Has P&O dumbed down to far: Oceana Cruise Review by Stephen James

Has P&O dumbed down to far
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
A small minority of bar waiters walked about like automatons and some just stood in front of you waiting for you to order they never spoke throughout the whole process. I wonder if this has something to do with the compulsory tipping they have introduced. I have only ever gone with them because of the excellent service but if this is how far they have sunk I shall be looking elsewhere.
I have no objection to portion control as on other cruises there was lots of wasted food however 6 chips and 12 baked beans in a small ramekin at More one lunch is taking it to far.
Afternoon tea in the restaurant used to be the highlight but not any more again thanks to poor service such as no explanation as to what the sandwiches were and having to ask for scones etc. The overall experience was good but it was spoilt by the poor service.
I do not recognise P&O from this trip or from the description given by the managing director in the on board video. There is a problem with this company. Less
