Great itinerary, poor ship
"The good points - drinks were very good value (can only compare to Cunard & Royal Caribbean), but you don't have to pay a service charge on each drink, so a pint of lager was only about £4.This was our first cruise with P&O, so was unsure what to expect...."Read More

I chose this cruise because of the destinations and because of a person's recommendation. Unfortunately it was a disaster. We arrived late on New Years Eve so had no time to change - we had the evening meal in the buffet and we were not asked if we wanted a drink of wine or beer - we could get water from a machine. 1st January - we went to the dining room as it was a black tie night - ...

Food was poor and we resorted to paying extra but to no avail Poor food, Shockingly poor service, management admitted staff were not trained. Expect to wait upto 40 minutes for a drink Ran out of bear half way through Formal nights expect people in shorts and flip flops Entertainment is either by video or cheap pub entertainment- seriously nothing special or luxurious as advertised ...

Have cruised with P&O since 2004, and can unhappily say that this cruise was the most disappointing and not up to the standards I expected. On the plus side, it is still an advantage to have the flights included which means you don't have to collect your luggage at the arrival airport, you are taken straight from the plane to the port, next time you see your luggage is in your cabin, and on ...

This was our first P&O fly cruise – the festive Caribbean Christmas Cruise, departing from Birmingham on Dec 16th for 2 weeks. We have cruised with P&O before, but a long time ago, we more frequently cruise with Princess & Royal Caribbean. We were attracted by the itinerary on offer & the fact that it was a fly/cruise package. I did quite a lot of research on CruiseCritic (thanks again to ...

Currently still cruising and on our last two days in the Carribean, have cruised with P&O since 2010, this is our final time with them. The take it our leave it attitude is awful, make a complaint and no-one follows up on it, cancel trips at a moments notice because of not enough uptake by passengers so it's not worth their while running... never mind the customer who is looking forward too and ...

Having been on a few Caribbean cruises previously with P&O (on Ventura and Azura) we thought we knew what to expect when venturing onto Britannia a few weeks ago…. The flight out from Gatwick on the TUI Dreamliner was great as expected and also it was a very smooth operation on getting registered etc at the port and getting onto the ship to get our cruise cards etc. Our suitcases also arrived ...

This was my first cruise and will certainly be my last. My wife went on a similar cruise with her mother on the Azura. When she got back I never heard the end of how good it was. The cabin, the food, the shows, it sounded like the holiday of a lifetime. That was pre COVID-19, so we decided that this year we would repeat the experience and booked a pre Christmas holiday. The first thing that hit me ...

Cruise B227 Nov 2022 A very disappointing cruise. Issues in no particular order. Absolutely deafening noise from the headliners theatre late night shows travelled up through the fabric of the ship to the passenger cabins. The walls of my cabin were reverberating. I attended one of the musical shows and my ears were ringing afterwards, which is when I realised where the sound was coming ...

Walk on board it’s dark and colourless, drab dark wood walls, and following COVID an awful lot of formalities. Spend a day or so, with an open mind. It will grow on you. The staff, seem hand picked to please you. The food, if repetitive over a few weeks, is good, really good. If you are of an age, go to the main dinning rooms for proper service. The buffet for quick and easy, mount your plate ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We chose this cruise as we love the Caribbean and it fit in to my work holidays. This was our first ever cruise so needless to say we were really excited about going. Not sure if we chose the wrong cruise (too many sea days in a row), if Covid had an impact or our expectations were just too high but I can honestly say we were underwhelmed. The port days and the organised excursions were ...
