We chose this cruise specifically for the itinerary as it went to many ports we hadn't previously visited and some we had not been to for a long time. Embarkation and disembarkation both went smoothly We had an inside cabin on F ... Read more

Took this short cruise for a short break to celebrate New year away from home. The best bit about P and O cruises is the Sindu restaurant. Ate here twice in 5 nights. This was a typical cruise ship food and entertainment. Very ... Read more

Our first cruise on Arcadia was somewhat disappointing, what with a Norovirus outbreak on board, drainage problems (buckets collecting leaks) and a very disappointing entertainment programme. The food (1st sitting in the Meridian) was ... Read more

We wanted a Christmas break and saw the Baltic cruise advertised, which seemed o fit the bill perfectly having only done warm Christmas breaks before. The embarkation was slow but I would say average for a ship of this size, although ... Read more

Ship (Arcadia) was reportedly all good prior to booking our cruise, Unfortunately once on board we noticed this terrible smell on prom deck which seemed to go throughout the ship. Buckets catching leaks from what could have been waste ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were not disappointed. We booked a mini suite and well worth it for the extra space and little extras (spa bath, toiletries, champagne and canopies) a big balcony - constant hot water - a very comfortable ... Read more

We chose this cruise in order to visit Christmas markets and see some places we'd never been before; namely Hamburg, Copenhagen and Oslo. The ship and the ports for the most part did not disappoint. It was our first time on Aurora. To be ... Read more

Our second voyage aboard Aurora and once again totally wonderful, from the moment we stepped aboard, till the moment we disembarked. As you walk aboard, a friendly crew member is there to welcome you and hand you a map of the ship. I ... Read more

We have travelled with P&O only once before on Ventura on a short break, and wanted to give them a go on a week long cruise on Britannia. We normally travel with Princess and I have to say they would still be my favourite. However, ... Read more

I guess all experiences relate to price paid so we'll start with that. We always choose an inside cabin as we spend so little time in it. At £585 for a week in the Fjords in August booked two months ahead this was quite a bargain. ... Read more

We chose this cruise to Norway as it fitted in with our leave dates, and was a destination that we had not been to before. We have been on 3 previous cruises (all with different carriers), so also wanted to see how P&O compared to the ... Read more

The Baltic is indeed lovely but I would not advise going with P and O. The ship is attractive and the waiters and room stewards are delightful. The food is good. However, this ship has problems. It could do with a thorough clean. ... Read more

Was a bit apprehensive as I had an 'OK' experience on the Britannia last year to the Canaries. Need not have worried as the ship was much better. I did not have a bad meal. The lunchtime Sindhu 'tapas' menu for £4.95 was ... Read more

It seemed to take time for things to warm up on the ship (atmosphere wise) but did improve and we met some great people. This was our 4th trip now with P&O and whilst we enjoyed it we didn't seem to get the same feeling as we did on ... Read more
