P & O Cruise Standards bottom of the heap
Destination: Western Caribbean
There were also some very strange, garbage type, smells in several places on the ship.
One of the days returning from the Caribbean, the water in the More Neptune Pool continued to overflow for several hours. This made this important main area impossible to use - water was swimming around the tables and chairs, normally used for eating, reading, playing cards or having a coffee. A very dangerous situation for some of the less mobile passengers. The water travelled as far as the lift areas and upto the Belvedere restaurant. The carpets took days to dry out. Why did it take so long to make the decision to empty the pool? - Bad management!!!!
The entertainment listed in the Horizon seemed to be mainly seminars by spa and gym staff - very little else.
This seemed to prove our opinion of the ship being very understaffed.
It is no wonder so many people on the ship were ill with chest infections, including us. First time we have ever been ill on a cruise. We are in agreement with many that we spoke to on the ship, we will not be cruising with P& O again. We will be returning to Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises, who still care about the passengers Less
