We saw this 12 night cruise advertised.  The price was simply incredible and represented excellent value for money. Our only other cruise experience was three years ago on P & O's Arcadia. The itinerary was virtually the same as ... Read more

I have previously cruised with P&O once before but that was as a teen so I probably had different expectations to what I have now. I had read lots of the reviews on here and wasn't sure as to what to expect thanks to the amount of ... Read more
