair accessibility. Pacific Jewel has received good reviews for crew, service, food and entertainment. Gratuities are included in the fare.

Accommodation
Newly upgraded staterooms come in four categories – Mini-Suite with balcony, Balcony, Oceanview and Inside – and 23 price levels (higher decks costing more). Many cabins have a third or even a fourth bed available. All cabins are spacious, with wardrobes, ensuites, and twin beds mostly convertible to queen size. Facilities include flat screen TV, fridge, personal safe, controllable AC, bathrobes and toiletries, and an interactive video system. The décor is neat and attractive. Outside cabins having a large window (or porthole in the case of a few). Forty interconnecting cabins for families and groups allow quad-quad, twin-quad, triple-triple, and twin-twin bedding.

On the upper decks 36 Mini Suites and 162 Outside staterooms come with balconies. The Mini-Suites have bathrooms with shower over bath, priority check-in, fruit and flowers on arrival, and can accommodate three or four. (Check out whether the deck 11 Suites allow for night-time quietness). Note that room-service meals come at extra charge. Nine cabins are wheelchair accessible. Cots are available for children under three years.

Food and Dining
Dining-wise, there are five eateries onboard Pacific Jewel. Dining is where and when you like: “Your Choice Dining” at the main The Waterfront Restaurant or the buffet Plantation Restaurant. Expect big ship banquet catering. The décor is bright and very colourful. Dress up for the formal dinner/s. There are three alternative (pay extra) options. The line recruited celebrity chef Luke Mangan years ago, and his Salt Grill restaurant, a steak and seafood venue, has continued its outstanding success. La Luna is a casual restaurant serving Asian cuisine. For an exceptional evening make a reservation at Chef’s Table, for a tour of the galley and commentary by the Executive Chef.

The Pantry on the lido deck, with a contemporary café vibe. Designed as an international food market, it has seven options (Hook’s Fish & Chips, Mexicana, Kettle & Bun, Fat Cow Carvery, Curry House, Stix Asian, and Sugar Bar dessert). Also on the pool deck is The Café for coffee and muffins and the like. Socialise in the atrium at Charlie’s Bar, along with coffee, cakes and other treats. In addition are daily wine tastings, master classes, and vintage seminars. Families are well catered for: Children have their own menu changed daily in the Waterfront restaurant, and they can dine early at the Plantation. The crew have a name for friendliness and the food selection is plentiful and varied.

Entertainment
The main attractions are the destinations: the South Pacific, Great Barrier Reef, and Australia’s southern states. During sea days there’s plenty of activity day and night to keep you entertained. There’s a new program of parties, and a concert-style production show. View all the action and latest movies on the Big Screen day and night on the pool deck, and at night the Lido deck presents an aerial trapeze display. Other entertainment includes Laser Light shows in the Atrium, game shows, and adults-only Sit Down Comedy Club. Forward on the top deck is The Dome with dance floor. There are five bars and a casino, much live music and karaoke. By day guests can join in a variety of organised activities such as Bingo. The shopping arcade offers fine jewellery, crystal, perfumes and fashion apparel.

P&O Edge is Australia’s largest adventure park at sea, for children and adults. Up to 19 activities include high rope swings, Walk the Plank, laser tag, slack lines, Segway obstacle courses, flying fox lines, funnel climbs and many more designed around the ship’s existing architecture. Two aft decks offer an adults-only Oasis spa area, complete with wicker beds, lounges, ottomans and a new whirlpool. There is a small Aqua Health, Spa and Fitness centre. The Children’s Centres that cater for ages 3 to 10 years is situated at the rear of the top deck. HQ and HQ+ are hangouts for 11 to 17 year olds. Leisure spaces include jogging track, whirlpool spas, library, gym and health spa.
