An excellent start to cruising. The flight from Manchester was ridiculously early which meant our first day was a bit of a washout as we were to tired to see Venice. This was made up for by the views from the balcony leaving port ... Read more

Just a bit of background.... We have cruised with NCL once, around a dozen times with Thomson and this is our third time on Oceana. This is more of a comparison between P&O and Thomson than a review. We are a middle aged couple ... Read more

Arcadia cruise 9-20 December 2014 cruise J421 Our first impression was a good one as we arrived at the new Mayflower Teminal. It is very well designed and set out, much improved on the "shed" we were in in 2008. We had to wait two hours ... Read more

This is the third cruise we have had with P & O over 7 years but the adults only Arcadia was by far the worst. The cruise is mainly targeted at elderly people and the average age must have exceeded 80 years during our voyage. Standards ... 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

We thought that we would try a fortnight in the Eastern Med/Adriatic and see Venice from a reasonably big boat before the rumoured restrictions are put into place. Now this is neither our first cruise with P&O, nor our first fly/cruise ... Read more

This is now about the 8th or 9th cruise review that I have created, and 3 of these were on Azura and Ventura, so you might think there was little more that could be said, unfortunately for P&O that is not the case because IMO there is ... Read more

This is an old ship which has been adapted for wheelchair users in an appalling way. Bedrooms are small and compact which has little space to accommodate a fold up wheelchair or small mobility scooter. We had our bed in a queen size set ... Read more
