Cabin was kept very clean but felt dated. Biggest problem the shower it only came out in drips! Three complaints to reception which is poor one in writing eventually on day four changed the shower head took two minutes. Read entire member review >>
We were pleased with our cabin ( portside midship) on the whole, good facilities, comfy bed and tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. We were less pleased with the stained carpet and bed valance, lots of dust on the curtain tops, stained and damaged bed sheets and towels and a spectacularly disorganised cabin steward!!

Smelt of stale urine, not hoovered during our stay and having picked up several long blonde hairs from he side of the bed I doubt it had been properly cleaned for some time! Read entire member review >>
A104 a forward balcony cabin and our abode for 7 nights is well thought out and spacious, designing the cabin in such a way provides lots of clothes hanging space and plenty room to place a number of suit cases underneath. Particularly liked this as it means the rest of the main room space isn't cluttered by empty suitcases for the rest of the cruise! Nicely appointed with a dressing table, comfortable chair, fridge, flat screen TV and most importantly a comfortable bed. Being at the very front of the ship the cabin is noticeably very quiet due to its location at the end of the corridor, no constant traffic of people walking past and no engine or propulsion noises. It is at the front so expect to feel like your at sea, its a bonus for me but if you like less movement its not going to be for you! Note A104 does have a glass fronted balcony and not steel as per the P and O description, this will also apply to A103 too. Cabin steward, Wilson, 10 out of 10, very caring and great attention to detail. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean and comfortable and well serviced by Abdul the steward. We had plenty of storage space anf although the bathroom was a little small - there were plenty of clean towels and nice toiletries. We were disturbed early in the morning by people moving sunbeds on the deck above. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was okay , again décor etc looked a bit dated and tired. Cabin steward was excellent, these guys work really hard and rely on getting "EXCELLENT" from all the cabins they look after on each trip, if they don't get excellent that has an impact on their bonus from the auto gratuity , another con.

Very good location. The cabin was clean. The bed was absolutely horrible. There was also an incessant knocking behind the bed that would not be remediated without earplugs. Read entire member review >>
Deck 14 midships, a good position but noise from above and a greater noise from the music when it's played. No sun on the balcony, may be a good thing where hot.One step up and you are on the Lido deck, quite handy. The cabin size not large, enough storage, a tiny shower cubicle- don't drop your soap! The decor fairly depressing.A kettle in cabin, good point. Read entire member review >>
Balcony cabin - good wardrobe space but overall cabin was small with very little seating space i.e. no sofa
I can't believe P&O still use shower curtains
Beware of smokers!!!! Read entire member review >>
Midships cabin we had was under Venezia self-service restaurant and we had no noise from above or from adjacent cabins. We did have continuouis air-conditioning noise, mainly from corridor outside room, but I have had worse in hotel rooms in hot climates and we did get used to it. View and privacy were excellent.

We were on Australia Deck which we found quiet on most days.
Cabin A523 as expected but slightly disappointed in the size of balcony as the chair could not be put straight forward and only one foot stool so used small table as a foot stool. Read entire member review >>
Small but well designed. Walk in wardrobe. Lacking in drawer spaced. Good location being midship. Some sun shade from overhang that covers the Riviera deck above. Good position to get to the Atrium or to the rear for the buffet restaurants, seventeen, Manhattan Bars etc. Quiet, never heard corridor noise. Read entire member review >>
