12th P&O cruise in 18 months (my last!!). Oceana is being allowed to "rot" in the Med with rust everywhere. The rusting balconies are well documented. The hull is a disgrace with rust along just about every weld line. Try ... Read more

We have recently returned from a two week fly cruise on P and O’s Oceana, beginning and ending our holiday in Genoa. The first thing to highlight in this review is that it is impossible to fault P and O’s organisation of the ... Read more

Thomson flights and P&O organisation into/out of airports and cruise terminals was very good. But we got on board at 12pm and didn't see our cases until 8:30pm after we'd eaten. We had to spend all day in the clothes we travelled in ... Read more
