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

After a fabulous 2015 Christmas and New Year trip on Oceana scoring top marks in review categories we decided to go back to what was our favourite ship so far, however too much refit work going on around the ship, too many areas blocked ... 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

As an ex Deck Cadet with P&O Cruises, this was my first experience of the present-day company, and I can only say it was a great disappointment! I have sailed with other Cruise Lines, and this was by far the worst experience. We ... Read more

What we thought would be a pleasant spring break on a 7 night cruise along the Iberian coast turned into a rather stressful experience. The dreaded norovirus had struck the ship prior to sailing so was being deep cleaned,hence a two and ... Read more

My brother, sister in law and myself took our mum on this cruise for her 80th birthday. We visited Amsterdam and Zebrugge. The cruise ship has zero wow factor. The buffet dining area is similar to that of a 2/ 3* hotel. The waiter service ... Read more
