We fancied seeing the Caribbean and sailing across the Atlantic. Our first cruise was not a disappointment! P&O were very organised and we experienced no hassle. From embarkation to the easiest disembarkation at Southampton, ... Read more

We go nearly every year to the Caribbean because we like getting away from the cold/ wet weather and love the laid back atmosphere of the islands The Azura is a lovely ship kept very clean and the staff are mostly very happy and ... Read more

We spent 19 nights on the P&O Aurora from Singapore to Sydney as part of her 2017 World Cruise. Overall it was an enjoyable experience with a few problems along the way. The weather proved to be a problem because before we got to ... Read more

This is the second time we've opted for a long stay cruise on this ship. The embarkation and disembarkation procedure is first class. The ship is immaculately clean and every where you see bright, sparkling surfaces. We never look for ... Read more

We wanted to explore the Caribbean and had heard some good reports about P and O. The ship and holiday largely met our expectations. However,In our opinion there were too many formal nights....four out of fourteen is surely over the ... Read more

I'm not into comparing ship with ship, as they are all different, and deserve to be treated as individuals! She is a beautiful, stylish ship, with stunning public areas. (The most fantastic décor can be found in the Sindhu ... Read more

Before our cruise we wee very concerned at some of the reviews we read as they seemed to show Britannia in a bad light. Transfer from plane to ship was effortless and within 20 minutes of arriving at the terminal we were on board. ... Read more

Our first time on Oceana and we found it to be a bright and well decorated ship. We particularly liked the Atrium open area which extends through 4 decks in the middle of the ship with glass fronted lifts gliding efficiently up and down. ... Read more

Two captains, two deputy captains, two entertainment managers and eighty two nights later, we reflect on a much anticipated cruise experience. Positives: Arcadia is a comfortable ship...like an old armchair. Overall, the dining ... Read more

Although we did not like the look of a block of flats that is Britannia or any of the mega ships, we booked a standby in mid December as it was cheap, with a direct flight from Manchester and offered the chance for winter sun and to visit ... Read more

On arrival in Barbados the organization by P&O was excellent, straight off the plane onto coaches and then onto the ship. We arrived at embarkation and within twenty minutes we were onboard Britannia. The ship is beautiful, our balcony ... Read more

Took this short cruise for a short break to celebrate New year away from home. The best bit about P and O cruises is the Sindu restaurant. Ate here twice in 5 nights. This was a typical cruise ship food and entertainment. Very ... Read more

Overall this was a pleasure with, if I want to be picky, a few grouches. Ship can get a bit overcrowded and shovey if you turn up at peak times for meals in buffet restaurants. Also, to be sniffy, some passengers would seem ... Read more

P&O Cruise Ref: X620. If I could give this ship 0/5 for a review I would, but as I can't I'll have to rate it as 1/5. The ship was due to go into port for a re-fit straight after this cruise & to be honest I wouldn't bother ... Read more

The itinerary was good with some varied and interesting ports. As usual some of the excursions were quite expensive and it is always advisable to try to book your own if possible. The reviews we read before the cruise did put us off a ... Read more
