Penny Pinching P&O

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton

Talk about tightening your belts....been with P&O now for 8 years this will be the last one our cabin on the Oriana needed updating,no more free room service menus when we asked our cabin steward he told us all had been taken out of cabins...no professional acts just staff taking 15 hours to get from Bruges to Southampton probably on 1 engine saving fuel also docking at 9.30am instead of the usual 5am can only presume its cheaper the later you dock ...then instead of staggering dis-embarkation oh no all 2000 guests had to get off at the same time 10.15am instead of from the usual 7am which is a big help when you have a 5 hour drive home.

It took 50 minutes in a queue to get off ship then another 50 minutes to get off the car park a absolute nightmare!!!!!!!! can only think that having to get out your cabin at 8am and having to sit the coffee bars for 2 hours made P&O lots of money....

Although food was nice the portions have gone alot smaller.... More

Sorry P&O but I like value for money NOT being ripped off !!!!! Less

Cabin review: Oriana a102

Desperate need of updating with new tv and stations with account on and a couple of glasses in the cabin would be good.
