I had great expectations but it was a great disappointment
Destination: South Pacific
In the rough weather the ship was on an uphill or downhill lean and when you had a shower more water was in the bathroom than in the shower. The captain did nothing to make the ship upright and comfortable for the passengers during the rough weather.
The entertainment was average except the magician and the singers had lovely voices.
The food was average and we had our evening meals at the "Waterfront Restaurant" but after a week the food was rather monotonous. The service was excellent and very friendly.
Norfolk Island was one of the ports to visit, but we were unable to get there. We heard that it is hard to land tenders there and More they have not been there for sometime, maybe it should be taken of their itinerary. Don't advertise what you cannot deliver. So an extra boring day at sea with no alternative port to visit.
The daytime entertainment was bingo, making " paper flowers and quills" and the occasional interesting talk.
The complement toiletries were 3 small bars of soap. P&O is money grabbing dirty tired old ship. The pokies were "state of the art" that it appears the money was spent there not anywhere else.
I would never travel with P&O again as it did not deliver on what it advertised . Less
Cabin review: c11116
The cabins were of a good size but dirty and tired looking in need of freshening up. The balcony was nice to have to escape from the continual "buum buum" noise from the large screen on the top deck
Lovely boutique ship
Very Good Cruise in Rainy Seas...
Great destinations, bad cruise...
