4.0 Editor's Rating

As a first time cruiser we chose a one week fly cruise which took in four off our top 100 places to visit. On arrival at Genoa airport we were met by the P&O team who guided us to our coaches. On arrival at the port we went through ... Read more

We have been on other cruises and this is the worst we have experienced. We made management aware several times during our stay of the issues on board, but these were never resolved. All the points in this review were told to management ... Read more

Well, just got back from our latest cruise on P&O’s Oceana and couldn’t wait to write a review. As 2 50 yrs + cruisers we tend to pick our cruise based on the itinerary as well as the ship, and have to travel in school ... Read more

Our first time on a cruise, so we were apprehensive about it but was impressed from start to finish. We boarded the plane at Cardiff with minimum fuss & next saw our cases at our cabin door. Embarkation to the ship was effortless (as ... Read more

My friend and I selected this cruise based on dates and cost. Contrary to a number of the other recent reviews we were not disappointed and had a fantastic holiday from start to finish. We opted for the flight supplement and flew from ... Read more

We (family of four) booked the cruise on the Oceana as it had the itinerary we wanted (Genoa, Florence, Naples, Dubrovnik and Venice). Having booked the cruise I then looked at some of the reviews which were not that great so was ... Read more

We chose this as it was available! We thought P and O was a reputable company. The Oceana itself is very tired, and desperately in need of upgrading and modernising. Our first impression on embarking showed it to be dark and old ... Read more

This was my first time cruising and did so with my sister. Travel agent gave us a few itinerary and this was the best. The beginning of the journey was rather smooth at the airport as P&O had staff members directing you all the way. ... Read more

I cannot begin to express how appalling this cruise was. We embarked, school day style in Genoa on the 13th July and were released, thankfully, on the 20th July. The onboard experience was awful from the start. Another queue was ... Read more

This was our first cruise and it did not disappoint. We had been recommended to go with P&O for various reasons. In this case the destinations were good and we had two 'at sea' days. Embarkation ran like clockwork, we arrived in ... Read more

Nothing but praise for P&O from start to finish. I've read some negative reviews and I started to wonder if these people are on the same planet as me??? I guess some people have a downer on life and look for someone or something to ... Read more

As first time cruisers and my wife in particular not 100% behind the idea, we decided on a 7 night taster around Italy and touching Dubrovnik. P&O were recommended to me by family and friends and we selected Oceana as it was the only ... Read more

The food, shore excursions,travel arrangements and staff were excellent, our problem was lack of sunbeds it ruined the cruise. To blame passengers for keeping their towels on the beds seemed wrong they must provide enough beds. Until ... Read more
