We have been a on numerous cruises but the first on P and O. The places to visit and the ship look just right. Before we went we had read many negative reviews and were naturally concerned. All I can say I am not sure what cruise they ... Read more

1st review - hope it helps. Our 5th cruise, all with P&O and we were very pleased with the ship facilities certainly better than the Oceana which we thought was a bit tired. Embarkation and debarkation were well organised. ... Read more

We usually cruise with Royal Caribbean however, last year we had our first experience with P &O when we went to the Ffords on the Azura. Although we did think that the standard of service and food were not as good as we had expected ... Read more

I read reviews prior to going on Oceana and went with an open mind. From getting on the transfer bus to embark and returning to the uk we found the whole experience a joy to behold. The inside cabin A727 was ideal for us and the steward ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit new locations e.g The Gambia, Cape Verdi, and Tenerife. Shortly before joining the ship but after having the Yellow Fever vaccination we were told that the Gambia visit had been cancelled. The ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarkation can only be described as shambolic. It seemed everyone was at the terminal at the same time and so no seats and long delays to embark. They give people a piece of paper with an allocated colour for ... Read more

We booked this section of the Arcadia's world trip in early 2015 as we were tempted by the stay in Sydney, the airline offered and the Great Barrier Reef. As an afterthought I consulted Cruise Critic and saw that many of the reviews ... Read more

We joined the world cruise in Sydney with about 1000 others. It does seem a tad disappointing fore 'around the world' cruisers that they have so many fairly transient passengers with them. The standard of the food was excellent as was the ... Read more

Following major surgery in 2011 we changed from long haul flying and first started cruising in May 2012, and solely with P & O, sailing on Arcadia, Aurora, Adonia and Britannia, so this cruise was our eighth with P&O company in ... Read more

We flew out of Gatwick to Barbados with Thomas Cook.Checked the luggage in and didn't see it again until it was brought to our cabin on the ship which was great. The seats don't recline which made for a less than comfortable night flight ... Read more

P&O UK is “British to the bootstraps” but I do believe they are trying to be something they are not, particularly in regard to dress code and maintenance. For example, the information pack provided to passengers before ... Read more

Excellent fortnight of good weather, food and entertainment. Sensible bar prices with no added 15% gratuity - so usual pub prices. Next island is the same as the last but that is the nature of the Caribbean Islands. Itinerary ... Read more

The sea crossing across the Atlantic was far too long going via Tenerife as was the crossing coming home. A possible 6 day crossing was 11days both ways with roughish seas and cold weather. A roof over the pool would have made it nicer. ... Read more
