It all started so well. Just a short break to celebrate my retirement. The journey from our home in Somerset was one of the best we have ever had as it was Easter Sunday and there were no shops open! We arrived at Southampton and ... Read more

We cruise often, 30+ with different cruise companies. We find embarkation on PO so slow and drawn out, sitting for hours on end with a letter in your hand waiting to hear yours to be called, or turn up about 2.30pm and you don't have to ... Read more

We had cruised on Britannia around Caribbean in January, and had a wonderful time, so were a bit apprehensive of taking a short break just over to Bruges. However, it was my friend's 60th, so the 15 of us joined her. We had a great time. ... Read more

Just back from Oceana, cruised from Southampton to Malta. The embarkation day started with a coach pick up from Manchester airport to Southampton as we would be flying back from Malta because the ship will be relocating and based there ... Read more

P & O have improved their performance since my last cruise with them. Embarkation was a breeze and our bags arrived in the cabin shortly after we did. Best departure we have had. Cabin staff were polite and efficient and there ... Read more

We needed a break in the sun and this cruise suited us - dates and location. Fist time with P&O. We enjoyed it very much but potential customers (and P&O) need to be aware of several niggles. Firstly although part of the same group ... Read more

We had heard really positive things about P&O, and so chose them to be our first cruise. We selected a mini cruise of four nights to give us a chance to explore the ship. Before sailing we read some reviews and forums here and were ... Read more

Only our second cruise having been on the Island Princess for a 12 night Mediterranean cruise last August so in comparison I'm afraid the Brittania cruise to the Norwegian Fiords fell a bit short. Embarkation and Debarkation was well ... Read more

First time sailing with P&O, but it certainly won't be the last. Embarkation went smoothly and our balcony cabin on B deck was well looked after by Alberto, whose courteous and friendly manner made us feel so welcome. Having lots ... Read more

Chose this cruise because of a 'big' birthday, wish we'd waited another 2/3 weeks because the weather wasn't too good in the ports, the sea was calm though even across the bay of Biscay. I've cruised around 10 times, not on a ship this ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the destination itinerary, but was recommended P&O by a family member. The destinations did not disappoint and we thoroughly enjoyed each day on land. Our biggest cruise disappointment was the lack of any ... Read more

We chose this cruise as my husband had never been on a cruise before and we wanted to see if he liked it. We expected a 2 night cruise to be a 'party cruise' with hen dos and stag parties, and this was fine. The ship is enormous and so we ... Read more
