Unlike some I didn't experience any poor service at all. In fact I preferred the style compared to American ships I've been on which I tend to find the staff too intrusive. Similarly the embarkation and disembarkation went very well indeed ... Read more

Fabulous cruise. Service and food was great. Great entertainment. 1. They need to sort out spaces for wheel chair people and mobile scooters, to sit in the theatre, as they blocked the emergency exit most nights on the right hand side. ... 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

First time on the Arcadia. I wasn't sure if I would like it or not as there was no Atrium. It took a few days to work out where things where. I will definitely choose the Arcadia again. Lifts on the outside were great. Everyone was so ... Read more

We have been on several P&O cruises before but first time in Brittania. We had seen some bad reviews so we're concerned about Brittania but glad to say these were unfounded. The ship has modern bright decor and is fairly easy to ... Read more

We had cruised on Ventura last September and were a bit anxious about such a big ship as we had found Britannia not to our taste. However we loved her and so were happy to book again for this May.Arrived in Southampton at 1pm for our timed ... Read more

We have cruised many times with P & O, preferring Azura for Caribbean holidays, but decided to try a smaller ship, i.e. Oceana. The price was reasonable and as a seven night cruise was a good way of deciding whether we would like the ... Read more
