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

This was my third cruise, each time we went with different cruise lines as we wanted to try a few rather than just stick with the one cruise line. We also wanted to have something to compare against. The Britannia is supposed to be ... Read more

Fjords Cruise, Azura, April 30th 2016 This was our first cruise with P&O as we usually travel with Royal Caribbean. However the itinerary, dates and last minute price of £440 pp for an inside cabin was too good to miss. We ... 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

First up I would like to point out that P&0 are normally pretty decent value for money as they tend to be cheaper than most of the other cruise lines and as such I don't expect five star and will travel with them again however not on ... Read more

Revisited Ventura as I liked the itinerary but unfortunately the weather was poor in the Canaries which is unusual. The food in the restaurants was good. A bit boring in the buffet restaurant. On the plus side the service of the staff ... Read more

This was a taster weekend to Bruges Brussels however the port was changed to Le Harve in France due to the terrorist attacks. We understood this but there is nothing to do in Le Harve and it was a terrible choice of port. Embarkation ... Read more
