Enough room for 2 with no crush, good beds. Balcony standard size is big enough for 2 you can lay both beds flat with a little rearranging. Bathroom facilities are ok toiletries are very good. Could do with more hangers (wife forgot the extras she normally brings). Read entire member review >>
I had a decent hair drying but a fellow traveller had one which overheated and fused wiring.
gorgeous fresh towels were provided daily if requested and good attention was given to necessary extras such as toilet paper and tissues. I never had to request top ups in coffee and tea. My bed was very comfortable. I hope the carpet was cleaned after my occupation since it was definitely getting a little grubby.
Overall the cabin was a pleasure to be in. Read entire member review >>
Once the public toilet smell was eliminated all was great with the cabin. It was spacious and. The bed was comfy. One of the TVs was broken but we didn't need two anyway. The balcony was great just ruined by people next door. Read entire member review >>
R748 WE ENJOYED THE PEACE AND QUIET BEING AT THE AFT OF THE SHIP. WE HAD THE SUN ON THE BALCONY ALL DAY AND DID NOT HEAR MUCH FROM ABOVE SUNDECKS, WE WERE OVERLOOKED BUT SO ARE MOST BALCONIES.VERY HANDY FOR THE VENEZIA BUFFET DINER.THE BEST LOCATION WE HAVE HAD IN 5 CRUISES.

C701 was almost perfect. towards the Aft of the ship but the first cabin after the mid ships ones. Very quiet location. larger than average balcony. Open wardrobes. Small shower room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was more like a hotel room than a ship's cabin and all the cabins on C deck enjoy a double width balcony that was absolutely great on sea days as you could have both sun and a little shade too if you wished. There was absolutely no noise, very well soundproofed, our cabin steward could not have looked after us any better (we loved the chocs on our pillow each night and the towel creations he made for us, an elephant, a dog (complete with a Beware of the Dog sign!) and a hanging orang-utan, so very clever and most enjoyable.

C708. Spacious cabin with "half covered, half undercover" balcony area. Ideal for sitting in sun or shade, whatever your preference. Good cabin layout..through the door bathroom to the right with a very large open wardrobe at the side. Much better than wardrobes with doors .. you can see all your hanging items at a glance !
We had bed in Queen configuration which was extremely comfortable with very soft sheets (can only surmise they were very high Egyptian cotton count). Decor stylish with greens and browns with subdued lighting at the balcony window. Nautical prints on the walls added to the ambience. Ample fridge space and cupboard space with very good powerful hairdryer. Fast boil kettle with box of supplies for tea/coffee making. Read entire member review >>
Please read main review. The C-cabins - midship - were great - quiet, spacious balconies and very little ship noise or movement. The B-cabins at the rear had slightly smaller balconies, and one of those had a partial obstruction, but still plenty of space. The B-cabins suffered from some engine noise and vibration although we didn't notice it after the first night. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was well proportioned with plenty of room for 2 people, the balcony was used daily to just sit and watch the scenery go by,even if it was raining the balcony was sheltered and we could sit outside.
Hensley our steward kept the cabin spotless.
This cabin is located quite close to the front of the ship and whenever we were in the cabin it was quiet. Read entire member review >>
Bathroom very small with an unhygenic curtain rather than fixed doors. The provision of tea and coffee and a refrigerator in our cabin was welcome.
P & O's policy of allowing passengers to smoke on their balcony did restrict our use of the balcony. This policy needs amending to reflect the current policy of many other cruise lines. Read entire member review >>
Balcony, reasonable size, for which we were pleased to be able to spend some time on our own, without having to queue for a seat. Due to the closeness to the next balcony one heard all the conversations being carried on.Actual cabin not a great deal of drawer space; had we been going on a long cruise there would not have been sufficient drawer space for clothes. Liked the open Wardrobe. Fridge good, but not necessary; Bathroom tiny; good job we are only slim.!!!!!!!!!!!!
Duvets not very big, kept losing them in the night(.would have liked my one fresia replaced) Lighting over dressing table too high up. Had to use the Bathroom to do my make up. Read entire member review >>
Brilliant use of area. Mirrors ensured light and illusion of space. Bathroom more than adequate. Lots of hanging and shelf space. Safe was very sensible. Corner unit ideal for TV tea facilities and very useful fridge. Decor could not be bettered. Read entire member review >>
