We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary but also because we had enjoyed our previous cruise with P&O onboard Ventura. We were a little put off by the low satisfaction rating on cruise Critic however were willing to take the ... Read more

The opportunity to visit so many countries in one trip was what attracted us. Copenhagen, Stockholm St Petersburg, Helsinki, Talinn and Bruges. We were very lucky to have great weather which meant we were on the top deck with swimming ... 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

Our first cruise and we chose Azura because it was going to St Petersburg. We were not sure what to expect and were somewhat apprehensive with 3000 people on board but it exceeded our expectation. Organisation was excellent getting on ... Read more

Whilst we enjoyed our cruise down to Madeira and the Canary Islands, stopping in Lisbon and Vigo on the way, it was marred by what was obviously too many people being crammed on board. On boarding, we found our balcony cabin was the ... Read more

Excellent food good choices, everything was clean, in fact our rooms were cleaned twice a day. The service of all the staff was excellent. However, I was a bit concerned that `many` of the activities was `money raising` related. It ... Read more

As a young(ish) couple of 26 & 33; we are trying cruising as an alternative to having to fly to destinations abroad (due to me being sadly scared of flying). We chose to go on the Britanna for a 7 nights Fjord trip, from Southampton, ... Read more

We were excited to experience a P and O ship after several Celebrity cruises. Upon embarkation, the first thing we noticed was the absence of a welcome drink or any staff to welcome us aboard and offer directions to the restaurants or ... Read more

I've waited nearly a year to write this so it didn't become an r,optional reaction. We chose this cruise as it was P&Os newest ship and there was a lot of hype about how good it was. The embarkation was terrible. I'd phoned up to ... Read more
