Embarkation and Disembarkation Embarkation was good and with a time set for embarkation you know what time to arrive. We arrived early due to us stopping in a hotel the night before and had to sit and wait as did other people who ... 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

There was three of us sharing a balcony cabin on our first cruise. Two adults and a child. Staff on board the ship can't do enough for you. They must work so very hard at making it look so easy. Dining was excellent, lots of ... Read more
