Cabin D211
Cabin D304
On a whole the accessible cabin was excellent for a wheelchair user plenty of turning circles within the cabin, walk in shower with a fold down chair the balcony and bathroom could be accessed in my Powerchair. We took our portable hoist on board to transfer me from my wheelchair, the hoist legs could get under the beds making it much easier to transfer and the carpet wasn't too harsh on the caster wheels on both the hoist and wheelchair. The room was right opposite the opening to the lift meaning navigating the corridors around trollies was not necessary as access to the lifts was right near the door. The only issues we had with the cabin was the cleanliness and state of the balcony, bird thesis was all over the balcony dividers and overall state of the balcony was very tired this was on the the day we arrived and opened our balcony doors. Once we asked the cabin steward to clean the mess he did the issue was solved. 5 days into our cruise a message arrived saying there were going to be doing some maintanence on our balcony as they thought in needed some tlc. This did improve the overall state of the balcony. The overall cleanness of the cabin on arrival was too a good standard. But the cabin steward did not keep this up throughout the cruise although he did the simple things fresh towels and making the beds. Vacuuming was not regular and some rubbish and used classes remainder for numerous days, the cabin was not dirty by all means but these little things were noticeable.

Cabin D236
Nice cabin it was clean but maintenance was below par. The balcony is bizarre! You are overlooked by all balconies above you and also from the top deck of the ship due the tiering design that P&O have employed. I would not pay full price for this cabin.

Cabin E726
We had initially booked an Outside (Obstructed View) cabin, but a few days before the cruise we called and upgraded to a Superior Deluxe Balcony (increasing the cabin space from around 160 sq feet to 311 sq feet). One concern about upgrading was the arrangement of the beds as we needed separate beds for our 17 year old son and 10 year old daughter – P&O confirmed that the cabin had a main bed that could be a double or twin and a double sofa bed. This meant my wife and I would need to take the sofa bed, and we were concerned as to whether it was ‘full sized’. We decided to take a chance on the sofa bed and told the kids they were getting the main bed set up as a twin. On arrival in the cabin we looked around and discovered that there was also a single bed that pulled down from the ceiling (in addition to the main bed and the double sofa bed). This was great news for us (less so for the cabin steward who had to change the main bed from twin to double), but our decision to upgrade would have been easier if P&O actually knew each cabins bed configurations. When we first received our cabin number (E726) a few days before travel, we searched the internet for any info or reviews. This resulted in some concern as we found a number of stories about the cabin suffering from bad noise from the Manhattan Club below (or in the case of the identical cabin on Ventura or the Princess ships, their respective nightclubs). We were relieved to discover that the noise was not that bad and rarely went on late (there is a little bit of thudding from the bass speakers, but nothing that would stop most people from sleeping after an active day – perhaps a light sleeper should take some ear-plugs, but most will be fine without). The quality of the cabin was good, although the cabin décor is a little conservative compared to some of the other ships we have been on. Two televisions were a nice touch (to make sure neither sleeping area missed out) but to be honest, apart from listening to the announcements they were not really used. The main bed was comfortable, my son seemed happy with the sofa bed, but the mattress on the pull down bed seemed a little lumpy. There is plenty of hanging space and shelves, but only four small drawers for underwear etc. Other facilities included a fridge, hairdryer and safe (with plenty of room for iPad’s etc). The balcony was spacious, but we did not use it very often (we were only in the cabin at the start and end of days, and given it was early April, it was not really warm enough at those times of the day). For the first time ever we had a cabin with a bath, which although not vital, was a nice addition, although I would however have happily swapped the bath for a more powerful shower (even on full blast the water only trickled out slowly).

Very roomy and clean. Only problem was with the matress, talk about backache. Why do they have to be so hard?

Cabin D217
Spacious and well equipped with two independent flat screen televisions. En-suite had bath and shower over. Poor shower-head pressure however water is at a premium when 3,100 passengers are on board. Quality White Company soaps etc. Good fluffy towels but continental quilt was a bit lacking in quality. Excellent fully reclining loungers on balcony. Annoying trumpeting noise from ships funnels at regular intervals was irritating. Good sized fridge but not quite cold enough. We both, like others suffered a debilitating chest condition attributed to the air-conditioning system that cannot be switched off in the rooms.

Cabin D Deck
A Balanced View Hampshire Home

Should have booked a port side cabin as with starboard ended up with some awful views when Docked. Cabin itself was good standard and well maintained by the steward. Some of the furniture however does need upgrade (chair legs badly damaged by being too near draws)

Cabin D515
Just the right size to relax with plenty of space to sit and ample storage. The bigger bathroom was appreciated with plenty of room in the shower over the bath vs the usual small upright showers. The balcony is quite spacious - plenty of room to sunbathe for 2 or enjoy room service. The balcony sticks out from the ship and this does mean you are overlooked, but this did not btoher us at all and meant that we were not troubled by any cigarette smoke as it all blew past us, and gave us more sun than on higher decks.

Cabin D403
New Year in Madeira Jack and Jill
D403 - Superior Balcony cabin - mid ship. Very spacious with lots of storage space, 3 seat sofa, chair and coffee table as well as 2 televisions! Walk in wardrobe was ideal. Very comfortable bed.Balcony a good size with two reclining chairs and foot stools together with a small table. This could be a problem when sunbathing as it is completely open to the decks above, so no privacy whatsoever. Worth the extra money for the size, bath as well as a shower and other touches i.e. Orchids, fresias, champagne, chocolates, magazines and fruit bowl. Very quiet with easy access to stairs and lifts.

This cabin is quite large but the balcony is not protected or covered. This makes it unusable on a sunny day. Very disappointing to us.
