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

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

The Oceania Marina is the perfect cruise ship both in size and amenities. A truly excellent staff, unsurpassed food (from the Main Dining Room to the 4 specialty restaurants)! The Tea Time at 4 pm each day complete with a string quartet ... Read more

Our first cruise for some years. We did not choose Arcadia specifically, rather the itinerary and we were not disappointed. After booking, having read some of the negative reviews here, especially about Arcadia and specifically the ... Read more

Here I go writing another review in support of P & O. Having been on Azura once before and enjoying ourselves immensely, we were somewhat concerned at the less than cheery reviews of this ship and were worried we had made a big ... Read more

A trip to the Baltic! YEA. Places like Copenhagen, Helsinki and St Petersberg. Coming from the southern hemisphere a trip of a lifetime. Every port we visited was fabulous. Getting to them and back on the Azura was a trial at best. Sorry ... Read more

A couple of weeks have gone by since my husband and I disembarked the Azura in Southampton, after our Baltic cruise. So it’s time to put pen to paper – or rather jot down a few notes on the old laptop, before the memories ... Read more

In short P and O have sacrificed public space on this ship to cram more cabins in. I've never ever been on a ship (in over 20 years of cruising) where there have been such small public rooms, entertainment venues and bars, making getting a ... Read more

Britannia’s maiden cruise to the Baltic didn’t get off to the best start, with the visit to Kristiansand being cancelled due to the weather conditions. She did, however, handle those rough and windy Baltic conditions with ... Read more

Cruise Review. Embarkation; Coach from Leeds = Less stress. Still a good wait to embark, but only to be expected for that amount of passengers. Although it seemed to go faster through security than other cruises. Cabin; Pleasant. ... Read more

My wife and I have cruised P&O several times, check in was slow, with poor organization. Cabin was nice and clean, but far too small. Food on board was great. Buffet was reasonable. Food was very similar each day with small changes in ... Read more

Britannia is a great ship, but with a few little niggles. Walking around the ship you get a sense of just how large she is, especially walking down the cabin corridors. She is beautifully equipped with restaurants, coffee lounges, bars, ... Read more
