We chose this cruise as it included places we have always wanted to visit. It was our first cruise. The embarkation was very smooth and we were able to pop into Venice to see some of the sights. My only complaint would be the distance to ... Read more

We booked this cruise as a last minute getaway with the intention of not getting off and spending the day in the spa and eating. P&O wouldn't normally be my first choice of cruise line and after the cruise, I would actually have to say ... Read more

Great cruise which took in Cadiz, Messina, Corfu, Dubrovnik, Venice & Gibraltar. Past P & O cruisers but our first time on Aurora. Lovely sized ship - not too big. Atmosphere felt very friendly & relaxed - maybe as the average ... Read more

Had a fantastic week aboard on my first cruise. I can hardly fault anything on board, with the food service being outstanding, so much entertainment on offer, and lovely bars and spots on the ship to relax. The boarding process was ... Read more

Just one of those cruises we felt we had to do and with the offer of a dog sitter we were really looking forward to our trip to the Norwegian fjords. We had seen mixed reviews about the Britannia but boarded with an open mind. Plus ... Read more

Well, just got back from our latest cruise on P&O’s Oceana and couldn’t wait to write a review. As 2 50 yrs + cruisers we tend to pick our cruise based on the itinerary as well as the ship, and have to travel in school ... Read more

Our first time on a cruise, so we were apprehensive about it but was impressed from start to finish. We boarded the plane at Cardiff with minimum fuss & next saw our cases at our cabin door. Embarkation to the ship was effortless (as ... Read more

We chose this as it was available! We thought P and O was a reputable company. The Oceana itself is very tired, and desperately in need of upgrading and modernising. Our first impression on embarking showed it to be dark and old ... Read more

The worst 17 nights on board I can recall. P & O have lost the plot. They are only concerned about getting people on board, not about how they look after them. It may be a few years since we travelled with them and I know that ... Read more

Nothing but praise for P&O from start to finish. I've read some negative reviews and I started to wonder if these people are on the same planet as me??? I guess some people have a downer on life and look for someone or something to ... Read more

We chose this ship and cruise as we have had excellent holidays with P and O in past few years. Also we chose to sail from Southampton instead of a fly cruise as my husband is unable to fly due to a medical condition. We had previously ... Read more

There was three of us sharing a balcony cabin on our first cruise. Two adults and a child. Staff on board the ship can't do enough for you. They must work so very hard at making it look so easy. Dining was excellent, lots of ... Read more
