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

It was a first time with P&O. Previously we had cruises with Norwegian Jade and AIDAstella. We wanted to see the new brand ship with really british traditions. We are a couple at age 60 and 59. Mostly the cruise was very good, ... Read more

This was the first time we have travelled with P & O and,regrettably, it will be the last. We booked this cruise because it had the itinerary at the time of year that we wanted, not because of the ship. Reading the reviews (after ... Read more

This was our second cruise, the first being on the Carnival Spirit to Alaska 2 years ago. I had read quite a few negative comments about P&O in general and the Arcadia in particular on this site so I was slightly cautious about the ... Read more

  We are newcomers to cruising, although not to the use of ships as means of transport. With one short cruise on QM2 earlier in the year, we thought we would try a cruise during the darker months of the year. The Adonia cruise took ... Read more

Having purchased what seemed like a really really great last minute bargain on the P&O Azura, we were really quite chuffed with ourselves, so around a week after purchasing we found ourselves onboard! First Impressions: Ship is only ... Read more

We wanted to spend some time with my brother & sister-in-law, they live near Bournemouth, we live in Canada so we thought a short cruise out of Southampton would be perfect. This ship is 19 years old and frankly should be scrapped it ... Read more

We have only been on one cruise prior to this one and that was on the Royal Carribean "Adventure of the Seas" to the Med. That was a truly amazing experience so my review of Oceana is based on a comparison with our last cruise. Prior to ... Read more

My friend Jill and I had never cruised before and chose this to enable us to visit St Petersburg. We hadn't really considered the ship, but certainly chose well for our first one. The ship provided all we wanted and although we had been ... Read more

We had cruised on Oriana on her first year 95 and again on a Baltic cruise 2000 , after reading a few reviews of how poor she was looking we were very pleasantly surprised of her near immaculate condition for a 19 year old ship . Oriana ... Read more

As this was our first cruise, we were a bit anxious about what we were going to experience. We chose this cruise because the departure from Southampton tied in with our further travel plans, for the ports of call and duration of the ... Read more
