The ship itself is beautiful but apart from the food everything else you have to pay for. There are a few activities that you can do for free but mainly movies and talkies in different subjects. Also some actitivies like line dancing that are scheduled in the morning would be better in the afternoon especially on the eastern voyage where you loose an hour every night.
There is a nice spa on board but you need to pay to use it.
Some classes you need to pay to do it.
Some exercise classes you need to pay to do it.
The photographies are very expense U$ 25.00 a shot. Some which take the photographers less than 3 seconds to take.
The food was ok but not great, certainly not better than any other cruise I have taken and the selection at the buffet not as varied. Service slow. The afternoon tea was good in the Queens Room.
If taking the the eastern voyage I recommend the first seating as with loosing an hour every night if you got to the after show dinner and a drink when you see it is 2 o'clock before you go to bed.
The white star service is not different from any other cruise. Maybe carnival who owns most cruise companies should look at their own P&O and see how they do it.
