The beautiful Pacific Pearl followed us in. Our last cruise was on this ship, I thought it was the best P&O ship although, having said that, I love all the cruise ships I've been on! I just thought the Pearl was set out really well, apart maybe for the Plantation Buffet (but I never really had an issue, just my cruise buddy (mum) found it a bit busy and not laid out very well).

|The Pastry Station also known as The Sweet Spot|
|And we're back|
|Bye cabin 8245, we will miss you!!|
We spent a lot of our time up on deck 9 (Lido) either by the pool or in a pod when we could find one. It's a great space, it could get busy and noisy at times but it was during school holidays and it is one of the best spots on the ship!
We love the Spirit (have been on her twice now) and we would love to go on her again but we would also LOVE to go on the Legend, hopefully sooner rather than later.
There are always so many amazing bargain cruise being advertised I am sure we'll be doing another cruise before too long. Pacific Dawn to PNG anyone????
