This was our first cruise and it did not disappoint. We had been recommended to go with P&O for various reasons. In this case the destinations were good and we had two 'at sea' days. Embarkation ran like clockwork, we arrived in ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the Ports that it called at and I really enjoyed each one. Rather than do lots of excursions we explored the area in the Ports independently either through a city tour or just on foot. None of the Ports ... Read more

This was a first cruise for my husband, and my second. We chose this cruise because the ports of call interested us; P&O's Oceana just happened to be the ship. I'd started reading these forums only after we'd pretty much decided to ... Read more

As a first time cruiser I didn't really know what to expect but I had a fantastic holiday. The other option was a 5* all inclusive deal somewhere and this was much better value and not much more expensive in the school holidays. ... Read more
