We had booked this cruise last minute as a much needed break after a difficult personal time. We wanted to leave from Southampton but weren't concerned about the itinerary. We did find Azura a big ship and I never quite mastered the ... Read more

As usual, P & O provided excellent service from all their staff and crew. Our cabin steward, Jolwyn was charming and helpful. The bar and restaurant staff were friendly and helpful too. The entertainment crew were lively and made the ... Read more

A lovely cruise, the ship is tired and a little old, but we liked it, not too big that you get lost and not too small to feel crowded. We were lucky with weather, the sunniest in 15 years we were told. We loved the being on the sea, ... Read more

My wife and I cruised on the Oceana to the Mediterranean just before Christmas 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed this ship. Deciding to cruise again on Oceana, we opted for the Fjords and visited Stavanger, Flamm, Eidfjord and Kristiansand from ... Read more

Having done a recent mini cruise aboard Azura, our first experience with P & O, we were careful not to have high expectations of this cruise on the Oceana to the Fjords. We need not have worried; we had a wonderful week aboard a great ... Read more

My wife and I have always said that cruising is not for us. We like to do our own thing preferably avoiding crowds. We do not dance but enjoy dance music and watching others also enjoy good entertainment and food but not keen on dressing ... Read more

Embarkation was slick and efficient. We drove to Southampton, free parking was part of the deal. Easy to find the berth, Parked, unloaded bags, porter whizzed them away, didn't see them again until in cabin. Car was taken away, receipt ... Read more

As usual, we travelled down to Southampton on the previous day and stayed, for the first time, in the Novotel, very close to Southampton Docks. This was a good choice and we will be using this hotel again in October when we join MSC ... Read more

... there were a couple of hiccups, which I feel it may be helpful for people to know about. The sun shone everywhere after the first day or two and it was verging on 30 degrees in St. Petersburg. Our stateroom was excellent, larger than ... Read more

I've just returned from a wonderful cruise of the Norwegian fjords aboard Arcadia. We ate every evening in the Meridian restaurant on the first sitting. We had a table for 8 and were very happy with the table mates we sat with each ... Read more

We booked a short Norwegian Fjords tour on the Arcadia. The Arcadia is adults only but the epithet applies only to age and not to any "special" activities. Prior to embarkation we were informed that the first port of call would be ... Read more

It had been a few years since we cruised with P&O (Aurora both times) and we took this cruise because it fitted with our holiday availability and we wanted to see the Norwegian Fjords. Fantastic weather great cruise but was let down by ... Read more

To temper what I am about to write, I will start by saying I never write reviews as I am aware that peoples' opinions are varied and what may be excellent to some is terrible to another. I also don't like the idea of complaining for the ... Read more

Just came back from Iceland - 12 nights. As we have booked on line before with P and O did not expect all ocean view rooms to have a lifeboat restricting our view. From what we can see from the ship most of the ocean view rooms DO have ... Read more

P&O cost cutting is becoming more and more evident. Our cruise to Iceland in perfect cruising weather and unbelievably calm seas barely averaged a speed of 12kts. We cruised all the way back at 11 kts until we slowed to 9 kts for a ... Read more

Having never cruised before we were not sure what to expect but it was delightful. We had a superior deluxe stateroom between three of us and there was a very comfortable sofa bed and masses of room for all of us. The staff worked really ... Read more

Aurora was the smallest cruise liner I’d sailed on for quite some time so I was somewhat apprehensive & fully aware I’d end up comparing it to relative giants such as IotS, Azura & Ventura. I needed not worry, our ... Read more

We embarked from Southampton on the Arcadia. It's a great ship - not huge and also no children - although as a result probably an "army" of disability scooters - not really a big problem. Arcadia has recently been refitted - and mostly the ... Read more

We had never cruised before, so all of our experiences would be brand new. The Oceana was an excellent choice for a first time cruise, we had read many of the previous reviews and now wonder how some people arrive at their assessments. ... Read more
